NewsLand as a Secure and Trustable Investment Alternative
15 July 2009
In this current risky global investment, investors have started looking for more secured and crisis-resistant investment opportunities. Land investment is the answer. Land is the safest investment instrument compared to others, with almost no loss risk at all. Referring back to economic principles supply and demand, now is the right time to invest in land, especially in housing lots or houses in housing projects, due to the fact that many developers are not expanding aggressively in this situation of declining consumer buying power, they even offer extra discount to attract consumer purchase. As economic condition and consumer purchasing power have recovered, developer will execute aggressive expansion, which certainly will impact on raising property price significantly.
Entering the second semester this year, Central Bank interest rate has once again been lowered to 6.75%, influencing banks to plan on lowering the mortgage rate down. Lower mortgage rate accompanied with mortgage subsidy offered by developer will boost increasing demand of property. Increasing demand will certainly have an impact on land price growth. Therefore, now is the right time to invest on property, before demand is booming again.

Land price increases annually following the development of the area, making it the first choice of long term investment, specifically in the area of Jakarta and its surroundings covering Bekasi, Timur Cibubur, Bintaro, Serpong, and others. Slowly but sure, this investment will result on higher yield compared to saving deposits, gold, and beyond inflation rate. Land price movement is predicted around 10-20% annually, especially in strategic developing location with high potential to grow.
