Introduction

There are five basic needs in the human life. Housing is one of those and it is very essential for every people. Real Estate Industries are working to provide residence for those people who would like to buy apartment to leave in a luxurious and peaceful condition. Besides, this industry also has created a large number of jobs in the job market. Thousands of backward linkage industries such as: Brick, Sand, Ceramic, Sanitary wears industry etc. have set up on the base of real estate industries. So, it is playing a great role in our national economy as it has a huge impact on the country’s revenue collection. There is about five hundred real estate Companies in our country. All the companies are not well recognized by the people. Many of the companies do not fulfill their commitment. Unfortunately many of the people have lost their faith on few developers. To satisfy those people Tropical Homes Ltd. has taken the challenge and trying to do the best. Tropical Homes Ltd. is one of the fast growing Real estate Company. It is very new in the Real Estate market but I found the peoples behind it are very experienced and professional. In this internship report I tried to go through a total look at the overall Real Estate business in Bangladesh and then I started work at Tropical Homes Ltd. to make the report better informative and meaningful. So that the readers will able to get a simple idea about the sector’s history, nature and style of business, services etc including a live example of a well known company that is Tropical Homes Ltd.

 

OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY :

Study or working on any subject must have objective. It may be only one objective or a combination of some objectives. My study also have objective. Before submitting the report I need to discuss briefly my Broad Objective and related Specific Objectives.

Broad Objective

The main objective is to prepare an internship repot and some realistic recommendation to increase the selling of Tropical Homes Ltd.

Specific Objectives 

  • To find out whether the sales growth rate of Tropical Homes Ltd. is going upward.
  • To find out the pricing of Tropical Homes Ltd. comparing with other Real Estate companies.
  • To find out the influence of Real Estate in our national economy.

METHODOLOGY OF DATA COLLECTION :

Sources of Data: The followings are the sources and methods of data collection for the purpose to prepare the report:

Primary sources: The primary data have been collected mainly though working experience gathered by working through internship period and survey. The survey includes the following:

Observation

Interview

  1. Personal Interview
  2. Telephone Interview
  3. Personal interview through questionnaire

Besides these Oral & informal interview with officers and employees of the Marketing Division of Tropical Homes and also Face to face meeting with the Company personnel and Face to face meeting with the different sales people.

Observation Method applied to some specific area of interest of different Real Estate companies during survey. To observe the areas I have visited various projects physically. It was very useful to collect the primary data. After making the observation it was needed to talk with the companies to know their price, features, amenities etc. about their projects in that specific area. In that case the Interview Method was applied.

Secondary sources: The secondary data have been collected from different publications of different Real Estate companies in Bangladesh, publications of Real Estate Housing Association of Bangladesh (REHAB), publications of Tropical Homes Ltd. and related Magazines and Websites.

 

Preamble:

Urbanization is an outcome of both population growth and rural-urban migration. As urbanization increases, more and more people are becoming city dwellers. Bangladesh is not any exception to that picture. The ever-increasing urban population is catering an increasing demand for shelter. The right of shelter is a fundamental right, which is ensured by both the declaration of United Nation (UN) and the constitution of Bangladesh. But it is very difficult on the part of the government of Bangladesh alone to ensure housing for all. Here comes the need of private sector real estate development.

It is a recognized fact that the health of the Real Estate Development Sector is the barometer of the National economy. In Bangladesh Real Estate Business started in Dhaka in late seventies. During 1970s there were fewer than 5 companies engaged in this business. In 1988 there were 42 such developers working in Dhaka and now in 2004 there are about 250 companies engaged in this business.

 

Formation of REHAB:

With the number of companies increasing gradually, various problems concerning the housing sector cropped up requiring early solution. At this stage it was necessary to form a trade association of the Real Estate developers to protect the overall interests of the sector. To strengthen the role of real estate sector Real Estate & Housing Association of Bangladesh (REHAB) was formed with only 11 members in 1991. The objective of REHAB was to promote formal private sector Real Estate Development in Bangladesh.

 

Present Performance:

REHAB is the only trade organization of Real Estate Developers with a current membership of 145 Developers. All major institutionalized Developers are members of this organization. REHAB is also the “A Class” member of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI). In the recent years REHAB has played a very significant role in nation building through Real Estate Development by its members. The members of REHAB contribute a large amount of revenue to the Government exchequer in terms of Registration Cost, Income Tax and Utility Service Charges.

REHAB organizes its most colorful annual event REHAB Housing Fair each year in Bangladesh for the member developers, financial institutions and building material providers. It has already successfully completed three Housing Fairs during 2001, 2002 & 2003 at Dhaka Sheraton Hotel Complex. To foster the growth of Real Estate Sector REHAB plans to organize Housing Fair abroad for the Bangladeshi individuals who are living different countries of the World to buy apartment, land and commercial spaces in their home country. Accordingly, the first – ever Housing Fair abroad organized by REHAB on August 2004 at Quality Hotel Hempstead, 80 Clinton Street, New York, USA.
