Oleksandr Paraschiy, Head of Research at Concorde Capital, stated in a comment to UBR that the price of land depends on the following factors:
- fertility, potential productivity;
- whether it is rented and for how many years.
At the same time, Oleksandr Korobko, business development partner of the Uvekon company, noted that the supply of agricultural land could increase one and a half to two times after the start of the business season.
He noted that under favorable economic conditions and a low impact of the pandemic, the activity on the market could increase by at least 20-25%. In particular, the process of pricing will improve in autumn because with an increase in supply the price of land may decrease.
