Land, Farms & Estates Market Update

    In the East, we have seen an extraordinary five years with land prices rising on average 138% and in some areas over 160%. The envy of most other assets.

    Lack of supply and strong demand from investors as well as farmers looking to expand have pushed prices up. We expect 2011 to remain a sellers’ market with premium prices for quality commercial farms. It will be more price sensitive for poorer quality and less favourable locations.

    So in these unprecedented times should you buy, sell or hold?  For those looking to retire or with no successors, now may be an opportunity to take a profit.  For commercial farmers, is it the right time to expand? And with investors buying, this could be a good moment to look at sale and farm back arrangements.
