    Above Time lines are for guide only. It can vary subject to Authority Approval, Weather, Finance, Neighbor/Authority objections, Design constraint, Re-sale, Holidays, Material-Labor shortage, etc.

    Few things to consider while you are in process of property development:

    • Have sufficient cash to fund development for period of above time line
    • Don’t go on property/toys buying spree without consulting your broker/banker.
    • Allow time for F#$% ups , it happens all the time.
    • Be Persistent and don’t give up halfway!
    • Keep in mind –there is a solutions to every problem in world, just have to work out “W” when, where, what, etc!
    • Above all, Enjoy the Process!

    P.S we haven’t done community development project as yet, but min time lines are around 4-5 Years subject to above conditions and million other things.
