Buying Land for Development

Land banks, like real banks, are experiencing something of a hiatus. Some developers are ‘unloading’ their development land; others are looking to pick up bargains. Some landowners have to realise their land assets despite the downturn. A rising market can hide mistakes; the current market won’t. The need to get things right, first time, has never been greater.
