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.

HIGH RETURN, STEP-BY-STEP STRATEGY

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.

Is this right for you?

MYTHS AND MISCONCEPTIONS

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.

FAST TRACK YOUR PROFIT

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.

Acquisition

Not only do you need to know how to find a site… you then need to ensure you’re going to purchase the right one.

Learn how to conduct extensive due diligence so you become an expert and how to consider your early options when it comes to finance.

Financial Feasibility

You’ve found a site but is it financially feasible for you to develop it and make a profit? It’s time to crunch some numbers. In this module you’ll learn how to research your costs and estimated sales values, how to calculate your profit and how to meet the bank’s expectations for finance. If numbers aren’t your thing, then learning how to use the Feasibility Calculator in this module will be invaluable for pulling together your budget.

Finance

At this point your project is a fully approved development and you’re ready to seek finance. In this module you’ll learn about your two options: commercial and retail finance. You will also need to consider if you are going to approach a bank or a non-bank for your finance – but what does each prospect offer? This module will weigh up the two, cover the questions you should ask of a financier and give a detailed breakdown of how valuations work.
