After a decade working the same wonderful Boise area real estate market, even going through the rough times, this market never ceases to amaze me. It seemed to me, when all the news was talking about this huge plunge in the Real Estate market, we were still doing just fine.
Then it did eventually hit us, and sales numbers dried up, but it was well into 2007 before it actually slowed down and crashed. At least that’s how it was for me. 2008 was ugly, and it just got uglier.
But I often pondered why it took so long to affect the market in the Boise Real Estate market. We kind of have our own little micro-economy (and micro-climate for that matter)
I predicted against what some other Brokers were saying. We will be one of the last markets to recover. I started seeing multiple offers on REO’s and Short Sales even late last summer, way before ANY mention of a comeback in the local or national news.
So we did see an early recovery start, even with a late crash.
This is what the market looks like now it seems like. When you go showing, your almost always waiting to either get an appointment, or waiting for the party that got there before you to finish.
This is actually one of our Reservoir’s releasing water to make room for more into the river as the snow melts off the mountains.
What a sight, it’s how I see the market today in the Boise area Real Estate Market. It’s not 2006-07, but it sure feels like it after what we have all been through!!
