Invest in What is Important to You via 1031 

1031 investors not only have latitude, but an intriguing menu from which to choose not only here in Asheville, but across the USA via the 1031 Exchange Plan. So the question becoAsheville area waterfall on acreagemes: What really matters to you? Convenience? Room for growing? A place to save for your grandchildren- a land legacy? An outstanding natural area? 

Several years ago, an eco-minded 1031 investortraded her beachfront resort condo with its cumbersome property management woes, for the relative freedom of a land purchase. It may be half an hour in to downtown Asheville, but the "convenience factor" of  low maintenance is important to her. A fifty-plus (50+) acre tract with incredible natural features, this mountain beauty demands only that she remember to bring a picnic basket, "set-a-spell" by its waterfall... (see photo)

 1031 and Room for growing
She can see her children and grandchildren and even generations to follow hiking up to the knoll to see the sunset, staying to camp out with her under the stars - or there may be plans to build a small home....  

A place to save for your grandchildren- 1031 or land legacy
his land-gem could qualify as an "outstanding natural area." To watch over it for generations to come, this eco-savvy investor could create a private land trust with protective covenants.  Now she would be looking at additional tax advantages.  

An outstanding natural area
Acreage must qualify as an "outstanding natural area," under the U.S Department of Interior's Land Management program.  It must have particular features and natural character:

It must either provide habitat for rare or endangered species of plants or animals, or have scenic or other features of scientific or educational value. And should it turn out that our 1031 green investor chooses to build there in the future, a conservation restriction she can impose at the time of purchase, customized to the needs of both the buyer and the land, will allow for  limited construction under strict guidelines that protect the property's natural assets.

Hi janeAnne~ What a beautiful legacy to leave for generations to come! As you have said, we aren't producing any more land on this planet. It is at a premium. I can see why a 1031 exchange would be a wonderful way to incorporate something lasting into your family's heritage!

Have a lovely weekend...
