Sales and Bargain Sales

Protecting land by selling it to CILTI.

Home > Landowner Resources > Sales and Bargain Sales

Landowners who want to protect their land and receive money for it can sell property to the Central Indiana Land Trust. If they sell the land for below-fair-market value – in what is known as a “bargain sale” – they receive cash and realize significant tax benefits. For more information about selling land to the Central Indiana Land Trust, contact Stephanie Paine Crossin at spainecrossin@conservingindiana.org or 317-445-5855.

Why Work with CILTI?

By donating or selling land to the Central Indiana Land Trust, or by creating a conservation easement, you get the peace of mind of knowing that the land will be protected now and into the future. Through any of these options, the Central Indiana Land Trust can assist in the conservation of forests, wetlands, prairie, wildlife habitats and farmland and protect the land’s natural integrity and scenic beauty. Once protection is in place, the Central Indiana Land Trust will provide management and monitoring to ensure that the lands remain in a natural state in perpetuity.
