Healthcare: The real estate companies have realized that their clients have a more significant tendency towards physical care and health. That is why the real estate projects have common areas created to meet this need (gym, sauna, pool)

 Location: Before it was easy to see that real estate projects were carried out in traditional areas, however, this has changed, due to the high cost of the properties. Now there is a tendency to carry out real estate projects in the extremities of the city.

Real Estate Project

You must make a diagram of all the steps of the real estate project process. Straightforwardly we could diagram it in the following way:

Home Since

The place can be located in your home since it would focus on real estate projects. However, you can count on a small office of 15 - 20 m2

Personnel And Organization

A small real estate company should have an architect and engineer. The advantage of this type of business is that you can request those services, in addition to the construction services themselves, per project. You do not need to assume it in the company’s form. It would be advisable to send to create uniforms that go according to the corporate identity of the business.

Finance and Accounting

It will be necessary to prepare a Cash Flow for your real estate company so that you can answer three critical questions: Initial Investment, time of recovery of the investment and profitability of the Business. Real estate companies can only benefit from this tax regime, due to the high income that can be had when developing activities. Likewise, real estate companies are subject to detraction, since they will also lease real estate (financial lease contracts are not subject to disparagement). The percentage that is deducted in this case would be 12%.

Plan Ofbusiness Real Estate

Business Approach

For the real estate business plan to be operative, the following questions must be considered and responded to, at least:

What service will I provide? Am I going to specialize in rentals? In buying and selling operations? In tourist apartments? Or

Will I combine to dilute risks? …

How will I lend it? In my place?, franchisee ?, Internet?

With what quality will I offer my services? What degree of deepening do I aspire to have in the market? What quality guarantees will I provide? How will I manage customer service?

Who are my competitors? How do they work and how am I going to differentiate between them? What agencies are there in the area? What do they offer? What advertising do they do? How much do they charge their customers?

Financial Plan

You must determine what capital you need to start and what will be your financial cushion to assume possible losses and cover unforeseen events.

Both Income And Expenses Are Going To Be Variable.

As far as income is concerned, not every month you will be able to sell or rent the same number of homes or premises (probably in May and June your revenue will increase if you do business in summer areas, but it is likely that during December and January suffer a downturn).

As for expenses, keep in mind that the salaries of sellers usually have a fixed part and a commission, which will fluctuate according to sales.

The advisable thing is to realize a plan to a year, the term that is considered normal to reach the point of balance, that is to say, the moment in which losses and gains are equalized (and from which your company begins to be profitable).

Initial Capital

It is essential that you take into account the fixed costs (electricity, water, etc.) and the salaries of the staff if you want to have it. Your specialization will also determine the expenses. For example, if you are going to rent apartments in coastal areas, the cost of borrowing your premises – apparently, in a central area- will be higher than if you are dedicated to the sale of industrial buildings, in which case you will be able to establish yourself in the outskirts.
