What is a good shelter for property?
First, please excuse me for asking a property related rather than house-related question. So many readers of this site are experts that I thought it would be a good place to ask questions.Could you help me with this?
We have sold all of our property now (thankfully) except for our (debt-free)home and an inexpensive (under 100K) timber tract which won't be ready for harvest for another 20 years. It's for our retirement. We have a son approaching college age. He's eligible for top schools regarding grades and test scores, but we don't have the income for it in this new economy. His 529 college fund was eaten by the stock market dump. We've run the numbers for financial college aid and we keep tripping over this investment, it boost our assets on paper and reduces aid incredibly. My gut feeling is that this property should be inside some kind of shelter, but what? We need professional help but from whom? What direction should we be steering toward? What questions should we ask? What holding vehicle, etc. should we investigate? Thanks for your help.
