Your first step is to do extensive research about the industry. Get an understanding of the forces affecting the property development industry in South Africa.
There are many sources you can use to find this information, some of which include:
- The internet
- Industry experts
- Industry associations
While a qualification isn’t necessary, it will certainly serve you well if you decide to embark on property development as a career.
You can study part time for a qualification such as an MBA or a degree or diploma in property development. However, experience is a vital element to success in this field, so perhaps find a mentor that you can shadow in order to learn about property development first hand.
