What is a land speculator?

A land speculator buys a large amount of land for a small amount of money (usually because the land is undeveloped) and has no intention of using the land, but then sells it with a larger amount of monty to many people. . . . the goal is for the speculator to profit from this transaction. He/she is the person who has to pay the least for a parcel of land because he/she doesn't know what it's future is - therefore, speculating on a future use and value. On the other hand, if one knows what use the parcel can be put to and that it will generate income, he/she could be an "investor".
