Gut instinct is a sense that we all have the capacity to feel and become intimate with, and is an important “feeling” that some of the most brilliant real estate investors use and rely on, everyday, to finalize decisions about a deal being made. Over the years, real estate investment professionals have honed their personal sense of gut instincts that holds as a critical component in ability to make good deals.
If you’ve decided that tapping into the real estate market in the area of Central Idaho is a goal that interests you to a point that you feel obsessed with the concept of looking for property deals, you must develop your sense of gut feelings. There are always going to be deals that look good and some that do not look so good. But how do you really know? Get in touch with what YOUR OWN guts are saying, and sometimes that means going against the opinions of everyone around you, because your guts are telling you something different.
REVIEW ALL THE FACTS AND DATA RELATED TO THE REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT YOU ARE CONSIDERING
Certainly when you are evaluating property to buy, its important to review ALL of the facts and data to pull everything into perspective. But when doing a deal, your well developed gut instincts have the capacity to shed light on something that exposes a truth like nothing else can.
So, if you’ve never thought about your guts, and you have no idea how to feel the instinct of your gut reaction to a particular decision or a property that you have identified as a potential investment, start to focus on it. Make it a goal in your everyday life to develop your gut instincts.
Your gut instinct is a feeling you get that is very subtle. You might have reviewed everything you can, all the important details, and considered all the comments and opinions of friends and family and everything seems to point to a green light. You’ve dug a little deeper, done all of your homework, and even go back and you look at the property time and time again. You think of other questions to ask the real estate listing agent, almost becoming a pest because you’re obsessed. BUT, something inside you is making you stall. Even though everything seems so positive about the property, you can’t put your finger on it, but you just can’t quite pull the trigger. Thats your gut instinct talking you. There is a silent message that your gut is sending to your brain and is saying, “are you sure about this transaction”? Maybe you need to take another look.
IS THE TIMING RIGHT OR WRONG?
In cases where your instincts are telling you to pace yourself and not jump head first into a property, or you know you’re dragging your feet because something is still bothering you about the deal, your gut instincts are talking to you. Maybe the timing isn’t right, and the best scenario is going to be – wait it out. Of course, if you don’t have good gut instincts, you may lose an opportunity when you stall and someone else’s intent to purchase the same property, steps in front of you and snaps it up.
Perhaps the deal of the century has passed you by, because your gut said, wait, and now the property is in escrow with that other buyer. But your guts begin keeping you up at night, telling you that you’ve missing out on a fantastic opportunity, and it’s slipping away.
In those cases, you might decide, because of your gut instincts, to take a leap of faith. You listen to your guts and place a backup offer with your real estate agent. You’ve heard the current buyer might have financing problems and the deal drags on, and the seller is getting antsy. Your backup offer on the table is less than you would have originally negotiated. Financing is a piece of cake because you’re calling the shots on the deal if the current buyer fails to meet the terms of her contract. Your backup offer suddenly becomes the sellers only option and you end up getting the property for much less than you were going to offer in the beginning.
With gut instincts, you use your own decisions and feelings to either move forward, drop the deal, or even wait and often those subtle decisions that just seem right, can become the best transactions EVER!
DO YOU KNOW HOW TO CONNECT WITH YOUR GUTS?
Connecting with your gut is not easy, especially if you were not taught that way of thinking when you were a youngster. Perhaps your lessons in life relied on what “other people” said and so your habits developed to always listen to other people. Maybe you grew up in a household where thinking for yourself was not celebrated, and your parents dominated your decision making process so you never learned to develop the gut instincts. It’s never too late to change your habits, and to learn how to develop your gut instincts. There are so many resources available online today, to learn about anything that interests you, without spending a cent. Just go to google.com and type in: “How do you develop a gut instinct” and you’ll find scores of articles about how to do just that.
BE AWARE OF YOUR GUT INSTINCT AND DEVELOP THE AWARENESS OF HOW IT FEELS.
Focus on the way you making shopping decisions, or who you choose for friends and how you perceive trust in products, people or situations. Familiarize yourself with what YOU think, not what others think. When you tune into a particular decision, and you learn to trust your own opinions and thoughts, your guts will begin to tell you a story. If you just don’t feel it, pickup a book or an audio recording on the topic of gut instincts and begin tuning in. Don’t give up. Especially when you’re championing a real estate investment, of course its important not to ever ignore the facts and figures that are important in filtering properties that seem like great investments or not so great.
The most essential component in developing your sense of a gut feeling is to practice mental awareness that helps you to connect your gut to your brain.
