The History of Columbus Georgia

It’s not often that a city is planned in advance of its founding, unless you’re Columbus, Georgia of course!

The town was founded in 1828 by an act of the Georgia Legislature, and served as a trading post to promote commerce within the area. Situated at the start of Chattahoochee River’s navigable portion and on the final stretch of Federal Road, before entering Alabama, provided Columbus with an ideal location.

Named after Christopher Columbus, the city profited from its location on the river as it acted as a connection to the rest of the world. Often, ships with cotton crops would make their way to the international markets in New Orleans and eventually to Liverpool, England.

What do you say to your clients when they are Fearful of the future.

I had the pleasure of visiting with Larry Kendall, author of Ninja Selling, while attending the Leading RE Conference in Las Vegas.

I get more questions on this topic than any others. About 90-95% of all the property I sell is in this program with the County Assessor. These programs are very popular because they reduce the amount of Property or ad valorem taxes on your property. I reached out to my good friend Lauren Harbin, Chief Assessor with Talbot County GA for some information. PLEASE REMEMBER CONSERVATION USE VALUATION IS DIFFERENT THAN A CONSERVATION EASEMENT. The Conservation Use Valuation is a 10 year program with the County Assessor. A Conservation easement is deeded to a Land Trust and runs for perpetuity (that is forever!).

Conservation Use Assessment is a favorable tax treatment covenant designed to protect qualified property owners from being pressured by the…
