There’s nothing like experience to provide some hard won lessons on what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to delivering a property development project. While every project is different, there are some fundamentals that can be applied across projects to help things go as smoothly as possible. Matt Chamberlain from Chamberlain Property has delivered more than a dozen small scale development projects and shares with us some of the tips and ideas that have worked for him. We cover the importance of research and understanding the market you are working in so that you can prepare a great feasibility, how resilience is something that has really helped Matt get through the many challenges he has faced, and how his business probably grew too quickly in the first few years. Keep an ear out for how Matt likes to shape his feasibilities and the key metric he looks at to ensure his land cost is no too high.
