"hypothetical development" valuation is carried out using
the profit and risk factors to the example shown in highest
& best use to obtain the appropriate land value. The land
values thus determined are:
OPTION 1: $80 000
OPTION 2: $120 000
OPTION 3: $90 000
the highest and best use of the site is as a warehouse because that
use shows the maximum land value of $120 000 when the appropriate
profit and risk factor of 8%pa is applied.
