What is Infrastructure?

The fundamental systems and facilities that support a community or society, such as transportation networks, water and sewage systems, power generation, and communication systems. In the context of real estate, infrastructure refers to the physical and social structures that support and serve a development or community. Infrastructure can play a critical role in the success of a development, as it can affect the quality of life, property values and the marketability of the area. Good infrastructure can attract more investors and buyers, whereas poor infrastructure can discourage them.
