Provo’s Changing Commercial Real Estate Market

Provo’s commercial real estate development continues to expand at an exciting rate. Provo is one of the top commercial office markets in the nation. Its unique combination of affordable land, relocated business leaders, and an educated populace close to universities suggests that this growth will continue. According to the National Association of Realtors, Provo is a leader in real estate’s recovery following the pandemic slump.

Since the pandemic, office real estate specifically has generally declined, suggesting that market trends have shifted to more flexible working locations. Provo, however, is an exception. All other sectors continue to grow as well, and the housing market, in particular, has increased dramatically in Provo and all along the Wasatch front.

Of the 20 industries listed, real estate was in the top ten.

The last economic strategic plan, completed, in 2013, listed target industries that Provo City would focus on over the next five years. These industries continue to play an essential part in Provo’s economy and growth and include:

Frequently Asked Questions About Real Estate Development in Provo, Utah

Should I hire a real estate developer in Utah County?

Hiring a real estate developer in Utah County is highly beneficial to maximizing the return on your investment, especially since commercial construction projects involve hundreds of decisions every day. Real estate developers will shoulder the majority of the load by walking you through the development process. Whether it is navigating budgetary needs, acquiring permits and licenses, contracting vendors, or other day-to-day duties, real estate developers will be right by your side. You can also count on a real estate developer to advise you on land acquisition decisions if you are still in the purchasing phase.

You can begin your search for a real estate development team by contacting the Boyer Company’s experienced developers.

Do real estate developers need a license?

Real estate developer requirements don’t include certification. However, commercial developers or self-employed developers can explore various licenses that may boost their qualifications. For example, the Realtors Land Institute’s Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) credential is a license offered within real estate development. Land developers can qualify by submitting several documentation pieces, including an active real estate license, institute membership for at least six months, and a minimum of three years of real estate experience in areas like real estate sales, brokerage, or development. Additionally, applicants must complete courses through Land University and pass an exam. Property developers must keep their membership active for it to remain valid. If you want to learn about property developers’ specific requirements in your area, contact the Boyer Company.

How do real estate developers get financing?

Many real estate development projects require financing from outside investors. If needed, a professional real estate developer can offset the stress of financing and help secure funding. A real estate developer should have many long-standing banking relationships and offer a vast real estate portfolio showing financial strength. The hired development firm should have an outstanding reputation and no history of defaulting on a project or lending obligation. Another role of a real estate developer is to offer their internal cash for project delivery costs incurred during the initial stages of project development, including design fees, site due diligence expenses, and project mobilization costs. The ability to invest additional equity as needed to facilitate financing terms is a plus. Banks should be familiar with the developer’s operations, development capability, and financial capacity. Once you receive funding, you will need to manage your project’s costs and expenses. You can also work with your real estate developer to create a plan that optimizes your budgetary needs. While the entire property development process, including financing, seems complex, having an experienced real estate developer can help you navigate the challenges ahead of you. Contact Boyer to learn more about our real estate services.
