Buying farmland can be a great investment opportunity for Canadians. There are many factors that make this true here a few of the basic ones:
- Farmland will always be worth something. Regardless of the fluctuations in the stock market or residential real estate, farmland will always retain some value because it is required for the most basic of human needs: food production.
- The supply of farmland is always decreasing as pressure from increasing populations lead to urban sprawl. Things go up in value when supply goes down.
- Farmland can be used to create real value for the owner either in the production of food or can generate income when rented to another farmer.
Increasing populations in North America create an increase in demand for food, but no new farmland is being made. In some areas of North America, land prices per acre doubled in less than 3 years. Canadian farmland is uniquely positioned to increase in value even more as climate change disrupts weather patterns and US producers are marginalized.
So it is clear that buying farmland can function both as a resource for your farm, but also an investment that will appreciate in value for years to come.
