the real estate development market


1.1 Definition

The real estate development activity consists of the design and construction of real estate assets residential or not, in order to sell them to buyers who will then rent them out or use them directly. It must be distinguished from the activity of land development (developer, land developer) which aims to acquire large amounts of vacant land, then divide it into subdivisions to install many infrastructures (sewer, water...). Real estate development therefore includes all the means and actions implemented to acquire land , build a building and finally have it acquired by a customer

The real estate development market can be segmented into:

  • Goods intended for the accommodation (multiple dwelling, detached house...)
  • Goods intended for to companies (offices, restaurants, shops, warehouses, factories, hotels...)
  • Goods intended for leisure and/or to the public (gymnasiums, swimming pools, stadiums, hospitals, town halls...)
