to Make Money from Raw Land Investment Ideas
by: Shashank Srivastava
Conventional wisdom says that land investment is usually a long-term
investment that requires patience and many years of waiting
before one can reap substantial profits. The Land Institute,
Inc has dispelled this long held notion and is demonstrating
to the average investor that raw land investment can reap substantial
rewards in the short term…..if you know how to.
The land investment experts at The Land Institute(TLI)
have demonstrated through its courses that they can buy and
sell a piece of raw land within 60 days for a profit. They do
this through a 5-step process, which are as follows:
1. Locate the land
2. Evaluate the land’s market value
3. Take control of the land
4. Subdivide the land into smaller parcels
5. Sell it quickly for a profit
Raw land investment is an excellent investment
vehicle because 70% of the country is covered with vacant land.
With so much land available, there is abundant opportunity for
everyone to make some money.
of the best land investment opportunities are not advertised
in the media and can be found by simply driving along the countryside,
outside the city and looking for a ‘land for sale’
According to the land investment experts at
TLI, one of the ways to look for a motivated seller is to look
for landowners who are not locals. Very often, people who are
not local do not have the time to manage and maintain their
land. They also often become frustrated when dealing with the
local county. An easy way to look for a non-local landowner
is to visit the courthouse and check the records there. Once
the landowners have been identified, the next step is to contact
them by phone or mail to check if they are interested to sell
To succeed in raw land investment, it is important
to network and build a team of support associates over time.
It is important not to do everything yourself. This is where
delegation and outsourcing becomes an essential part of managing
the deal. As an investor, one will need people who can support
us in diverse areas such as finance, law, sales, marketing,
sellers face difficulty selling their land quickly as they do
not know how to package their land in such a way that it is
useful to potential buyers. At TLI, students are taught how
to purchase land at a bargain and add value to the land before
selling it for a huge profit. They are also taught how to look
for motivated sellers and deal with potential problems related
to zoning, bad contractors and county approvals.
Market Investment Ideas Or Gambling? What Is The Difference
by: Amy Goodmann
The art of speculating in one form or another has been around
When it comes to speculating, there are always
three things that you can be sure of – there will be always
people willing to speculate, there will always be people who
will love to play the game with the first group. Lastly history
can be counted on to repeat itself.
Sure the object of speculation may change, the
rules may change and the technology may change. But in the end
it is always the same.
However what has happened before is 100 %sure
to happen again. You can count on it. Everyone thinks always
that they are so original when it always the same story again
and again. Whether it is tulip bulbs, precious metals, mutual
funds, lottery tickets or penny stocks human nature is human
Ignorance, greed, fear and hope determine how
people react and thus how prices move and markets behave. People
have speculated on everything at one time or another,
For the last hindered years and certainly into
the foreseeable future speculating on stock prices offers liquidity
combined with legitimacy and purpose. Stock speculation, trading
and investing have become an essential and vital parts of both
our economy and our lives.
Trading is just another word for speculating
and investing is nothing more than speculating, except that
it supposedly encompasses a longer time horizon and for some
odd reason implies less risk. Speculators speculate, trader’s
trade and investors invest to make money. Traders buy stock
or any other object of speculation because they anticipate a
Speculation and gambling are similar, with a
few important distinctions. One difference is the perception,
sometimes true, that successful speculators profit due to their
skill or an unseen advantage, while gamblers prosper due to
chance or luck.
though that it may not happen to you but in the end given enough
time or chances the odds will always prevail. The casinos in
Atlantic City and Las Vegas were not built with winner’s
Another distinction is that gambling in most
forms has been illegal (at least until government got involved
and changed the rules in their favor) while speculation plays
an essential role in our markets and thus our economy.
These important distinctions make speculating
which indeed is what our investment industry purveys as an accepted
occupation – indeed one with one prestige and gamblers
not being accepted in the same light.
Whether a gambler, a trader or a speculator,
in all cases the attraction is the same – the chance to
make a lot of money in a hurry. It is the immediate gratification
of the win that makes these games irresistible - an opiate of
Indeed problem gamblers have been compared to
alcoholics in needing that rush which gives them such pleasure
and serves amazingly to release endorphins to relax their troubled
On top of that the unpredictability of the wins
serves to even reinforce this addictive behavior.
Not far off of the methods of B.F. Skinner and
the rats of operant conditioning fame.

Plans: The Best Investment Ideas
by: Robert Thatcher
Some people thought that owning a house is the
best big investment they could ever have. In fact, according
to the recent survey conducted in the U.S., 90% of the primary
wealth of the people. They never knew that there is something
more than what the house can offer — the house plans.
What people never knew is that house plans are
the better investment.
Why? It is because the foundation, the structure,
and the beauty of a house depend on the creation and assumption
of house plans.
Therefore, it is important to spend some time
contemplating on making and analyzing house plans. If ever the
plan was not made in such a way that it would provided the optimum
protection for the family, then that is not an investment after
Hence, it is extremely important to pay close
attention to the house plan. Factors that are to be considered
when making house plans should be well taken into account. Here
are five things to consider when making house plans:
making house plans, it is important to contemplate first on
the location of the lot where the house will be built. Is it
near the schools? The market? Or is it located in an area where
transportation's are scarce?
The point here is that it is important to consider
the location when creating house plans. The design and structure
of the house should match the kind of environment the neighborhood
Do you prefer to live in the city, or the quiet
suburban subdivision living? You definitely do not want to dig
yourself a debt hole just to build a new house that conflict
with your lifestyle.
When creating house plans, it is also important
to consider the lifestyle. The total impression that the house
will have on its visitors should greatly reflect the kind of
lifestyle the family has.
3. Size of the family
Many houses now are so small because developers
have to take into consideration the paying capacity of the buyers.
However, if ever you have the budget and the
time to supervise the building of your new house, it is important
to consider first the size of your family. For instance, the
number of your children will indicate the number of rooms that
you have to consider on your plan.
It is extremely important to consider the kind
of environment the neighborhood has in creating house plans.
For instance, if the area seems to be a hot spot, it is best
to include some plans on proper insulation of the house so as
to conserve energy consumption.
There are also cases wherein the type of soil
is also important in making a house. Therefore, it is best to
try to consider the kind of soil the lot area has when making
house plans. What good will the designs be if the foundation
of the house is literally weak?
5. Law and the government
There are cases wherein certain laws apply when
building a particular house. These are known as the zoning laws.
Therefore, it is best to consider them when making house plans
because there are some laws that limits the height of the house
to be built or the percentage of the allowed portion that the
house will occupy in a given lot area.
bottom line here is that the overall foundation and stability
of a house is greatly dependent on the proper creation and execution
of house plans. No wonder why it is considered by the others
as the bigger investment.
