United Country Named Among America’s Top Brokerages by The Land Report®

Share |

May 7, 2013 – (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – The Land Report recently named United Country Real Estate among the top real estate land brokerage companies in the nation in the article, “America's Best Brokerages.” Closing over $2 billion in land sales annually, United Country is the largest land brokerage listed in this special report, which evaluated the nation’s leading land brokerages based on 2012 sales results.

United Country Real Estate experienced a dramatic rise in 2012 sales, resulting in a 27.6-percent increase in annual sales volumes versus 2011.

“While we are pleased by a solid performance for the 2012 calendar year, we are especially excited about our growth in closed sales of larger ‘investment grade’ farm, ranch, recreational and timberland properties with sale values ranging from $1 million to $50 million,” said Dan Duffy, chief executive officer for United Country Real Estate. “In addition to this over 40 percent increase in land sales, we have seen resurgence in sales of residential homes in the smaller city and towns we serve, which grew by over 12 percent. We also viewed large gains in residential auction sales – 41 percent better than 2011 – as this marketing method continues to gain in popularity.”

United Country’s 2012 sales number showed farmland continues to show its value to investors, with triple-digit gains over the previous year.

“Farmland showed amazing growth in the land category with roughly 100-percent increase in both volume and acres sold system-wide year-over-year,” said Jason Cole, chief financial officer of United Country Real Estate. “United Country also delivered record farm sale prices for their selling clients throughout the country, especially in Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and Iowa.”

The rise in land sales and prices is great news for many sellers, who have taken advantage of the high demand for prime land by bringing their properties to the market using both conventional and auction sales. Through United Country’s website, www.UnitedCountry.com, buyers are able to search tens of thousands of listings for both traditional land for sale and land auctions across the nation based on specific property details as well as desired location and price.
