The answers will help you ... as well as me, 'cause I'm only a two-finger typist.
Colm, I live in Cape Town, in Sydney, in Toronto, in LA, in Birmingham ... wherever ... will your real estate development eBook work where I live? After all, you live in Australia!
As long as you live in a Free Enterprise economy, then the way we go about real estate development is the same everywhere.
The only differences between, where you live and where I live, are the Local Authority Rules & Regulations ... Not How We Go About Real Estate Development.
Example: Zoning Allowances
What you can build on a 1,000 square metre (square foot) piece of residential land will be different, not only from country to country, but also from City To City in the same country. It is the local town plan that determines these capacities, OK.
Here's a better example ... Building Regulations.
Can you see why Building Regulations would be different in the sub-tropical climate of Brisbane and the freezing temperatures experienced in Canada?
The climatic conditions make many of the building regulations change. One location is concerned with heat retention inside the home and the other is into heat reduction.
This effect the Cladding, insulation, glazing etc
I hope those two extremes in temperature make the point for you.
So to wrap up this topic ...
. Real estate development processes and procedures are the same no matter where you live in the Free World ...
. It is the local Council or the Local Authority's Rules & Regulations that differ. Phew; glad that one's out of the way.
