Getting a better land buying experience…revealed!

We get questions about the recreational, hunting and timberland properties we sell all the time, and one of the most popular questions is: Are there advantages to working with a real estate professional during my land search, and in particular, a Potlatch broker?

The simple answer?   Yes.

Over the last few posts, we’ve told you why working with a broker, in general, and a Potlatch Preferred Broker, specifically can help improve your buying experience…

#5 – Working with a Potlatch Broker early in the process will save you time, and will make your search easier.

#4 – A Potlatch Broker will know the ins and outs of recreational property purchases.

#3 – Understanding the timber part of a purchase is important and requires special skills and experience.

#2 – A recreational broker understands the market.

And, now, the final benefit to working with a Potlatch Broker…


#1 – Using a Potlatch Broker costs the buyer nothing.

The fees related to a Potlatch Broker’s time selling Potlatch property is covered by the company. Potlatch only sells property through its Preferred Broker Network, meaning that these extremely attractive properties in Minnesota, Arkansas, Wisconsin and Idaho are only available through our brokers.
