Agricultural land prices 2017
Before the accession to the EU, Swedish statistics on agricultural land prices and rents were not calculated or published on a regular basis. In the EU, this kind of statistics have been provided by most Member States to Eurostat each year since 1973. Since the accession to the EU in 1995, Sweden is providing Eurostat with annual statistics on agricultural land prices and rents.
Estimations of agricultural land prices are based on information, collected by Statistics Sweden, from sales of whole or parts of agricultural estates and information from the register of assessed values for real estates. It should be noted, however, that few of the sales made each year in Sweden are of agricultural land exclusively. Most sales of whole or parts of agricultural estates also include buildings and other kinds of land. The method used takes into account these circumstances in order to eliminate the value of buildings and other kinds of land by using the assessed values to determine the proportion of the agricultural land value of the total selling price.
Between 2014 and 2017 the price of arable land for Sweden has increased on average by 24 %. The price of agricultural land is 92 % higher in 2017 compared with 2007 and the average price was estimated to 83 900 SEK per hectare. The price per hectare of arable land is still highest in the plain districts in southern Götaland with an average price of 241 200 SEK per hectare. There are big variations in prices between different parts of Sweden. In the plain districts of southern Götaland, prices for arable land were on average more than 16 times higher than the prices in the upper parts of Norrland.
Compared with 2014 the average price has increased in all regions in 2017. The average price has increased most in the plain districts in southern Götaland. It increased with 56 % to 241 200 SEK per hectare.
Pasture and meadow land
The average price of pasture and meadow land in Sweden was 32 200 SEK per hectare in 2017 which is 26 % higher than it was in 2014. The price per hectare pasture and meadow land was still highest in the plain districts in southern Götaland with an average price of 88 300 SEK per hectare. The upper parts of Norrland have had the lowest average price per hectare since 1995. In 2016 the price was 4 300 SEK per hectare.
The average prices have increased in almost all regions, except in the upper parts of Norrland, between 2014 and 2017. The average price has increased most in the forest districts in central Sweden. It increased with 55 % to 22 900 SEK per hectare.
