Confidence in the Darling Downs region market has been boosted by winter rainfalls, says the latest rural report from valuation firm Herron Todd White.

A good winter crop and strong herd numbers leading into the summer months is expected.

The positive farming conditions follow severe drought in 2018 and 2019 that saw cattle and sheep numbers drop.

HTW director Bradley Neill writes: “2020 has provided far better farming conditions and with that has come strong appetites for rural property.”

According to the report, sale prices continue to exceed pre-sale expectations.

Numerous transactions show significant price premiums over district averages, driven by private farming families and interstate cattle and sheep producers.

The recent sale of a 22,000ha holding in the Adavale Quilpie district shows a 19 per cent increase in value over a 14-month period.

A new benchmark has been set for Brigalow and Belah dryland farming country in the Darling Downs region following the sale of the broadacre farming property, Manus.

The Manus property.

The land recently changed hands for approximately $10 million, $3,960 per hectare.

The market is favouring sellers at the moment, who are presenting their properties to the market in conditions not seen for a number of years.
