If you’re looking for ways to diversify your investment portfolio, purchasing timberland can be an excellent option. Our agents can help you find timberland for sale in the Southeast and help you decide if investing in timberland is right for you. According to the Realtors Land Institute, timberland investment is a hedge against inflation, and it moves in a counter cycle to other assets, which lowers portfolio volatility and risk. Additionally, timberland can be sold or left to grow in volume depending on what is going on with the economy. Of course, it must be remembered that investment in timberland is a long-term prospect and requires the help of a land-management expert and forester to help protect the timber from fire, wind, insects and disease. After the timberland is purchased, it must be managed properly in order to produce valuable timber and, hopefully, managed with conservation practices in mind. Our team of agents can help you find timberland for sale in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
Perhaps the best characteristic of investing in timberland is that the land, unlike stocks, gold or other types of real estate investments, is a tangible asset that can be used and enjoyed while the timber grows and after it is harvested. When looking at timberland for sale, consider what other uses the land could support. Hunting, fishing, recreation, wildlife watching and rural living are just a few of the other options for enjoying the land.
