The Hollis Morgan New Homes department was launched in 2012 following a strong demand from clients who had purchased sites through our Bristol & West Country Auctions.

We now regularly work with a wide range of land agents and developers who are seeking professional advice to purchase land, market the completed developments and to maximise returns…our aim is to be the number one new homes agent in the city for small / medium size developments and we have a proven track record of working with vendors to successfully exit schemes and helping them identify their next site.

Calum Melhuish and his team are here to help with the acquisition and valuation of sites including detailed Gross Development Values appraisals and advise on the latest trends and demands of new build buyers in both the buy to let and owner occupier sector.

Once a scheme is approved, we have the expertise to assist with show homes, off-plan sales and the increasingly sophisticated marketing required to ensure your development is launched with the right profile and momentum to make it successful.

A comprehensive & professional service for developers

Plot finder service

Hollis Morgan offer the widest range of small to medium-size plots and development opportunities across Bristol and the West Country via our high profile auctions.

Our New Homes clients have exclusive, select access to ‘off-market’ development opportunities.


We have created a partnership with planning professionals Stokes Morgan Planning Consultants to offer a complete service from site acquisition, to Planning, to marketing.

GDV appraisal

Once you have identified a site and chosen a scheme, and considered Planning options, we can provide a professional, realistic GDV report to help appraise the site potential.

Sales strategy and launch campaign

Once Planning is Granted and the development under way, our New Homes team will handle the following:

Pre-marketing and off-plan sales

We recognise the importance of the cash flow generated from off-plan sales, and our aim is to sell 20% of the units off-plan with our pre-marketing initiatives.

Brochures and signage

The key to the success of any new homes campaign is momentum and creating a sense of urgency. We will assist with high-profile site hoardings and brochures alongside an energetic media campaign, utilising our experienced professional designers, illustrators and photographers.

Launch Day and the Show Home

The bulk of the interest and sales are likely to occur once the show home and majority of the development are completed. We have excellent contacts to help create a winning show home, with bespoke furniture, staging and lighting.

Deposits and closing the sale

We will liaise with your solicitors to ensure the best buyers are chosen and deposits promptly taken, and will stay in contact until completion.
