Real Estate Development: Land Banking


The Course Will Teach You to

Course Objectives

Land Banking is the first stage of the seven stage real estate development matrix. It is considered a passive investment position, but is an important aspect of the overall process.

Course Description

Course Description

Property is acquired as underutilized, undeveloped or raw land and held until market or general conditions present an opportunity for value creation. Planned public infrastructure improvements and zoning changes can impact market trends that result in added value. Land Bankers need patient money, but the goal is for the spread between the eventual sales price and acquisition price plus holding costs will deliver acceptable financial returns. Once these goals are achieved and market conditions are right, the property moves to Land Packaging, the second stage in the development process. This session will explore how property can be acquired, financed and positioned to achieve the highest and best potential use for future development.
