Property Development Sourcing

If you’re a property developer you’ll know how important it is to make the right choices at just the right time when buying Australian real estate. Propertybuyer have been assisting property developers with these tough decisions for over a decade and are able to source the right development sites in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, and through our buyers agent network in Perth, Adelaide, Canberra,Hobart and Darwin.

Finding potential development sites that deliver a reasonable profit and meet minimum rates of return is difficult in today’s market, but with our extensive insider’s knowledge of Australian property we assist experienced developers and real estate investors in finding and negotiating the purchase of developments which will offer the best return on investment.

Most of the commercial and residential development sites we’ve found in the past have not been advertised to the general public;.  These off-market opportunities are sourced through our extensive agent and developer network which helps to give our clients the winning edge.

As a property developer in Australia it is important to get good quality, independent advice before committing to a purchase. You must know your feasibility backwards before you start, otherwise it is a recipe for financial trouble. Our role in the development process is to help you avoid investing in a property which won’t offer returns and to find you options which will suit your property development strategy. We can also provide referrals to other key service providers including builders, engineering consultants, quantity surveyors, valuers, town planners, land economic consultants and project managers.


Types of development sites we have sourced for clients in the past include:

  • Large land subdivisions
  • Multi-Unit residential sites
  • Student accommodation
  • Hotels/ motels
  • Commercial & residential property development sites
  • Townhouse development sites
  • Mixed use development sites
  • Prestige waterfront development sites
  • Single dwelling home development sites
  • Subdivisions
  • Boutique duplex development sites

We cater for all budgets from small boutique developers, medium scale builders to large publicly listed developments and companies/ fund managers.  We maintain strict confidentiality on all client transactions.

If you are a developer and you are looking for a site, contact our office to arrange a consultation to discuss your specific requirements. Call today on 1300 655 615.


development-1“We’re a boutique residential developer and have completed several projects with Rich and his team who provided expert and professional input at several stages through the process. Typically, we met with Rich and identify geographical markets which we want to target and then narrow down the brief of specifically what criteria a potential development opportunity has to fulfill to fit within our business model. As a result of the scoping process, Rich then puts forward multiple prospects for us to consider – in the several cases where Property Buyer has successfully sourced development sites for us, that process has taken significantly less time than would be the case if we had undertaken the role ourselves. The consequent savings of time and internal resource for us has been significant.

We regularly consult with Property Buyer throughout the design process and discuss likely rental returns and expected end investment values of all of our projects. This better ensures that we are positioning our product to as best as possible, match the investment criteria of Property Buyer’s data base of investors – Rich and the team then have a detailed knowledge of our product which allows them to secure off-the-plan and on-completion sales for us. We’ve always found Property Buyer to be a professional and valuable partner in our projects and are looking forward to working with them on future projects.”
