Time to sell with PFK Land Agency?
As the nights draw in, and autumn is heading our way fast, you don't immediately think of selling property, but if this is something you are thinking about, then now is the time to start planning.
The rural property market is very buoyant at present, with demand being shown from a multitude of different property buyers, so if you are thinking about a disposal, then now is the time to act.
The old adage, you can only sell something once is never truer than with the sale of a farm or agricultural land, therefore forward planning and preparation are vital.
The following are tips which we at PFK Land Agency suggest are matters which need looking at in preparation for any sale:
• First Impressions
First impressions count, and therefore a bit of time spent tidying up, giving things a lick of paint and generally making things look spick and span is worth the effort to catch the eye of potential purchasers.
• Be clear
Going to the market place with a clear description of what is to sell is vital. Therefore, checking boundary responsibilities, who owns sporting and mineral rights, exact details of what common rights are owned, together with checking title plans against the land on the ground are all vital prior to going to the market.
• Subsidies and Schemes
If the farm is within any form of environmental and / or woodland scheme, ensure that you are fully aware of the implications of selling the property on the scheme and ensure that any requirement for the scheme to carry on is taken account of in the sales process.
You will need a solicitor to deal with the legal side of a sale, therefore appointing a solicitor who has full knowledge of your property and your aspirations is important. Picking the right individual and involving them from the outset is important to ensure that all title matters are addressed, such as third-party rights over your property etc. They will also ensure that things move swiftly towards completion of the transaction once an offer has been accepted.
• Employing the right agent
You will have to work extremely closely with your agent, and therefore picking the right one, who has in depth knowledge of both the market place and also the area is very important.
