Land Choices Launches

Here's an interesting new concept. The announcement of a new non-profit dedicated to increasing awareness of conservation issues nationwide, and of serving as a sort of MLS for properties being sold with conservation easements. The organization is called Land Choices. According to the website, the group's founder is Kirt Manecke. It says he was previously Executive Director for a Northern Michigan Land Trust. He's asking conservation groups to add a link to his site on their websites to help drive traffic.
The site has a page listing conservation land for sale. It's in the early stages, but it makes sense to promote these properties nationwide. It hadn't even dawned on me that there would be a need for a marketplace like this. But one key to marketing is knowing your market. What better way to sell conservation land, than to people with an interest in conservation. But just because the value has dropped because of the easements, it doesn't mean the property is cheap. Check out some of the listings. And if you're interested, make sure you've been saving up in the piggy bank for a while. It's a really interesting idea, I'll be intrigued to see how it goes. And in the spirit of helping spread the word, I've added the link on the blogroll.
