SO WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL VACANT RIVERFRONT LAND?
- You can build yourself a riverfront cottage overlooking the river.
- One of the simplest things to do with your property is to simply preserve it. It’s your land after all, and you have the right to protect it. You can designate an area to be free from hunting, camping, logging and even fishing.
- Have you heard about the tiny house movement? What was once a small hobbyist niche a decade ago has now exploded into an extremely popular lifestyle design choice while garnering a great deal of interest from the mainstream media and people from all walks of life.
- Recreation, You've got a property that is large enough to do four-wheeling, snowmobiling, dirt biking, mountain biking, paintball tournaments and other recreational activities. Alternatively, if you're looking for more of a laid back recreational use, you can simply take your family and friends out for an evening to eat and have a bonfire.
- Do you know how to live off the land? Use your land to teach kids and adults valuable life skills. It could be as simple as teaching individuals how to collect dry firewood, or as complex as building a small shelter entirely from natural resources. If you contact local Boy Scout or Girl Scout troops, you may also be able to offer your land to them for annual camping trips. Any kind of knowledge like that can be a valuable skill set to pass on to others, especially younger generations could be fair game. It could even be a profitable venture if you decide to charge a bit and run it regularly.
