Land Lines- Week 7

Land Lines – Week 7

The Utah Farm Bureau released their ‘2015 Issues to Watch For’, we have included the link in the Headliners section. The list includes:

  • State Concerns: Regulatory Burdens, Water Issues, Transportation, Property Rights and the outcome of the State Fair.
  • National Concerns: Agriculture Labor, Budget/Taxes and the Waters of the United States.

If you or someone you know has been on the fence about selling their land, spring is a great time to start the process, marketing and selling a raw or papered land deal correctly takes time and experience. If you would like to schedule a meeting to discuss selling your property now or in the future please call. I look forward to speaking with you.
