Real Estate Development Strategy for Investors
NEW RELEASE 2022 Edition – By Ron Forlee
In 2004 I published my first book, “An Intelligent Guide to Australian Property Development”, followed by “Australian Residential Property Development” in 2005. In 2014, due to overwhelming interest, I wrote “Australian Residential Property Development for Investors”. This book is a sequel to that 2014 volume which has been updated and reprinted.
A significant aspect of real estate development is that it is creative in its built form. Deciding how to tackle a new development requires lateral thinking. There is no static or structured approach for a new project. Understanding alternative strategies place you with a range of options at your disposal.
This book covers various strategies, including forming syndicates and joint ventures, developing with minimal cash, creative financing, securing low-cost development sites and creating a real estate portfolio with passive income. It also covers the new technology movements of Proptech, Fintech and Contech and how Block-chain Technology is disrupting the real estate industry.
My case studies demonstrate how using these strategies over my long career has resulted in favourable project outcomes. If you want to advance your career in the exciting world of real estate development, this book is a ‘must read’.
Most readers will have acquired some development experience or at least have read my previous book, “Australian Residential Property Development for Investors”. This will make it a lot easier to understand and appreciate the ideas in this book and will arm you with a greater understanding of various development strategies.
