How to Get Started With Your Development Project

Making a start on your development project requires looking at many different factors. This blog is the essential to making a start.

Beginning a development project is a significant milestone in the property industry, whether it's a small-scale residential build or a larger commercial venture. However, initiating such a project comes with its challenges, notably in securing funding and navigating the complexities of development finance.

Financing a development project typically involves several steps, from acquiring the land to funding the construction phases. For many developers, especially those undertaking their first project, understanding these financial intricacies can be daunting. Traditional banks and non-bank lenders offer different products and services tailored to development projects, each with their own set of criteria and benefits.

Deciding between a traditional bank loan or a non-bank lending option depends on several factors, including the project's scale, your financial health, and the risk appetite of the lenders. Non-bank lenders often provide more flexible terms and may be more willing to finance innovative or unusual projects. However, their rates can be higher than those of traditional banks.

Before seeking financing, thorough preparation is crucial. This includes developing a detailed business plan, conducting market research, and preparing financial projections. Understanding the specific requirements of your project, such as environmental considerations, zoning laws, and community impact, will also play a significant role in securing finance.
