Working Together to Build Exciting, Livable Communities

Since our beginning, FirstService Residential Texas has been providing expert guidance to many of the state’s most prominent residential developers to help bring their visions to life. Our experienced Developer Services team has a successful track record of working with developers, from conception through build-out, transition and beyond, to add value to their planned communities and ensure their marketability and long-term financial stability.
 
FirstService Residential Texas thoroughly understands the complex design, operational and legal requirements of planning and developing communities in Texas, and can provide valuable local insights about your target market. 

For example, the dynamics of covenant restricted communities in Texas are constantly changing due to market trends, land availability, and increased requirements mandated by changing legislation. That’s why it is critical for developers throughout the state to develop community associations with supporting documentation that is well-researched, flexible and forward-thinking. 

Supporting Developers at Each Stage of Development

Ideally, our Developer Services team will begin working with you at the earliest stages of development, prior to the recording of the governing documents, to gain a better understanding of the entire project, including land characteristics, product offerings, sales projections and association involvement.   As the project advances, we can leverage our extensive planning and association management experience to guide you through the complex design, legal and operational issues developers commonly face.  In addition, we can help you plan the most desirable amenities and features to enhance your community’s property values, safety, marketability and continued viability.
