Development property involves a wide range of activities and processes from purchasing land to building and developing facilities. One definition of property development is “the continual reconfiguration of the built environment to meet society’s needs.” While this can be anywhere from roads to high-rise office buildings, this article will discuss a specific segment – the “average” investor working on small to medium-sized residential development projects.

The above photo shows this story. Many years ago a Developer-Builder team named Peter and Margaret Tarvudd asked me to find a project for them. Of course, I found one right away and sold them the land which is now one of the finest quality Condominium Developments in the entire area called Harbor Watch. “Because of my Kitchen and Interior Design background I was able to assist them with some suggestions that added to the functionality and ambience of each residence. I suggested higher 9ft ceilings for a more spacious feeling. Larger kitchens with a functional island with windows toward the living room from the interior.” Joe Blachy
