Real estate refers to the immovable property – land, and its superstructure. The value of land has been rising ever since man settled down for agricultural life, since more and more people were laying claims to limited land. Today, the population of the world is a huge six billion and rising, and the land available for development restricted. At the same time, the requirements for living space, business, communication and travel are increasing at a phenomenal rate. The real estate business – comprising of developers, investors and promoters, as well the people involved in designing and construction – has been fulfilling the needs of the market in this regard.
However, developing and managing real estate is very costly. At places where construction is done in anticipation of future development, it is even risky. Often, not enough profits are made, and sometimes even losses accrue. Real estate financing is very important whenever we need money for investing. It could be that we want to buy new land, or develop it, or it could be that we want to buy already developed real estate. Investments may be required for development of roads, market complex, housing, or anything else.
