Hire This Realtor/Agent/Broker
serving Boise & SW Idaho Since 1991.
Feb 15, 2019 Welcome! What's New Here...
*Mortgage Rates fell to a 1-year low this week, averaging 4.37% for a 30-yr fixed owner occupied loan, according to Freddie Mac's weekly survey.
*Low Supply, High Demand, Rising Prices. See my Market Monitor, updated to Feb 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, For Now. See my Quarterly Newsletter with updates & analysis on local housing market trends.
*Few Foreclosures... See all (4) 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... Remember the listing agent works for the seller. Even talking to the seller or their agent could cost you. Get your own buyer's rep to guide you through the home buying process. Hire me and 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.
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.
Still renting? See my First-Time Buyer Page to learn more about buying a home and stop falling behind. Every home owner in the Boise area has gained over $50,000 in equity in the last 2 years!
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 and 51 months in a row of falling inventory. 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 and the latest Q4 Vacancy Report from NARPM for Ada-Canyon rents and vacancy rates.
I help Sellers...The Boise area housing markets have 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 in Ada County moved less than 1% off asking in 2018 and half of all residential listings sold in just 7 days. 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, 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. Since 1991, I've helped buyers from Horseshoe Bend to Marsing and from Glens Ferry to Fruitland.
