How Do I Develop My Property? How many lots can I fit?

You are sitting on 5 acres and you are considering what development opportunities you might have...let us help you get started!

 Do you want to develop the land yourself and sell lots directly? Do you wish to partner with a developer on a pay per lot basis? There are different ways to approach a development and most of the time your capital will determine which direction you go.

 Things to Consider Before Developing:

 - How many lots can I fit?

 Some developers will work to capitalize on every lot possible and the end result is smaller lots and more density. Other developers choose to include trails, parks, larger lot sizes, and more flexibility. Depending on market conditions, surrounding competition, and supply/demand you will have to make that call. Smaller lots will be less expensive and should sell quicker based on price point. Larger lots will be more expensive and could take longer to sell. Some buyers will want 3 car garages and others will be okay with a 2 car garage.

 - Should I have CCRS in place?

 Many homeowners have a sour taste for CCR's and home owners associations. As a developer you want to maintain a certain integrity and in order to enforce the rules, you will need to develop CCR's and an HOA. When you have half of a neighborhood full and one of the home owners decides to park a car in the street for 3 months, you will need rules that allow you to clean that up.

- Are there water and sewer connections available?

 In order to put in lots you will need to provide power, sewer and water. These utilities cost money to tap into and sometimes you will need to pay to bring them in. The capacity of the current lines will need to be adequate for your new development. You might also have to pay impact fees for each lot/house that is built and you will want to check on that.

 - Do you have the time?

 Developing is a full time job for many. If you are thinking about doing it part time, ask a professional for advice. There is great opportunity in developing real estate and there is also great risk. Make sure you have all of the information before you begin.

If you have property and you want information on whether you can develop it or not, call us today!

Spokane Listing Agent | Selling your home

Selling your home in this market should not be torture.  Hire an agent with the right marketing plan and someone who will work to get the home sold.  The market is evolving and if you haven't sold your home in a while things have changed.

Everything is online. The internet has changed everything and if you don't believe did you find this blog post online?

Websites like Zillow and have changed the way agents advertise and have worked around the traditional flyer box and open house approach.  Don't get me wrong, there is a place for flyers & open houses and if you can utilize the internet, you'll find better ways of spending your time.

It used to be that the listing hit's the newspaper and other agents see their clients and the inside track was the one that got the deal done.  You had to be in the know.  You had to work the phones and drive around showing houses.  Clients called your phone when the signs were in the front yard and you might get floor calls throughout the day as people had questions.

Now people have pictures, websites, county information, maps, etc.  The IDX agreement allows agents to market other listings on their websites and publications.  It gives larger website the ability to pay for feeds and then turn around and charge agents to market their own listings.  If they don't pay guess who gets the leads...the other agents who do pay.

Find out where your agent spends their money to market your home.  Is it in the same places that you use to search for homes?  Have they defined a market and the approach to go after that market?  Do you have good pictures to show the home?  Is your agent receiving the leads on your home?

Ask questions.  Price it right.  Sell it quickly.
