Asked December 1, 2016, 3:00 PM EST

We want to sell around 5 acres of ground to our children to put a house on. We want to know the value of the ground in Ringgold County. It is in Section 27 of Tingley Township.

Greetings,

The Ag Decision Maker land value page is http://www.extension.iastate.edu/agdm/wdvalues.html . On Tuesday morning results of the 2016 survey were released. While the publication http://www.extension.iastate.edu/agdm/wholefarm/pdf/c2-70.pdf does have a Ringgold county value on page 4, note that it is an average reported for a survey. Each parcel has a unique set of attributes, and we advise that people have a professional appraisal before entering into a transaction. Accredited Rural Appraisers can be found at the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers site http://www.asfmra.org .
