Things That May Make You Consider Selling a Piece of Land

There are several things that may make you, as a landowner, to consider selling off a piece of land.

One thing that may make you consider selling a piece of land is the realization, at that given point in time, that the land market in your area is actually undergoing a boom. The idea would be to sell the land off during the boom, rather than waiting for a ‘bust’ to take place, and possibly end up selling the land at a throw-away price.

Another thing that may make you consider selling a piece of land is the realization that you can get better returns by selling off the piece of land, and reinvesting the money in something else. This is where, for instance, you can sell the piece of land, and use the proceeds to develop another piece of land you happen to own elsewhere. This is also where you can sell the piece of land, and invest in some sort of business. In this regard, you can use the proceeds from the land sale to, say, buy some good vacuums for pet hair. You could also use the proceeds from the sale of the land to buy the model of the best cordless vacuum cleaner for carpet. Then you can resell the vacuums (or whatever else you buy), and end up getting better returns than you’d have gotten by continuing to hold onto the land for, say, speculative purposes.

Yet another thing that may make you consider selling off a piece of land is simple lack of money. This is where you run into financial troubles, and you realize that there is no point in continuing to hold onto the land, while you could sell it to get the money you need to finance your day to day living.

How to Reduce Land-Related Conflicts in Developing Countries

A considerable percentage of the conflicts that we see in many developing countries are land-related. That is where you have people fighting over land rights. The question therefore has to be asked, as to whether there is anything which can be done, to reduce such land-related conflicts. Thankfully, the answer to that question is in the affirmative: as, indeed, there is something which can be done to proactively reduce land-related conflicts in developing countries.

What needs to be done, to reduce land-related conflicts in developing countries, is to figure out ways of detaching people’s livelihoods from the land. If people are given other ways of earning livelihoods, without having to work on the land directly, then they are likely to be less inclined to engage in land-related conflicts. If, for instance, industries are established, people won’t have to depend on agriculture: which means that they will be able to stop being obsessed with access to land.

To get more insights on how to reduce conflicts in developing countries, you need to consider subscribing for public policy journals. Some of the journals in question are available free of charge: you just need to subscribe by submitting your email address. Even the free email addresses you use at sites such as the ATT email login page or at www.sbcglobal.net (that is, the Sbcglobal.net email login page) can be used for that purpose. More prestigious journals, such as the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy may, however, have slightly more rigorous subscription procedures.
