Investment Advice: Buy Low. Sell High.

Land investments made during down markets are the ones that make BIG money during better economic times.  Any good businessman will tell you the secret to making money with investments is to “Buy Low and Sell High.”  Indeed I spent time with a customer today who made that very statement while we were looking at some timberland for sale in Chilton County Alabama.  He liked what he saw and agreed that now is certainly a time to “Buy Low.”  Like many people that I work with, he was looking for a property that would make a good investment, that he can hunt on as well.  Has there been a better time in recent memory to buy investment property?  Can you see the potential to invest in land in today’s economy, and secure a portion of your financial future?  Don’t you think it’s time to buy low, so that you can sell high one day?  Another tip any good businessman will tell you…”The money is made in the buying.”  Think about it.

I have hand-selected three properties below that I think will make excellent investment properties.  Each of these have a different aspect in mind.  One will make an excellent timberland investment property, and offer the opportunity to hunt as well.  Another is currently chok-full of merchantable pine just waiting to be harvested, and in an area with an excellent turkey population.  The other is close to I-65 with good access back to Birmingham and has potential to be divided in the future.
