Nimbus launches market-first land comporables feature to proptech marketplace

With the new land comparables feature, Nimbus clients can compare numerous metrics, such as sales prices, price per unit, and price per acre. This data – which is notoriously hard for developers to find – means it is now easy to gain an accurate understanding of land value. The feature, accessible from the Nimbus location analysis section, is fed by reliable planning and ownership data sourced directly from councils and HM Land Registry.

Aimed at helping property investors and developers streamline their land acquisition processes, leading property intelligence platform provider Nimbus® has launched a unique-to-market feature for comparing land values.

Paul Davis, co-founder of Nimbus, said, “Residual value calculations are highly sensitive to small changes in gross development values (GDVs) and/or build costs, so the ability to see what other developers have been able to justify for land of a similar type can be incredibly powerful.

“The difficulty is finding these land comparables and the key related information, without which it can be challenging to understand true land values. This is why we designed this unique-to-market feature. As with all Nimbus features, this delivers on our core mission of helping clients to find the best opportunities, assess their viability, and connect with owners quickly – saving significant time on research and due diligence.

“The ability to find comparable land deals quickly and easily within Nimbus will be revolutionary for many developers, as they will no longer have to manually search through multiple sources or make estimations based on incomplete data.”

To help investors and developers achieve accurate GDVs, Nimbus has also released a residential availability layer. This allows clients to see quoted prices for properties on the market, and, when used in conjunction with residential sales comparables, paints a complete value picture. All these features are found in the residential market sector of Nimbus’s location analysis tool – putting the information clients need right at their fingertips.

To date, more than 10,000 clients have grown their property business thanks to Nimbus’s comprehensive property intelligence platform. Clients use it to gain unique property insights using data gathered from more than 1,000 trusted and reliable data sources, such as HM Land Registry, council planning portals and the Ordnance Survey. Nimbus®, a property intelligence platform, is the UK’s leading proptech company. Using data drawn from thousands of reliable sources, Nimbus is the country’s most trusted one-stop-shop for all property professionals, ranging from investors and developers to commercial occupiers and surveyors.

Delivering all the information they need in one easy-to-use platform, Nimbus saves its clients 80% of their time, so they can quickly find opportunities and connect with owners to help them land the best property deals.

Building on decades of property experience, brothers Paul and Simon Davis realised that data was critical to deliver scalable results. Underpinned by a deep-rooted “technology first” approach to problem-solving, in 2015 they introduced the industry-disrupting Nimbus platform. An agile, evolving solution, Nimbus provides a competitive edge, delivering success to thousands of clients every year. Learn more at https://www.nimbusmaps.co.uk/
