For decades, land has been one of the most stable investments when compared to other types of investments. Great wealth has been built on the ownership of commodity-producing land for generations because land tends to hold its value through tough times and rebounds quickly when market conditions improve. Savvy investors see land as a hedge against inflation and with historically low interest rates have made it cheaper to purchase. According to a new survey published by The Land Report, more people are investing in undeveloped land and sowing the seeds of the United States’ economic recovery while protecting America’s greatest resource, the land. Data shows the private holdings of the top landowners have grown nearly 20 percent over the last five years.
Land is a nonperishable commodity that has performed well through decades of good and bad times and is “a great place to invest for the future”.
