Sell Your Land to Fund Your Mission Trips

This time of year, many people are making plans to participate in summer missionary and humanitarian efforts. With the weather warming up in many parts of the country, so is the zeal for volunteerism and good will to be administered in our country and, even, in the most remote parts of the world. Even, entire families are now preparing to pack up and store away their normal, everyday lives for unseen adventures and new memories. With that in mind, there is essentially one important thing that all of these people have considered before officially setting off into the sunset. And, that is, that it takes money to set off on monumental journeys like these.
To generate cash for volunteer trips, some have been able to rely on their loved ones to fund their endeavors. Others have worked hard and saved, beforehand. And, still, others have put together yard sales and estate sales; many have sold their cars or plan to rent out—or, even, sell—their homes. However, one of the few ideas that have been considered to increase cash flow is the profit that can be made from selling raw land.
Raw land is unused, undeveloped land. You may own raw land; but, you may have never used it and you may not plan to ever use it. However, it is your responsibility to maintain it and pay the property taxes on it—even, while you’re away. Chances are that, in your absence, it can become overgrown and sprout penalties from the city or state for negligence against policies to maintain it. Perhaps, you don’t know of anyone who you trust will care for it while you’re gone.
You might consider that one of the options that would suit this situation perfectly would be to sell your land to a private land investor. A good private land investor, like Lucas Properties LLC, would pay you anywhere from 5% to 25% of the fair market value of your land and would pay you cash for it within seven days’ time. If you’re concerned about having to come out of pocket for liens that you owe on the land or property taxes that are due or closing costs to pay, you don’t have to be. That’s because, another benefit of selling your land to a private land investor is that all of these things will be paid in full on your behalf. You would owe nothing—you would only get paid.
This is, both, a convenient and profitable measure to take if you’re still in need of money and, too, if you plan to be away for an extended period of time. The fewer things that you would have to attend to, of the life that you’re leaving behind, the better your missionary experience will be. And, too, the more cash that you have on hand when you’re miles away from home, the better. Think these things over diligently. And may you thoroughly enjoy the experiences ahead of you.
