Independent Chartered Surveying giving impartial expert advice on all aspects and stages of the residential development process.
Acting for National Housebuilders, Private Developers, Housing Associations, individual Landowners and Investors, we provide independent sales and marketing advice as well as ‘Red Book’ valuations giving clear, informed, unbiased and accurate advice to all our clients. Our opinions are widely respected and can be totally relied upon, providing a confidential service which clients have told us can be hard to obtain.
Accurate assessment of market demand, trends and values of a residential development is essential for finding the right product so that both sales potential and profitability are maximised. We can manage existing in-house sales departments or provide external teams for developers. Our extensive experience in agency enables us to motivate, manage and provide best value whilst always ensuring that our clients’ needs are met and that the developers’ interest is maintained.
In addition, we locate, work up and appraise residential sites for clients, providing exceptional off-market opportunities.
Key areas of expertise:
- Formal ‘Red Book’ valuations
- Existing use valuations
- Site and scheme appraisals
- Demographic, demand, target market and competitor analysis reports
- Layout, specification and finish recommendations
- Branding, marketing, advertising planning and project management
- Site staff recruitment, management and secret shopping
- Residential investment acquisition and disposal
- Site acquisition and disposal
We offer independent support and advice to the residential new homes, development and affordable sectors. Yes, there are a variety of other agencies in the market, but we believe that our specialist practice gives us a unique advantage. As our clients often tell us, other agencies are either so large that internal conflicts of interest occur unchecked or they have an in-house estate agency and therefore an obvious bias towards getting a sale instruction. In both cases, it means that the advice offered is not always as impartial as it could be.
We work with only a handful of clients at a time and so we are totally committed to your needs and requirements. Our discretion and specialised knowledge, along with the strong relationships we have built within the market, means that we can access information and data that others might be unable to secure.
Our team has many years of experience in both new homes and traditional residential estate agency at large national firms. We therefore realise the pressure which may exist in some of those larger agencies to ease the workload of the estate agent without always working in the best interest of the client. By acting solely for clients we are able to get straight to the point, directing the selling agents to deal with the instructions in a proactive and honest manner.
We are happy to work on an ongoing retained basis alongside your in-house team or take on individual projects. Either way, we are able to collaborate with your people to compliment their skills and get the best from everyone involved.
We have specialist expertise and market knowledge of East Anglia and London but we are happy to work with you on projects throughout the UK.
