Abstract: U.S. land investment in the early years of the 21st century will be different from what we know today. After describing the basic elements of risk and related strategies present in land investment, the authors review recent history to see how land investment has changed over the past 10-15 years. Finally, they look ahead five to 10 years and predict which of today’s practices and patterns may change as well as the resulting affects on returns and investment strategies.
