Comparable Land Sales Database

Through this database, the public can retrieve reports of farm land sold within a rural municipality (RM) or within a one-to nine-mile radius from a given legal land description (LLD Search).

1. Land Searches

Sales data for the Comparable Land Sales Database is received from Information Services Corporation (ISC) biweekly. Assessment data is provided by the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) annually. Soil Class data comes from Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC).

Information is not changed or modified in any way. The Ministry of Agriculture merges the data as received into a report. The user may choose to include any or all of the following information on their report:

  • Sale Date
  • Legal Land Description (LLD)
  • Rural Municipality (RM)
  • Soil Class (A,B,C with A being the highest class)
  • Sales Code (FAM = Family Sale, ARM = Arm's length Sale)
  • Acres
  • Municipal Assessment (100% of the SAMA assessed value)
  • Price
  • Price/Acre

The user may sort the report by any one of the following:

  • Date
  • Legal Land Description (LLD)
  • Rural Municipality (RM)
  • Soil Class (A,B,C with A being the highest class)
  • Sales Code (FAM = Family Sale, ARM = Arm's length Sale)
  • Acres
  • Price

An RM search is based on the RM number or any town within that RM. An LLD search requires the user to enter the section, township, range, meridian and a search factor of one to nine miles. The LLD search will then cross RM boundaries.

Reports generally appear immediately, but larger searches may take a few minutes to generate. Once the report is on screen, the user has the option of a printer friendly version, a PDF version (Adobe Reader required) and an active Excel spreadsheet version. The user may return to the original report and choose all three options. These additional formats do not incur additional charges. The report will not be saved to a user’s account after the search window has been closed.

To get an idea of the information included in the report, view this LLD Search Sample Report.
