SBD maintains a distinct advantage over the majority of developer/builders in the market.
• We purchase a majority of lots off market without Realtor commissions and often at a discount.
• We employ a direct to land owner marketing strategy through direct mail, door to door.
• Maintain longstanding relationships and incentivize Realtors with new construction list-backs.
• We build very high end speculative at custom home quality.
• We manage hard costs well below custom per foot costs. We average roughly $300/square foot compared to most custom-designed homes near the beach with development costs in the range of $700-$1000/square foot.
We market creatively using technology and social media focused on the following:
• The area’s uniqueness from an international buyer’s perspective.
• The superior lifestyle afforded a home-buyer in our chosen markets.
• Homes designed specifically to take advantage of the indoor/outdoor living aesthetic.
• The relative value West LA luxury homes provide compared to London, Hong Kong, New York, and other known luxury markets.
• Superior end product quality: giving the feel of custom, one-of-a-kind homes, creating a premium for the home-buyer.
• We change sub markets via the new homes we are building, which in turn creates a self-fulfilling gentrification process.
