There is no doubt that land investment is one of the best financial decisions a person can make. Because not only is it a low maintenance investment that requires little to no effort, it is also very affordable and has the highest returns on investments.
But like everything else, before investing in land there are a few things to consider that will assist you in buying the best land. So, if you really want to invest in land, its best you read this article and note a few things so you don’t end up making mistakes that will cause you to lose money.
- Consider the surrounding of the land. Examine the neighborhood or community to know if it is a good or bad one. Is the area growing or declining? Find out if there are any houses, shopping malls, markets etc. near the land. Taking all these into consideration will help you purchase the best piece of land.
- Find out if the land has legal access. Can you legally get into the land without it being considered trespassing?
Endeavor to purchase only lands with legal access if not, selling it will be difficult and might even end up costing you money. Remember the whole idea behind land investment is to make more money not lose money, so take this very seriously.
- Consider the land size. Lands have a variety of sizes; it is important to know the size of land you want to purchase and what it can used for. Lands come in different sizes like plots, acres, hectares etc. all these sizes play a role in the price of the land as well.
- Why do you want to buy land? consider the purpose the land you purchase will serve. Explaining what you want to use the land for, be it for residential reasons, commercial reasons etc. makes it easier to know the type of the land to buy. And the decision-making process becomes easier and faster.
- Make sure to get the necessary documents needed for the land. If you purchase a land without getting the necessary documents to claim ownership, it is already a failed investment. There are documents needed in order for you to be able to claim complete ownership of a land.
So, the question here is, does the seller have the authority to sell that land to you? If he did, he would have and hand over every document concerning the land to you. If he doesn’t have these documents, then he has no business selling you that land and is most likely a conman trying to take your money.
So always make sure to ask for proof of ownership before making any transaction.
