Developers may take part in a new Southern California plan

As most people in Southern California are aware, the region does not have enough affordable housing to go around.

This could provide an opportunity for some developers.

The issues developers consider when it comes to real estate

The price of real estate and its value after purchase often depends on a variety of factors whether it is here in California or elsewhere.

Don't forget how a development can affect traffic in the area

Anyone who has lived here in Orange County for any length of time knows that the traffic can be heavy and chaotic. Bumper-to-bumper travel is more the norm than anyone would ever like to admit.

The difference between a commercial and residential development

Looking out for your rights in a new development

Every time you start a new venture, you take certain risks whether the project is here in Southern California or elsewhere.

Making a development compliant with Title 24

In addition to taking steps to protecting the environment, the state of California also took steps to increase energy conservation. The goal of Title 24 Lighting Control Acceptance Testing is to help ensure that lights are not using energy at times when they are not needed. A new development would need to ensure it complies with this energy code.

Is the debate over impact fees interrupting housing development?

California is one of the states that has a shortage of affordable housing. Accommodating all of the residents who need a place to live could be hindered by the debate over impact fees. Typically these are fees imposed by a local government on a proposed or new development and are meant to cover the cost of all of the public services to be provided to the new development. A development could be delayed or even scrapped because of these fees.
