Land Purchasing

Land_Partners_jlc039Land Partners have a close knowledge of the market and comparable information which is essential when making land buying decisions. Recent land sale values have varied by up to 30%. There are many reasons for this and a purchasing agent will be able to assist you in deciding whether a prospective land purchase represents reasonable value in the current market.

Sellers are now often choosing to dispose of their property privately. In these circumstances purchasing agents are more likely to know what property is available and can bring these opportunities to the attention of their clients.
