Let’s continue our discussion on finding a subdividable property that stacks up.  

For those who haven’t listened to Part 1 yet, I suggest you get into it first so that you’ll learn all the steps you need to take to avoid mistakes when starting your search. 

In Part 2 of my interview with repeat guest, Jay Sidhu from Vision Surveys Consulting, we’ll be going into the details of preparing an overall feasibility study. As an investor, you’d want to look at the costs and potential profit margins. Likewise, you’d need to decide whether this supports your strategy now or would it be better to develop the property later.

On top of that, Jay and I reveal some variations you can potentially do and how you can unlock hidden potentials.

Jump into this second part of our extensive discussion by tuning in now.
