If you are looking to dispose of your development land, partnering with an expert is crucial to achieving the best price, and in addition ensuring the sale is to the most competent buyer, in the quickest time frame possible. Preston Baker can advise on all the options and procedures and work with you from start to finish.
- Gaining Planning
If you are about to submit planning, Preston Baker can help ensure you are maximising the potential return. We work with landowners from the ground up, literally. We partner with you and your design team before planning is submitted to ensure any suggested scheme is maximising the gross development value of the plot, which has a knock-on effect on your residual land value.
- Proactive Land Agency
When it comes to sell, we are experts in effective, proactive land agency. This starts with a wealth of contacts, locally, regionally and nationally. Depending on the site’s characteristics, your position and the status of the site, we may have the perfect buyer already on our books, the fact the site never goes to market is a strong incentive for a developer to buy the site quickly, at a good price to ensure they can secure it fast.
- Knowledgeable Approach
If we take a site to the open market, we know our approach is second to none. Our team of experts compile data on every possible aspect of a site - market analysis, title covenants and easements, use classes, local and national policy etc. This means for you that any buyer can effectively appraise a site in as short a time as possible, and they know they are dealing with professionals.
Our tried and tested method generates significant interest to achieve the best price possible from the best buyer possible. Knowing the site intimately means that we can effectively negotiate on your behalf to achieve the best price.
