The recent sale of more than 380,000 acres in North Florida for $582 million, one of the largest land deals in Florida history, underscores the need for the real estate industry to be thoroughly on top of land values. To help buyers and sellers understand this market, Third Wing client Coldwell Banker Commercial Saunders Real Estate (CBCSRE) will conduct its proprietary “Lay of the Land Florida Land Conference” on April 4 at the Streamsong Resort in Polk County.
Since 2010, CBCSRE has conducted a comprehensive, verified study of property sales in Florida that is presented at the conference. “We have invested in the development of methodology to track and verify significant land sales in Florida, including grove, timberland and ranch acreage,” said Dean Saunders, ALC, CCIM, owner/real estate broker of CBCSRE. “This is the information buyers, sellers and developers need to make the right deals.”
“The ‘Lay of the Land Market Report’ is outstanding,” said Robert Thomas, Chair of the Florida Land Council. “It provides concise and accurate information on a broad spectrum of land use and values and is an important and very valuable resource for Florida landowners.”
