In the building sector, the words “lot” and “land” are often used, and a lot of people who are not adept to the industry would commit the mistake of interchanging the two. In this case, the most effective way to understand raw land, is to compare it with lots. Technically, lots are considered land; but it doesn’t hold true the other way around. A lot is a property ready for building a structure and is usually lined with utilities such as water, electricity, and even an Internet connection.
On the other hand, raw land is a property without these conveniences. More than usual, raw lands are utilized for agriculture, bringing the barren patch of earth to the frontline of food production. Yet, city limits are constantly extending and the potential for these raw lands are increasing.
