LandThink Pulse: Owning Land Adjoining a National Forest, Park, or Refuge Considered Advantageous
November 12, 2013
According to October’s results, an overwhelming 84.5% of respondents believe that owning land adjoining a national forest, park or wildlife refuge is a definite advantage. Owning property adjacent to state or federal land certainly has pros and cons. Advantages would include assurance that the land next door would not be sold to developers, and your view would remain the same as the day you purchased the property. If you’re a hunter, it could mean access to an abundant, managed wildlife population. For these reasons, the value of your property would likely increase, as buyers view these factors as intrinsic value. Some of the disadvantages might include future risk of condemnation, or eminent domain. Additionally, if a property dispute should ever arise, a landowner would be up against a bevy of real estate lawyers and cash. Depending on its use, state or federal land might experience high traffic, by both the park guests and employees.
Last month, the October Pulse asked: In your opinion, is owning land that adjoins a national forest, park or wildlife refuge an advantage or disadvantage? Our informal online survey revealed that 84.5% of our audience believed it was an Advantage, while just 15.6% said they thought owning land that adjoins a national forest, park or wildlife refuge was a Disadvantage.
It was the general consensus of the LandThink audience that owning land adjoining a national forest, park or wildlife refuge is beneficial. The pros outweigh the cons; essentially it would be like owning hundreds of acres in addition to your own land, offering solitude, plenty of wildlife, and unobstructed views.
