Making the most of land investments

Making the most of land investments

There is a saying that goes ‘90% of all millionaires became so through owning real estate.’ When done right, investing in real estate will always remain a tried and tested means for building your cash flow and wealth.

It’s no surprise that real estate has become one of the most popular investment choices. Along with apartments, plot investments have also gained traction as the preferred investment among High-Net-worth Individuals (HNIs). As the third-largest sector bringing about economic growth, the real estate industry is poised to flourish this year and experience around 5% capital value growth in the residential segment.

Is buying land a good investment?

With many new areas steadily being merged into Bangalore, the city offers investors many plotted developments in varying budget options. As a means of long-term investment, owning land is still one of the most trusted sources of wealth and asset creation due to the high returns and lower investment costs. This preference of homebuyers has led a number of established builders to secure land parcels for plotted developments across the country.

If you are looking at options that can fit your long-term investment objectives, then plot land investment offers the possibility of quicker monetization of an asset, says Piramal Finance Ltd.

Let’s explore the other top reasons why plotted developments in the form of gated community plots, residential lands or residential plots are the fastest-growing investment option:

Low Initial Investment: when compared to ready-to-move-in properties, investing in plots of land prove to be less expensive. The reason for the low price is due to the location of most sites being on the outskirts of the city. Even young investors can purchase them without incurring any financial burden.

Freedom To Make Your Own Space: you have all the flexibility of building a home of your choice, design and structure. If the plotted development is within a gated community, you also get access to the common facilities or luxury amenities. When you are in charge of the construction or project execution there will not be any additional costs or unnecessary delays.

Better Return on Land Investment: in the case of land investments, there is always greater appreciation in the land value if the location chosen is right. The value of already built properties can keep fluctuating based on various factors whereas the value of land will inevitably go up when the surrounding infrastructure is improving.

Easy to sell: selling a plotted development is much easier and garners higher value than a constructed residential property. Plot land is always in demand, this also assures speedier liquidation when compared to other assets.

Lesser Taxes: as per government rules, the tax levied on plotted development projects is less when compared to other kinds of residential properties.

Easy Handover: when you buy a plot of land, the handover is faster as compared to owning a property that is still under construction. Handover delay risks are minimal in the case of land investments.

A plot investment is no doubt a wise idea for securing your future. The security and profit that comes from it are much better than other short-term investment options. Before making your purchase, it is recommended to do a detailed research about the locality, its growth and the neighborhood.

Neem Grove at Brigade Orchards, a 7-acre residential project in Devanahalli on the Satellite Town Ring Road (STRR) is the first-ever premium plotted development in Bangalore by Brigade Group. The project offers diverse plot setups in sizes ranging from 1,086 square feet to 4,005 square feet. These plots are perfectly suitable for twin bungalows, row houses, and independent bungalows.
