We understand that dairy farming is not just a job, it’s a way of life, and the decision to sell your property is a big one.

With such a complex asset, it’s crucial that you take the time to get your farm and business sorted to ensure it’s presented in the best light. A well-presented farm is very attractive to the market, so spending some time on the small details will make a big difference and yield results.

While you don’t need to spend a lot of money to prepare your farm, you do need to ensure that you’ve got the basics covered.

A farm that looks like it needs a lot of work may put buyers off and purchasers who are looking for a “do-up” will want this reflected in the price. Ensuring that your property is presented at its best will help to maximise the value.

Dairy farming is a seasonal business, so it's worth thinking about when the best time to sell is, both practically and aesthetically. We suggest not only considering when your farm will look its best, but what market conditions will be most favourable, and when you will be able to dedicate some time to the process.

Deciding when to sell will also determine your lead time and how much you will be able to do in preparation. It’s a good idea to get someone with fresh eyes – your Colliers agent will be able to help with this - to objectively review your property and pick up things you may miss.

Remember that you only get once chance to make a first impression, so make it count!

We’ve put together a checklist to help you prepare your dairy farm for market.
