Frequently Asked Questions

My retirement is years away, so why should I consider buying land now?

Over 80 million ” Baby Boomers” are getting older and thinking about retirement. Five million “boomers” turn 50 every year. As the bulk of them retire, it is predicted that they will drive real estate prices higher due to overwhelming demand. Many younger people are investing in land instead of the stock market. Quality land, in desirable areas near water, is appreciating at rates of 20-30% per year in the West. As Will Rogers once said, ” Find out where people are going….get there first….and buy land”.
