In today's society, many investors want something in their hands or possession for the hard-earned money they pay for the purchase. Land allows you to have such an investment. Instead of paper assets, like stocks and bonds, real estate allows buyers to go and dwell or enjoy their property knowing they now have a tangible asset in their portfolio.
This type of asset is one of the safest investment options available and brings another layer of security.
Investment Control & Value Appreciation
With an investment in land you know that you can do as much or as little as you want. A parcel of property will basically maintain itself. It will sit there and continue to appreciate in value. However, some owners may choose to invest more money into a piece of property to increase value by adding buildings and other improvements.
An investment in a land can be leveraged in many different ways to create advantageous outcomes. The great part is that you know exactly what is going on with your money and you are in control of how it is handled.
In contrast, there is little you can do as a single investor to improve the stock price of Apple if you hold a few thousand shares.
