Why Sell

Selling your land or long-term lease for a lump sum payment is a big decision. For the many landowners we work with, it is the right one, providing a more stable future and giving them greater control of their assets today.

Immediate Cash Payout

Reduce interest and inflation risk by receiving a cash payment now instead of waiting for annual/monthly royalty or rental payments over the remaining life of your wind or solar farm lease.  We are open to buying all or a portion of your land, rentals or royalties.

Reduce Your Income Taxes

Rental or royalty income is taxed at your ordinary income tax rate (currently up to 37%). By selling your land, rental or royalty income now, your proceeds can be treated as long-term capital gains and taxed at a current rate of 15-20%, based on income level. The transaction can be eligible for a 1031 tax-free exchange. You should consult your own tax, legal and accounting advisors before engaging in any transaction.

Reinvestment Opportunities

In addition to a 1031 eligible investment, you can diversify your investments into different asset classes, many with higher rates of return than your remaining solar or wind farm lease payments.

Simplify Estate Planning

Settling wills and estates can be a long and frustrating process for your heirs. Cash assets are easier to distribute. Cash distributions can easily be made during your lifetime, allowing loved ones to enjoy the benefits sooner rather than later.

Lease Cancellation, Site Decommissioning, Risk Mitigation

Your renewables lease gives the operator the right to shut down the project at any time and end your rental or royalty payments. Taking the lump sum cash payment up front eliminates that risk.
