Most of us here in the great state of Texas dream about owning our own piece of land. While the thought of hundreds or thousands of acres would be amazing, I have to admit I feel beyond lucky with the half acre my wife and I live on currently. Just having a place to call our own is a big deal but it made me wonder who owns the most land in the entire country.

One thing I have learned in life is that real estate prices have just consistently increased since I was a kid.

Because it could be the best investment you ever make.
