Completing a subdivision is a smart way to create profit in a relatively short time that can be used to purchase further property, or to recycle into another venture.
Finding suitable subdivision sites is difficult work. It requires countless hours of searching, calling agents, talking to council planners, engineering consultants, town planners, market research and negotiation. There are many hidden traps for the unwary when it comes to subdivisions. Have you considered subsidence, run off, easements, covenants, sewerage, water and electricity access? Are you familiar with the local DCP (Development Control Plan) and other restrictions on land use? What are the section 94 developer contributions required by council?
Completing a subdivision is not for the ‘newbie’ investor or faint hearted. It is for investors with a genuine understanding of the risks and rewards, and are prepared to work with professional consultants to achieve the most profitable outcome.
