How do you convert property from residential to commercial?

Asked by Brian Whitten, Austin, TX Sun Mar 18, 2012

I just picked up a listing that is residential. However the house has not been lived in for several years and is destroyed. The residential value is next to nothing. However it is the last residential house on the street as everything else has been converted to commercial property... Mcdonalds, IHOP, Holiday Inn...
How can I get the property changed to commercial before I list this? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help,

Due to it's location, it could already be dually zoned (residential/commercial) but if not, you could make an appeal to the zoning board. It sounds like you would have a good case to present for such a change.
