New & Emerging Trends in Conservation Real Estate: What Every Real Estate Professional Needs to Know
Conservation real estate is a developing trend in ranch transactions, both locally in the Hill Country, and nationally. We present this program to you, as brokers and trusted advisors to buyers and sellers of rural real estate, in order to enhance your understanding of the opportunities and challenges created by this market shift. This round table discussion will examine some of the conservation real estate trends and tools that we are seeing today, including conservation easements, conservation development, bargain sales, mitigation banks, and sale of development rights. We will also discuss how these trends are expected to affect land values and the growth of the Hill Country economy for generations to come.
In addition to the overview described above, and in an attempt to make this the most informative and engaging discussion possible, we invite you to submit 5 questions or areas of interest that you would also like for the group to discuss. These can be inquiries you’ve received from buyers/sellers about specific conservation real estate matters, questions or concerns you’ve been contemplating about this new trend in the marketplace, or anything else that you think would stimulate an engaging discussion on this topic. Please send all questions and topics to Erica Fick by July 22nd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please click RSVP to reserve your spot. We hope to see you there and are excited to offer this regionally relevant topic.
