# 29 Factors that can Evolve your Land Value!

There are no mathematical formulas by which the market value of the land can be ascertained. The determination of the market value involves a little amount of guess work which is of quasi – scientific nature. Generally, the market value is based on the sale price of the very property under consideration or by comparing the land whose market value is determined with the instances of sales of similar lands in a similar neighbourhood.

Each plot of land has great influence on the use on which the land is put depending upon the supply and demand in a particular locality. The design of each plot characterises the sale price of land. The market value of the land is governed by various factors which include its location, situation, size and shape, type of locality.
