When it comes to property development, your costs are typically one of your top priorities. It’s always about getting the job done in a timely fashion but with the least amount of cost possible. So how do we work against these rising construction costs?   

You will learn that it’s best to work together with your builder because if your builder goes broke in the process you will lose more in the long run. Working together will allow everyone to be successful rather than taking a loss.

In this week’s episode, we talk about how you can deal with rising construction costs. We dive into different types of building contracts, why things are taking so long and examples of price cost items. So if the cost of construction is getting in the way of your development project you won’t want to miss this episode!
