This research deals with the expansion at the expense of agricultural land, its pattern, city morphology and real estate problems in cities, as these lands have economic importance, but the construction brigades are at the expense of these lands. Due to the obstacles facing the city in terms of expansion (agricultural lands), and the increase in the population, the demand for housing and equipment has increased, and the situation has resulted in spontaneous consumption of the field and expansion in a random manner. Based on the current situation of the study area, we have developed a set of suggestions which revolves around directing the expansion and preservation of agricultural real estate in the future.
