what’s yours worth? we oFFer Free market aPPraisals all year round Perhaps you are thinking of selling or simply want advice and thoughts for the future; whether you are considering raising capital funds by selling off a small parcel of land or you want to plan the sale of a farm, our farms and land team are able to offer free expert advice. May through to October are the peak selling months for farms and land. Now may also be a good time to think about selling next year – with farms it’s good to plan ahead. We can also advise on all classes of development potential including class Q permitted development. Don’t worry if it’s not for this year and you just want to have some figures to think about, there is no charge for our market appraisal service. We work closely with our country property and equestrian departments so if it’s a house with just a few acres or an equestrian property we will make sure you get the right advice. We would be pleased to visit you on site or, if you prefer, we can always arrange an initial discrete meeting at one of our offices; whichever is more convenient for you.

Market Update: The Brexit issue has reduced the number of farms and farmland being marketed over the last six months or so and consequently lack of supply has resulted in demand remaining relatively strong. With the increasing need for housing across the UK we have a number of buyers registered to buy whole farms following the sale of their properties for development. Furthermore, the strength of neighbour interest remains a key factor in setting land values. Values of amenity land (Paddocks adjoining houses or for ponies etc) remain very strong with many recent sales between £15,000 and £20,000 per acre and on occasion considerably more. Farmland prices can still be £10,000 per acre or even more however, the range is more likely to be around £7000 to £8000 per acre for pasture and £8000 to £9000 per acre for arable land. The Farms and Land team are based in Frome (01373 455060) and Glastonbury (01458 834288) from where we cover sales in Wiltshire, Dorset and Somerset including Cheddar and the Mendips, Wedmore and Bridgwater areas.
