Are you wondering how to find a subdividable property that stacks up?… There’s quite a bit you should be looking at before you close the deal. 

To help you get an extensive understanding, I’m bringing in one of my previous guests. My good friend, Jay Sidhu from Vision Surveys Consulting, is back for another 2-part episode.

So we’re going to pull everything apart and give you an inside view of how we would go about finding a subdividable property from where to begin searching, using intramaps, understanding split coding mistakes, what to do about bushfire-prone areas, other things to look out for and much more.

And wait for Part 2 where we’ll be covering costings, doing a feasibility, how much you should pay for it, the timing and strategy for developing that property including how to uncover some hidden potentials
