Without a great deal of funding it’s always been considered difficult to buy land as an investment. Development is so restricted in the UK, that when we do obtain planning, the difference in the land value is often immense. So, understandably, it’s perceived to be next to impossible to acquire land for investment without capital.
Well, I’m here to dispel the myth. It is actually possible to acquire “control” of land for very little capital… if any!
As regular readers of my blog will be aware, I encourage anyone seeking substantial income to explore a broader, more rounded approach to property. It’s an approach I’ve adopted personally and which delivers a regular, life-changing income, allowing me to experience true financial freedom.
How to generate profits from a plot of land without buying or owning it
Land trading is the most effective method I’ve found to generate quick FIVE and SIX FIGURE PROFITS. It’s also relatively easy, requiring minimum time and effort. Once you know how to go about it, trading in development land is actually a very simple process.
In fact, it’s so simple that even a novice can put together two or three deals a year to generate exceptional profits, fitting the ‘work’ around their existing commitments. Best of all, it can be done part-time, with hardly any capital or previous experience. Strangely enough, you don’t even have to buy or own any land…
So how can you control land without purchase or ownership?
With the use of a little-known gem called an Option Agreement. In fact, an Option Agreement can enable you to control land for just one pound. And crucially, while you have “control” of that land, you can increase its value by 200 times or more by obtaining planning permission to develop it.
Land finding is actually a great opportunity. It’s the ideal way to generate income for anyone that’s willing to learn the ropes – just like becoming a buy-to-let landlord. If you’re willing to put in the effort and learn the methods of sourcing and appraising, it offers significant rewards.
We’re not talking rewards that pay £150 per month “positive cash flow”. No. We’re talking rewards that can clear your mortgage in one fell swoop.
For the more experienced, the rewards can be huge. However, I always advise people to start small – perhaps look for single plots and work your way to bigger deals as your confidence and knowledge grows.
My ideal sites have been those up to two acres in size. Sites like these are often overlooked by developers especially if they have existing buildings or uses that make them less obvious. You will also find that there are deals-a-plenty right on very own your doorstep. It’s just a question of knowing where to look…
I recently made £300k profit on a site near my home in Bolton in just 9 months. I have lots of others I could mention and I will give full details in time. Deals like barn conversions that made £375,000 profit, a pub that made £70,000 profit, an old church that made £125,000 profit or an old haulage depot that made £350,000 profit…
Basically, my point is this: You don’t need to be a billionaire to invest in land: with land finding you can make life changing profits without investing vast sums of money!
