It’s no secret that farmland values have been rising over the past few years – making farmland sales in Alberta a profitable investment. A Farmland Value Report, issued by Farm Credit Canada (FCC) back on April 16th 2012, clearly states that farm and ranch land value is on the rise in Alberta and across Canada. With a major grab of available raw land well under way in Alberta – opportunities to purchase this sought after commodity won’t be around forever.
With interest rates being historically low – and no sign of changing – along with a positive long-term outlook for agricultural producers, means there has never been a more stable time to purchase farmland in Southern Alberta. Rising population in Alberta due to well-paid job openings, lifestyle opportunities, and ongoing housing development, has increased the demand for food and therefore the need for crop and livestock production – creating a lucrative environment to own ranch and farmland in Alberta.
Agricultural opportunities in Alberta isn’t the only draw to this land of plenty – the prospect of land development due to continued urban sprawl, and strong interest from foreign financiers, has created what only can be referred to as a profitable prize. Purchasing land in Southern Alberta – whether it is for agricultural, land development or investment purposes – has become a global focus. Disappointing returns in some asset arenas has prompted the Finance and Private Sector to turn to land investment in Alberta as an opportunity to reap returns that have surpassed other investments.
