Steps to Property development


Are you looking to upgrade the value of your property but you don’t know what to do? Do you want to get the most value out of a vacant or unused property you own but you don’t know where to start? Then these steps to effective property development might be the solution you’re looking for.

Many property developers know how lucrative and rewarding developing properties can be.  If done rightly, it can be the ladder to a stable and more secure financial future. But if executed wrongly, it could result to frustrations, financial losses, disappointments and many more unpleasantness!

To prevent this from happening, let’s take a look at some decisive steps in property development:

  1. Site analysis – Inaccurate feasibility study of a property can lead to unwanted construction costs and financial losses in the future. So before doing anything else, analyse the site and seek professional help to know if developing the property will be profitable.
  2. Planning Permission – Knowing how you want to develop your property is not a guarantee you can plan how to go about it. Although you have a great idea, using professional help from an Architect or Project manager would go a long way. It will help you eliminate the hassles involved and save you from the stress of thinking too much.
  3. Securing Finance – Trying to secure finance from banks is always difficult, as it involves a long checklist. So before speaking with your bank, seek professional help to know your total project costs as well as expected profits. Get all the information you need and use them to secure financial aid you’ll be happy with!
  4. Construction – There’s no better way to take care of this step than to hire a professional contractor with a proven track record. So do some researching, interview prospects, get recommendations and make your decision. Simple as that!

As with maintenance & many other projects involved with building and construction, property development is a cycle that never goes away. However if you follow the steps, developing your property will be easier and less stressful.
