Mather Jamie has sites primed for local developers as market heats up

The continuing economic recovery, coupled with a freeing up of sources of funding, has seen a strengthening in this section of the property market in particular, and companies looking to invest should approach Mather Jamie for their local knowledge and contacts.

Gary Kirk of Mather Jamie comments: “This is a great time for smaller, local residential developers to purchase their next ideal site, as banks are willing to lend more, and there is some high quality stock available, with further sites regularly coming through the pipeline.”

Village locations in Leicestershire are proving very popular among investors, particularly those close to major transport routes to Leicester, Derby and Nottingham, with strong interest in Mather Jamie’s sites at Long Whatton, Quorn and Breedon on the Hill.

Gary continued, “Our knowledge of the Leicestershire market is second to none, and we have well-established contacts with a range of supporting professionals, including planning and technical consultants and property lawyers, so we are ideally placed to turn a site into a successful sale.”

Mather Jamie have new sites coming forward at great locations such as Appleby Magna, Osgathorpe and Kegworth and developers are encouraged to take advantage of the company’s holistic approach, which includes a comprehensive information pack available to download from their website for each site they bring to the market.

Gary concluded: “We are keenly aware of changes in planning policy which may affect a development, and we put a lot of preparation into all our sites, with all legal aspects covered before going to market to ensure there are no nasty surprises, as this enables developers to get on with building as soon as possible and maintain quick turnover of capital.”
