Ask Michael Anything [video] – How to calculate land value?

There is a lot of different material explaining the rules and calculations of land value.

This week watch Michael break it all down and discuss how land value is calculated.

This week’s question:

Thank you so much for allowing me to submit my question. house dream young land property build

Your podcasts in the past have spoken of calculating the ‘land value’ as a percentage of the overall cost when purchasing an investment.

Commentators have spoken of ensuring that the ‘land value’ ideally makes up 50-70% of the overall cost ensuring that you’re paying a lower percentage for bricks and mortar etc.

Can you please advise whether the ‘land value’ portion is calculated off what the ‘valuer general’ lists the value of the land to be or what the ‘market’ dictates the land value to be?

Thank you so much for your time and importantly your efforts in delivering such a professional and informative podcast
