The price of agricultural land

What is the price of agricultural land? Almost every owner of agricultural land has thought about its value at least once. Kalme provides each client with a free consultation on the price of agricultural land. We take into account actual transactions that have taken place near the client’s property and the characteristics of the property.

What affects the price of agricultural land?

  • Location. In Zemgale, the prices of agricultural land are at least 3x higher than in Latgale.
  • Property area. The larger the property, the higher the price per hectare.
  • Land quality assessment. The more points, the higher the price.
  • Access road. It’s important!
  • Reclamation. A reclaimed property costs significantly more than an unreclaimed one.
  • Farmer density. The more farmers in the vicinity, the greater the competition for property.
  • Property configuration. The more rectangular the property, the cheaper it is for the farmer to manage it.
  • Encumbrances. Electricity poles, proximity to the railway, nature reserves, etc.

The small number of transactions and high demand from potential buyers will cause the prices of agricultural land in Zemgale to keep increasing in 2023. However, the increase in the price per hectare will not be as fast as before because it has already reached a high level.

Why are CSB transaction prices so low?

It is important to note that these data are based on the average prices of agricultural land transactions. In Latvia, there are many overgrown, unused agricultural lands with sales prices of ~1000EUR/ha. At the same time, this region also has high-quality arable land, the value of which will be many times higher.

In our opinion, in most cases the landowner does not know the market price of agricultural land, as a result of which the property is sold to the first buyer at a significantly reduced price. Do not sell your property to the first buyer!
