So what's changed?

Innovation is at the heart of BNP Paribas Real Estate's ambition. They knew that being proactive in their site sourcing would improve the services they offer clients.

Providing tailored services for the changing needs of their various clients, time was never on their side.

Opting for strategy over struggle, this market-leader turned to LandInsight to simplify their site sourcing.

How LandInsight's helped

James, the Director of Development Planning, and Jess, a member of the development team, use LandInsight every day to find off-market opportunities and rule out bad investments.

Planning search

Setting planning filters over LandInsight's constantly updated information means James and Jess can quickly identify sites with approved or rejected applications.

By assessing planning history, they can create air-tight planning applications for their clients, much faster than their competition.

Comparables Data

When they have found the right site, James and Jess need to know it's at the right price.

By quickly seeing the sold and estimated value of off-market sites compared to others in the same area, they can continue to provide value-boosting advice for their clients based on real evidence.


Ownership search

On a large infrastructure project around the M25, BNP Paribas Real Estate were left with an isolated site to develop that had no access routes.

Thanks to LandInsight's ownership search function, the team found out who owned the surrounding land and bought that too. They created easy access and unlocked the value of their initial site.

LandInsight is the whole package of information – in one.
