Weekly property review: Planning for future success - Sheep Central

www.sheepcentral.com [cached]

Mike Stephens is the founding director of Meridian Agriculture, a major agribusiness consultancy group with a client base in southern Australia.
He said there are very few farmers who have a 'live' succession plan. Mr Stephens said the lack of an identified successor can sometimes force properties onto the market. "The lack of a transparent succession plan is an important factor in family members deciding whether or not to come home," he said. He said if family members had unrealistic expectations about the family farm and started squabbling, then 'fire-sales' could result. "For example, if someone thought they were going to take over the farm, but other family members expected to divide the assets equally. Fractured relationships, a pie that's too small and someone who tries to hang-on too long can also push a property onto the market sooner than anticipated," he said. Mr Stephens said forced sales or fire-sales could be avoided by better planning. "The expectation is the older generation will have the funds to retire and not be totally dependent on the farm; will hand over a viable business to a family member and will deal with the non-farming members so they are happy with their share now and in the future," he said. "Realistically, this occurs in a very small number of cases, perhaps 15 percent (less than 8000) of Australia's 53,000 farms." Impact on property prices Mr Stephens said in the current market, property prices weren't being affected by forced or fire sales.
