The topics are:

How to do a development appraisal  

A development appraisal is the financial assessment that establishes the viability of a project and is an essential tool for any would-be developer to master. 

This practical and hands on two-hour session will walk you through how to assess a development opportunity and run the numbers before committing to a project.

Led by Gus Zogolovitch, this is will be a hands-on session featuring a live project and will include time for attendees to get advice on their own schemes.

Part of the session will cover a practical element on how to do an appraisal and will include an example that you can take away and adapt for your own project.


Finding land 

There are plenty of small sites out there but how do you find them? This two-hour masterclass will get you started on your land-hunting journey with first-hand knowledge on how to find and pitch for small sites.


How to raise finance

Securing the finance for your first development can be tricky as no one wants to lend to developers without a track record – but how do you establish a track record without the finance? In this two-hour class we examine the different routes to securing funding.


Special Bundle Price

There is also a special bundle price if you would like to buy a ticket for all three Masterclasses
