Land Value Enhancement is the multi­disciplined task of bringing undeveloped or underdeveloped real estate to a developable state. It requires the coordination of land planning, zoning, marketing and economic analysis, infrastructure planning and development, community relations and a variety of other simultaneous activities. While complex, great values may be achieved for the expenditure of comparatively little capital.

THE ASSESSMENT

• Location

• Access

• Utilities

• Drainage & Water Quality

• Endangered Species

• Environmental Factors

• Geological and Soil Conditions

• Zoning

• Political & Regulatory Matters

 

The Plan

Following the assessment, a development plan and strategy for its implementation can be prepared, including some or all of the following:

• Highest & Best Use Determination

• Land Use Concept Plan

• Infrastructure Design

• Site Development Plan

• Economic Analysis

• Platting

• Permitting

• Financing

• Marketing Plan & Strategy
