Rural Property Appraisals

Our agricultural valuation professionals combine years of practical, local land market experience with the latest in appraisal technology to provide our clients a clear picture of a property’s value and potential.  UFARM appraisers have experience completing reports for estate valuation, loan collateral, sales analysis and property partition.

United Farm and Ranch Management has certified rural appraisers on staff offering fee appraisals through each of our offices. We provide documented market value estimates. Every appraisal is carefully researched, written to withstand challenge, and will provide a clear, precise picture of property value.

Appraised value is important for all of the following:
• Buying, selling, exchanging, or dividing real estate
• Estate planning and gifting
• Loan evaluations
• Litigation
• Property tax evaluation appeals
• Condemnation proceedings
• Eminent domain for roadways, pipelines, electrical lines, etc.

Rural property appraisals are available through each of our four regional offices in Nebraska.  Please contact Dean Batie from our Kearney office or Rod Johnson from our Norfolk office, if you are interested or email
