Identifying viable development opportunities requires in-depth understanding of the construction business and an insider’s knowledge of the current property market. Silver is able to offer both. 

The Silver Difference

The experience, insight and contacts that our team has acquired over many years ensures that we are regularly able to offer our clients potentially profitable additions to their portfolios.

Working closely with a broad network of partners, we are often made aware of available development sites which have yet to come to market. We then use our in-house expertise to carry out an initial valuation as well as the preliminary research for due diligence, and prepare a business land appraisal to ensure that the profitability of any opportunity has been carefully assessed before we present it to the client.

Areas of Expertise

  • Helping to develop the client's brief
  • Focused geographical searches
  • Initial feasibility studies
  • Preliminary due diligence
