Could you be sitting on a small fortune?

September 15, 2016Categories: SellingTags: garden

It seems you can’t turn on the TV or go on line, nowadays, without being reminded of the constant shortage of housing within the UK. Due, mainly, to the recent property price boom and household incomes remaining dormant, for yet another year. 

According to Government statements, ‘estimates put the need for additional housing in England at, between, 232,000 to 300,000 new units per year, a level not reached since the late 1970s and two to three times the current supply’.

With the demand for new homes at an all-time high, we are seeing more and more interest from homeowners looking to sell plots of land. Many homeowners are unaware that they could be sitting on a small fortune in garden plots, with untouched development potential.

Selling part, or all, of a garden or small plot to a property developer is a growing trend. Neighbours, regularly, team up with other neighbours to sell larger plots, in order to realise the bigger picture. There are a multitude of reasons why homeowners would consider selling part of their garden; maybe the garden has become too large to maintain, to generate funds so you can enjoy retirement or simply because you want to release some extra money to pay off the mortgage.

Throughout the years of working with homeowners, exploring the possibility of selling some or all of their land, the overriding concern always comes back to the same issue…planning. Planning is very subjective, and even if your garden is in the middle of a row of gardens, or locked behind other properties, we may be able to offer you the key to unlock the potential, on a broader planning scheme. 

Our dedicated land team are on hand to help you with all planning matters and, we understand that selling land is not always an easy process, because the majority of high street estate agents do not consistently deal with buying and selling of land. 

At Your Move we use a dedicated Land & New Homes team whose primary focus is to assist in all land enquiries; big or small. We can offer you professional and impartial advice throughout the sale of your land, and more importantly we have an extensive list of developers who we work with, meaning the sale of your land will reach an audience, already in the market to buy.
