Isn’t limited income potential a bad thing? We don’t think so, and here is why:
When purchasing properties/acres that include known income streams, the purchaser is paying for both these income streams and the inherent recreational value of the land. To justify the higher purchase price, the new landowner is then forced to pursue those income streams (i.e., cut down their trees, practice industrialized farming, etc.) to offset the original acquisition price overtime.
In contrast, when purchasing properties/acres that are in perpetual conservation, the new landowner feels no financial pressure to pursue those traditional income streams because their acquisition price was not based on those types of values. That leaves significantly more time for doing the one thing they originally purchased the property for: enjoying it!
