Setting up for scalable success with Joint Ventures In Land

Discover how David Williams, Founder of Joint Ventures in Land (JVIL), was able to save hundreds of hours finding and acquiring on-profile sites with Nimbus®.

"Since using Nimbus, JVIL have been able to scale and send letters at a much larger scale than ever before.”


David Williams setup JVIL (Joint Ventures In Land) as a way to offer landowners a different experience to the traditional residential developer when selling their land.

JVIL have created a distinct process in which landowners' needs are prioritised and they are treated as joint venture partners, meaning that a bespoke agreement is created to benefit all
parties and is tailored to individual circumstances.


The opportunity: faster site-finding

The Problem

JVIL needed to access property data to find and secure plots of land across the South of England that are within a 90-minute commute of London, as well as to carry out due diligence
on sites, research areas, then cross-reference with nearby developments and planning decisions.

They use a strategy of building out sites, flipping with planning & creating serviced plots for self-builders. JVIL wanted to pursue their residential development goals more efficiently.

The Solution

Before using Nimbus, JVIL had tried agents and a variety of online services (Rightmove, Zoopla, and Google Earth) however, they found this to be a time-consuming and frustrating process that often, amounted to deals that did not stack up financially.

They would spend days manually searching for individual plots, and trying to find and contact the right people. Since using Nimbus, JVIL have been able to scale and send letters at a much larger scale than ever before.


The Results

Using Nimbus to speed up the process and cover more ground, JVIL have secured these 5 plots of land:


  • 2.3-acre site for 17 bungalows with a GDV of £8m.
  • 1.2-acre site for 9 executive homes with a GDV of £7m.
  • A site for 6 executive homes with a GDV of £4.5m.
  • 1.2-acre site for 9 serviced plots for self-builders with a GDV of £7m.
  • 0.3-acre site for 2 semi-detached bungalows and 1 detached house with a GDV of £1.25m.
