New self-build platform launches in the North West

The team behind The Strategic Land Group has this week launched the UK’s first dedicated self-build tech platform, MyPlot.

Salford-based MyPlot streamlines the process of building your own home, from sourcing the right plot through to hiring the experts to take a home from concept through to reality.

With a directory of experienced self-build providers – from mortgage advisors, through to architects and contractors – listed on the site, it’s the first ever platform to offer everything in a single location.

Self-build accounts for just 7-10% of new housing in the UK – around 12,000 homes per year – while, in countries including Austria, Belgium, Italy and Sweden, self-build figures as high as 83%.

Yet, despite established demand for self-build, house hunters have found themselves unable to consider it a viable solution, while the property industry has failed to harness its potential.

As of April 2019, just eight per cent of homes in the UK were self-build – but MyPlot intends to change that.
