Autumn land and farms market offers plenty of opportunities

More farmland properties have joined the market this autumn, as vendors catch up from Covid-19 complications and take advantage of the increased buyer demand.

Thomas Armstrong, H&H Land & Estates director, said the company had concluded many land and farms sales in the past few weeks, as well as having several private sales on the go.

“These sales have achieved good prices and demonstrated that there is a very keen interest from both local and national purchasers,” Mr Armstrong said.

“Some may think it is late in the season to launch properties but, based on the current demand, I know they will be sought after and I believe going forward there is no reason for vendors to wait until the traditional time of spring.”

Here is a selection of what’s currently on offer in the UK land and property market.
