Buying and selling farms and estates

Buying or selling a farm or estate

Adding value and maximising returns for clients purchasing and selling land, farms and estates.

If your objective is to add value or maximise returns, whether from buying or selling agricultural land and property, our professionals can help you. Our services cover the complete range; from selling single fields to marketing the country’s grandest estates. Drawing on our commercial and marketing expertise we advise clients on the best method of sale; whether to sell as a whole or to divide into lots; and not least the best pricing strategy.

We will help you buy wisely, with an eye to making your landholding work, whether it’s a lifestyle or financial return you are looking for.

As a result of our long established network of offices and agents, as well as our pre-eminent position in the market place, we have gained a profile that attracts local, national and international buyers. We liaise with the legal team to ensure that transactions progress smoothly, seeing them through to completion and beyond if needed.

What matters most, to us and to our clients, is achieving the best result. That might be the right price or the right terms. Our detailed knowledge and ability to work to individual briefs, seeking and finding the right buyers and properties to meet our clients’ exact specifications, adds value throughout the process. All this has led to Savills becoming market leaders, dealing with more UK farmland than any other agent, based on all land publicly marketed over 50 acres.

Buying a farm or estate

The ownership of farms and estates is tightly held and any opportunities are limited with many properties changing hands privately. Through our experts based strategically around the country, we have the knowledge of new opportunities.

Our aim is to secure the right property, at the right price and on the right terms for you.

Selling a farm or estate

We offer a complete sales service including access to many specialist departments within our business, such as planning, country house consultancy, building surveying and farm management  – and our highly acclaimed researchers and innovative PR and marketing departments help to tailor the marketing of your property to a local, national and international audience.
