Finding a plot

Where do you start? If you’re buying locally then obviously you need to speak to all of the estate agents in the area. Make it known you’re interested in a plot and spread the word.

Keep your eyes peeled – drive around the places where you’d like to live and if you see some land that you think has potential be brave and speak to the owners about it. They might not know their land has potential – but please don’t be under the illusion that they won’t appreciate the value if it has! We’ve heard it all before from people trying to buy a parcel of land to put their pony on to saying they intend to grow their own vegetables. It doesn’t wash!

If you’re struggling to find land locally and not having any joy with local estate agents then we highly recommend you register your interest with a specialise plot-finding company – visit the ‘Our Partners’ section to find out more.
