Social Storm™ Properties
We represent ultra high net worth individuals and advise them on high quality land acquisitions across all four "plantation belts" across four southern states.. Besides marketing, we are known for our unique views of the investment aspects of recreational land and some of the top land investors in the county are our clients. This is a very specialized niche and a lot of wealth is created and stored here. While the recreational aspects is certainly important, making a good investment at the same time is equally, if not more important to our clients. What we found over our 27 year career is that some properties had certain features that regardless of the market conditions they were always in high demand, more liquid than others and got the quick attention of the most sophisticated of investors. These were properties that had safety, good water, semi-remote, held strong natural resources, great soil, great wildlife, and just somewhere you wanted to go to get away from it all. These places had other subliminal meaning. We say it reminds one of simpler times and a world of Andy Griffith, sitting on a porch and drinking a Cherry Coke. What we also found is that these certain properties were a natural hedge against both inflation and bad times. These are properties that investors gravitate to for safety in bad times and buy for a recreation reward in good times.
We picked up on it because we shared the same views and have such a property. We also have a very strong Biblical world view and recognize that there are many, many threats facing our world today. We are concerned about the same things ourselves. We began ranking and measuring these properties and found we could categorize them into an entirely separate asset class. We documented about ten unique traits they all shared. We call them Social Storm ™ Properties and trademarked it a couple of years ago and launched a new asset class.
As a combination of high quality recreational properties, agricultural properties, as well as hard asset storage abilities, these properties are perhaps the perfect land investment. If times are better, they go up in value along with the recreational markets and they stay in demand like the agricultural markets. Or if times are worse, they go much higher in value along with gold and other safe haven investments. It's for investors who don't like to own paper, gold, or other paper commodities, but fun to own, perhaps the greatest lifestyle investment.
There are many risks in the world today. We simply ask our clients if any of the many catastrophic things the government is fearing may happen happens where would they go? To their house in the Hamptons? To their beach house on Sea Island? How about their 500 acre farm in rural SW Georgia in a plantation belt with lakes, game, timber, farmland, livestock and a back to earth 1950's neighborhood? A place where the entire family has been before, perhaps holidays or hunting. A place where the manager is like family and can solve any problem. A place that is a simple drive within two gas tanks of the entire eastern seaboard. If one is a high net worth individual and they don't have a place like this in their investment portfolio, they are not hedging for their own families safety. In case of bad times, this single investment could well be worth their entire portfolio. It's owning hard timber, hard cropland, hard gold and water, the new oil. All of this along with a safe haven for friends and family. We call these Social Storm ™ Properties. They are perhaps the perfect real estate investment vehicle. We offer very discrete and confidential analysis of any property whether we have it listed or not. We set our clients up with discrete land managers and others who assist customizing a property to our clients own needs, concerns, or budgets.
If you are simply looking for a high quality recreational property why not choose one with they additional features such that it makes it a better and more liquid investment. Either way we are available to help.
Definition: A Social Storm™ Propertyis a property that exemplifies the self-sufficient, independent living that is the basis of freedoms that made this country great. These properties share all of the features of an "A" ranked, high quality recreational property, but with the additional benefits of wealth preservation, a financial hedge, and safe retreat in case any one of the things the government is warning us will happen happens... from ISIS, an EMP, Meteor, Greek style economic collapse, riots, martial law, etc. For those with a Biblical worldview and keeping up with current events, no more explanation is necessary. These properties have fertile soils, great water, privacy, great recreation, and raise hard assets such as timber, cattle, crops. It is an asset that one owns where, in the case of a bad event, the entire family meets with no questions asked. In good times, they are a great investment and recreational property. A key difference in most properties is that here, if the country's stability decreases, the value and demand for these properties increase. Thus, they have the benefits of two different asset classes; their high quality recreational values increase in good times and in bad times their Social Storm™ attributes causes their value to go up.
"If any one of the bad things that the government, news pundits, and Bible warns us about happens, where would your family go to be safe and comfortable? Your beach house in Sea Island? The house in the Hamptons? Most people snicker. Our clients are some of the wealthiest and smartest businesspeople in the world and all agree that hard times are on the horizon. It's remarkable how fast many forget why they work so hard...it's to provide for the future wealth and success of their families. It's remarkable, too, that a Social Storm™ property is also the perfect financial hedge, which is what most of our clients spend their time seeking! There are very few properties that fit this criteria. One would be well-advised to bring themselves up to speed."
