On this site you’ll find “acres” of resources about land development.
Information relating to zoning, land planning, subdivision, building lots, improvements, due diligence and more. There are techniques and tools you can use to analyze parcels for land development and estimate value if you’re buying or selling land. You’ll be taken inside the real estate development business to learn what you should know about vacant land (and why), what makes a land parcel good or bad for investment, how land development deals are different from buying or selling houses, and why “what’s the price” is the last question you should focus on if you’re thinking about buying or selling land for development.

Literally and figuratively, land is the foundation of all forms of life. Nothing can exist without it and it supports everything in the environment. Land has been witness to acts of charity and cruelty, inspiration and insanity, grace and grit. It has been abused through centuries of waste and otherwise victimized by every act known to and done by mankind. Yet it has always
Every day in every part of the world, people use land in some way. They look to it for support and to provide them with food, shelter, transportation or a livelihood. Since the beginning of time, individuals have believed that land was so vital to their existence that they were willing to die to defend their rights to it.
Yet while land itself is not a mystery, its investment potential is a well-kept secret. The real estate development business has tended to be conducted like a covert operation. People thinking about buying or selling land don’t have the information they need. They can’t find land development handbooks and resources or other real estate investing guides. So for many of them, buying or selling land for development has become a deadly game of Russian roulette. It doesn’t have to be that way.
Land development involves work, not smoke and mirrors.
Real estate development is not a “get rich quick” business, and you should be wary of those who claim that it is in order to try to sell you their “secrets” for hundreds or thousands of dollars. You won’t find a magic wand on this site, but you will find many of the resources, techniques and tools that you’ll need in order to make more educated decisions about buying and selling land and real estate investing. So just look around and remember, in the words of Thomas Edison, that “opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.”
