Financing Options for Rural Land Purchases

For many buyers, getting financing for their recreational property purchase makes a lot of sense.

“Some buyers don’t want to tie up too much money in a property right away,” says Scott Garrett, CEO of Freedom Northwest Credit Union, which has provided financing for a number of PotlatchDeltic property buyers in Idaho. “And for many people, a loan on a recreational property can be a fairly simple process.”

Garrett, who leads a team that finances many rural land sales in Idaho, took some time to answer some questions that potential borrowers often have:

Q: Are there many options for financing a recreational property?
Garrett: There are lenders in many parts of the country who finance rural properties, and it’s important to work with a lender who understands this type of property. It’s different than financing a primary home. We lend on a wide variety of rural properties, knowing that it’s always important that a property have several things in place – clear access and a reputable appraisal.
Q: Will I have to put money down for a loan on a recreational property?
Garrett: We will certainly want to have money down to make a loan. The amount the borrower puts down often depends on the size of the loan. Many buyers will put 50 percent down, while 30 percent is considered a considerable down payment. For us, 20 percent is usually a starting place.
Q: What if you want to finance improvements to the property as part of the loan?
Garrett: There often can be ways to do that. As a hypothetical example, let’s say someone is getting an $80,000 property and they say they can put half down, $40,000. We may work it out where they keep $20,000 of that to put into improvements that will increase the value of the property.
Q: What kind of rate can I expect to pay?
Garrett: That will depend on the quality of your credit, and how much you put down.
Q: Is the loan process complicated for financing a recreational property?
Garrett: It’s not a complicated process. One thing that can help it go very smoothly is to get a letter of credit from a lender before you pick out a property. This ties into how it’s a good idea to talk to the lender before you get too far down the road on buying a property.
This can be very helpful. For example, you may think you need to pay something else off before you buy a property to help your credit situation, when it may be better to put that money into a down payment on the property.

The PotlatchDeltic Preferred Broker in your area can recommend quality lending options for you to consider as you start the process of getting your dream property.

Garrett and his team of lenders is ready to help PotlatchDeltic buyers in Idaho.  Interested buyers who want to get pre-financed can call Teresa Childs at Freedom Northwest Credit Union at 866-687-5228.

A Good Spot for Growing Big Bucks

Even a smaller property can be a good spot for growing big bucks.

When deer hunter Travis Paul bought a 27-acre property, he wasn’t going to let the relatively small size of the tract deter him from growing high-quality deer.

His story, told in a post on the North American Whitetail website, offers some ideas that will be helpful for any owner of a smaller tract who wants to maximize its potential as a hunting property. In five years, he grew the deer on the Iowa property to a point where he bagged a 15-pointer grossing 191.

Like any knowledgeable deer hunter, Travis knows that key attributes of a good hunting property involve making sure deer get food, water, safe areas for bedding, and ingress/egress routes.

So he put in food plots, planted grasses to help establish bedding areas and installed two watering holes for water sources. In his planning, he also covered many other important details, from thinking about scent control, to planning the best spots for deer stands, to taking steps to ensure that the food plots would last an entire season.

The experts in PotlatchDeltic’s Preferred Broker Network are an excellent resource both in buying your own recreational property, and in referring you to the best people to help you with such tasks as developing your property as a spot for growing quality deer. Call one today to get started!

Deer Season’s Over. Now what?

When deer season is over, it’s important to start thinking right away about next season. After all, don’t you want the coming year to be your best ever?

A recent Realtree blog post offers three tips for off-season activities that can play a key role in your preparations for the coming season. Here are the tips:

  1. Scout for deer just after the season ends, taking advantage of the opportunity to track all the activity from previous weeks and months.
  2. Put up your trail cameras to capture the movement patters of the deer you want to hunt.
  3. And take advantage of the opportunity to do some antler hunting.

Another great thing to do after deer season? Find a recreational property to buy near your favorite hunting areas, to give you a home base for the next deer season.

Contact one of the experts in PotlatchDeltic’s Preferred Broker Network, who can help you every step of the way, finding and buying the perfect property for you.

PotlatchDeltic Recreational Property States fare well as Outdoor Areas

Buyers of recreational property know that while it’s important to have things to do on your property, it’s also valuable to have great recreational opportunities nearby.

PotlatchDeltic is fortunate to sell recreational properties in some of the best outdoor states in the country, and that was reflected in a recent study by the MightyGoods.com website, which ranked all the nation’s states in the quality of their outdoors.

One state where PotlatchDeltic sells recreational properties made the top 10: Idaho was No. 3, behind No. 1 Wyoming and No. 2 Montana, and ahead of No. 4 Alaska and No. 5 North Dakota.

Idaho features a wealth of ways to enjoy the outdoors, from snow skiing, to hunting for deer and elk, to getting out on the state’s rivers to go rafting or fly fishing, just to name a few.

Here’s where PotlatchDeltic’s other recreational property states finished in the rankings: Arkansas was 18th, Minnesota was 20th, Mississippi was 29th, Alabama was 34th, and Louisiana was 43rd.

The ranking was done by using a number of measures that reflected the quality of the outdoors, along with how many residents experience the outdoors. The measures:

  • acreage of protected areas;
  • number of campgrounds, trails, bike shops, outdoor jobs, and running clubs per 10,000 people;
  • consumer spending on outdoor recreation;
  • air pollution;
  • outdoor participation rate among the population; and
  • physical inactivity rate.

If you’re interested in experiencing the outdoors and buying a recreational property in any of PotlatchDeltic’s states, contact one of our Preferred Brokers today.
