Realtor/Agent/Broker in Boise & SW Idaho
Homes & Real Estate Since 1991.
Jan 18, 2019 What's New Here...
- Yes! Perfect timing for buyers and investors to beat the spring rush. Mortgage rates held at a 9-month low this week, averaging 4.45% for a 30-yr fixed owner occupied loan, according to Freddie Mac's weekly survey. One year ago this rate was 4.04%.
- New year- Same Low Supply, Rising Home Prices. See my Market Monitor, updated to Jan 1st, for monthly updates on the Boise Metro housing markets; current trends and 10+ year history on home sales, inventory, new construction & prices.
- Q4 Housing Prices Softened, But Only Temporarily. See my Newsletter with quarterly updates & analysis on local housing market trends.
- Few Foreclosures... See all (5) local repos currently for sale in my Foreclosed Homes and HUD Homes pages. Also my Auctions page with links to the MLS listings for upcoming live & internet real estate auctions.
Help for Home Buyers... Don't work with the listing agent, who works for the seller. Best to avoid talking to the seller or their agent- it could cost you. Choose me as your buyer's rep to guide you through the home buying process. You'll get an experienced broker's personal assistance through every step. I will work evenings and weekends to fit your schedule. See my Why Use A Buyer's Rep article to learn more.
Are you still renting? See my First-Time Buyer Page to learn more about buying a home.
Hire me as your buyer's agent and it becomes my legal obligation to be your advocate and work in your interest to help you search, view & evaluate all homes for sale in your price range. I provide automatic emails on listings that match your criteria from the best source- the local MLS. Also, a free collaboration center website dedicated to your search, allowing you to sort, save & map your favorites. Call or text me now at 208-866-3481. I can also refer you to good local lenders for financing & pre-approval.
Help for Investors... Yes, the Boise housing market is tight, but there's no sign of a slow-down in sight with continued population growth. Prices and rents are rising, vacancy is low and money is cheap, making it a good time to invest and leverage real estate for long-term appreciation, tax shelter and positive cash flow. I bring major experience in construction & repair, owning rentals and serving many investors buying rentals and fixers. Ask me for the best income & fixer properties for sale or a sample cash flow/investment analysis on a home for rental. Also see my Investor Page.
I help Sellers...The market has remained very strong over the winter with low supply and limited choices for buyers working in sellers' favor. Very much a seller's market, the average seller moved less than 1% off asking last year. I am expecting a super strong spring rush with warmer weather, so get those properties ready.
My years of experience and unique skill-set will help to prepare your home for sale, price your home right, get maximum exposure and the highest possible price. I am happy to provide market research and advice to help you decide when to sell, refinance or remodel. Contact me for a free consultation, market analysis & estimate of proceeds.
Repeat Clients... Thank you for trusting in me as your Realtor. In return I offer free advice, market price updates and reduced listing fees on any property you bought through me. Your endorsement would mean a lot to me- see About Me/Endorsements in the top menu.
What do those letters behind my name stand for?
To me they mean quality, commitment & experience. Actually, they are designations I have earned and maintain from the National Association of Realtors: ABR = Accredited Buyer's Representative, CRS = Certified Residential Specialist (Did 75+ transactions in 5 years to earn), GRI = Graduate of Realtor Institute. Last I checked, only 14 out of 1800+ Boise Realtors hold all three designations.
I serve SW Idaho: Mainly the Treasure Valley- Ada & Canyon counties; Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Star, Kuna, Nampa, Caldwell, Middleton and surrounding areas (Helped buyers search from Horseshoe Bend to Marsing and from Glens Ferry to Fruitland).
