Reasons To Invest In Farmland
- By 2050 the world population will grow to over 10 billion people.
- In addition to 3 billion more people, the middle class will grow at an unprecedented rate. An additional 3 billion people will enter the middle class causing food demand to sky rocket.
- Farmers will have to produce 70% more food by 2050.
- This will all have to be accomplished on less farmland. The U.S. alone loses almost 500,000 acres of farmland a year. That’s a loss of nearly 15,000,000 acres of farmland by 2050.
- The average U.S. farmers age is 58. As more and more farmers reach the retirement age a large portion of land will change hands supplying the market with a great opportunity to invest in farmland.
Farmland As An Investment
Investing in Farmland
- Farm returns have averaged more than 12% since the great depression.
- Farmland historically has been a great inflation hedge.
- Investors must realize that farmland is a long term investment. Return on an investment can vary from 12 months to 7 years before seeing your first return on investments.
- Farming is expensive. Historically this kept many investors out of the industry or limited to REITS that disconnect the investor from their investment.
- Many times, REITS offer low returns due to their buy and lease investment model. FarmFundr has changed this by offering for the first time direct investments into farmland at a fraction of the cost.
