Top 13 US real estate brokerages for land

Top 13 US real estate brokerages for land - United States - property broker - land property

The Land Report, a magazine devoted to land ownership, has released its second annual list of the nation's best real estate brokerages specializing in land.

The list is based on the self-reported sales volume of brokerages' land transactions in 2011. Because many of the deals involved confidentiality agreements, the magazine used listing prices to gauge sales volume for closed deals. Brokerages that represented both buyer and seller could claim double the sales volume.

Properties that were primarily residential, commercial or industrial were excluded from the tally.

Farmland values have been spiking of late, reaching all-time highs across much of the Midwest in the fourth quarter, the magazine reported. In Nebraska and Kansas, for example, the value of nonirrigated farmland rose 37.8 percent and 24.1 percent year over year, respectively.
