Infill Lots

Investing in Infill Development with OakWood

Investing in infill properties, also known as infill development, can be a lucrative endeavor for investors. Infill lots refer to vacant or underutilized land parcels within existing urban or suburban areas, typically surrounded by existing infrastructure and communities.

Building investment properties on infill lots offers several advantages. Firstly, it maximizes the use of existing urban or suburban infrastructure, reducing urban sprawl and its associated environmental impact. Infill development can revitalize underutilized areas, improving the aesthetics and functionality of communities. Additionally, it can help alleviate housing shortages in densely populated regions by increasing housing supply. From an investor’s perspective, infill properties often benefit from proximity to established amenities and have the potential for quicker appreciation in value, offering a promising return on investment. Overall, infill development presents a sustainable and economically viable option for real estate investors seeking to capitalize on existing urban spaces while addressing housing needs and enhancing neighborhood livability.
