Todays Date: December 16, 2018

You need to have a good plan about the house market in the area you’re thinking of buying. Buying locally may be wise for a first time property developer as you must have a sensible idea of what areas are being developed and if there’s a need for rented accommodation in the area. If you are unsure of what’s happening in an area you will need to do some research. You could ask local real estate agents, read local papers and just generally ask people in the area. For instance if there’s a university in the city and you’re planning on renting out the development then find out where it is and check the properties in that area. Also observe local transport and facilities.

A great way to get ahead of everyone else is to understand where the up coming areas are in the town. Many towns have regeneration areas where lots of local government cash are being spent on.

Ask them what sort of properties have sold recently and for how much.

Just because you like a property does not mean it will be the right property to develop to either sell or rent. You must have a list at hand with what you need from the property and stick with it. Once you have chosen the correct property you’re then going to need to find the right builder to do the development. This part might make or break your development thus it is vital to find the right building company.

Coordinating the architect, designer, electrician plumber etc may be a daunting task if not done correctly. It is a little bit of a balancing act and shouldn’t be taken on lightly.

First time developers almost certainly ought to hire a contractor and let the specialists deal with all of the above. But like the property, you need to do a bit of research to find the best one. Check on-line for building contractors and ask for references.

Like everything we do in life, preparation is the key to a successful project. The more time spent researching each aspect of your property development, the more likely your development can turn out well. At the end of the day you want to make the most quantity of profit, and you will not do that if you jump in head first without looking at every detail.
