January 28: The farmhouses culture no longer remains exclusive to a certain premium category of people. Again, recent amendments in the Land reforms act, especially in Karnataka, have opened the window for all non-farming background individuals and institutions to own agricultural land. The reason why the concept of owning and investing in managed farmhouses has seen a rising trend in India in the last couple of years.
Another crucial factor for such a drastic transformation in the market for investments in managed farmlands is the ongoing pandemic. Covid protocols have redefined the whole working ecosystem. Work from home mechanism has become the new norm. The situation has taken a toll on the lifestyle and mindsets of people. The stress and fatigue of urban living and within a micro set-up without freedom for weekly getaways and travel is making things worse. The undesirable circumstances have made them realize the importance of owning a larger & eco-friendly conducive home.
Managed farmhouses or managed farmlands, as it is generally called in the real estate sector, are nothing but agricultural lands that are owned by institutions or individuals but cared for and handled by skilled people/agencies. The arrangement lowers the investor’s risk level as they lack knowledge of farming and its associated issues. Further, managed farmlands are more profitable than any other real estate asset classes or premium metal (gold/silver) investments. Also, the entry ticket size is small for the retail investor who is looking to diversify their investment portfolios. As an investor, you will encounter pretty low levels of market volatility.
Owning farmland not only let you stay close to nature and in a relaxed atmosphere beyond the city’s rush but also fulfils your aspirations of owning a farm. Moreover, investing in managed farmlands provides the new age investor with a passive wealth creation opportunity with huge growth potential. It’s a futuristic, secure, sustainable and rewarding way of having a weekend getaway always at bay.
