In the case of a long-term investment, such as five years, after which you plan to sell it, you will need to consider the surrounding development with the perspective of your future buyer in mind.

There are many ways to use your land, no matter how small, to generate income instead of leaving it vacant.

Rent it to a farmer on a monthly or long-term basis to grow vegetables and fruits. It’s a win-win situation for both you and the farmer; your land, and their crop, both will benefit.

If your land is in a scenic spot by a river or lake, rent it out to picnickers who may want to pitch a tent and camp for a weekend.
