Do you need qualifications to be a property developer?

Not really!

Anyone can be a property developer and even though you can get a degree in property development, but you don’t really need one. At the same time you do need to get educated in property development before you jump into a project.

The problem with learning from hard knocks is that in property development these hard knocks can really knock the wind out of your sails… (if you catch my drift :wink:

But to answer your question, you can be a property developer without any qualification or certification.

If you have the drive then you will make it happen. If you have background in a related professional field, your transition into property development will be that much easier.

Becoming a property developer without qualification
