This course provides an introduction to the real estate development process, with an emphasis on the role that the economic developer plays. Typically, the economic developer is the one that works to balance the dynamic between the profit orientation of the private developer and the public objective to be met by the real estate project. Learn about the various tools that are available at the local level, including tax increment financing, bonds, land assembly and eminent domain, in addition to the many federal programs available.

The recession certainly has slowed new development projects, but it doesn't have to stop it. New developments take a long time for major projects – such as sports facilities, convention centers, hotels or performing arts centers – to come together. Now is a crucial time to do the pre-project planning required for when the market comes back!
