Investment Analysis For Land Banking And What To Look
Out For.

Understanding the use of fundamental and technical analysis when investing in land
banking for the long term gives you two valuable investment strategies you can use for
making profitable investment decisions.


As an investor looking out to evaluate an investment decision you should start with a
fundamental analysis of the land, the location, and the market in general. Location is Key
when it comes to Landbanking.


Another fundamental analysis you should look out for is
evaluating the company you are buying from, the title, and documentation.

We have written an article extensively on Land documentation in my previous article Important Document You Must Know Before Buying Real Estate do well to read it to get informed about proper Land documentation before buying an land In Nigeria.


Another fundamental analysis is comparing the current value of the land and
future price projections around the locations you choose to landbank in. Smart Investors
use this comparison to determine whether a long-term investment in a particular land for
land banking is worth it. E.g Oko Ado.Epe, Eleko.


On the other hand, the technical analysis aims to provide insight into the future activity
of the environment where the land is located. Investors using technical analysis feel
strongly that the future value in terms of equity or capital appreciation can be
determined by reviewing economic patterns based on past and current activities.

Reliable real estate companies can provide you with both analyses about land banking
opportunities that can help you with the right decisions before investing. Further more, you should pay attention to what land is being sold, the location, how it’s being sold, who is selling it, and what
the future looks like for that land in terms of equity appreciation.

Investments opportunities?
