Protect Your Land and Earn Income through Conservation Easements in Florida
Ask if Your Land Qualifies as a Conservation Easement
As tourism and population skyrocket in Florida, land is becoming more valuable than ever. Through conservation easements, landowners choose to preserve the beauty and function of their land. 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 development rights through conservation easements, the landowner retains ownership of the property and is compensated. On the other side, the government receives assurance that the valuable land will continue to be managed by the landowner.
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 as well.
Selling your development rights through 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.
