A real estate subdivision refers to the division or splitting of a large piece of land into smaller individual lots or parcels for the purpose of development and sale. This process is typically undertaken by developers or landowners who want to transform their property into residential, commercial, or mixed-use developments.

Subdivisions are often planned and regulated by local governmental authorities or zoning commissions to ensure that the division is done in a manner that accommodates infrastructure, utilities, and meets community development goals. The subdivision process may include creating roads, laying utility lines, and establishing amenities or facilities within the subdivision.

Each subdivided lot or parcel is given a specific legal description and is usually intended for the construction of a building or structure. The lots are then typically sold to buyers who can develop them according to the regulations and guidelines set by the subdivision's governing body. Real estate subdivisions can range from small residential lots to large-scale industrial or commercial developments, depending on the size and purpose of the land being subdivided.
