Land for commercial use can be one of the most lucrative investments – if it’s the right land under the
right terms. There are many factors that go into choosing a parcel of land for your real estate project,
including size, location, zoning and proximity to transportation.
A successful investment comes with having a thorough understanding of planning, zoning, engineering issues, availability of utilities and mineral and water rights. Coldwell Banker Commercial® affiliated professionals provide the information and services you need to maximize the value of your real estate portfolio and your return on investment.
Land that is designated for commercial use plays a critical role in the local economy. It can be used for a wide range of businesses, including warehouses, industrial, office buildings, retail, hospitality and parking lots. Commercial land is often zoned for specific types of usage.
A significant amount of land in many communities is dedicated to residential usage, including single family homes, apartments, townhomes, condominiums and mobile homes. Important factors that impact a property’s residential suitability are accessibility, features such as ponds and hills, and distance from local amenities like shopping, recreation and schools. Zoning restrictions may determine the height, size and proximity of homes that can be built, as well as what type of additional facilities can be added.
To attract residents and visitors, communities dedicate land for leisure activities. Recreational property includes parks, athletic fields, playgrounds, swimming pools, theme parks, botanical gardens and campgrounds.
Also called greenfield land, agricultural properties are used for the growing and harvesting of crops and livestock. It includes pastures, groves, timberlands, orchards, animal farms and ranches.
