As Southern California's economy continues to recover and stabilize, many landowners seek to make gains on previous land-value losses or stagnation. Joint venturing and strategic partnerships allow the landowner to recoup losses through land contribution, while the developer contributes expertise and financial resources. Landowners who are not equipped with the expertise to plan a parcel of land for the greatest return on investment may consider joint venturing with a developer who has a proven track record. The Bradco Companies provides innovative team-building to solve the landowner's recovery concerns and the developer's need to actualize a great concept with a completed deal.

The Bradco Companies team-building approach extends to today's savvy business, building and property owners; land and building developers; and investors who understand the importance of looking at market demands and feasibility prior to acquisition or development. Market research and feasibility studies may significantly influence acquisition decisions, site planning and pricing strategies.
