Developers, land bankers looked in

Commercial and residential builders, as well as land bankers looked in, as well as investors, and despite the short campaign, the agents said.

“Agricultural tenanted investments have become highly sought after amid a sustained period fo strong growing conditions and heightened commodity prices,” Mr Glassford added.

“Combined with the property’s secure, long-term lease…and its strong road connections, meant we had a rush of investors show strong interest,” according to the executive.

An expressions of interest campaign was scheduled to close in 10 days.
