To help buyers and sellers understand this market, 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 a 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. 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,” said Robert Thomas, Chair of the Florida Land Council.
