Why do you invest? To grow your money? Stack up retirement funds? Or maybe you’re looking to get returns, or leave a legacy for the generation coming after. Whatever your reasons are, investment is one of the best possible things to do with your money. And if your investment portfolio doesn’t yet have land in it, the big question would be “why”.
There are so many reasons why investing in land is a great idea, and you don’t want to be that person who’s missing out. Not to trigger FOMO (okay maybe a little), but here’s why buying land is a great idea:
Land is largely low-maintenance. With land, you don’t have to do much; particularly if you’re buying for long term purposes. Save for occasionally trimming the weeds growing on it, land is the “golden child” of investment. It can’t be moved from where it is, can’t be destroyed by fires or floods, and altogether it’s pretty well-behaved.
Definite appreciation. The price of land is not determined by factors like how pretty it looks, or how in-style it is. Land is certain to appreciate with time, and this is not affected in any way by superficial factors. You can rest assured that your land is going to bring back an impressive return on investment. Whatever way you choose to look at it, it’s a win.
Make of it what you want. Another thing that makes land such a good idea is how flexible it is, and how easy it is to customize. You can choose to use it for agricultural purposes, lease it out to business owners, use it as a car park, maybe? Or you could just leave it alone. It’s your oyster!
You can buy from anywhere. When it comes to land, distance is not a barrier, because it’s easy to buy land from anywhere. You don’t need to be in the state or even in the country to purchase a piece of land. Ease of purchase is definitely a plus.
Land is a finite resource. Mark Twain once said “Buy land, they’re not making it anymore”, and there’s yet to be a better way to describe land. Land is a very finite resource; there’s no new land being produced. What this means is, if you decide to re-sell your land in a couple years, it will definitely sell easily. One less thing to worry about!
