Many developers simply sell under-construction properties at very low rates in order to get the funds required to complete their real estate projects. The earlier real estate is purchased from under-construction projects, the lower the real estate prices will be compared to later phases of construction, and by the completion of the project, the prices of commercial real estate in the project will have grown by more than 40%. However, numerous factors must be considered, including the long history of the developers, their good reputation, and their expertise in the field of real estate development.
When real estate developers or private investors want quick cash, they may promote their current properties as reduced bids in order to expedite the sale. In this case, the investor must investigate the location and significance of the invested property, as well as the population density in the area to be invested in.
