Is property development for you?

Posted 9 April 2019

Have you always dreamed of starting a property portfolio and becoming a property developer?

If you’ve ever driven past a subdivision and thought to yourself that perhaps you could enter the market by way of property development, the life of a property developer could be for you!

If the following statements sound like you, then property development just might be your next venture.

Property excites you

If you’re passionate about property, you are not alone!

Many professional developers enjoy the process of finding the right property to develop and the challenge of creating a custom solution that meets market needs – while supporting their own wealth creation plans!

Many people start by finding out as much as they can on property development by researching online, buying books and signing up for seminar. So fuel your property passion by educating yourself on property development and the market, so you have a solid foundation to begin with.

You have lots of questions

If you have a lot of questions to ask, it’s only logical that you speak to property developers themselves. Take up the opportunity to talk to professionals and mix with like-minded property investors and developers.

You don’t even need to leave the comfort of your home, as there are many forums and chat groups dedicated to property developing.

If you are looking to connect with local developers, consider attending a networking function which will allow you to meet a variety of people within the industry.

Many developers are happy to share their knowledge with you, which is a great opportunity for you to learn from someone else’s experiences.

You know exactly where you would like to build

After looking into R-codes, reading up on local council regulations, and knowing where others have already built, knowing where exactly you want to develop and start your investment portfolio is a great advantage before approaching your builder.

Once you have picked your suburb, consider its micro-location and ask yourself, is this block of land on a street you prefer? Where are the nearest shops, public transport routes and schools?
