The land market in 2012 was again characterised by low supply and rising prices. The market proved resilient despite the adverse effects on farm profitability caused by extreme weather. There was very little evidence of any distressed sales. Fisher German research suggests that the average price of all land in the UK rose by about 9% in 2012.

Demand in 2013 is likely to be lead once again by farmer buyers with the best quality land fetching exceptional prices. We believe there will be a modest increase in land supply of 10-15%. The 2014/15 CAP reforms may restrict supply as some landowners ‘tread water’, awaiting to assess the future support for agriculture. Tightening of IHT reliefs will also hamper increased land supply going forward. We predict average land prices will rise by 4 to 5% in 2013 with prime land likely to achieve a future price growth approaching 10%.
