Once your idea has passed the feasibility plan with flying colours your next step in to create a business plan. The business plan will put flesh to the bones of your idea. Example You have the idea of buying a neighbouring house which is derelict, bringing the house back to code and then renting it out. Then you used the property development course feasibility template to assess whether this actually makes sense. You figure out that you will make a rate of return of 15%. So you are ready to proceed. Now you can use the property development course business plan template to develop the idea.

Feasibility Cost Plans

Feasibility Cost Plans Want to know how much a construction project will cost you ? We will provide you with an estimate of your construction costs suitable for insertion into a feasibility cost plan. This service includes for: Reviewing your information such as drawings, sketches etc Measuring the Gross Floor Area (GFA) of your proposed works Researching our private data bank of construction costs to perfectly match your construction project Bringing all our experience and skill together to finalise an estimate cost What sort of projects do we provide costings for ? Bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchens Refurbishments Loft Conversions Extensions Basements New houses Housing Estates Landscaping and private gardens Apartments Offices Industrial units Schools Supermarkets/stores Leisure facilities How accurate is it ? It is a ball park figure, an educated guess. Our figures are based on projects that we have previously worked on. They are likely costs. However, if you want detailed costs you need to invest in a detailed cost estimate and then a full priced tender from contractors and suppliers. The more detail and accuracy you want, the more you will have to spend - more detail means more time and resources increasing the cost. Who is this suitable for? Property developers, Architects, property owners who want to know the likely cost of their construction venture so they can calculate the projects feasibility. Knowing your ventures likely construction costs helps determine whether a project is feasible or not. What is it not suitable for? It is not a detailed cost plan. A detailed cost plan is a full measure of all available quantities and the pricing of these quantities. This takes a lot more time and so costs more. A detailed cost plan is not required for feasibility planning - it is overkill and not sustainable to pay for detailed cost plans for dozens of property ventures that may never proceed. How long does it take ? It takes a minimum of two working days. How do you buy this feasibility cost plan ? Simple. Email us your drawings and information and we will send you our quotation and invoice. We only start work on the estimate once you have paid and we have received the payment. How much does it cost? It costs at least £100 Sterling plus VAT and maximum £500.00 Sterling plus VAT. It really depends on the level of information you have.
