FAQ: Buying Land for Investment Purposes
We receive a number of frequently asked questions about land investments on a regular basis. For your convenience, we’ve taken the time to answer some of the most commonly asked questions below.
What Makes Land a Great Investment Choice?
There are many reasons to consider investing in land; for starters, consider the fact that land is only available in a finite supply. This means that there will always be value in land ownership. This, combined with a recent increase in land values all across Arkansas, makes now a great time to throw your hat into the ring of land investment regardless of whether you’re interested in re-selling right away or holding onto your investment for awhile.
Why Do I Need a Land Appraisal?
Before you purchase any piece of land for investment purposes, it’s important to have a professional land appraisal done. This is the best way to ensure that the value of the land you’re interested in is at least equivalent to the amount you’ve agreed to pay. If a land appraisal comes back low, for example, you may have a hard time obtaining financing. Any lender will require a land appraisal as a contingency of your loan approval.
What if I’m Interested in Timber Property?
Keep in mind that if you’re looking to buy timberland, there are some specific procedures that will need to be followed throughout the buying process. This includes having a specialized timber appraisal done so that the appraisal inventory can be broken down by individual tree species. This will give you a more accurate valuation on the land itself. At DDK Forestry & Real Estate, we offer both traditional land appraisals as well as specialized timberland appraisals to suit your needs.
