Have you ever considered investing in land?
Here at Tamara Williams and Company, we know how daunting it can be to weigh the pros and cons of purchasing vacant land.
Some common questions are:
What can I do with this land? How do I know if this will be worth it? Will I be able to turn my investment and make money? Will the value of the land increase? What will future developments in the area look like? You name it.
We understand these thoughts and are equipped to answer any and all of these questions based on our experience and expertise. Since we know how challenging it can be, we aim to make this process easier for you. Today we will highlight some of the top reasons why investing in land can be beneficial and on the contrary, why it may not be.
Top 5 Benefits of Investing in Land:
A blank slate: Upon buying a vacant lot, you have full freedom to be creative with the land at hand. Whether you build your dream Montana home on the lot, resell it, or build a facility on it, the (legal) possibilities are pretty much endless. What one chooses to do with the land also does not need to be decided overnight. Investing when prices are good and then formulating a plan for the lot at a later point is also a possibility.
Short or long-term investment: When you invest in land, the chances that the lot will later have a high resale value are high, as most property investments grow in value. Land investments are unique as it is an asset that is tangible, again typically increasing in value with time.
Flexibility: The lot is your lot. So, unless you need to turn around the investment quickly, you have the full ability to add whatever value you would like to the property in whatever time span you wish. The freedom that comes with owning land can be a truly fun and liberating process if you work with the right people and have the funds to do it.
Minimal upkeep work: Unlike a developed property whether that be residential, commercial, and so on, vacant land requires much less attention. The land can be tended to at your description, as nothing necessarily needs to be maintained consistently unless you wish to add value to the property by manipulating the land, building structures, and so on. The land may remain the same for long periods of time.
Financial security: Often times diversifying your assets can be a great way to build financial security for yourself, and this is certainly true if done strategically. Financial management can be incredibly difficult and scary. That being said, a great benefit to a land investment is that it is far less risky than other investment options, as again, the land typically does not depreciate and it is very predictable, more so than a stock investment, for example.
Why shouldn't you invest in land?
You should not invest in the land if you are not financially capable, if you are unwilling to proceed with the thorough process, or are working with someone who is not going to do their very best to perform for you.
There are a lot of steps within the process of investing in real estate, several tests need to be done on the soil, lots of documents to be signed, and so on. This is why it is vital that you, the buyer, are ready to step into the transaction. The behind-the-scenes of the transaction are heavily reliant on who you decide to work with. There are agents that help or hinder your real estate experience. At Tamara Williams and Company, we pride ourselves on taking the burden off your shoulders to make the journey as seamless as possible.
