It was found that the interested investors could build a house or building under such conditions. The investment analysis showed that an area of 4 acres with 4-story building containing 49 rooms and an area of 4 acres with 4-story building containing 77 rooms was very attractive. For the financial ratios analysis, Internal Rate of Return (IRR) was at 15% which yielded more than other forms of investment such as bank, gold, stocks, and bond.

Other financial ratios included Profitability Index (PI) at 1.01 and return from investing such as ROA, ROE, GPM, and OPM was at 7%, 7%, 80%, and 72%, respectively.
