Owning land can be such a rewarding experience. Below are three reasons that everyone should want to own land one day. 

1. Recreation

 The number one reason to own land in my opinion is for recreation. There are endless benefits and opportunities to having your own place for outdoor recreation. Whether its hunting, fishing, biking, horseback riding, etc., the list is endless. Having your own piece of land allows you to get outside and enjoy what nature has to offer. 

2. Investment

Land is a great investment. Not only will the property itself appreciate over time, but there are also many ways to make money off the land while you own it. The number one way to accomplish this in Mississippi is by growing timber. Besides that there is farming, hunting leases, raising livestock, conservation easements, and even more ways to make a return on your investment, while still being able to enjoy it. 

3. Appreciation

Land is the ultimate limited resource. Mark Twain once said “buy land, they aren’t making any more of it.” When you own a piece of land you own something that is more and more valuable by the day due to more demand. As populations continue to grow and cities continue to expand, land will only continue to increase in value.


At White Oak Properties, we believe that land is the ultimate all around investment. Sure you can make money in other areas, but it's the only investment where you can make a return on your money and also get to enjoy the investment in the meantime. We love to be outside and the thought of owning land is the ultimate goal for us!
