Real estate developers are business persons, partnerships or companies that make new buildings come to life. They purchase the land, hire a team of architects, engineers and create the vision. Then they get any necessary approvals to build the project they envision. Many individual real estate developers have huge visions of improving a city through beautiful buildings or contributing to housing needs in an area that is growing. They are creative and take the risks of development because they love the freedom to create.

On the flip-side of that sounding amazing, is that the real estate development entity also assumes all the risk involved in the project. They are the sole investor, typically, therefore if the project has problems or does not sell, they are the one that losses their investment and profits.
