Selling Development Land Quickly for Cash

The UK is a small island where land is finite and a rare commodity. Following the recent influx of net migration into the country, there continues to be an increased demand for housing in the UK with a limited supply. This has meant land values have increased in value over the last few decades, however whilst residential and commercial development land has increased in value over the last few decades, the price per acre has taken a drop in value following the financial meltdown seen in 2007.

Selling residential development land quickly is no easy task as usually we are talking about a large lot size with restrictive buyers or developers who would be interested. Obtaining finance through high street lenders is notably difficult following the recession and if you are an investor or even property developer, you will need to have 50% of the deposit to acquire development fast.

These days there are very few developers or investors who would stump up the 5o% deposit to buy residential development land (or commercial development land) fast, this has subsequently meant there has been a limited about of land trading hands between owners and developers and this has subsequently lead to a reduced number of properties been developed in the UK, which has created a massive housing shortage in the UK. Selling development land quickly is therefore difficult to achieve and has resulted in few houses been built which has lead to unprecedented house price increases, purely down to low supply and high demand for properties.

Read / watch this documentary on the BBC about housing shortages in the UK, the National Housing Federation estimated that 974,000 homes were needed between 2011 and 2014, the figures however showed that only 457,490 were built, not even half of the allocation which was needed!

Selling Residential and Commercial Land Fast –  What is the Solution?

We have established there is a growing shortage of properties for the UK public, the issue however is there are restrictions in place by high street / mortgage lenders which means there is a liquidity issue in the market.
