Some medium-size entrepreneurs here purchase a big lot that they convert into a compound - a fenced property with townhouses inside that they sell or rent. One of my husband's relative has that business and he said they earn good because generally big lots are cheaper than small lots. And their townhouses are selling like hotcakes so it's really a good business. However, now that they are running out of big lots in the Metro, their target is the suburbs which have bigger and cheaper lots. However, townhouses in those areas are not attractive for now.
