003 OLD BALTIMORE PIKE, Newark, DE 19702  

5.6 Acres of land; terrific location & good frontage on 2 roads. Very good potential possibilities! The elevation of the property appears to be good for the area & there is a stream that runs through more of the east side of the property & it flows along the front of the property. Most properties around the area have 1/4 acre lots. When development is done, about 1/3 of the land is used for common space & roads, etc. Therefore, the amount of space that could be subdivided is about 3.75 acres. Multiply that by 4 & that will give about 15 building lots. Average price of houses sold within 1/2 mile of this land is $360,000. If new construction, the price of homes would be averaging about $412,500. Multiply that by 15 & the total gross amount will be somewhere around $6,187,500. The cost affiliated with the development of each lot will probably be somewhere around $60,000 per lot. That will cost around $900,000. There will also be a large amount of money that will be required to do a "Major Sub-Division". That cost will probably be somewhere around the price of $250,000 but the price is now way lowered to $199,900. Subtract that from $6,187,500 and the gross income (not including cost of land) will be about $5,037,500. Typically, builders don't want to pay anymore than 15% to 20% of the total price for land. Therefore, according to this structure, the land value may be somewhere between $756,000 - $1,008,000.
