The land also has some distinct economic characteristics that influence its value as an investment:
- Scarcity: While the land isn’t considered rare, the total supply is fixed
- Improvements: Any additions or a change to the land or a building that
affects the property’s value is called an improvement. Improvements of a private nature (such as homes and fences) are referred to as improvements on the land. Improvements of a public nature (e.g., sidewalks and sewer systems) are called improvements to the land.
The permanence of investment: Once land is improved, the total capital and labor used to build the improvement represent a sizable fixed investment. Even though a building can be razed, improvements like drainage, electricity, water and sewer systems tend to be permanent because they can’t be removed (or replaced) economically.
Location or area preference. Location refers to people’s choices and tastes regarding a given area, based on factors like convenience, reputation, and history. Location is one of the most important economic characteristics of land (thus the saying, “location, location, location!”).

On average you can earn up to 20% return every month. The advantages of investing in real estate are numerous; some of them are owning an asset, getting a high return in a span of a short time, getting monthly income through rents, and solid worth for future use.
