Buying 60+ acres...good investment? Aloha! I am looking to purchase a 60 acre lot for around 100K. The land is leased to a farmer for around $50 an acre right now, with about 50 acres being tillable. Obviously, the land is pretty rural, about 15 minutes to the nearest town, but overall in a nice location close to a lake and on a paved road. My question...(obviously highly speculative in nature) I am 30 right now and will "retire" from my job in 12 years. Would I be better off buying the land now, or investing the $1,000 per month that the land would cost me (15 year land contract at 6%) in a mutual fund/stocks. I have always wanted a small hobby farm, and it is in the location I would like to settle down in. I just don't want land to triple in price in the next 12 years. My job has me in Hawaii right now, so I will not start improvements until I retire.
