Why Property Investing Is A Smart Thing To Do

Nov 17, 2007
Anyone who is retired is thinking about retirement. In the US, retirement worries are common. It seems like today there is a new investment strategy on the market almost every day, and many would-be retirees are jumping on whatever bandwagon they can to ensure they are protected financially when it comes to the retirement years. What many people do not realize is that there exists an investment strategy right under their nose that can be very successful in securing financial freedom at retirement. This investment strategy is land investment and is one of the smartest things anyone can do to increase their net worth and financial freedom.

The most rewarding investment strategy would obviously be to bear low risks yet yield high returns. That much is common sense. Good old fashion savings will not give you high returns, and stock market games are not often associated with low risks. Investing in land is one that that comes with both low risks and high returns if you play your cards right and you do not need to be independently wealthy to get into this industry. Small amount of money or large, investing in land has its special charm.

The advantages of investing in property that is not developed are great. Land property is an investment that offers consistent returns that are safer than other investments, and always appreciate in value. Thus, if you invest in land, when and if you decide to sell it, your will always get a higher return on your investment. In many periods of time the returns have far outstripped the returns on the stock market. Stock market and bond investments are currently averaging rates of returns in the 4 to 8 percent range. Land investments on the other hand can offer returns on your cash investment as high as 200 percent. The largest advantage to land investments is the significant return on your investment as land always and only appreciates in value.

Buying property in markets where land stock moves fast is prudent. For example, land investments in Florida and the Carolinas are extremely wise location points to begin land investment. This is considered a hot market because this is the area of the country that retirees are moving to. It is estimated that 50 million people will move to the South within the next two decades. The warm climate and easier lifestyle is appealing to the retired generation and they are buying real estate there at alarming rates. So another strategy would be to buy land where retirees will be moving in the next decade.

Knowing how and when to act with land investments can be done with the aid of a realtor in the area you are interested in. The better the reputation the happier you are. The more the experience the happier you are. Realtors know land the way a banker knows money, and they will always work with you to ensure your dollar is maximized. Now is the time to start thinking about it. If you act smart land investment can be rewarding.
