What is
Small Developments for Profit?

Small Developments For Profit is your step-by-step guide to becoming a successful property developer capable of manufacturing hundreds of thousands … even millions in profit from one property development deal. Like the idea of turning a big block into a duplex or townhouse development … or a cluster of properties into a boutique apartment block? Join award winning developer and educator Bob Andersen as he downloads 30 years of development experience to teach you how to master the market and become a property development pro.


Why Small Developments?

How do developers make big bucks in property? They buy the properties at raw cost price, develop them into multiple dwellings and then sell the new properties at retail price, making maximum profit in the process. Compare this to traditional investors, who buy at retail price and wait years for the market to grow. You don’t need millions to start and you don’t need any construction experience. Our online course teaches you everything you need to know to start your first small development and manage the process to a successful finish with up to 10 X the return of a single renovation project.

Top Reasons To Choose Our Online Course on Property Development

There are many reasons why we are the best in the industry when it comes to offering extensive and thorough property development courses online. Here are the top reasons why we know you will love this course as much as our thousands of other students!

  • Create Passive Income For Life – One of the biggest benefits of taking a property development short course from us is that you will be setting yourself up to obtain passive income for life. Think of all the amazing things you could do with that extra money coming in every month right now like paying off your own mortgage faster, working less, or spending more time travelling. This passive income will then take you into your retirement years where you can enjoy yourself and not have to worry financially.
  • Build Wealth Fast – Although our property development course online is aimed at long term wealth creation, you will also learn how to build wealth faster. We do this by showing you different ways in which you can add value to a property immediately, so you are not simply relying on capital growth.
  • Retire In Comfort – The retirement pension is not much and if you have not made your calculations yet to see if this is something that you can live off, then do this now. No one wants to be in a position where they have worked all their life but cannot enjoy their retirement years. We help you to build up between 3 and 7 fully paid off properties whilst you are working full-time so you don’t have to worry about money later in life.

First Time Investors

Already tackled a few renovations for profit? This is your next step! Learn to use your project management expertise to turn single property titles into townhouse developments or duplexes, multiple lots into apartment complexes and more.



From builders to project managers, designers and professional developers, Small Developments For Profit will help you streamline your processes, fine tune your project management skills and leverage other people’s money with creative finance deals.


You wanna know the 2 biggest myths about property development?
1 – you need to have millions in your pocket to get started
2 – you need to be a builder or have spent years in construction to make a go of it.

Rubbish. Stop telling yourself why you can’t be a property developer and start asking yourself what you need to know to become one.

Bob Andersen, Expert Property Developer


How Joint Ventures scale your success

So you thought you needed a lazy few hundred thousand in the bank before you could even think about embarking on a multi-million dollar property deal? While a lump of cash never goes astray, the good news is that you can pull off a profitable small development with virtually no money of your own at all. The key is to think laterally, think big, and be prepared to dedicate the time, research and intensive project management these kinds of deals demand. Bob Andersen breaks down creative finance strategies like joint ventures with landowners or money partners, call options, and vendor financing through in-course tutorials, downloadable checklists and detailed legal contracts all designed to scale your success.

Tap into a proven system

  • Get started with little or no money of your own

    using clever finance strategies that professional developers take advantage of every day. Seize opportunities when the market presents them, not when you’ve saved enough cash to self-finance. Joint Ventures, Call Options, Vendor Finance and DA Uplifts are just a few of the strategies you’ll use with Bob’s guidance, to jump start your development career and make big gains fast.

  • Earn up to 10 x the ROI of typical investments

    in one development by targeting undervalued development sites and negotiating to secure them at raw wholesale cost. Within 12 to 18 months you’ll sell your development for retail price, maximising your profit. Typical developments earn 6 or 7 figure profits. Compare this to the slow and steady way of growing a portfolio, waiting for the market to rise before buying again.

  • Professional development feasibility

    made easy with our exclusive calculators and checklists designed to decrease risk and increase profit by guiding you every step of the way. Remember you don’t always need money if you have knowledge and time! With Small Developments For Profit you can fast track your gains and build your property portfolio sooner reaching the ultimate goal of financial freedom fast.

Learn to develop like Bob Andersen

Build your portfolio fast with quick gains

It’s not by accident that property developers have large property investment portfolios.
How else can you make 4-6 times the average full time wage, working less than one day a week from home, using nothing more than a phone, laptop and a desk. Property development is the pinnacle of all property strategies, so why would you settle for less? Join Bob and learn the systematic approach he’s used to develop over 1 billion dollars worth of property throughout his 30 year career, by leveraging other people’s money or property, and by building a team of experts to help drive his projects to 6 and 7 figure profit outcomes.

Greg Bohlsen, Student

Our portfolio’s value is now over $9,000,000 (and growing!) and all properties have positive cash flow .. we have successfully applied Bob’s 30+ years of experience with spectacular results. Wendy Browning, Student
  • Bob’s property development course helped us to see the possibilities with property development and helped us understand costs associated with building on a challenging site. It gave us confidence in the ability to proceed with builder for this project and how to set ourselves up to become full time property developers. Anupriya Ravindran, Student
  • Bob's course gave me the confidence in myself to ask investors for money. In the past I have only done projects myself with my own money and banks but now I have built my own investment base.
