Long Term, High Yielding CRP Investment Opportunity in Eastern Iowa


Attention land investors: Whitetail Properties Real Estate is excited to offer this high-earning CRP tract near the intersection of Highway 218 and the English River. An annual income of $25,511 pencils out a 4% gross return on investment at asking price. There are two CRP contracts: 51.16 acres of CP23 Wetland Restoration Habitat pays $16,931/yr. through 2030 ($190,473 remaining payout as of 7/1/19) and 33.10 acres of CP23 Wetland Restoration Habitat pays $8,580/yr. through 2021 ($19,305 remaining payout as of 7/1/19). Since nearly all of this land is in the floodplain, it should be a strong candidate to continue enrollment in future CRP opportunities. Don’t overlook the hunting either - this habitat makes the thickest whitetail cover that I’ve ever been around, and there is significant deer sign throughout. Flooded ponds attract waterfowl as well, rounding out this excellent income-producer into a capable hunting tract. Call the listing agent for a private showing.
