    Sourcing opportunities for new builds

    Hi All,

    I was hoping to pick some of your brains with regards to sourcing development opportunities/land for new builds.

    Previously I have sourced all of my developments through RightMove, however I do not seem to be able to find that many opportunities.  I am looking to source parcels of land, either with or without planning permission to build new houses on, in and around the Bristol area.

    As mentioned, so far all of the building plots I have developed have been found via RightMove and they've been small plots on the side of existing dwellings.  However, I notice that there are often new small developments popping up all over the place, but I never see any of these opportunities for sale.

    So my questions is, how are developers finding these plots? I've recently subscribed to LandInsight to hopefully help identify further opportunities, but I'd be grateful if anyone could share any other proven methods?  i.e Leaflet dropping, following up on planning applications,  identifying large plots on Google Earth etc..

    Many thanks in advance,

    Ross

    Now that sounds right up my street!  But for the moment, I'm looking for something a little closer to home..

    Hi Ross,

    I have a plot with full PP for a detached 4 bed house in BS30. It may also have the potential for 2 smaller houses/flats. We don't currently have the capacity to build the site out, so have been discussing the possibility of selling it recently. Let me know if this sounds of interest.

    Hi,

    This could be of interest to me - could you private message me the address so I could take a look on planning/Google Earth?  

    If you could also let me know the price you have in mind that would be great.

    Thanks

    Hi Ross,

    I've tried to send you a private message. Please let me know if you have not received it.

    Apologies, I forgot to mention that this site has never been marketed.

    Hi Lewis,

    I've received your message - thanks for sending through the info.  I'm unable to reply directly as I'm still on probation.

    I'll take a look at the plot and will come back to you.

    Many thanks

    You should have a look on Hollis Morgan and maggs&Allen. They do put these plot on right move as well. Most are sold at auction in Bristol. All the best

    Hi TomTom,

    I'm unable to respond to your direct message as I'm on a probation period.  I'd be interested to have an informal conversation to see if we're able to help each other.

    Ross

    Sorry I have just picked up on this. I will send you my email through direct message and hopefully we can go from there.
