Chattanooga Land Development
One of my favorite parts of my job is working with Chattanooga builders and developers looking at land development. Sometimes you have to be willing to get out and walk or ride to see how the land lays. You can do a lot of early work with GIS Maps and satellite images but not all. One of the major reasons that a lot of Chattanooga Realtors do not work with builders is there they do not know how to help them find the land for their next project.
Land development is not for everyone. You have to be willing to get out in the woods with the snakes and the ticks. You also have to be able to show the builder what you think could be the best use of the land. Builders do not have time to sit in an office and look for Chattanooga land all day. They have agents that they work with in different parts of Chattanooga that help them.
It takes years to be able to hone the skills needed to be able to help land owners and developers. It takes a long time to develop the trust that you need to be able to work with a builder. Land development is different then just selling a SPEC house for a builder. When a land owner calls us and they have average for sale they think automatically that the best person to sell their land do is a developer. This is not always the case. Depending on where the land is located, how many lots we think we can get out of it, and the average sales price for new construction there may not me enough profit in the project for most builders.
How do you start to work with builders?
