The southwest properties selling for millions

FOR the first time in 140 years, Roma property Plain Farm sold at auction for a whopping $2.02 million.

The prime Hodgson property was purchased by the owner's ancestors in about 1880.

Marketing agent Daven Vohland, Elders, said neighbours, Shaun and Amanda Nolan purchased the property.

The sale price equated to $1653 an acre.

There were five registered bidders, three of which were active.

The property is well-known as prime farming land with self-mulching pliable fertile soils. It has produced up to two tonne of wheat an acre in the past.

"I think it ultimately came down to the soil type and its location," Mr Vohland said.

"It had heavy chocolate self mulching soils and in the past had two grown two tonne of wheat - it had performed well."

The property is located 15km from Roma, situated right at Hodgson and adjacent to the Warrego Hwy making it ideal for a cattle depot, backgrounding or farming enterprise.
