When you look at a piece of land, do you see potential? It's all about buying properties, splitting the land, and constructing new units for rental purposes. Quite often, the size of the lot matters less than the potential it represents. Unearth that creativity, dust off your strategic brain, tackle the process with open eyes, and who knows? You could turn something ordinary into extraordinary.

If you can essentially wipe out your land cost from a new build, you're already put yourself a fair bit ahead when it comes to equity and making the numbers work. - Dan Illes
