Successful and talented real estate developers, like Hunter Estess of Dash Development and Estess Contractors, are the heart of what drives the real estate industry. Developers purchase property with the plans to construct upon it, either for residential or commercial purposes. Reliable developers have the proper experience and education to engender the trust of both their customers and their workforce in order to create new developments.
Real estate developers often begin their careers by purchasing property to build and improve on, then selling the property for a profit. After succeeding in the manner for a time, they may build up enough capital to make connections and work with top construction and development companies on larger building projects. Some developers may have started out in construction in the first place, before doing well enough to create their own development teams.
Developers like Hunter Estess must be properly educated in their field. Planning, architecture, and law are all degrees that can be pursued before starting a company. Other professionals may complete graduate degrees in areas such as Master of Science in Real Estate, a Master of Real Estate Development, or an MBA with a concentration in real estate. Estess and other developers also have the necessary skills to be successful. Analytical, financial, interpersonal, marketing, and organizational skills are vital to be a profitable developer. Of all these skills, the financial ones are the most important as developers must make sound choices when it comes to financing, purchasing, developing, and eventually selling their properties for gain.
