“Variety is the Spice of Life”

May 18, 2017

David James & Partners’ Second Collective Land & Property Auction of 2017 attracted a wide range of rural property investors, from boat clubs to potential new fruit farmers and pension funds.  The traditional farmer bidders were also present and did secure one lot from the six lots on offer.  The average price per acre was £11,500.

DJ&P Auctioneer, Richard Nancekivell, was pleased with the level of interest and variety of buyers seeking rural property with potential to improve and enhance value.

“In the current climate land represents a safe, secure and potentially wise investment.”

Next Collective Land & Property Auction Tuesday, 25th July 2017 – entries to hand include:
