I suggest you contact your local land conservation group, Upstate Forever. They will tell you about options that will conserve your land (to be used as a park, open space, natural habitat) and if it is not suitable for such a purpose, will point you in the direction of a smart developer. I just think its a worthy first step considering the rate of development and loss of habitat in the upstate (40 acres per day!) and the incentives to land owners (significant tax breaks among others) who choose to conserve their land through a conservation easement or similar tool. Upstate Forever is a non-profit led by some great local folks who really know and care about this area (Upstate Forever promoting sensible growth and protecting special places in the Upstate region of South Carolina). Depending on where your land is and how it is situated, such a conservation option may not be practical - and the group will gladly tell you that. But, all things aside, I Hope you might consider this option!

You need to think hard about starting a residential development right now. Believe me, there are many developers going out of business right now. The banks are sitting on hundreds of lots and many unfinished homes. It's just not the right time to do this. Besides, I hope you have plenty of cash. There is not a bank in town that will loan money on a spec residential development.

he didn't ask for advise, lol just wanted to know how to get into it, personally I think if you did have the money to spend now could be a good time, because when the economy bounces back you are not going to get the prices on things that you would now.

also this thread is from april 2008, lol, I just noticed it myself

Excuse me? This person is seeking advise, from a consultant. My advise right now is to save the money by not hiring a consultant. Believe me, I am very familiar with the area he or she is talking about. Now is not the time to spend the time or money on a real estate development. What I just offered was free advise.
