Published: 06/01/2023 By Andrew TuffinOur popular Free Farm Valuation Week is back! From 6th - 10th February, our farm agents will be talking to farmers and landowners across the south and west who are considering selling during 2023. Why not book your appointment now?
Symonds & Sampson is offering Free Farm Valuations for possible sales of farms, estates, smallholdings, land, and rural properties. Farmers and landowners throughout Dorset, Devon, Somerset, Wiltshire, and Hampshire are invited to take advantage of the offer.
“This is a chance to get an up-to-date market appraisal of your property,” says Andrew Tuffin, Head of the Farm Agency department. “We cover the whole spectrum, from large estates and farms to small paddocks and development opportunities. For farmers and landowners considering their options for the future, it’s a great opportunity to benefit from some free expert advice.
"The land market in the south and west has performed particularly strongly over the last 12 months with values up 5-10% year on year. This is due to a combination of an ever-growing number of buyers and a more diverse mix of buyer types competing for a supply of land that continues to remain below historic levels. Now competing with commercial farmers for land are investors, many with rollover funds from development land sales, funds, institutions, recreational buyers, residential buyers and the fastest growing group being environmental and green buyers.
"In 2022 we sold over 3,500 acres across 8 counties which included a number of sales “off market” when privacy has been an important consideration. We are registering new London, national, international, regional and local buyers every day and have little stock left on the books therefore urgently require more property".
To discuss your property, the market and the value, please contact Andrew Tuffin on 01258 472244 or one of our dedicated Farm Agents in your local office.
