Zakâh on real property

I have two plots of land. Upon one, we are building our house. The other is still empty land. Must I pay Zakâh on either of these properties?

You do not have to pay Zakâh on the plot of land where you are building your house.

As for the other plot of land, if you intend to use it as a source of income, then you have to pay Zakâh on it; otherwise, you do not.

And Allah knows best.
