Frequently Asked Questions

About Develop Connect

WHERE ARE YOU CURRENTLY CONNECTING SELLERS WITH DEVELOPERS?

Develop Connect is currently connecting home sellers with Property Developers in the Melbourne area.

WHAT TYPE OF PROPERTIES DO YOU CONNECT?

We are looking for all types of properties, including residential, office, and commercial. The larger the land the better.

HOW LONG HAS DEVELOP CONNECT BEEN AROUND?

We started Develop Connect in June of 2015 with a mission to change the way potential development sites are found.

I AM PROPERTY DEVELOPER, CAN I SIGN UP?

Absolutely, we encourage that you do in order for us to contact you about future sites that meet your criteria.

About Your Offer

HOW CAN YOU OFFER MORE THAN MARKET VALUE?

Property Developers are actively searching for homes in suburbs that allow development to occur and treat it as a business. As a result, property developers build apartments on the land and turn a profit. This means their margins are much bigger and therefore able to offer a higher price than the average home buyer.

HOW DO YOU COME UP WITH THE OFFER PRICE?

We take pride in our method for accurately valuing potential development sites. Our property development feasibility model and expert statisticians will calculate a return on investment.

If we don’t have enough information to value your home, we’ll reach out for more details. Usually we can communicate via telephone or email, but no matter what, your offer and our time is always free.

HOW MUCH DOES DEVELOP CONNECT CHARGE?

The actual offer is always free and we work hard to get you multiple offers. Selling with us allows you to sell without any of the waiting and uncertainty on the market place or anxiety of an auction.

About the Selling Process

WHY IS THIS BETTER THAN SELLING THE TRADITIONAL WAY?

Develop Connect is a platform designed purely to connect home sellers with Property Developers. Rather than going to Auction and hoping that Property Developers have heard about your home for sale. We have hundreds of Property Developers on our database that are already looking today, giving you wider exposure and enabling you to get more money for your home.

IS DEVELOP CONNECT LICENSED?

Yes, ESCU Property Pty Ltd, the owner of the Develop Connect website, currently holds a Victorian Estate Agent’s License – no. 078381L

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE?

We contact our database of active Property Developers and advise them that you are considering selling your home. Developers will provide us with offers and we prepare the proposals for you to consider. This can take up to 30 days. This enables us to contact our large pool developers and achieve the highest offers.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I SIGN OFF?

The process is identical to you selling your house to a buyer through a traditional agency. You appoint a solicitor to prepare contracts and we have both parties sign the Contract of Sale and Section 32 based on your negotiation and terms.
