Real Estate Development e Association Logo by Anna Kluttz The improvement of land for its intended use and governed by industry practices is formulated by individuals with ingenuity, creativity, and entrepreneurship. This alliance of real estate development industry entities will focus on and guide the future of land development practices. Buying, selling, designing, approving, permitting, and developing land for sustainability and profit are the threads binding land development into a global industry represented by members of the Real Estate Development e Association.
WHEREAS the real estate development industry is fragmented by location which each area of the globe isolated unto itself as to how land should be improved; WHEREAS market price points, product, use and demographics separate users of land from each other and rarely do they network or exchange new trends in sustainable real estate development practices; WHEREAS the real estate development industry is not fully represented by any one trade organization which elevates land development as its primary focus;
WHEREAS the industry does not have a central organization acting as a clearinghouse for sustainable and profitable land development practices, information and policy positions; WHEREAS agencies within all levels of government regulate land activities by imposing out dated and antiquated regulations, standards and criteria; WHEREAS real estate development education is non-existent except for isolated graduate courses in real estate. The importance of teaching the tools of trade is essential to the sustainability of the industry.
