The gated community business plans that are best suited for funding by private investors or approval at a bankers' meeting are those that make a convincing case not just for your expertise in similar ventures, but for the likely success of this specific undertaking. A gated community offers an exclusive residential opportunity to well-heeled homeowners who value their privacy and enjoy a sense of community. Popular in all 50 states and generally clustered on the outskirts of major metro areas, gated communities have not been immune to the recent fluctuations in real estate values, but they remain attractive investment opportunities if orchestrated properly and constructed with a eye to aesthetics, structural value, and "lifestyle ROI" for residents. Your plan should:
• Describe the community in as much detail as possible
• Show schematics or drawings if available
• Pinpoint your intended location
• Outline the property and other involvement costs (HOA)
• Itemize your start-up expenses for construction
The use of funds table is very important here and should be supported by as much research as you can muster. You want to prove to the reader that you know what the costs will be and that you have a decent grasp on the potential financial returns you can reap. Show a breakdown for each year and stretch the model out to at least five years from the first date of occupancy. Also cover your competing communities, the industry trends that bear on your business, and the marketing strategies you can use to get people into the development. You might want to have a board or advisory team profiled as well. MasterPlans can help you write this business plan with a full draft ready to review in as little as 2 weeks.
