Example of Project Saving
20 units @ $450,000 so $9mil GR, extra funding cost is $170,000, or $8,500/unit, so let’s say you had pre-sales budgeted at 3% upfront and 3% on completion, by starting without pre-sales you would save the upfront marketing commissions on 10 units, which at 3% is $13,500 per unit, so a $135,000 project saving.
Or looking at construction, say it was $200,000 per unit cost to build, even at 4% cost increases per annum that is $4,000 per unit cost increase for the 6 month delay to secure pre-sales, or $80,000 to the project.
