The media are currently full of real estate stupid and gloomy real estate repositions and arrears are on top and property prices are down ... its almost as if the sky is falling This situation has seen many property developers, and real estate investors generally leave the market and for those who intend to start in property development, its really scary times.
What seems like the worst time to get into real estate development can in reality be the best time. Successful property developers realize today that they can take advantage of time to their advantage their property development projects will usually not be ready to buy or rent for 2 to 4 years from the start. So if they have bought well, they are less likely to suffer from the financial situation when purchasing their property development site.
In fact, a weak market is a property developer paradise, because a weak market is a buyers market, and one of the first steps to any real estate development project is to secure a profitable real estate development site in the best possible way.
Although we know that real estate development is cyclical and many parts of the world are falling in real estate, we also know from the story that skilled property developers succeed in any market falling, flat or rising.
We work against what we think the economic conditions will be in 12 to 36 months. We are still still active in the market seeking permission from the council for a number of property development projects. This allows us to act quickly and build our approved real estate development projects when the market becomes liquid.
We believe that the following market signals are some of the key factors that will lead to increased future opportunities, especially for property developers
The measured demand for housing. In March 2008, the leading Australian forecast, BIS Shrapnel, chief economist Dr. Frank Gelber claimed that housing prices across Australia will increase by 30 to 40 over the next five years due to the builtin shortage of housing.
The current federal government has stated that they will work to increase housing breakdown and have begun to announce incentives, including tax credits of 6000 per year if the rent is rented to 20 below the market rent.
We believe that an increasing number of people, in the short to medium term, are likely to require the rental house we intend to build. This is due to either their economic stress can not afford to buy homes and / or demographic trends including GenYs less likely to buy real estate.
Although our crystal ball is incorrect, we know that we have the resources to keep real estate development sites in case of additional market fluctuations to come and increased rents really help
Our belief is that this is a golden time to act maybe once in a generations opportunity. Perhaps its not time to sell readymade real estate development projects at the moment, but its really a good opportunity to secure the development site and get development planning approval. Now, this strategy is not for everyone you must have the resources needed to keep the development site and especially the knowledge of real estate development to exploit these opportunities.
The best way for anyone thinking about property development depends on his or her own personal and financial circumstances, but the most important message here is that you have to do something
There are many strategies that small property developers currently use if they do not have the resources to complete a real estate development project right now, including turning their real estate skills into cash by finding ideal real estate development sites, maybe posting an option on the site and selling the Development Approvals to someone who has the resources.
Successful property developers know that the occasions of opportunity like this only come once in a while, and they act so that they do not miss the boat.
Regardless of your immediate financial situation, this is the perfect time to utilize your property development skills to current or future income. If you have any doubts about your ability to do that, or if you want an experienced property development mentor to guide you, act now to get the knowledge and mentorship you need. There is no time to waste
