sandpoint homes: North Idaho Home Ownership - American Dream? - 07/05/22 11:42 AM
Is Northern Idaho Homeownership Still the American Dream? 
Defining the American dream is personal, and no one individual will have the same definition as another. But the feelings it brings about – success, freedom, and a sense of prosperity – are universal. That’s why, for many people, North Idaho homeownership remains a key part of the American dream. Your Sandpoint Idaho home is your stake in the community, a strong financial investment, and an achievement to be proud of.
While financial stability a major part of what Home Ownership brings, it is but one of MANY positive attributes to owning a home in … (7 comments)

sandpoint homes: Sandpoint Realty 'Friday Flag' - June 10, 2022 - 06/13/22 06:16 PM
I really like the contrast in colors with this week's 'Sandpoint Realty 'Friday Flag'.
For about the last 2 plus weeks in North Idaho we have been getting but glimpses of the sun.  Maybe a full day here and there but with cloudy skies.  
The dark skies, the soft downward lighting create a nice contrast to our 'Stars and Stripes'.  Thank you Ponderay Idaho McDonald's for proudly flying our USA Flag.

sandpoint homes: Sandpoint Realty 'Friday Flag' - June 3, 2022 - 06/03/22 02:24 AM
Sandpoint Realty 'Friday Flag' this week takes us back less than a week to Memorial Day, in Sandpoint, 2022.
I walked the Downtown City Streets of Sandpoint Idaho many many times with my little girl Halley.  My favorite times were when a holiday called for the flying of our USA Flag.  They would line downtown streets both sides.  
 
The early morning quiet always would give way to reflection.  Both on the the beauty of the numerous flags flying and the cost for them to do so.  Thank you Sandpoint Idaho for proudly flying 'Ole Glory'.

sandpoint homes: Sandpoint Realty 'Monday Motivation' - March 21, 2022 - 03/21/22 05:56 AM

'Monday Motivation' this week reminds us that quitting is seldom the best option.  Not quitting does not always lead to being a publicly renowned champion, it does give us a personal sense of pride and accomplishment.   Far more important in my opinion.

sandpoint homes: Sandpoint Realty 'Friday Flag' - February 4, 2022 - 02/04/22 09:15 PM

'Friday Flag' this week shows off a Sandpoint Idaho local business as well as a rough idea on how much snow is currently lining our streets and parking lots.  Thank you 'Flying Fish Co' for proudly flying USA Flag.
 
A little bonus pic this week.  We seldom think about snow in the parking lots and just where it goes.  It gets pushed and piled.  Bus stop at right is at street.

'Friday Flag' this week will wrap up January Flag's with a special shot.  A resident on Highway 95 who always fly's Old Glory.  Showing off calm before the storm.  Wispy clouds across the horizon, and not a feather of a breeze.  Thank you North Idaho resident for proudly flying our USA Flag.

sandpoint homes: Sandpoint Realty 'Wednesday Word' - Winter Driving - 01/26/22 08:31 AM

Driving conditions in North Idaho are unique, from most other states, in that basically from Coeur D' Alene to the Canadian Border, north of Sandpoint and Bonners Ferry, Highway 95 is a 2 lane Highway posted 60 mph.  Whether summer or winter, this demands drivers remain constantly cognizant.
As seen in the short video, business's, roads/streets, driveways all enter, and exit, directly onto the highway.  Left turning traffic can bring a line up of cars to a complete halt because of no room to go around.  Add to this deer, moose, and even turkeys, not an uncommon sight crossing the highway.  A … (11 comments)

sandpoint homes: 'Friday Flag' Sandpoint Realty - January 14, 2022 - 01/14/22 12:06 PM

'Friday Flag' is a bit late in getting started this year.  Seems as the past month has seen nothing in my hands but shovel, snow blower, or roof rake.  
 
Rather than ignore what I wanted to end last year with I will start it with 2022.  A quick look back on just a few of my favorite 'Friday Flag' shots from 2021.
 
Thank you all that proudly fly 'Ole Glory'.

sandpoint homes: Return On Investment 'ROI' for Home Updates - 11/12/21 05:10 AM
As agents we often here of the upgrades and updates a seller wants to do to their home.  Ironically 90% of the time the owner / perspective owner speaks of those upgrades on only two occasions.  When looking at the home to buy, and again when looking to sell the home.  Between those times, more often than not, life happens.  
 
The ROI chart above, on Home Upgrades, should be quite an eye opener as to the real value of Home Updates just prior to selling.  I have two other items I stress to my sellers prior to listing a home for sale.  … (5 comments)

sandpoint homes: 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)

sandpoint homes: 'Friday Flag' Sandpoint Realty LLC - October 8, 2021 - 10/08/21 07:10 AM

 
While traveling last week I was hampered with computer and connection obstacles.  So with having missed last week's 'Friday Flag' I am throwing in a bonus shot.  They fit together, for me, in that I sincerely doubt I will be seeing either again anytime soon, if ever.
 
 
Flag is framed by palm/date trees and of course the restaurant certainly an American Icon we are all familiar with at least by name if not having been at least once.
 
Thank you Yuma Arizona for proudly flying our colors.

sandpoint homes: 'Friday Flag' Sandpoint Realty LLC - September 24, 2021 - 09/24/21 02:35 AM

This weeks 'Friday Flag' pushed a couple others a week back.  While driving to a Closing in Coeur D'Alene I saw this construction worker with our USA Flag.  I had to turn around.  Told her I liked her flying Ole Glory and asked if I could take a picture.  Thank you North Idaho construction worker (ironically a flagger) for proudly flying our colors.  
In turning around the 2nd time I got the upper photo showing what a lonely job a flagger can have sometimes.  Pretty cool that she brings some personality to the job.  The photo directly above was me asking permission.

I am sure we have all stepped inside a building, outside to a garden, met someone, or listened to someone and knew it was different.  Something special yet we could not quite put our finger on what was making it special.  It was speaking volumes without a word.

I personally found that as soon as I started concentrating on my own growth rather than everything around me, my successes grew, even with their importance diminishing to me.

sandpoint homes: North Idaho's Natural Beauty - 09/19/21 10:58 AM
I am constantly reminded how fortunate I am to not only live in North Idaho but to have a career that takes me out to this type of beauty on a daily basis. 
Fields in Clark Fork as looking North towards Bonners Ferry
Clark Fork River looking East from Clark Fork towards Montana
Clark Fork River looking West to Lake Pend Oreille.
 
Keep in mind this was not a special outing.  A simple visit to one of our listings.  Are you interested in living in an area that displays this type of beauty on a daily basis?  Contact me for more specific information.
