Our Land and New Homes department provides a bespoke consultancy service to local developers. Frost’s set up the land department in 2000 in response to a rising level of new homes sales and the desire from developers to have a dedicated point of contact. Since then we have had the privilege of working with some of the area’s most innovative developers and advised and sold a number of local landmark developments.
If you would like to talk to an established, market leading agency about your future development please feel free to get in touch.

Land Sale and Acquisition
Frost's are strong in the identification of potential sites especially, due to stringent Green belt rules, the development of Brownfield sites and office to residential opportunities where we have lots of experience. If you are considering buying or selling a potential development we are happy to provide advice and discuss the potential mix and specifications for your scheme.
One of Frost's strengths is understanding the demand for local new homes, exactly what buyers are looking for and how best to communicate with the target market. We use professional designers and can produce and deliver quality marketing to budget and on schedule, plus help with show homes and launch events. Our local marketing intelligence and experience is a real asset too enabling developers to maximise re-sales by consulting with us on current pricing, competition, price per square foot analysis, possible future trends and expectations.
We would expect to provide detailed updates and reports to help clients on a weekly basis and in most cases are happy to attend meetings at clients offices to ensure a quality service is maintained.
We have an in-house financial services department, who are able to verify every offer and ensure that we only pass to clients, buyers who are in a first class financial position. The mortgage market can be challenging but where the buyer chooses to use Embrace Mortgage Consultants we will ensure that the mortgage application is chased through to facilitate a speedy exchange of contracts.
In addition to our extensive in house resources we are able to call on the expertise and marketing power of other companies within our group, particularly in situations where clients feel this will add value to the promotion of the development.
