Karen top 3 learning from the property development deal:

  • Never underestimate the power of your agent relationships – this was served up to us and negotiations were super easy and quick.
  • Be greedy when others are fearful – the agent originally had numerous developers interested, but they all backed out as COVID started to bite.
  • Create the product your market wants – we could have built 6 townhouses or divided the land into smaller blocks, but our end buyer is an established buyer and the good size block and wide frontage will be more appealing.
