This could be about to change however, as more and more property owners and investors are recognising the advantages of making a quick sale using this highly effective sales platform.

This is because without a carefully constructed budget or detailed development appraisal in place, the risks associated with a development opportunity should be considered to be unmanaged and consequently the chances of achieving a successful project outcome are significantly reduced.
