Completely revised and updated, the fifth edition of this bestselling textbook covers each stage of the real estate development process, explaining the basics of idea conception, feasibility, planning, financing, market analysis, contract negotiation, construction, marketing, and asset management. This new edition has been revised to include new topics such as sustainability, green building, and how development financing has changed since the Great Recession. It includes all-new examples, case studies, and photographs. The text is intended for university students in schools of business, planning, architecture, engineering, and law. It is also a useful beginning point for those shifting careers, either into development or between roles in development.
