Best Town Planner - How to subdivide land?

Understanding the concepts of subdividing land effectively with Best Town Planner

How can I subdivide my land?

In order to subdivide land in a well-established suburban area, you need the assistance of an expert to craft an effective design of a house that is meant to fit onto the vacant portion of the land in question.

On successful completion of the house design, it must be sent to the Council for approval. This approval from the Council gives you permission to build a house in that land and is known as 'planning permit'.

The planning permit comes with around 20-40 pointers that are of utmost importance. On successfully meeting these pointers, the Council will then issue the 'Statement of Compliance'.

Once the Statement of Compliance has been put out, you can get yourself a conveyancer to get your property subdivision registered with the land titles office.

The successful registration of the land subdivision leads to the new backyard being recognisable by its new street number. This marks the completion of the subdivision.

How long does property subdivision take?

It takes at least 9 months to get the Statement of Compliance.

For instance, the simplest backyard subdivision is a corner site and that takes anywhere between a year to a year and a half for completion.

How much does it cost to subdivide land?

The overall costs for complete land subdivision would round up to at least $40,000.00

Important considerations for your plan of subdivision

More often than not, people look to salvage huge profits through property subdivision after obtaining the planning permit from the Council.

However, it should be noted that in order to obtain the planning permit from the Council, all conditions for the successful completion of the subdivision need to be met.

All amounts listed under the 'How much does it cost to subdivide land?' has to be duly paid in order to successfully complete a backyard land subdivision. As such, you will to be able to the backyard and pass it to our purchaser.

The minimum time required to complete a subdivision process is 9 months, and on an average, it can take around 12-18 months.

At this juncture, it should be noted that successful completion of the subdivision in your backyard does not translate to the market being ready for you.

Quite often, even though you might be having land subdivision for sale at prices cheaper than blocks with houses, your potential buyers would be put off with the idea of building themselves.

In fact, you would have better chances of selling your subdivision to a local builder who would be ever ready to build a home on the land and make a profit out of it.

Needless to say, you would make a profit before the builder does.

How much profit can you make out of a backyard land subdivision?

In the case where you have built the approved home and sold it as a house and land package, you should ideally be making around 15-22% of the selling price. Obviously, anything more is always a great return.

In the case where you sell a vacationland subdivision with the tag of 'ready to be built upon', you can make around 35 – 45% of the selling price.

It should be understood that the market for house and land packages is greater than that of homeowners looking to build a home. The 'Important considerations for your plan of subdivision' section addresses this aspect clearly.
