Agriculture: The Smartest Way To Invest In Real Estate. by hotmas911(m): 9:03pm On Nov 10, 2014
My headache with real estate investment has always been the number of years it takes to get back all my invested money. My favourite investment plan is Real estate because its one of the the most secure form of investment plans. The normal practice of most people is to buy a piece of land keep it for a certain period of time to resell at a higher price. I have done that too and believe me I have made killer profits in some deals. But like Oliver Twist, I always want more. There must be better ways to invest in real estate. For some, all they know is to buy a piece of land and develop it to be rented out, sold through mortgage or other seemingly profitable means.

When it comes to real estate the basic rule is location, location and location. The general belief is to focus on prime locations but the best way is to find a way to bring out the best out of a 'dung hill' kind of locations. Thank God I found my own "dung hill" location in the villages. I will be sharing on these thread things and factors that motivated me to snub investment in urban land and focus all my resources in rural land. Remember the advice not to put all your eggs in one basket? Well, the opposite is what i have been doing. Presently i have acquired over 800 hectares (that is about 2000 acres) and i am still working towards acquiring more.

Why am I doing this? Why am I bullish on villages and bearish on cities? The reason is my discoveries in AGRICULTURE! Abi which other real estate investment can one put like 5 or 10 million naira on and be making above invested sum as ROI on quarterly to yearly basis?
Stay tuned!

Morning guys.
Yes! Why am I bullish on village lands? The first reason is my discovery through history that no nation can experience economic and industrial growth without first paying attention to develop its agricultural sector. In fact, I came to conclusion that agricultural growth is the foundation for economic and industrial development. USA, China, Brazil, Canada, Germany etc are all top agricultural countries.
To be continued... Time to go to farm

Good morning guys.
Let me see how much I can quickly type.
As we can all see, the country is already working hard on transforming the agric sector and with that I see we are on track. Now the question is, what is the most important factor of production in agriculture? The answer I got is what brought about my paradigm shift. LAND is the most important factor in agriculture. Other factors like labour, capital can be maneuvered but not land. Are you going to plant in the cloud? As in cloud computing? No. Agriculture needs land.
After much findings, I also discovered I'm not the only one thinking this way. In fact it shocked me that non africans from Europe, Asia, south and north America are already buying up farmlands all over africa. I read a report that farmlands as big as the size of France in total have been bought in East Africa.

Here in Nigeria, I also discovered some class of people have been buying hundreds and thousands of hectares of farmlands like never before. I didn't waste anytime in joining that class when I saw how I can be adding values to the land and be making above 100% return on investment.

At the begining of the thread I wrote that the smartest way to make high profit in real estate is to find a 'dung hill' kind of place and add value to it. But its something one seldome finds. How many of those deal are available? And even if you are lucky to find one, be sure you are not the only one gunning for it. I will be sharing how any one can invest a sum in real estate through agriculture and be making up to and even above 100% ROI yearly from such investments.

Are you ready?

It's beautiful morning here in Ogbomoso. The first idea is think on these 2 ideas. You can actually buy a plot of land in some just developing areas in places like Ikorodu for around 800k and you can use that same sum to buy 10 acres of land in a place like Ogbomoso. If you decide to develop your Ikorodu land, how much will it cost you to have it ready in a rentable condition? Another question you need to consider is how much rent are you likely to get per annum? After considering those questions, now consider your 10 acres farmland.
You decide to develop it with a crop like PLANTAIN. From my own findings and experience you can develop the whole 10 acres with plantain with less 3million naira. On an acre using spacing of 7*7 feet you will have 8,890 plantain trees and that is a potential 8,890 plantain bunches. But let's peg the harvest at 70% of the 8890 and that will give us 6223 bunches that can be sold up to N1,200 per bunch. Let's use N800 per bunch and we will have N4,978,400 as income from the first year. In your first year, you make back both the cost of land and still made profit plus the 10 acres still yours! You now have an investment with a capacity to yearly put above N3m in your pocket. Is this not too good to be true?
Before I continue, try and compare the 2 ideas of doing real estate and decide which is best for you. We still have many crops other than plantain to discuss. but lets give room for discussions and questions.
Note: some farmers use spacing of 2*2.5 metres and that will give you 2000 plantain trees per hectare.
I'll be right back.

If i am to lease the land and maybe plant cassava and plaintain/banana, would i be trained and what is the cost of the training. Would you charge management fees to manage the farm afterwards. Are there other fees, please outline them.

Do you mean we can have 8,200 plantain trees on an acre or on the whole 10 acres?
Re: Agriculture: The Smartest Way To Invest In Real Estate. by Ephiezy4real(m): 10:18pm On Nov 15, 2014
And do you mean a banana tree produces just a bunch in a whole year?
Re: Agriculture: The Smartest Way To Invest In Real Estate. by Ephiezy4real(m): 10:23pm On Nov 15, 2014
Pls, can you tell us about palm oil to? can someone plant the two together in a farm? I mean banana and palm trees. Thanks

Planting planting and oil palm on same land is not something i will recommend. There are double bunches plantain but most commercial plantain farmers don't go for it.

morning sir, first I don't understand what you mean by 'you are on the money here'. Pls explain cos I don't want to misunderstand you. To start with my primary business is real estate. But its real estate with farming. As for the land, a little portion of it has been leased out. All the farm work we are doing now is for our clients who are not residents in Ogbomoso because of the nature of their job. We have a part we are selling. Most part of the land are Virgin. I have been involved in farming for about 2 decades now. In year 2000 I started poultry with a thousand layers pullets, though I lost the farm but the experience is a blessing. So any farm picture you see me on is for our clients. But come next year, we are starting our own with 200 acres.

thanks sir, na small boy I be. I meant you are very right in your analysis. Except when you said one may need up to 3million to develop 10acres plantain farm. It can be done with a lot less than that. I have about five acres of plantain farm in osun state. I need to expand come next year. that's why I was asking if your farm is a virgin land cos I know that's the best kind of land for farming.
