Taking Your Cue From Urban Property Essentials

Jun 2, 2008
As mentioned in the previous article "The Better Commercial Spaces," it is indeed important to consider the people who would use your property. It means that this would become a give-and-take procedure that you have to do over and over again. To be able to do this, you must first become "The Better Owner." The better owner is not only focused on making money but also focused on his or her customer's welfare. An owner who cares for his or her customer becomes successful in both business and social status.

Do not overlook the power of relationships in the industry of commercial real estate.

It is important that you take care of your rental property before letting others use it. You have to keep in mind that it takes great management to oversee and cleanliness to maintain the value of your property. Make sure that the electricity works or the heater is not broken. Fix holes and remove unnecessary clutters. This is important. It also requires you to invest in the preparations such as this. It would gain you an increase in your property's value. This investment also shows that you are someone who allows the development of your tenant's quality of lifestyle. This kind of deed is not something you can do everyday.

The rapid urbanization of the last century has resulted in a significant amount of slum habitation in the major cities of the world, particularly in the Third World. When urban planners give their attention to slums, one also has to pay attention to the racial make-up of that area to ensure that racial steering does not occur.

A slum, as defined by the United Nations agency UN-HABITAT, is a run-down area of a city characterized by substandard housing and squalor and lacking in tenure security.The term has traditionally referred to housing areas that were once respectable but which deteriorated as the original dwellers moved on to newer and better parts of the city, but has come to include the vast informal settlements found in cities in the developing world. Most slums lack clean water, electricity, sanitation and other basic services.

Urban planning has became popular because of the growing need to get factory workers into healthier housing, rather than stuffing them into fire-trap tenements. Nowadays, urban planning takes all aspects of a city into consideration. It includes plans for safety, aesthetics and common sense placement of everything from houses to factories. Parents wouldn't want their children's playground next to the water treatment plant, for instance, and urban planning helps eliminate such problems. Goals for attractive architecture for city buildings are put into place and pleasing green spaces are planned. Good urban planning gets schools into the neighborhoods where they are needed most, places hospitals in centralized locations, allows for growth and plans highways accordingly.
