3 Things to Keep in Mind when Investing in Land

Posted by TheLandsmith on January 29, 2021

Investing in land can be an incredibly profitable and rewarding endeavor. At the same time, a miscalculation can lead to losses that could bring an end to your real estate empire dreams.

Like anything there are some basic principals to follow that can help to protect you from losses and insulate you from risk.

  1. Understand the market.

When purchasing land you’ll want to understand the locality. Getting familiar with historic trends, the industries of the area as well as the future plans of an area can prove invaluable when calculating the best opportunity for you.

2. Having an awareness of liens and encumbrances.

Land if not properly researched can come with more headache than benefit. There can be liens or encumbrances that don’t attach to an owner but remain with a property until paid. These challenges and/or expenses transfer with ownership exposing ill-informed investors with expenses that could compromise their whole real estate endeavor.

3. Have a game plan

As described above there are unique factors that need to be considered when investing in land. Future plans of the community your property exists within and the corresponding timing will impact your exit strategy. It’s important you have an end goal with the land and understand the metrics you’ll want to watch which will tell you if and when you’ve arrived at your goal.

Investing in land with the proper knowledge, strategy and plan can be one of the smartest, exciting and lucrative decisions you’ve ever made. If you can partner with someone experienced in the realm, there could perhaps even be additional benefits.
