The beauty of property development is that the developer makes most of the profit yet he or she acts primarily as a coordinator. You don’t need to project manage or lay bricks or draw plans. Having found a suitable project, your role is to hire other people to do this for you and to coordinate their efforts. Business owners already possess the core qualities needed to do this, namely good communication, management, organizational and people skills. In fact they use these skills every day without thinking they could also use them to develop property!
