Investing in Alberta’s Agricultural Land
For Chinese investors who are Canadian citizens or hold permanent resident status in Canada, investing in Alberta land assets provide a secure and profitable asset that is surprisingly low maintenance. Many Chinese investors have flooded British Columbia’s agricultural land markets for years, particularly in cities like Richmond, and even in other provinces like Saskatchewan, raising the costs significantly in these jurisdictions.
Why do wealthy investors want Canadian agricultural land?
- Diversification from residential real estate and stocks
- Stability of asset
- Predictable cash-on-cash returns
- Steady long term asset appreciation
- Significantly undervalued compared to global agricultural land
As for investment returns there are 2 ways to make money on a piece of farmland; capital appreciation and income. Capital appreciation means if the value of the land goes up then the investor can sell it for a profit. Income from a farm will either be from cash rent, or crop share. Cash rent is calculated by dollars per cultivated acre.
Secure Investments. Alberta farmland is a stable, secure investment. After all, the land is only becoming more valuable over the years, and it can’t be stolen. Investing in Alberta agriculture land provides financial gains, and through Hansen Land’s ability to rent the asset to reliable local farmers, investors do not need to actively manage or farm the land themselves.
