Buying Land

A Great Opportunity and Success

Coach Bobby Bowden

Last Thursday, I attended the LANDTHINK Summit 2010 along with a few of my colleagues from AlaLandCo and land industry professionals from all over the country.  The goal of the Summit was to bring together professionals from different aspects of the land industry.  There were land brokers, investors, land lenders, foresters, consultants, surveyors, and other professionals there.  We had a number of speakers on topics ranging from financing land purchases to real estate trends to timber prices.  It was a great opportunity and a great success.  My hats off to the folks at LANDTHINK for organizing and hosting the event.

The keynote speaker was former Florida State University coach Bobby Bowden.  He presented a great motivational message on some of the aspects of successful leadership.  If you ever have the opportunity to hear Coach Bowden speak, take advantage.

LANDTHINK is a great resource for information about land-related issues.  It is a platform with contributors from many aspects of the land industry.  I, along with Jonathan Goode contribute there regularly.  The founder of, (which is one of the most successful Internet land listing sites) Ryan Folk, started as a way to provide information to a public that is eager to learn about land.  The readership has grown tremendously and the information available there has as well.  I encourage anyone interested in land to subscribe to LANDTHINK.

There was a great deal of valuable information presented during the Summit and some of it will be made available.  As it becomes available, I will be directing you to some of it.  There was a great deal of insight into the market that should be interesting to all.
