Why You Should Consider Doing Land Banking

Land banking is a strategy whereby individuals or entities acquire and hold onto parcels of land with the intention of selling or developing them at a later date for a profit. There are several reasons why someone might consider engaging in land banking:

1. Investment Potential:

Land can increase in value over time, particularly if it's situated in an area where there is a growing need for development, like close to expanding cities or in areas receiving infrastructure upgrades.

2. Diversification:

Land can serve as a diversification tool within an investment portfolio. It often behaves differently from other asset classes like stocks or bonds, providing a hedge against market volatility.

3. Potential for Development:

Land banking enables investors to take advantage of development opportunities as they present themselves. Investors may profit from increasing real estate prices or zoning changes that make development more practicable by holding onto properties in advantageous locations.

4. Long-Term Wealth Building:

One long-term wealth-building tactic is land banking. Long-term land ownership entitles investors to both compound appreciation and possible revenue from leasing the land for uses such as agriculture, recreation, or other uses.

5. Control Over Future Use:

By owning land, investors have control over its future use and development. This can be advantageous for those who want to ensure that the land is used in a manner that aligns with their goals or vision.

6. Tax Benefits:

Depending on local tax laws, there may be tax benefits associated with owning land, such as property tax deductions or deferrals.

It's important to remember, though, that land banking has risks and difficulties as well. Land can have carrying costs, such as property taxes and maintenance fees, and it can be illiquid, making it difficult to sell or develop quickly.

In addition, market conditions, regulations, and economic downturns can all affect the value of land. 

Before engaging in land banking, as with any investment plan, careful analysis of the potential risks and rewards must be given due diligence.
