Do you have specialist listings on your books?

*  Land, of any type
*  Properties with large parcels of land
*  Properties in need of renovation
*  Buildings with development potential


Because of their specialist nature, these listings have limited audiences.  Ideally they’ll be seen by Individuals or Companies, looking for Development Opportunities, and the resources to take them on.  UKLR has been developed specifically to tap into that sector of the market.

So how can you increase your exposure and access these desired buyers?

Not many properties have 6-acres of land and stables. But, if you have one, are you simply marketing it as a ‘4-bedroomed detached house’?  Was land or stables mentioned in the title? If not, how will a buyer know it has land or stables until they click on the details?
And if they don’t make that click you may just have lost a potential sale!

Listing your property with land, simply as a ‘4-bedroomed detached house‘ risks it getting lost amongst every other 4-bedroomed property!
How can you make your specialist properties stand out amongst the millions of other properties being offered for sale?

In the general property market the typical buyer will see a ‘4-bedroomed detached house’, but may well be ‘put off’ by the land element when they click into the details.
At UKLR we promote listings from the property’s specialist elements.  The same ‘4-bedroom detached house‘ would then become a ‘6-Acre Equestrian Property with Detached House’.  From changing the focus it will draw in those looking for properties with land.   Additionally it will have been brought to the attention of those looking for ‘Equestrian’ and ‘Acres’ .

UKLR brings together different categories of specialist listings. By grouping them as ‘type’, as well as other essential search criteria, creating hubs to attract the right type of buyers for these individual listings.

Similarly . . .
You may have properties on your books requiring total renovation and modernisation. The audience for this type of property is more limited than many believe.  Ideally you want to make it ‘stand out from the crowd’, drawing in the right type of buyer, and avoid time wasters*.
At UKLR our marketing is targeted towards Architects, Investors, Tradesmen, Builders and Developers.  Prospects who may be actively looking for such opportunities for themselves or clients.

So instead of losing your ‘3-bedroom property’, amongst a million others, you can promote it as a ‘Development Opportunity / Renovation Project for 3-Bedroom Property’. You’ve not lost your original ‘general’ market, just brought it to the attention of a different, and more lucrative, sector.

By marketing your listing as ‘Land’ or a ‘Development Opportunity’ on UKLR, as well as promoting it in the general property market, you are increasing promotional aspects and creating links to specialist buyers. Do you want to give UKLR a try and take up the offer of free advertising until 31st December 2016?

*Time wasters – those who dream of doing a property up, but lack the knowledge and resources to carry out work to meet modern day standards required to satisfy mortgage requirements


What is a Private Seller?

At UKLR we define a Private Seller as anyone, or organisation, selling Land and Development Opportunities directly. This includes:

  • Private Individuals
  • Land Bankers
  • Private or public companies
  • Conglomerates
  • Authorities
  • Parishes
  • Regeneration companies
  • Estate managers
  • Charities
  • Any other type of organisations with Land or Conversion Opportunities for sale

How Much Does It Cost?

As a Private Seller you can advertise your Land and Development Opportunities directly on UKLR. Each listing costs just £10 per month, or £100 per annum plus VAT. There is no minimum or maximum spend. In addition we also offer Annual and Volume Discounts

This type of advertising is flexible, plots or properties can be interchanged as required, meaning that advertising space does not need to be taken out for every piece of land or development opportunity being sold, but can be rotated as required.

Or you may choose to opt for the Lifetime Listing, for a one-off payment of £250 plus VAT. Lifetime Listings advertise the Land or Conversion Opportunities for the full time they are on the market, without further payment. However, whilst editable on price and planning status they are not transferable.

What Type of Listings Can Be Included?

UKLR promotes any type of Land, including single and multiple plot residential land, commercial, industrial, agricultural or other.

We also promote Conversion Opportunities. At UKLR we define these as:

“A Conversion Opportunity is an existing building that has planning consent, or the potential of planning consent, for an alternative use. With a Conversion Opportunity the existing building remains, with alteration and/or extension work being undertaken to create a building for an alternate use to the original one.”

These may include:

  • Barns
  • Chapels & Churches
  • Factories
  • Guest Houses & Hotels
  • Public Buildings
  • Mills
  • Pubs
  • Residential Homes
  • Schools
  • Or other suitable buildings

What UKLR Specialise In

UKLR is a specialist website dedicated to the promotion of Land and Conversion Opportunities only.

UKLR deals with all types of Land: Residential, Commercial, Industrial or Agricultural. In addition we promote a wide range of properties with the potential for an alternate use. These could be flats, with the potential to convert into one residence, or visa versa. Local authorities are particularly keen to see derelict or unused buildings reutilised. Such buildings could include mills, chapels, factories, barns, residential homes or public buildings suitable for conversion.

What Type of Buyers Do UKLR Target?

Development Opportunities is a niche market with a specific audience. Land and Conversion Opportunities are not ‘instantly occupiable’. They either require a new build or extensive work to provide a new purpose. These types of listings won’t attract your normal audience, who generally want instant occupation on completion of legal transactions.

Development Opportunities require a certain type of buyer. Either an individual or organisation that can identify a lucrative commercial opportunity.  Or someone who can see beyond what exists and visualise their dream home. Whatever their motivation or purpose results are not instant.  It sometimes takes years from concept to completion. Finding the right opportunity, in the desired location, may eat up that time. Then there are all the necessary legal consents to gain.  Plus the time it takes to physically build or convert the property, which is months, and often years.

Seeking Specialist Buyers is something not offered by other sites.  Here at UKLR we actively seek out specialist buyers and promote the listings on our site.  We also receive requests from potential buyers, and actively help source those requirements.

What UKLR Offers

If you have any Development Opportunities  then by promoting them on UKLR you are reaching your desired audience. Potential buyers will be provided with all the necessary information, required to make a considered decision, via our bespoke gridded format. Our website provides access to all data required from one place; planning details, application numbers, dates and status, along with direct links to the relevant council planning department.

At UKLR Contact information appearing on UKLR is your own telephone or mobile number and email address. At UKLR we believe in direct contact between the buyer and seller. We do not allocate numbers like property websites.

UKLR will be actively promoting the website to the public, construction industry and architects. These promotions will again increasing your chances of finding the right buyers for you.
