New York, NY, United States, 2006/11/02 - American Acres, Inc. announced today that its 11-month-old website, OwnaPieceOfAmerica.com, was named "Site of the Day" on November 1 by SomeOneWhoCares.org and on November 2nd by FamilyFirst.com.
The website, Ownapieceofamerica.com, offers Free Land in any state in the USA to all Internet visitors - small yes, one square inch parcels, but free nonetheless. The website is both a fun, educational site as well as a gift site in which visitors can upgrade from simply owning property with their names listed on the site, to purchasing attractive Deeds inscribed with their names, individually numbered, and framed or mounted on a plaque.
The free land being distributed is a part of American Acres vast land holdings in each state - land purchased one acre at a time, state by state, by the New York City based company. The project has taken well over 10 years to put together by President Scott Moger. A “no action” letter was issue by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as well as the Attorney General of New York State stating that the deeds are to be sold as novelty items and not as investments. In fact, there is a long list of “Covenants and Restrictions” on the OwnAPieceofAmerica.com website and visitors should take heed.
Both the individual State Deed and the 50 State Deed (the "Deed to the United States") entitle bearers to ownership in the form of a quit claim deed with each parcel being approximately one-square inch or a 6,272,640th undivided interest in each one acre property.
As indicated on the website “Owners won't have to pay taxes of any kind...ever, and will not be required to mow, pick up trash, or comply with any local, state or federal regulations.” But buyer beware, “these ‘mini estates’ can't be built on, lived on or retired on. Owners cannot make any improvements or develop the parcels. Owners shall not occupy the parcels and must grant rights of ingress and egress over their parcel.”
Ownership of the one-square inch "parcels” in the "Own a Piece of America" program is available only at OwnAPieceofAmerica.com, and each parcel is certified by individually numbered Deeds registered with American Acres, Inc. in owner’s name and will be listed in the “Landholder’s Property Registration Roll” on the website.
The exact location of the land is indicated on the individual State Pages or Property Location Guide to all 50 States to which purchasers will have access once they are a registered owner.
Deeds will be sold on the website for as little as $3.95 and can be received immediately via email…in case you forgot to shop for a present for someone important, to a little more decorative version imprinted with their name and parcel numbers and framed or mounted on a plaque.
The Own a Piece of America website has previously been named “Cool Site of the Day” (March 2006) as well as on KGBT-TV’s (Texas) website also as “Site of the Day” earlier in 2006.
E-Max Ventures, a division of E-Max, Inc. owns and operations the website as well as favoritefreebies.com, veryclevergifts.com, and ownapieceofamerica.us.
