How much could real estate development cost you?

Unaware of the costly mistakes that can arise, many people venture into real estate development without the necessary experience. Here are just a few of many:

  • Not knowing what you can build on a property before buying.

  • Failing to perform due diligence on the property and its financial and legal history.

  • Overlooking environmental, structural, and Geotech issues that result in major losses.

  • Overpricing the final product for the exit strategy.

  • Creating a finish design that isn't fit for the market.

  • Engineering a building that is too expensive to build relative to what's in demand.

  • Underestimating construction costs and time and realizing it too late in the process.

  • A lack of effective marketing and sales strategy that leads to low demand.

  • Inability to adapt to market changes resulting, ultimately resulting in financial losses.Producing poor presentations and investment decks leads to expensive capital or no capital at all.

  • And a substantial amount more.

Leverage Our Experience & Avoid the Mistakes

At BLDG-UP, we understand how much it costs you not knowing enough about real estate development. We went through our growing pains. Decades ago, BLDG-UP started the business by flipping houses, and we made many costly mistakes. As we grew the company into a multi-million-dollar development firm, the errors became more expensive. Along the way, experienced developers weren’t eager to share their knowledge to help save us money. Why would they? They went through their own pain and wanted us to find out for ourselves. So, we did. Over the 25 years of business, we took the hits and learned the hard way. It cost us millions to understand what we know today. That’s why lenders and partners look for a long track record. They want to see that you’re seasoned and experienced, so you know what to avoid. That means learning and mastering the ins and out of real estate development and having gone through some cycles like the financial crash of 2008. Now that we have brushed off all the dust and scrapes, and the bruises are all healed, we clearly understand how to develop real estate safely, and we’re passing this valuable knowledge on to people like you who want to get involved in real estate without making the same errors we did.

Mitigate Time & Financial Risks.  Develop Real Estate with Clear & Expert Advice.

Are you considering developing your underutilized property in a prime location? While it may seem like a promising idea, the reality is that you may be lacking the essential team, resources, knowledge, and tools required to transform your property into a lucrative asset. Consequently, you may find yourself on the verge of undertaking a project that could either make or break your investment or perhaps you're contemplating selling it altogether. Instead of diving headfirst into development without prior experience, heed the wise words of Benjamin Franklin: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." It's crucial to seek expert advice to determine the best course of action for your property and avoid costly mistakes that others have already made. Don't be hasty to offload your property without understanding its true potential just because you're afraid to take on the endeavor. You might be sitting on a hidden opportunity that holds significant value. Many individuals in your position aspire to uncover the potential of their property, yet they often spend many years and a ton of money attempting to do so, only to miss out on favorable market conditions or encounter costly obstacles. Utilizing BLDG-UP’s experienced team, you can eliminate the need for such time-consuming and money-sucking endeavors. By seeking advice from BLDG-UP, you will gain invaluable insights into the optimal development possibilities for your property and receive comprehensive guidance throughout the entire real estate development process. Our consultation encompasses various aspects, including administration, accounting, deal structuring, assembling and managing a design team, navigating municipal approvals and permits, engaging with the public, collaborating with the construction team, and employing effective marketing and sales strategies to ensure a successful exit strategy. Furthermore, BLDG-UP provides in-depth feasibility studies and real estate pro formas, enabling you to precisely determine and plan the most viable options for maximizing returns on your investment. We also offer guidance on capital raising through private investors and institutional banks, ensuring you have the necessary resources to support your project. Once you have a clear understanding of how to achieve the full potential on your property, you can make an informed decision about whether to embark on a development journey with us or sell it at its true worth. Don't let another sleepless night pass without knowing what your property is truly capable of. Avoid the pitfalls of starting a project that could lead to financial losses. Seek the best advice available and witness the success of your project unfold.
