What’s offering the safest and in some instances largest return for investors nowdays?
That would be farmland. Persons investing in farmland over the last several years have for the most part managed to ride out the housing crash and turn a profit in the worst recession in thirty years. Investing in farmland requires you to either buy and work the land selling crops or buy farmland and lease it to someone who will pay you rent while they work the land to sell any crops for their own profit. Because of the world’s ever growing population and increasing demand for food farmland in and of itself has become a valuable commodity.
Better than silver or gold?
Well, look at it this way, we all have to eat! At least farmland continues to provide a tangible yield in the form of good food from Mother Earth. The ever changing agricultural market around the globe has caused some concern about farmland values in the future but land value has remained steady despite the shaky economy. Now more than ever farmland is an investment that buyers can continue to feel good about. Investing in farmland continues to be an investment in our future.
