Donald Trump and Howard Hughes are just two investors that have made billions in this area. In fact, many of the world?s wealthiest investors have become rich by investing in land plots for sale, which are rural, commercial and developable.

In case planning permission is granted by local councils investors could reap returns of up to 10 times there original investments but even otherwise undeveloped land, tends to increase historically in price anyway over the longer term with increase in acute shortage of housing in UK.
