Developing land for custom build



No matter the size of land in your ownership, Custom Build Homes makes it simple and stress-free to enable it for custom build development. Our expert team helps you maximise the value of your land by selling serviced plots or customisable homes direct to purchasers. You’re in full control of the process, the prices and retain ownership of the land until it’s time to sell.

We shape new developments that align with your vision and responds to known demand.


2. Enabling services

We provide all professional services required to achieve planning consent, prepare the site and engage effectively with purchasers.


3. Sales

We ensure purchasers are supported through the design, planning, mortgage and legal processes required to achieve swift successful sales.


4. Construction

We know it is a priority to trust the people you choose to help develop your land to maximise its financial and social value. Custom Build Homes works with you to shape a development proposition which aligns with your personal or corporate vision and values. As part of the BuildStore Group you will also have access to industry leading finance, mortgage and insurance products and protections which act to further support and ease the delivery of new homes.
