Although we have 365 days a year to make any sort of declaration of intent towards life changing decisions, the vast majority of us tend to procrastinate until the end of the year. Around the world, at midnight on January 1st (in their respective time zones of course), everyone will be writing down their intentions and New Year’s Resolutions. Most will have something to do with losing weight or saving money, but they all have one thing in common: the hope of making a brighter future for ourselves and our loved ones.
Housing Market Stability
In the past few years the housing and land buying markets have finally seen a flicker of light at the end of the tunnel and Georgia is no exception. There has been a steady rise in appreciation rates ever since the turn of the century and doesn’t show any signs of stopping anytime soon. What this means is that if you purchase a home or land in Georgia now as your New Year’s Resolution for 2018, by the same time the following year it could be worth even more than what you originally paid for it. That’s what we like to call a sound investment.
Land Over Bricks and Mortar
Once you’ve made the decision to invest in property in the New Year, the next choice you will have to make is whether to go with a pre-built property or undeveloped land. Most people don’t have the time, patience, or energy to invest in taking on a building project, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. However, if you’re not in any rush to build right away, buying land is the way to go. Not only are you able to develop the land just how you want it, you can also take the time you need to build as you go. That large investment will soon enough either become your dream home or your favorite place to go hunting when the season is right. Either way, it’s yours and yours alone to do with as you see fit.
As we mentioned above, choosing land over an already developed piece of property will allow your imagination to run wild. Depending on zoning, you can do whatever you want with your land, whenever you want. With all the pristine land available in the Northern Georgia area, the possibilities are endless. Let your creative mind take over and stand out in the sunshine one day on your brand new plot of land and just imagine all the things you could do out there.
Even if losing weight and getting rid of credit card debt are still your go-to choices for a New Year’s Resolution, let our land experts help guide you towards adding a resolution that will last a lifetime.
