Subdivision Developer Program

Subdivision Developer Program

Certain subdivisions and their developers must register with the Colorado Real Estate Commission prior to selling, leasing, transferring or negotiating to sell or lease a part of that subdivision which is under the jurisdiction of the Real Estate Commission.

Individual projects and/or any component sites of a subdivision are required to be registered under the registration of that subdivision and must be individually approved. Traditional real estate subdivisions, unless meeting the requirements outlined below, are to be registered with the municipality or county where the property is located.
