Whilst our main focus is acquiring properties for homeowners we also source properties for developers. Below is a list of a few of the development opportunities we currently have access to. Our CEO Fraser Slater is a former real estate analyst and can produce detailed project appraisals, cash flows, IRR and RoE forecasts for each asset. By modelling each asset we can provide an objective opinion, showing you at what price we think each opportunity makes sense. After all, buying well is fundamental to successful property development!
