How?
Why?

...one for each of them.
Twenty-five individuals developing and building a four-plex...

good street buildings

ludicrous parking regulations
Incremental Development
is happening
It happened in this country a hundred years ago...
This nascent group of small-scale developers are already developing, financing, and building their mixed-use 2, 4, and 16-plex buildings.
This is happening now.
...and it's happening again.

(Who knew?)
Square buildings are cheaper to build, and easier to lay-out.
You need $1 of rent to afford $100 of New Construction
So, if you can rent an apartment for:
Then you can afford to build that unit for:
Your Hard Construction Costs will probably be:
Your goal is for Soft Construction Costs to not exceed:
Which means the most you can pay for land is:
$1,000
$100,000
$75,000
$18,000
$7,000
}
(25%)
(75%)
It's many people who are
already building small-scale
and don't yet know about CNU or "Incremental Development".
Quickly determine if a project is viable.
For Each Unit:
The Rule of 100 lets you:
Isolate the primary costs of a project.
Chances are good,
You already know what 'Incremental Development' is; you've just never heard the phrase before
