Why Land Investment > THE BENEFITS OF LAND PURCHASE
As an exhaustible resource, well-located and zoned building land is widely considered the most reliable and profitable investment a person can make. Land unerringly increases in value. Looking back as far back as the turn of the 19th century, the average price of land over each 10 year period never showed significant decreases in value, not even in during recession.
"Land is a good investment, because, quite simply, they ain't making any more of it"
In a few years, a flood of American retirees will enter the market seeking a place in the sun, most without sufficient means for a million dollar villa by the sea. Huge demand will be created for smaller, more affordable building plots not too far from the sea and the beach. There are over 100 million baby boomers scheduled to retire from 2011 and onwards and some estimates indicate that up to 10% will seek a home outside of the the USA. These baby boomers will seek:a great climate

A question we are often asked: "Why not invest in an existing building instead of land?" During an upswing in development, development land appreciates faster than buildings. Land shortages drive values up, according to property experts. In other words, well-located building plots have the potential to appreciate much faster than developed properties.
Combine well located development land with the added benefit of valuable teak growing on your lot and you may just have "the perfect investment"
Investing in Costa Rican land for sale is a logical place to put your money. Donald Trump, for example, made his millions by what is called land banking – the process of buying and holding land for future sale or development.
COSTA RICAN BUILDING LAND
The price of land in Costa Rica is still highly undervalued in comparison to countries like Mexico. There is enormous upward potential. Costa Rican building plots are scarce, especially in the coastal regions, with over 30% of Costa Rica's land surface declared as a nature reserve or park. Costa Rica plans to be carbon neutral as a nation by 2021 and to achieve this goal more land will need to be zoned "undevelopable" and more trees planted. This will push prices of existing development land upwards.
