Skip to 0 minutes and 6 secondsThere are many uses of land, from residential to agricultural and industrial. Land use is administered by various government agencies and directed by zoning regulations. These uses which are influenced in part by the characteristics of the land also influence the value of the land. These are some of the areas we will investigate this week. A large component of time this week will be spent on understanding how to determine and then gather critical data about a selected property or land to help you make well-informed property investment decisions. We then have a brief introduction to the property cycle and how you could determine where within the property cycle a particular area is.
