Scotland Estates & Farmland Market Review | Spring 2018

1 min

Firm demand for quality farms and estates, together with restricted supply, is predicted to continue in 2018

Welcome to our annual review of the Scottish Farmland and Estates Markets.

We believe it is important to analyse movements in these markets over recent years, in particular the one that we have just left behind, in order for us to advise clients and comment more generally on expected future market developments.

At Strutt & Parker, we have one of the most comprehensive databases of land, farm and estate transactions throughout the UK which enables us to provide accurate, in-depth analysis. This knowledge base together with our wealth of experience as farm and estate agents, our communication with purchasers and vendors and the consideration of external factors which affect our markets and their associated industries, give us a secure foundation for our commentaries.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of these reviews, or would like to arrange a confidential and without commitment meeting with our team about the sale or purchase of a farm or estate, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
