Purchasing Land

WHY PURCHASE LAND

“Buy on the fringe and wait. Buy land near a growing city! Buy real estate when other people want to sell. Hold what you buy!” –John Jacob Astor

What makes land so enticing to those looking to increase their wealth?

Purchasing land has historically been a path to wealth, and it still is today. An investment in real estate is more stable and less volatile than the stock market.

Land is a Limited Asset

We see the basic economic law of supply and demand at work. The amount of land available (the supply) is fixed, but the number of people who want that land (the demand) is growing. Land around the major urban centers, in particular, has been in high demand since the end of World War II.

Real Estate Values Grow Over Time

Compared to stocks and bonds, land or real estate offers a more secure investment. Studies indicate that even as the economy goes up and down, real estate tends to increase in value overall.

Ownership Expenses are Minimal

Land is easy to maintain—unlike a rental or income property, there are no maintenance costs, no worrying about finding good renters, no dealing with property management companies. Beyond the purchase price, your only ownership cost is annual property taxes (which are significantly less compared to the taxes on the average home).

  • California is a leader in many industries, from technology to entertainment to manufacturing to agriculture to international trade

Why Purchase Land in Antelope Valley

Antelope Valley developed rapidly during the last half of the 20th century—mainly due to its proximity to Los Angeles. As Los Angeles grew, attracting millions of people, housing prices soared and many Angelenos looked for affordable homes for their families that were still close to the urban center. One place they found those affordable homes was Antelope Valley.
Antelope Valley is in the path of population growth and presents a unique opportunity to those who have vision and patience.
The median home price in Los Angeles is around $600,000, while the median price in Antelope Valley is only $290,000.

What To Know About Purchasing & Owning Subdivided Parcels

Our parcels are “pre-developed,” meaning we have started the development process. We added value to our large tracts of land by subdividing them into separate, fee simple parcels that can be purchased individually.
Graded easement roads provide legal access to each individual parcel in each subdivision, and those can be used in the future to bring utilities. Adding utilities is the next step in the development process.
There is always an element of risk when investing, but we have reduced your risk by offering parcels within a subdivision. Your individual parcel is part of a larger development plan. Utility companies may be enticed to service a subdivision with hundreds of potential new customers, but it would be a costly challenge to get service for a single parcel.
This is why we sell within subdivisions: they offer a cost-effective option for owners to add utilities as a group. You will be able to share the cost of adding utilities with all the other owners in the subdivision—which may further increase the property values.

Adding Utilities

After subdividing the land, adding utilities is the next step. As an owner of one of these parcels, you will get to work with other owners and share the cost of adding utilities. Here’s what that process looks like:
  • Two of our tracts have been annexed to the Mojave Public Utility District (MPUD), which saw the potential of serving hundreds of new customers.
  • When these subdivisions have been sold out, the owners may decide to vote to bring in utilities.
  • With a two-third majority approval vote, the owners may petition MPUD to issue a municipal bond to raise money to bring utilities to the subdivision.
  • MPUD brings utilities, adding value to the land—at that time, individual owners may apply for building permits if they wish.
  • The owners are responsible for paying back the cost of bringing utilities over a long-term basis through tax assessments.
