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 has been able to scale and send letters at a much larger scale than ever before.”

Background

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 has created a distinct process in which landowners' needs are prioritised and are treated as joint venture partners. This means creating a bespoke agreement that is tailored to individual circumstances for the benefit off all parties.

Join Ventures in Land (JVIL) had previously tried agents and several online services, such as Rightmove, Zoopla, and Google Earth. However, it found this not only took up a lot of time, it also often amounted to deals that, financially, did not stack up.

Thanks to Nimbus, JVIL was able to speed up the process significantly and cover more ground, helping them to secure many more viable plots. JVIL founder, David Williams, said, "since using Nimbus, JVIL has been able to send letters at a much larger scale than ever before. Nimbus was the perfect tool to bring all of the data [we needed] into one place.”

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, within a 90-minute commute of London. It also needed to carry out due diligence
on sites, then cross-reference with nearby developments and planning decisions.

It uses a strategy of building out sites, flipping with planning, and  creating serviced plots for self-builders. JVIL wanted to pursue its residential development goals more efficiently.

The results

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

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