Introduction to land development - An overlooked real estate opportunity

Know someone who would be interested in this event? Share it with them!

Interested to invest in real estate? Well, most real estate investors have two time-tested objectives in mind. It’s either:

  1. Purchase a property, hold it for a period then sell it for profit from price appreciation, or
  2. Purchase a property and rent it out for recurring passive income

However, there is a segment within real estate investing that most investors either overlook or has limited access to: Land banking

Land banking is a real estate investment strategy in which investors purchase large parcels of undeveloped land with the intention of holding it for a period of time, and then selling at a profit. The land is held until it has been approved for development, or future development beyond the approval date for rezoning.

To learn more about the hidden gem within this asset class, join us for an educational webinar with DLE Group AG (“DLE”). Since the launch of its first Land Banking fund in 2016, DLE has been the leading investment manager with a clear focus in Germany with over EUR 2B deployed.

We will be exploring topics such as: 

  1. Overview of German real estate
  2. What is Land banking?
  3. How does Land banking defer from typical real estate strategies?
  4. What is the typical lifecycle of a Land banking fund?
  5. Understanding the regulatory environment within German Land banking
  6. What are the key benefits and risks in a Land banking strategy?
