Don’t make these 5 mistakes Continued on page 4 As buyers go through all the steps involved in buying a high-quality recreational property, it’s important to know what to do – and just as important, what not to do. At PotlatchDeltic, we are committed to making the purchase process as simple and painless as possible. Every step of the way, our goal is for you to buy the best property for your needs, whether you want to hunt, hike, camp, build a home, or just relax. With this in mind, here are five common mistakes that you should avoid: 1. Not thinking you can buy what you want within your budget. Always keep your end goal in mind: buying a property that will be a great fit for you and your family. As you set your budget, know that you get what you pay for. Understand that different properties carry different values. After all, what’s the use of paying a little less if the property isn’t right for you and you don’t use your new property regularly? As you begin the land buying process, you’ll find a lot of opportunities at every budget price point in the market. At PotlatchDeltic, we have great properties in current inventory from $40,000 and up – not much more than the cost of a new car. 2. Not thinking about how you will use the property. This will vary for each buyer, so create a list that is personal for you. It’s best to think about these things now, not after you buy. If hunting is your end goal, some examples of the kinds of questions to consider are: • How many people will be hunting on the property at a time? Or, how many animals do you expect to harvest each year? That could determine how many acres you should buy. • What do you want to hunt? The answer to that will help you choose location as well as property characteristics that match your wildlife preferences. Want to share your PotlatchDeltic experience with us?
