rural property index

Summer 2018

The latest edition of Rural Property Index measures the investment performance of over £1bn of rural property managed by Bidwells.

The research, which tracks the investment performance of rural property assets, revealed our sample of traditional 'let' rural property continued to perform very strongly with a much greater proportion of the returns in this sector having been derived from portfolio activity. 

After a decade of persistent yield compression, let rural property yields remained static in 2017. Whilst rental values softened further in 2017 in an environment of significant Brexit-related uncertainty.

Wider global trends, combined with Brexit, will drive changing farming practices and innovation in the sector, which in the longer-term are likely to impact on the viability of some enterprises.
