What is an Underutilized Property?
Oooooh, what's that?? I think that used to be what they call an "underutilized property", rare in some cases but quite valuable!
People often ask me what an underutilized property is. I don't know that there is a specific definition that applies industry-wide, but the way that I define it is this; an underutilized property is a property that is not meeting its highest and best use based on its current zoning.
In the picture below, this was originally a residential neighborhood that, over time, saw demand for commercial uses. So, the city rezones the property along the corridor to commercial. In doing so, they created a situation where the residential uses were grandfathered in and future commercial uses would be allowed subject to specific development standards. In this case, office uses, such as real estate offices, insurance offices, etc. were allowed to locate within these buildings. This is a very relatable example but it happens at all different scales. Imagine if these structures weren't so attractive and they begged to be redeveloped. What if you were able to locate these opportunities and profit from them?
