AHMAD KHALAF BY THE NUMBERS
Remarkable real estate developments are not the result of creative decision making. Instead, they are the conclusion of responding to concrete demand generators and sizable market gaps.
STRATEGIC REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT
Ahmad Khalaf is a real estate development professional. He focuses on realizing superior market value for his business partners.

Today, in real estate development, expecting the same results from doing the same things is not realistic. Markets change so fast. Further, most sectors are getting oversaturated. Stay ahead of the market.
SOME OF THE LESSONS I LEARNED
I should NOT make real estate development decisions based on creative decision-making processes. Whatever that process may be!
Because if I start getting creative in taking a real estate development decision, I will be MISSING the point.
“IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT THE DEVELOPER THINKS. RATHER, IT IS ABOUT WHAT THE MARKET WANTS.” - Ahmad Khalaf
I should not compete with other developers in the same market niche.
Because if I copy the competition, it will be nearly impossible to make MORE money.
“BIG MONEY IS IN CREATING YOUR OWN SPACES, NOT IN COMPETING IN OVERCROWDED MARKETS” - Ahmad Khalaf
To generate SUPERIOR GAINS, I should identify substantial, valid and long-term demand generators.
Because if I develop in-demand projects that answer to a specific target segment profile, I will reduce my market risk.
“IF THE PROJECT IS NOT IN DEMAND, THEN IT IS NOT WORTH THE TROUBLE; BUT WHEN IT IS IN DEMAND THEN ALL THAT IT NEED IS TO BE REVEALED” Ahmad Khalaf
