I get a lot of people looking for land or cabins both with acreage or on water.
"My friend tells me I should have..."
"Really?" I ask. "What are his reasons?"
"Well, I am not sure but he sounded like he know what he was talking about."
"OK, is he a person that hunts, fishes, hikes, camps or does some other outdoor activity?"
"No, he doesn't do any of that. Why do you ask?"
"I just want to know where he came up with his qualifications for what you want."
This is not a one time conversation, although not always the exact same, it is similar most of the time. How does someone who has never owned Recreational land know what you need to ride a 4 wheeler, or to hunt. The same kind of land is not good for deer hunting that is good for Pheasants or Ducks.
If you are a person who loves to fish, not all lakes are as good for Fishing and some are better than others for the type of fishing you do.
Here is a list of some things to consider when buying Recreational property...
What is the land being used for: Hunting Hiking ATV use Cross country skiing Snow Shoeing
How much land should you have to do these activities. Should you by land that abuts State land to maximize you enjoyment?
What kind of a cabin do you need: Should it be year round or just seasonal.
Do you prefer Lake shore: What is the main use of this property? Fishing Swimming Jet ski Skiing Canoeing
If fishing is your main enjoyment: What type of fish are you looking for. Are you a trophy Fisherman Do you want a clear lake or is bog stained better for the type of fish you are looking for
As you see, there are a lot of different things to consider and this is just a short list. So, Ask someone who knows and not the person who never sees the light of day.
