Big in Land.

About

B&S Land was formed in 1999 to specialize solely in the sale of greenfield development land.

Frank Nagle, Andrew Egan and Callum Williamson make up the team at B&S Land, and between them have a second-to-none understanding of land, particularly the workings of Urban Growth Zoning (UGZ), Precinct Structure Plans (PSPs), and the particular and peculiar vagaries attached to same.

“We are able to accurately assess potential lot yield, development costings, planning timelines and future revenues to provide landowners with a very accurate value estimate, wherever their land maybe located”.

Our extensive national and international buyer-base, recent sales knowledge, research sponsorship and active involvement with industry groups such as UDIA (Urban Development Institute) ensures that we are always up to date with government planning policies, industry practices and more importantly, recent land sale values and who is buying.

Having now achieved some $8.23 Billion in greenfield land sales, the business has grown into Perth WA, NSW, Queensland and has recently completed its 5th national land transaction with the sale of Bingara Gorge NSW on behalf of Lend Lease at $226m.

“We don’t need to source new buyers – we have them in our data base as a result of our spread of sales campaigns throughout Australia.”

“The beauty of land is that we can use our skills and understanding of the planning and infrastructure process’s, to assess accurately yield outcomes, cost implications and thus profit margins to more correctly assess and elevate the lands value.”
