Why Invest in Land?
There are plenty of reasons to invest in land, two of which are especially relevant today. Firstly, with stock markets being as unpredictable and quickly shifting as they have been recently, land is, in every sense, tangible, solid ground to walk on. Unlike other investments that exist only on paper and can be difficult to understand, you can see, visit, walk on, and put your land to use. Secondly, Alberta’s population is increasing, as is the demand for good land.
Shaky financial markets have increased interest in land investments that much more; with the stock markets and banking sector weakening, investors are recognizing tangible property and land as a wiser endeavour. Since there’s only so much land to go around, supply is limited—that means you can expect an accelerated appreciation in your investment’s value and a greater return on your investment overall. Buying land is also a hassle-free alternative to buying into the property market. With a lower initial cost and no further investment and building maintenance to worry about before a profitable return is a possibility, even an inexperienced investor can invest in land. Working with a land developer is straightforward and it’s easy to monitor the rise in property and land values.
From a strategic perspective, land will continue to be the most essential wealth creation asset. However, land investments have traditionally been investment vehicles solely for the wealthy. This was because investing in land required substantial amounts of capital. It was very unusual and extremely difficult for the common investor to seize the lucrative opportunity.

Why not simply “flip” land?
It’s true: you can make some profit by purchasing and flipping land, but by acquiring all of the necessary approvals and implementing essential services, the land developer can force the value of the land to increase. This means that the value of the land is less reliant on the market upswing and gives prospective buyers’ confidence in a significantly lower risk endeavour than real estate.
