What is a subdivision in real estate?
Dividing land into pieces for sale or development creates a subdivision. Houses, condos, shopping malls or even industrial parks can sometimes end up on subdivided land, though the most popular usage leads to small urban or suburban communities. Usually, these subdivisions are owned by one seller and are hugely popular for families.
