It is often said that a silver lining can be to be found in virtually any bad situation and this old adage could certainly be applied in relation to the housing cloud. As has been commented on rather ad nauseam, there is a massive need for housing in all areas and from this predicament you may be able to hear the rather pleasant sound of an opportunity knocking!
The reason for this sound is because you could well be sitting on quite a lucrative deal, as Rolfe East is very keen to hear from anyone who has land that could potentially be worth redeveloping and put to use for purpose-built flats or houses.
This land may take many forms: side or rear gardens, garage space, large plots or any biggish and suitable vacant area with possible development prospects. It is interesting – contrary to popular belief and well worth noting – that if you do build on your property or have new-build properties across the road then it actually increases the value of yours not reduces. It’s true!
Additionally, there are other prime possibilities, for example the recent North Common Road development, where large houses have been turned into several flats and profits maximised rather than simply selling up.
Our New Homes team provides a first-class service in our Land and Development area of expertise, as they did with a whole variety of projects over 2015 where they helped many “ordinary people” – I realise how that sounds but it really is open to all! – to capitalize on the earnings from their property.
So, should you have a suitable size property or a piece of land that you think could be worth developing but are not sure what to do or where to start, we offer expert planning consultants and chartered surveyors and will fully advise regarding development potential and planning matters for any piece or plot of land.
Hear that? That sound is us knocking, so just open the door!
