Improvements are included in the sales and have not been deducted. The value of improvements, and factors such as soils, wetlands, and other elements can change per acre rates on individual farms drastically. A qualified appraiser can provide a more detailed value analysis of resales, such as when using this information to inform buying or selling decisions. This information is intended, but not promised or guaranteed to be current, complete, or up-to-date and should in no way be taken as an indication of future results.
