There are many factors that must be considered when choosing a piece of property for building, so real estate agents must be at the top of their game if they want to ensure the needs of their clients are met. If a client needs a piece of property for a commercial building, it must be located in an area zoned for that purpose, and they generally have a few other items on their wish list. They might need an area for parking, access to the property requires good local roads, and even considerations such as water or electric connections are important.

Building a home or sub-division has a very different set of requirements, and zoning is just one of them. Many builders are seeking areas where they will be able to establish a community, so location is a key item. They will need to be near enough to shopping and transportation networks to satisfy the needs of buyers, but most of them are also looking for untouched areas that will serve as green spaces.
