How Much to Pay Land for New Development - Real Estate Investment
 
15:42
How much should you pay for the land when you want to develop it for a new home or an urban infill project? This is a common question from newbie real estate investors and the value of a piece of land or a house is usually determined by the market. Different buyers in a market though, might be looking at different things. If someone who wants to buy a house and live in it, the value can be tied to emotions or from comps in the area. If someone wants to buy a house to rent out, the value can be determined by the rent that can be achieved. In my case, I buy a lot of properties for urban infill, meaning that I build new, houses on lots in urban areas. For me, the value of the land is directly tied to the price of the finished, new home. In this video, I walk through of land or lot acquisition cost analysis for a new construction, spec home build for an urban infill real estate investment project. This spreadsheet is not meant to be all-inclusive of every cost I might have in a project, but a quick look to help me determine if a property is worth pursuing.

Insulating with Spray Foam for Temperature and Batts for Sound Attenuation
 
04:34
For more educational real estate videos, subscribe to this channel or find me online at http://lynncurriebuilds.com ------------- Insulation decisions for houses in Central Texas are a huge consideration. In this house we've decided to go with spray foam insulation on both the roof deck and the walls for temperature control. The benefits of Icynene, or spray foam insulation, in this climate are something that many buyers look for. We've had the Manual J run o the HVAC system and sized in appropriately, and were able to spray 7" at the roof deck, and 3.5" on the walls, making for an extremely comfortable house and what should be manageable electric bills. We've also put batts in certain walls for sound attenuation. This will prevent excessive noise in the lower floors and outside of the wet areas. ------------- For more educational real estate videos, subscribe to this channel or find me online at http://lynncurriebuilds.com
