2017 for our Land & New Homes Department.

Many estate agents are  now starting to extend their services to include land and new homes, which is something we have been doing at Ryder & Dutton Land and New Homes for decades. We already have a dedicated department which is recognised as a leading authority in the new build market. Our experienced team have years of experience in the field, understand the market and are on hand to deliver a seamless sales and marketing service for land owners, builders and developers.

2017 saw 166,100 new build starts and 152,220 new build completions up to the end of quarter 3 (Sept 2017) which is approximately 10% up on the previous year. Whilst this is a step in the right direction this is still some way off the Governments’ target for one million new homes by 2020 to meet the demands of the growing population and a critical housing shortage.


We had a successful year in 2017 selling out on a number of new developments across Ryder & Dutton’s entire branch network. We completed on the final phase of the popular Bakestones development in Delph which comprised 46 new homes, sold all 16 plots off plan A Primrose Bank in Oldham and are currently marketing various other new sites including 20  new homes at Boundary Park in Oldham, 26 new homes at Whinberry Place in Rawtenstall and 16 new homes at Brookdale Mews in Failsworth. We also have some exciting new developments to be released for sale in the New Year including  32 new homes in Mossley,  16 new homes in Scouthead, 26 in Bacup and a new phase of 16 at Primrose Bank to name a few. If you are looking for a brand new home please contact our new homes department who will not only help you find your dream new home but also guide you through the whole buying process including Help to Buy.


We have also been busy on the land side of things and have secured buyers for every instruction taken on during 2017 including sites in Glossop, Saddleworth, Mossley and numerous plots in the Rossendale Valley.


In 2017 we became members of the Land and New Homes Network, a network where membership is exclusive to leading estate agents across the country who, like Ryder & Dutton specialise in Land and New Homes sales. We are constantly looking for land with residential planning potential and our membership of the LNH provides us with untapped opportunities and access to planning data which places us in the best position to identify new land and development opportunities for you. We are the only estate agent with a dedicated Land and New Homes department within our trading area to have the privilege of being members of the network.


2018 is going to be another busy and exciting year here at Ryder & Dutton Land and New Homes. Whether you own a piece of land (with or without planning), are looking to source land suitable for residential development, or have a new development and would like to work with an experienced agent, our team are here to help.
