Residential Land Development White Paper - An Insider's Guide

The basic tenet of land development is simple: purchase land, hopefully at a low price, then sell it later, hopefully at a higher price. Generally, between those two steps something is done to increase the land's value, like subdividing and / or building improvements. Very simple in concept, yet unbelievably complex in implementation.

This 50-page white paper is intended for anyone interested in residential land development regardless of background, experience, or previous knowledge. The author, Tim Garrison, P.E., has designed, planned, managed, and permitted hundreds of projects, from simple short plats to large, complex subdivisions.

Specific topics include:

  • Land development - risks vs. returns
  • Maximizing profit - tips and tricks
  • The tax game
  • Partners or investors?
  • Borrowed money - the double edged sword
  • Borrowing money and banks
  • Purchasing and tying up land
  • Feasibility and due diligence
  • Consultants - which ones to use and methods of compensation
  • Platting the land: boundary line adjustments, short and long plats
  • Developing land - step by step.
  • Water - wells or municipal water
  • Sewer - septic or sewer
  • Storm drainage - detention, treatment, conveyance
  • Access - roads, curbs, sidewalks
  • Franchise utilities - power, telephone, gas, and TV
  • Sales and profit
  • The Proforma (Part 2)