When you trust your gut, you gain a strong sense of personal empowerment and levels of confidence that suddenly become one of your best tools when evaluating the basis for your future real estate investments.

LONG TERM INVESTMENTS IN IDAHO FARMLAND OFFER SOLID RETURNS
There are numerous investors willing to buy farmland in Idaho and throughout the Inland Northwest region. If a tract of land comes available on the market, investor coops or individual investors are digging deeper in their pockets to bid competitively, since farmland in Idaho has appreciated over time. So its no surprise that the shortage of Idaho farmland on the market has prompted a great deal of investor demand. In rare cases that farmland does appear on the market for sale, multiple offers create a bidding war, with the highest price winning the prize. According to a report produced by USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, agricultural land has appreciated throughout this year in the Northwest and California. Other industrial sources are supporting the August 5, 2016 USDA report, saying that the market conditions do show evidence of an extremely tight supply of farmland.
The reason for this shortage of farmland in Idaho can be attributed to a number of reasons. The biggest reason is that many of the institutional investors are running to farmland as a long term investment. These investors see farmland as the only alternative asset with real growth potential, especially when crops produce a return of anywhere from 6% to 9% annual income. That beats the rate of return on interest bearing savings, CDs, treasury bills and other financial interests. Pension funds and Hedge funds are also reporting an increased interest in Idaho farm investment. This allows them to diversify and take advantage of the business slump in the agriculture industry.
FOOD DEMANDS INCREASE AS EARTHS POPULATION INCREASES
Another reason why farmland is experiencing massive investments is that the investors believe that the food demand will rise as population increases in all parts of the world. This will be led to by increasing urbanization which is, in turn, resulting in reduced farming land, and therefore investors will flock to farmland.
Idaho real estate broker, RaWanda Goehring, says that there is a shortage of Idaho farmland that is leaving some of her clients wanting more and having to wait on the waiting list. “There is a shortage of inventory in our region of Central Idaho, and that is a fact that many investors are facing,” says Rawanda. As a real estate broker and agent, she says that many people are not aware of the fact that Idaho farmland is in low supply. This is because many of the farm owners in Idaho are sitting on farmland that is more valuable than what they thought. The current opportunities to satisfy the diversity of demands for farmland are very challenging and really becomes a waiting game.
AUTOMATIC LISTING NOTIFICATION KEEPS BUYERS AND INVESTORS ALERTED
According to RaWanda, when it comes to the high demand for farm and ranch land, she advises investors to sign up for Central Idaho Properties automatic listing notification. Buyers can register for an account, set their criteria for the type of property and the specific geographical areas they’re interested in, and whenever a new listing is entered by any member of the Lewis Clark Association of Realtors, the system sends an immediate alert to the email on file with a link to the listing for all details and photos. The response to the alerts can be immediate, whereas if she is out showing property or meeting with clients, her ability to review new listings can delay the shortlist of buyers. So the Automatic Listing Notification is an immediate digital service that works really well.
IDAHO CROPLAND VALUES BEAT USA AVERAGE
According to the report by USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, the average value of US cropland is $4090 which went down $40 from the previous year. However, Idaho average cropland value rose from $100 which is 3.1 percent to $3300. Ben Eborn, an economist at the University of Idaho Extension, said that the report showed just the first dip in the national land values. According to him, buyers had been paying more than they could generate from their farms in the previous years which he called the years of sky-high commodity prices. The economist still receives phone calls from investment firms and retirement funds inquiring about the economics of Idaho farmland. Some of the investors in Idaho have also been leasing the land back to the original owners or farmers who formerly owned the land to keep the land productive.
IDAHO FARM AND RANCH PROPERTY VALUES CONTINUE TO RISE
Idaho farm and ranch property have continued to rise in price, and the value has continued to strengthen. This is according to Doug Robinson the senior vice president of Western Idaho with Northwest Farm Credit Services. He also said that there is a decrease in the number of transactions on the property market place which means that the supply remains tight so far. Doug anticipates that Idaho farm and ranch property value will continue to be stable in the core growing areas. Some farmers in Idaho have also continued to see high sale prices of farms in the area. They have however managed to lower the rental agreements, and they are still anticipating negotiating the rest of the arrangements next season.
Some Idaho ranchers blame all the outside interests and investors for paying more than the land is worth. This skews the market and does not favor the farmers in any way. Some of them have been forced to reduce their herds because they can no longer be able to buy or even lease grazing land in the area.
Farmland in Idaho is still expected to keep increasing in value, but according to the farmers, it is not reflective of what the land can produce. There is a stiff competition of investors with the dairies that depend on the land to support their herds which are in turn keeping land value in Idaho high.
