As investment options are shrinking, here's the best option for Better ROI (Return on Investment) is currently the Long-term investment options. One of them being the Invest in LANDS or PLOTS. The only reason to invest in PLOTS & LANDS is, in India Lands price is going higher than before, as the cities get crowded, its better to invest where the new Hubs are coming up. As Bangalore city is already crowded, one should be wise to invest in outskirt as the city expands itself, it will automatically increase the price of the PLOT or LAND you would buy today.
The piece of land or plot one buys today, after 10 years from now, this Land value will be much higher than today's buying price. As city will expand, Govt. will come up with new Road Maps and highways along the place, which will automatically double up your investment. As the days pass by the new offices and factories will be build to maintain the balance of the economy. In the end, the investment in land or plot will give you higher return on longer run than anyother investment.
Always keep in mind, Land Value will always grow more and price will be higher than before, so its spaces shrink, the asking rate will always go up. So it will be very intellectual to invest in Lands / Plots today for a better tomorrow.
STAY HOME, STAY SAFE.
