“Everybody wants a little piece of land,” wrote John Steinbeck, and it’s mostly true. Many people dream of having a piece of rural property where they can get away from technology and the hustle and bustle of life, connect with nature and relax. In the real estate world, this type of property is called recreational land, and there’s plenty of recreational land for sale. Recreational land is not wholly intended for full- time living or for profit; its purpose is for enjoyment. Now more than ever, people are not only dreaming of a retreat where they can have fun, relax and connect with the rhythms of nature, but they are also making it happen. Hunting is one of the most popular uses for recreational land, though most often hunters will use their recreational land for more than hunting. Other uses for recreational land include fishing, camping, ATV riding, motor biking, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, birding, festivals, retreats and more. Recreational land can still be profitable. Some owners make a profit from the land by sharing it with others and charging a fee, while others gradually improve the land and resell it later for profit. Some people buy recreational land for a family legacy. If you’re looking for recreational land for sale, consider it an investment in yourself and your family.
What type of flora, fauna, typography, climate and location will best suit my recreational needs? Is distance to the convenience of a nearby town or city a factor in my decision? What is the travel time to the recreational land? Are there any zoning restrictions that impact the uses of the property? How will my activities impact the neighbors, or how will my neighbors’ activities impact my enjoyment of the land? Our land specialist agents can help you answer these questions for any recreational land for sale.
