Land supply remains at a record low, but growing demand sees land values edge higher
The average price of pasture land in the South East of England increased by 5% last year. The amount of land coming onto the market remains at an all-time low. This record low level of supply continues to underpin the growing demand for land, a trend which is expected to continue in 2021.
Lifestyle and amenity land has been particularly sought after as Covid-19 increased the desire for more green space.
Demand from private investors and lifestyle buyers has grown and together they have accounted for 40% of land purchases in the last three years. There has also been an increased number of overseas buyers as the pound remains relatively weak.
With bank interest rates remaining low, land continues to be seen as a safe, long-term investment – particularly during times of economic uncertainty.
