Land as an asset is unique as it offers both security and high returns to the investor. Yet, the common man shuns from systematically investing in land and instead prefers to stay with low return bank deposits or risk their hard earned money on dubious investment plans and companies.
This can be attributed to various factors.
- Not everyone owns land near Tier I and II cities which are the epicenters of fast development
- Lack of timely and credible information about government's future developmental plans
- Finding genuine sellers and buyers
- The skyrocketing prices of land
- Managing legal procedures and documentation
- Safeguarding physical land against encroachments
All these factors have kept land away from the investment portfolio of the common investors and they have to stay contented with investment in one or two properties, gold and silver, mutual funds, stocks and shares, term deposits, etc.
