Property assessment
The brokers of Metsä will perform an assessment for forest properties to be sold together with forest planners. The forest assessment is made using a sum and value method, whereby the combined value of the trees, sapling stands and the ground is calculated and adjusted accounting for the costs. The assessed property can also hold buildings, building plots or shares to joint-owned areas, and the broker can perform an assessment for these as well. You can learn more about the price of the assessment from our broker.

Property sales
Our brokers act according to the commissioning agreement. The work is always guided by good brokerage practices, sector legislation and the instructions of the Metsä chain. The broker will interview the seller and investigate the property through the official documents. This is followed by an appropriate sales brochure, responding to sellers’ questions, showing the property and taking offers. Then, the matter will go up to the seller to decide, and the broker will prepare the deed of sale and any other required documents and agree on the specifics for the sales transaction.
