About Us

Single Point Of Contact Supporting You Along The Way

Our dedicated New Homes team of experts provide a single point of contact.  We believe this to be critical for our developer clients. We truly understand the needs of developers in relation to detailed and regular communication and progress reporting. We have a robust and efficient reporting structure, so that you know exactly what we are doing for you and when. 

We keep a close eye on what's happening locally in order to keep you informed.

Bringing Buyers To You:  The weight of our 18 sales offices is behind the marketing of all of our developments. Widely recognised as two of Surrey's leading estate agents, Curchods and Burns & Webber find buyers for our clients by marketing across our entire network.  New Developments have instant exposure to a database of over 8,000 buyers registered with us.  We are positioned in the busiest streets of the towns and villages where we operate and we hold a vast knowledge of Surrey.

Show Home Personnel:  We employ experienced Show Home Staff, expertly trained to communicate and negotiate with skill, precision and dedication.  They make our marketing initiatives come alive and convert them into sales.

 

Marketing & Brochure Design

With an annual marketing spend of nearly £1m, our in-house marketing division helps create a strong profile and excellent exposure for the properties we market for you.  This powerful, targeted marketing ensures your properties are presented in the very best light, to a vast audience and attracts the right buyers. 

We maintain a strong presence in main local property papers and magazines as well as excellent online exposure through all the major property portals as well as curchods.com and burnsandwebber.com

In-house we manage the design and production of printed leaflets, advertisements and window displays, as well as their electronic counterparts.  We also offer a brochure design service by separate negotiation for the creation of top quality brochures.

 

Land Aquisition & Site Valuation

We are constantly on the search for potential development opportunities, many of which come via our 17 residential sales offices.  We will listen to your needs and make sure we bring relevant opportunities to your attention.  Industry contacts, examination of planning registers and pro-active canvassing of landowners, also produce a valuable source of development opportunities to offer you.  

We are also able to assess and advise you on the development potential and value of land/buildings at a suitably early stage using Promap, sometimes even before a physical inspection.

 

Understanding The Plannning Process

Early preparation and detailed research are key parts to the success of our Land & New Homes Service.  We draw on many years of experience in dealing with planning authorities and other legislative bodies which allows us to offer sound, relevant advice. We work closely with partner companies to ensure that each stage of the planning process is carefully managed.

 

Land Owners

Our expertise is also offered to land owners who have assets on which there is possible planning opportunity. It is in this area that our 17 sales offices come into their own with introductions. As a result, we are regularly asked to progress the planning applications or sale subject to planning campaigns for these owners.  This allows us to present many opportunities to our developer clients.

 

Professional Advisors

Our services extend to providing detailed help on development potential, planning, land and property values to professional advisers such as architects, solicitors, accountants and other professionals who, from time to time, are engaged with clients who need such advice. Architects are often a first point of contact for clients thinking of building projects. Solicitors and accountants are regularly engaged in probate matters, divorce, family trusts, wills etc, which often encompass property or land assets. Our specialist expertise and knowledge often make it easier for such professionals. 

 

Investor Contacts

We work closely with many regular investors, who favour brand new homes as there is no work to be done to maintain them or bring them up to scratch for rental. We offer an end to end full lettings service for our investor clients and are able to give you a clear picture of what the rental yeild would be on your devopment.  Browse our properties to rent in Surrey.

 

Our Reputation & Success

We have an envious client list which includes most of the area's key developers who trust us and regularly involve us in the planning, marketing and selling of their developments.  However, we are never complacent and that is why it has to be excellent every time.

Will a loft conversion add value to my property?

We are frequently asked if adding a loft conversion to a property will increase value. The simple answer to that question is yes, adding extra floor space will increase the value.

However, before you rush off to clear the attic and call the builders, there are a number of factors to take into consideration:

  • Will the cost of the work be proportionate to the increase in value? Will the accommodation be balanced?
  • Do the number of bedrooms outweigh usable reception space?
  • Will it make the house too large for its plot or location?
  • Will the addition of the staircase involve losing or diminishing the size of an existing room?
  • Will the extra... read more
