For many people it can be difficult to imagine the potential of vacant land and the healthy returns which may be available from this type of investment.
While raw land can require a longer investment timeframe than some other real estate investments, it offers great opportunities for those who understand and are willing to take on the commitment. There are a variety of prospective uses for raw land, including:
If growth is expected in the area of the raw land, it could be parceled off and sold or leased to building contractors and investors. Or, investors could choose to develop the land themselves.
Investors may choose to lease mineral rights to mining companies or other investors.
Soft and hard woods can be planted, harvested, and sold for profit. Tracts of the land could also be leased to others such as timber companies.
Some other uses for raw land include:
When considering investing in raw land, investors should understand not only the process, but the rules set forth by the IRS regarding this type of investment.
