HABLO ESPANOL UN POQUITO!
WHY OWN LAND?
1. There is a limited supply: No more is being made (except perhaps via volcanic lava flow in Hawaii!)
2. It cannot burn down, receive graffiti, no renter problems, little maintenance, low taxes. "No Tenants, No Toilets, No Termites"
3. It can be shown on your financial statement, any payments you are making will not show on your credit report or count against you for any loan application.It’s true this vacant land for sale by owner (abbreviated "fsbo") is low priced. But don’t think of it as cheap land. It’s usable land to buy now to help secure your future. It’s different than the “land for cheap” offered by others that is “out in the middle of nowhere”. You are dealing with an individual fsbo, not some land sale company. You could do an MLS online search to find an MLS listing. You could talk to your favorite realtor. You will find their land prices are higher, the transaction costs are higher, and they won't accept "no money down".
4. Land is the perfect inflation hedge, your equity builds quickly, the increase in value over time is not a taxable event.
5. Most people do not own real estate, especially So Calif real estate.
6. It can be sold upon your retirement, it can't be raided, confiscated by the government in the name of some "crisis", or misinvested like corporate retirement plans.
7. It reduces your future dependence on Social Security.
8. Humans have a primal urge to control territory, land is always in demand.
9. Land represents a start toward financial independence.
10. Each piece of land is unique, and has only one owner.
11. Land will make you feel and actually be more secure. Your bank can't unilaterally decide to take a percentage of it "crisis". There is no income tax event until you sell it. And well
selected land will build equity somewhat faster than 0.10% annually.
12. Whether you own one land parcel or many, long term economic forces (population growth, need for more housing, inflation, and the natural desire of each person to improve their own financial position) will be working in your favor.
13. People who own real estate have more confidence than people who don't own real estate. Land is today's "money in the bank", a phrase that no longer means what it once meant.
14. Years from now most people will have spent $100-$200 a month or more for entertainment and have nothing to show for it, but if you invest in land now you'll have a piece of property free and clear.
15. Own real estate. It will empower and build on your past, make progress for the present, and provide hope for the future.
Don't risk bidding at land auctions where you have no idea who you are bidding against, or even if there really is someone else bidding. Here, what you see is what you get. You don't want to "buy cheap land", you want to buy good land cheap! Ask me for the aerial photo link, and for maps, to any of these parcels and see that you CAN own usable land, that will hold its value and appreciate over time.
Feel free to write or call any time, I would be glad to hear from you.
or call Mike at 818-240-7391
HOW BIG IS AN ACRE OF LAND?
There are 43,560 square feet in one acre of land. The "action" part of a college or pro football field is about an acre. (Makes a person appreciate all the more how much land you actually get with a 2.5- or 5-acre parcel!) The following parcels would all contain one acre of land:
660 feet long by 66 feet wide; or
330 feet long by 132 feet wide; or
264 feet long by 165 feet wide: or
a square parcel with 208.71 feet on each side
Feel free to email me if you have area-related questions regarding acres or square feet.
LAND BUYER'S LAMENT
I do not want to make a list Of all the bargain land I've missed.
Good parcels that were in my grip- I watched them through my fingers slip:
The acreage that I should have bought Was lost because I over thought...
And while I thought things over twice Another grabbed it at the price.
It seems I always hesitate, Then make up my mind much too late.
A very cautious one am I And that is why I never buy...
A corner here, two acres there, Compounding values year by year,
I chose to think and as I thought, They bought the land I should have bought.
Last night I had a fearful dream I know I wakened with a scream:
Some men approached me in my bed- For trinkets on the barrel head
(In dollar bills worth twenty-four And nothing less and nothing more)
They'd sell Manhattan Isle to me, The most I'd go was twenty-three
Those men scowled: "Not on a bet!" And sold to Peter Minuit.
At times a tear drop drowns my eye For land I could, but did not, buy:
And now life's saddest words I pen ... "If only I had owned it then!"
Farm and Land Realtor Magazine
If You Want It, Get It Real estate is not quite a commodity.By that I mean you can’t go to the store and get another one any time you want. Each piece of property is unique. It can be available for weeks or months, and then one day it is gone.During the time it is available, and remains available, it’s human nature to think it will always be available. Then one day, someone buys it, and suddenly it is no longer available.Like the country musician Roy Clark might have said, you can’t do it again. You might get something similar, but once it has been sold, for all practical purposes it is gone.If you see it, and if you want it, then you should get it... while you still can.
