Steps for conducting a property development feasibility study

Following are the steps that need to be included in a feasibility study process.

Step 1 - Define the project scope

Each feasibility assessment starts with the project scope. Identifying the project’s objective, target market, and location. After defining the project scope, identify any obstacles affecting its viability.

Step 2 - Conduct market research

The next step in a feasibility study is to conduct market research. It includes analysing demand, competition, and economic trends. This information helps identify project risks and opportunities, establishing project feasibility.

Legal due diligence entails analysing the title deed, property survey, easements, and encumbrances. It’s crucial to check the property’s title and legalities before building.

Financial due diligence examines the development’s land acquisition, construction, finance, and income sources.

To ensure financial feasibility, precisely estimate project expenses and revenues.

Step 6 - Create a Feasibility Report

A feasibility report concludes a property development feasibility assessment. This report should describe the study’s results and recommend whether the project should proceed.

The report should cover market research, financial feasibility, risk assessments, and mitigation plans.
