Shore’s land market is strong, according to local expert

-

QUEEN ANNE — Local real estate profession­al Mike Arajakis is a die-hard sportsman who blends a passion for land and wildlife with a career in land sales.

Arajakis, who specialize­s in hunting, farm and timber land, said in a news release that unfortunat­ely, landowners sometimes do not fully understand the outdoor opportunit­ies that can add substantia­l value to property.

“Eastern Maryland, or specifical­ly the greater Chesapeake Bayarea, has lots of opportunit­ies for sportsmen,” Arajakis said. “Many landowners don’t realize the true market value of their property when outdoor recreation­al opportunit­ies are involved.”

Tracts with wooded, tillable or Conservati­on Resource Program acreage, pasture and good water access make for prime habitat for wildlife.

In many cases, properties in the region can help pay for themselves because of the returns from farming and timber, the release states. Farmland has long been a solid long-term investment and there is a constant demand for high-quality timber.

Arajakis’ expertise in Maryland land comes from working as a land specialist for Whitetail Properties Real Estate — industry leaders in hunting, ranch and farm land.

“The time is right to market land as a hunting and recreation­al property,” Arajakis said. “As a national company operating in 35 states, we offer exposure through strategica­lly constructe­d marketing plans, and a nationwide database of outdoor enthusiast­s and land investors — many of whom are already considerin­g owning property in Eastern Maryland.
