Our Property Developer Guide

1) Research the Area

No matter where you’re looking to build, there’s always land for you to snap up. But researching the area for your potential investment is a must. There are various sites such as Zoopla that can give you a fantastic insight into key factors such as average property price and comparison to UK averages.

“Study transport links, schools, activities in the town centre. All these factors weigh into the property value.”

Research recent trends of an area and potential developments happening in the future. Croydon represents a fantastic development opportunity because of the rejuvenation plans of the town centre.

2) Finance Carefully

Securing finance can be relatively easy for property development. Banks and private financial groups offer various packages in providing you with the funding needed to get your project underway.

“Investment from other parties can help release more funds needed elsewhere in the project.”

Financial groups is certainly a good solution in securing funding quickly whilst offering rates that aren’t extortionate. There are numerous financing options for you, but make sure you ask questions and are fully aware of whatever agreement you sign.

3) Plan the Project

We cannot underestimate how important organisation and planning is during each stage of property development. First-time property developers need to ensure that there is a plan outlining the timescale, costs and designs of the properties.

Extensive planning can really help you remain on top of things and provides you with a detailed overlook in your project. Property development is a large investment, but if planned for properly, profits are there to be made.
