Utility Companies Look to Sell Land Due to Recovering Housing and Commercial Real Estate Markets

no picture

Stark & Stark Shareholder Gary S. Forshner, member of the firm’s Real Estate, Zoning & Land Use group, was quoted in the article “Utilities Cash in On Rising Land Prices,” which was published in Law360 on April 24, 2014.

Over the past few years, land prices have risen as the housing and commercial real estate markets have started to recover from the recession. This price increase has influenced a surge in land sales, including utility lands. Mr. Forshner said, “Anytime prices go up, everyone is going to be more likely to sell… utilities are no exception.”

The article discusses the considerations a utility company must make before deciding to sell their land. Mr. Forshner said, “Before even getting to the point of a sale, many utilities need permission from regulators since not all of them own their land outright.”
