Stagfield Group is committed to the development of residential and commercial property projects that benefit not only landowners, but those communities and the local environment that will be affected along the way.
For us, land assessment is not solely about recognising the financial value of a piece of land. Rather, we seek to uncover the true potential based on the land’s location and characteristics, considering factors such as how the local community will benefit and the positive impact the local environment can have through the development, too.
Each land assessment is bespoke to the land in question, and to your needs and aspirations as the landowner. A typical land assessment will incorporate the following:
Initial land valuation
An initial valuation will take into account the typical sale prices per acre in your area. Any recent developments in your location will have an effect on the price of your own land, as will the return on previous investments made nearby - for example, if a housing development has shown a strong return in recent years, your land may become more desirable as a result.
The initial valuation of your land will also look at the potential if the land was sold straight out or developed prior to sale. This enables us to provide you a range of options and to advise you on the best route to take to achieve your aspirations.
Local community impact
Your local community will inevitably be affected by any redevelopment that takes place on your land. If yours is farmland with very little nearby residential or commercial traffic, the impact will be far less than somewhere which is close to existing dwellings or businesses.
Here at Stagfield Group, we believe that land development done well should positively affect the local area, bringing regeneration, jobs and, ultimately, beautiful places for people to live and work. By considering the local community in the very early stages of a land project, we facilitate positive outcomes for all stakeholders.
As part of every land assessment, we will consider the environmental implications of any development and the best way to both mitigate against risk and capitalise on improvement opportunities. This might include recommendations as to the green space to be considered in any residential layout, or the inclusion of energy generation from aspects such as local water systems or wind power into a commercial project.
Commercial viability and forecasting
Of course, any development project should deliver a strong return for its stakeholders and for that reason, we ensure that the commercial viability and potential ROI is considered very early on.
We’ll work closely with you and all stakeholders to understand the financial and commercial aspirations of the project and to identify the most profitable way forward. With over 70 years combined experience in the financial management of land development projects, our team of experts will help you realise the maximum gains on your investment.
