A landowner with a small parcel of off lying woodland approached us to discuss a potential disposal of the property to create some capital income.

A landowner with a small parcel of off lying woodland approached us to discuss a potential disposal of the property to create some capital income.

We advised on current market conditions and a strategy for the disposal. High quality marketing material was produced, and the property was launched onto online portals. 

The property was guided at a level which was achievable. However, interest grew, and competition drove negotiations between a number of parties resulting in an agreed sale price equivalent to approximately £22,500 per acre, well in excess of the guide.  

The client was extremely happy with the result. The South East Rural team maintained communications with the vendor, purchaser and solicitors throughout the sale process up until completion so that any queries, including boundary issues, could be answered quickly so as not to delay proceedings. 

Natural capital, biodiversity net gains and climate change are all current buzz words in the rural property world but more simple reasons for purchasing woodland do still exist. In short, people want to enjoy the outdoors and this market desire has increased exponentially over the recent months of lockdowns.

It is a great time to capitalise on off lying parcels of woodland/pasture or scrubland and please do get in touch with your local rural agency team for further advice regarding potential disposals.
