BUYING LAND?

3 posts in this topic

AFTER THIS WEEKEND OF DEER HUNTING, I'VE CAME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THE LAND WE HUNT COULD USE SOME WORK. LIKE ALOT OF TREES!! THE LAND MY FAMILY HUNTS IS OWNED BY SOMEONE ELSE AND WE JUST MANAGE IT FOR HIM, BUT I HATE TO PUT MONEY IN FOR DEVELOPMENT IF I DONT OWN IT. I WOULD LOVE TO BUY IT BUT MY POCKET BOOK IS A LITTLE SHORT. BOTTOM LINE QUESTION, IS THERE ANY TYPE OF GOVERMENT HELP OR SPECIALIZED BROKERS THAT HELP OUT PEOPLE BUYING HUNTING LAND. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT.

Millertime,

There are brokers out there that can help. I'm a residential broker, but we don't really have many lenders that we work with that deal with land. I have seen some in the outdoor news. I'll see what I can some of my referal partners have. Another option would be a contract for deed. You wouldn't have to deal with approvals as its based more on your relationship with the owner.

If you have control over the land and just want to improve it start with your local Soil and Water Conservation District, there are lots of programs that may help

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
