north idaho real estate for sale: Sandpoint Realty 'Monday Motivation' - May 16, 2022 - 05/14/22 03:09 PM
Sandpoint Realty Monday Motivation this week I am sure will have mixed reactions.
Goals set are meant to be reached.  Yet the path traveled to that goal is being seen as more and more important.   
This quote has me looking back on a bicycle ride from a few years ago.  Starting off on the 2nd day, after 100 miles the previous day, I was sore, tired and wondering if I had made a good choice in wanting to do this Rotary WaCanId 6 day ride.  In reaching a summit next to the Columbia River I was able to look back along the … (4 comments)

north idaho real estate for sale: Idaho Highway 95 - Entering 'Lightspeed' - 03/12/22 11:14 AM
Weather in North Idaho is easing up no doubt.  But that does not mean you don't keep your wits about you.  Some winter essentials in the car always a must.  Couple bottles of water, jacket, gloves, basic tools.  Be aware of your surroundings.
Driving North last night from Sandpoint Realty Office I felt as though I was on the 'Millennum Falcon' entering into lightspeed.  Only problem was I never hit lightspeed only that look and feel a second before going into lightspeed.

north idaho real estate for sale: Home Price Appreciation - Deceleration VS Stopping - 11/10/21 05:01 AM
When looking at home price appreciation it is important to be cognizant of the difference between 'deceleration' vs stopping. 
Much the same as driving a car.  Easing off the gas pedal does not mean you are stopping your forward progress.  You have merely slowed the pace at which you are traveling.  Many times saving having to slam on the brakes.
 
If home appreciation were to slow to around 10%, from the present 18% plus, year over year it would still be approximately twice the 25 year average of roughly 5%.  Even in a high performance car one can not keep the gas pedal … (8 comments)

north idaho real estate for sale: Flood of Foreclosures on the Horizon? NO - 11/04/21 07:14 AM
In North Idaho one can go to many different sources and research questions concerning the possible Flood of Foreclosures that many, mostly the uninformed public, continue to bring into conversations, with the end of forbearance nearing .  The stated flood of foreclosures on the horizon is just not going to happen. 
 
The above chart is but one indicator the housing market is much different than that of the housing crash in 2008.  2008 and 2010 showed Home Inventory at 1 year levels and today the national average is roughly 3 months.  Many areas, such as Sandpoint North Idaho, being far less than … (5 comments)

north idaho real estate for sale: Signage - Company Names - Directions - Express Yourself - 10/31/21 05:37 AM
Everywhere we go whether driving, walking, flying, boating there is signage.  Advertising, company names, directions, expressing yourself.  Idaho is no different...although:
 
When it comes to expressing yourself, North Idaho businesses and residents tend to cut straight to the chase.  Some North Idaho signage you may enjoy.  These were found stretching from Bonners Ferry, Sandpoint to Priest River Idaho.

north idaho real estate for sale: 'Friday Flag' Sandpoint Realty LLC - October 29, 2021 - 10/30/21 04:41 AM

'Friday Flag' this week involved some travel again.  Returning home from Quinn's Hot Springs Montana I could not pass by the burger shack in St. Regis Montana.  Had to have a huckleberry shake before getting on I-90 West to head back home. 
 
As I came to the drive up window could not help but appreciate 'Ole Glory' that greeted all the patrons of the small burger shop.  Thank you St. Regis Montana business for proudly flying our USA Flag.  Not to mention the huckleberry shake was well worth the stop before getting on the highway!

north idaho real estate for sale: North Idaho Fall Beauty Also Brings Work - 10/10/21 02:50 PM

We all know the beauty to be found with Autumn and Fall and the dramatic colors.  North Idaho enjoys all 4 seasons.  What many times forgotten is the work shortly after the Autumn transpires to fall.
The two pics above show virtually the same view only 2 weeks apart.  The photo below is but a small portion of needles having been raked into miniature hay stacks. 
Of course there is no reason why one can not turn the work and end result into something fun and enjoyable to look at as well.  Make the most of YOUR fall.

north idaho real estate for sale: 'Monday Motivation' from Sandpoint Idaho - 03/29/21 09:04 AM
Top of the morning.  In posting 'Monday Motivation' over the past years there have been a few that stick out, and I like to repost them from time to time.  Mostly as a reminder to myself. This particular Sandpoint Idaho Monday Motivation is my favorite.
 
With 1st quarter 2021 coming to an end and 2020 having passed a bit ago maybe now is a good time to take a moment and reflect back.  I find it motivating in that during tough times, when an obstacle arises, or even the bland day to day, knowing whether a month, or a year, I will … (11 comments)
