Development Stages

Becoming a property developer, or even dabbling in the idea of development is not as simple as it seems. Any project requires extensive legwork and preparation, well before the first shovel is in the ground. The majority of time is spent in the pre-development stage; working through market and feasibility studies, design and planning, approvals, documentation and financing. Less than 50% of a project’s duration is the visible on site construction period.

Developing any real estate project is a complex process which can be broken down into 3 typical stages: pre-development, construction, and project completion. Below you will see a brief description of each stage and some of the steps within each stage.


Market feasibility of a project must be well established in order to minimize risk, attract financing or secure investment capital. Proper project assessment including data collection and interpretation can often take the risk out of many real estate projects.


The middle stage involves construction and improvements. Since the pre-development tasks have been completed, the project risks at this stage are greatly reduced but certainly not eliminated.

Finally you get on site and start building your project, although this stage can last anywhere between six and twelve months, depending on the size of the project, it’s the most exciting aspect of the development as you see all of your hard work coming to fruition.

Some of the common steps in this stage include:

  1. Vertical construction
  2. Project marketing
  3. Draw review on construction financing
  4. Pre-Sales and/or Leasing
  5. Schedule Control
  6. Quality Control
  7. Project Accounting
  8. Contractor Payment auditing
  9. Arranging permanent financing (if not arranged during pre-development)
  10. Arranging for property manager (if not arranged during pre-development)

The final stage of the development process is project completion, and in other words, this is the first stage of the building’s life. While the pre-development and construction risks may be removed by this point, selling the property, or obtaining tenants is still a risk.

The occupancy permit generally marks the end of the construction phase and allows for the commencement of completion stage. As with the building permit, it is based upon objective criteria regarding construction quality and is a fairly administrative process.

Some activities during the final stage include:

  1. Ongoing marketing
  2. Finding a buyer, if not done earlier
  3. Determining a hold strategy, if not selling
  4. Ramping up property management
  5. Construction completion
  6. Document completion
  7. Title registration
  8. Closing of sales
  9. Move-in day
  10. Achieving stabilization
