The last two market reports that I have done this month have been Eagle, Idaho and The North End, downtown Boise, Idaho.  These happen to be the more pricey sides of the valley.  I happen to live in SW Boise, so out of my own curiosity I wanted to do a market report for my area of town.  The grap...

What is Your Motivation?  To Buy or Not to Buy. In my last post I spoke a little bit about if prices decline and if interest rates go up.Your buying power changes.  But what if interest rates stay the same and prices decline?  Well, you are going to have to think about what your motivation is for...

Why do agents and mortgage brokers keep babbling about interest rates being at an all time low?  Why does this matter?  After all, maybe we haven't hit bottom yet right? What if my house depreciates after I buy it? I want to time it RIGHT and only buy a great deal and buy it at the bottom of the ...

I have never considered myself to be a "salesperson."   I believe that one of my biggest virtues in real estate sales is honesty.  Over the course of the last few years I have told numerous buyers that their home may lose value, that I don't know if we have hit bottom yet and that it might not b...

In Boise, Meridian & Nampa, Idaho it is a "Nobody's Market"   It's funny - I saw a news report a few weeks ago on our local television advertising it being a "Buyers' Market" here in the Treasure Valley.  I thought that was funny, as about 75% of the offers I submitted this year proceeded into mu...

I know that a lot of agents put limits on how many homes they will show a buyer in a day or at all.  I, however, don't put a limit.  What I do is listen.  I walk around with all of my buyers and listen to what they are saying about the home as they walk through it.  I ask them questions based on ...

  I don't know why anybody who can qualify for a mortgage would rent right now. Well, okay, that's not ENTIRELY true: I understand if someone can't because their credit is less than perfect, and let's face it - getting a loan HAS gotten more difficult.  I also understand if people are unsure what...

Last week I compared the "North End" in Boise year over  year for homes sold and Median Sold prices. See that post here.  This week I wanted to compare Eagle, Idaho.  Eagle is a city on it's own in the Boise area, North West of Boise proper.  It is a popular place to live, and like North Boise t...

  Kodak "Printing on the Go" and Google Cloud Printing - Life Made Easier. I work with a lot of clients who are out of state and who travel regularly.  I like to take my occasional road trip too.  Sometimes we end up doing it at the same time.  When this happens we have to be creative with the te...

Okay, just for an hour.  But to be fair, the lady at the entrance said that it should only take us 20 minutes - 30 if we got lost.  Yet, we were able to spend an extra 30 minutes and in the end we cheated to get out.  We had to text for clues and then we did "cheat paths" (which in retrospect pr...
