We have just rolled out a new website – PremiumUPProperties.com
This platform focuses on our unique and exclusive properties throughout the Upper Peninsula. The design allows us to feature some of our most outstanding properties with less limitations on the listing presentations. We have limited the inventory to the cream of the crop to make it easier to search for special properties of this sort. Many of these listings focus on waterfront properties and investment tracts, but we also have commercial opportunities, timberland, and special residential properties.
We have dedicated blog posts and a newsletter specifically for this category of properties. We encourage everyone to visit this new site and stay tuned for more as we will be adding to it. Please sign up for the newsletter to stay up to date on new additions to the site.

In July this year, new legislation was passed regarding the Qualified Forest Program (QF). This new legislation specifically address properties being transferred from the Commercial Forest Program (CF) to the QF program. As it pertains to land ownership, these programs provide options for tax benefits to land owners in Michigan. If you are a buyer in the market for a property, you should be aware of the available programs and their benefits. It is also important to inquire if a property is currently in one of these programs and understand the benefits and potential issues of each.
Many private land owners will wish to remove a property that is in the Commercial Forest Program as that program allows public access. Recent changes to the Qualified Forest program cover the process of transfering a property from CF to QF.
