A new, smarter approach to investing.
Exceptional opportunities from a trusted consortium led and managed by OakWood
Ottawa Land Bank is a response to the growing concern many investors have about stock market volatility. While land and real estate investments have appeal, few want the hassles and risks associated with being a landlord. Fewer still are knowledgeable about the ins and outs of real estate investing…but want a different investment strategy. Is that you?

Ottawa Land Bank is the answer.
“Real estate cannot be lost or stolen…Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt, U.S. President
Ottawa Land Bank is managed by OakWood, one of Ottawa’s most established and trusted design and build contractors. We use a hand-picked team of well-known and highly respected advisors to find, assess, and develop real estate investment opportunities in Ottawa that are not readily available through any other means. Our team has expertise in real estate, law, infrastructure development, residential and commercial construction, and accounting. Advisors are used strategically depending on the type of land purchased and the property development strategy recommended for optimal returns.
Ottawa is one of the hottest markets in the country. Many real estate agents are reporting that almost half their sales involve bidding wars. According to the Ottawa Real Estate Board, the benchmark price for a single detached home jumped 8.5 percent year-over-year to $409,200 in February 2018. The benchmark price for a condo rose 5.6 percent year over year to $273,200. That jump in value is one of many indicators that make real estate a smart investment here.

Our strategy is to look for undervalued or underutilized real estate properties – like these:
Properties just outside the current city expansion area but will be absorbed in future expansion – (long-term investments)
Properties next to existing developments in key locations around the city – (short to long-term investments)
Properties that are zoned and ready for immediate development or construction – (immediate to short-term investments)
“The best investment on Earth is earth.”
