I own a nine-and-a-half acre property in a hot area for
residential real estate development in a suburb of a large
I've created four clearings in flat areas of this forested
hillside property and cleared a lane for access to each area
that runs from the street-front down the hillside. Other than
this the land is unimproved. Electricity, city water and sewer
have just recently become available on this street. Now I am
considering re-platting the long rectangle into four 2+ acre
tracts to increase the probability of selling and get a
better return on my investment. The trade-off as I see it
is that I'll also have to pay a lot more in taxes until the
property sells. What advice or opinion do you have on
my idea to re-plat this property?
Welcome to Cyburbia, coatimundi. I've moved your thread from the Cyburbia Issues and Help forum here to Land Use and Zoning. The former forum is for issues related to the day-to-day and long term operations of Cyburbia itself, and not for generic questions about planning and development. I've also re-titled the thread to be more specific about what answers you seek. Thanks and carry on.
