What is Recreational Land Used for?
Recreational land is land that is used primarily for activities such as hunting, hiking, ATV-ing, camping and more. The value of the land is measured by the quality of time you can spend enjoying the land.
The benefits to owning recreational land are endless. You can enjoy a wide-variety of activities with family and friends, you can lease part of the land to a farmer or hunter, or just allow public to access it for different activities for a fee. The choice is yours.
Since recreational land is different from other types of properties, there are some important things to consider when purchasing a piece of land. Our partners at Realtors Land Institute offer some advice to those seeking recreational property.
Look into all zoning regulations and restrictions. These can affect everything you want to do with the land, including hunting, building and much more. If you’re looking for hunting land, make sure the property has water sources, food plots and cover for animals to feel safe.
It’s also a good idea to check out the neighbors around the property. Good neighbors can enhance the overall value of the property. If you have bad neighbors (noisy for example), they can scare away wildlife or pollute the water with poor habits.
The best way to make sure you’re getting the most valuable land for your budget, contact a land expert to help guide you through the process.
