Howard Hughes was, and Donald J. Trump still is, one of the richest men in the world, and they have one thing in common:
They bought land, in the right location and made fortunes from it!
You don’t need to be Rich to Get Started!
If you have never considered investing in land, you should do. It’s affordable and there are many specialist companies catering for inexperienced investors who have never invested before.
There’s no better low risk way to build long-term capital gains – as Donald Trump once said:
“I just love real estate. It’s tangible, it’s solid, and it’s beautiful.”
Howard Hughes was another who firmly believed in land investing as one of his high return investments, buying huge swathes of under developed land in California that came to be worth billions.
Where is the Best Place to Buy Land?
UK land offers an outstanding low risk, high return investment opportunity over the medium term. UK land has out performed most asset managers and asset classes – including investment trusts, unit trusts, equities and bonds.
Solid Long Term Gains
The facts speak for themselves:
Overall prices of farmland have increased by up to 30% in the last 12 months and 130% since the early 1990s with an average 920% growth in the last 20 years.
If you compounded a $50,000 investment, at last years average growth you would get a return of over $1.25 million dollars in just 12 years!
Of course, there’s no guarantee, but with the growth rates we’ve seen over the last 20 years such gains are possible.
The future supply and demand situation points to higher growth in UK land values for many years to come – here’s why:
· Population Growth – The UK is one of the most densely populated countries in Europe and its population is growing fast.
· Immigration – In terms of immigration, 170,000 people are entering the UK every year. This figure represents over 60% of the annual population growth. At current rates of growth, the UK can expect to see at least 3.4 million more inhabitants within the next 20 years.
· Social Trends – There is a rising divorce rate in the UK, and a declining marriage rate. This means there is a need for more homes as the family unit declines.
The UK government are already taking action to address the chronic shortage of housing, and are making house building a priority.
The Land Banking Opportunity
Land banking involves the acquisition of land, which does not enjoy planning consent, in advance of expanding urbanization.
The price of an open space plot, not immediately subject to urban development pressures can be bought cheaply. When urban expansion occurs the land rises in value as planning consent is granted.
This then allows investors to sell at a significant profit.
Get started with Just $10,000
Today, there are many companies advising international investors on how to profit from UK land.
They look at the best locations and give all the facts, so an investor can make an informed decision on whether to invest.
A typical minimum investment normally starts at just $10,000.
High Return Investments and Low Risk
High return investments with low risk don’t come around very often, but we feel land is such an opportunity.
If you are considering high return investments, then land is ideal for the longer-term investor seeking significant capital growth potential.
