Protect Your Land
As tourism and population skyrocket in Florida, land is becoming more valuable than ever. Through conservation easements, landowners who choose to preserve the beauty and function of their land will profit from the increased value. These easements also serve to alleviate worries of future estate taxes that may force the landowner’s heir to sell the land versus keeping it in the family.
When choosing to sell conservation easements, the landowner retains ownership of the property and is compensated for the easement. On the other side, the government receives assurance that the valuable land will be protected from future development.
Today, not only is the number of conservation easements being bought by the federal, state, and local governments growing, but the demand from conservation organizations is too.
Selling your land as a Florida conservation easement is recommended to real estate clients when the property has qualified features, meets guidelines, and the landowner desires a way to keep the property from major development for generations to come.
