(It's kinda like, you focus on your Project and we do everything behind the scene & make you & your business shine with lenders & auditors)

Here's A litmus test...
If you can honestly answer this question, you can leave this page right now...

Scenario: You are four months in a construction project; your trades are acting up, you are slightly behind schedule on a job that you secured by dropping your price to stay competitive, thinking it would keep your team busy.

What is your cost to complete this Project?

If You Don't Know The Answer Or If You Cannot Find Out The Answer By Clicking No More Than A Couple Of Clicks, Then You Need To Keep Reading.

Here's The TRUTH...

It is exteremely difficult for 95% of small to medium size contractors and builders to know the Cost To Complete; of their projects; at all times.

Most small and medium-size contractors & project managers will Find it Difficult to answer this question accurately.

Because...

  • They usually have too much on their plate and are busy putting out fires.
  • Amidst all the chaos on a worksite, tracking budgets, organising invoices and paperwork is the last thing on their minds.
  • Their cash flow management is non-existent. If Account A for Job A has the money, and Job B needs some invoices paid, they are robbing Paul to pay Peter left, right and centre. And when's it's time for reconciliation – they've got no clue as to who was who in the zoo.
  • Their construction bookkeeper does not care about correct project tracking or allocating transactions in cost codes. If at all, a bookkeeper will only allocate everything into a few key parent categories – which is fine from an accounting point of view – but is useless for knowing the actual cost of the project or from project accounting purposes.
  • Even if they have software, either their PO's or Change Orders are falling through the cracks or are non-existent.
  • Their construction bookkeeper would only update their books once in 4-6 weeks. Meaning, most of the time, they are flying blind.

But that's not the end of the problem...

It gets worse...

Here's the real problem you're facing…

  • You almost always have to drop your price to win jobs, hence attracting and taking on jobs that cost you money.
  • Anytime you get a new job, you are not entirely confident of your allowed costs because you have never analysed a job post-completion. In other words, there is no benchmark.
  • You are missing out on discounts and are getting hit with excessive fees and interest.
  • You have no negotiation power because you have no record of what happened in the previous Project.
  • You occasionally end up double paying your suppliers, trades as you have no track of which trade/supplier got paid, how much and for which job.
  • And worst of all, the jobs you do win are from people who are out there to get you. They are waiting for you to make a mistake, so they don't have to pay.

Hi, I'm Amber Khanna

I have been developing residential projects since 2012, and in my first five years, starting from scratch, I turned over $65m in development projects.

From 2012 - 2019, I operated my own residential construction company in partnership with a licensed contractor so I could control the construction of all my developments in house. And although my involvement on the actual construction site was limited, my role was to find, stack, track, finance & execute developments from start to finish. I had to track real estate development as well as construction costs for my business as well as my investors and report to them weekly.

I soon realised that so called construction bookkeepers, even the ones who were charging me $50/hour – had no clue as to what was going on. Things were happening so fast on-site that bookkeepers were always behind and could never give me an accurate cost to complete for my projects. And I hated it because these were financial aspects of my projects that I couldn't keep any tabs on.

I tried many of the shelf construction softwares for the construction company. However, I found three inherent problems with them:

  • The learning curve and getting others in the company to adopt the new software.
  • The speed of data entry. Software is only as good as the Data you feed in it. And if your team is lagging behind In data entry, you will never know where your project stands financially.
  • Task & Site Management Focused - most industry softwares focus on task management and task scheduling, rather than Financial tracking.  

Hence the reason I developed Lead Books, a system and a collection of proprietary tools that we use to track projects without the bells and whistles and focus on what matters the most, project's bottom line.

After managing and tracking numerous development & construction projects, I developed proprietary applications using Google Sheets that enable Me & my team to track projects & provide proficient reporting in real-time.

In 2015 I launched Property Development System, a step by step system to find, stack and execute residential development projects. Over the years, I have also created various real estate development feasibility & project budgeting applications.
