Practicing since 1991 to be your agent in the Boise Area.
Mar 17, 2023 What Is New Here...
Mortgage Rates eased this week after rising 5 weeks straight, averaging 6.6% on a 30-yr fixed owner-occupied loan according to Freddie Mac. See below- the average over the last 50 years is 7.65%. Forget those once-in-a-lifetime lows of the last few years. Today's rates are still on the low side!
January Momentum Fades in February... Contract signings increase slowed with rising rates. Inventory tightens further. For details, see my Market Monitor, now updated to March 1st, for monthly updates on the Boise Metro housing markets; home prices, inventory levels, new construction, current trends and 15-year history.
Looking Back- Q4 Prices Slide Further in Boise Metro See my latest Quarterly Newsletter with updates & analysis on local housing market trends.
Help for Sellers... I offer discounts for repeat and multi-deal clients. My many years of local knowledge and practice estimating values will help you set a likely sale price, identify repairs/improvements that will pay in resale value, get maximum effective exposure for your listing and the highest possible sale price.
*Contact me for a free consultation, market analysis & estimate of proceeds.
Foreclosures? ZERO See all local repos currently for sale in my Foreclosed Homes and HUD Homes pages. Bargain hunters see my Auctions page with links to MLS listings for upcoming live & internet real estate auctions.
Help for Home Buyers... This slower market really helps us get sellers to pay your closing costs, greatly reducing the cash required to buy a home. Contact me for help starting the home buying process. I've helped hundreds of buyers to evaluate thousands of homes and would love to work hard for you. See my Why Use A Buyer's Rep article to learn more.
As your buyer's agent I am required to be your advocate and be available to help you search, view, evaluate and make offers on homes for sale. Searching is easy with MLS listings fed to your email and a collaboration center that allows you to map, sort, save and track your favorites. *Call or text me now at 208-866-3481 to get your questions answered.
Still renting? The average existing home sale price in Ada County is down 20% from the peak last May. We still have a local housing shortage, so buying makes good sense long-term. Now is a good time to make a move toward home ownership. Ask me what it takes to qualify for a home loan. See my First-Time Buyer Page to learn more about buying a home, the financial benefits and the home buying process.
Help for Investors... I built my career creating wealth on the buy for my clients. We finally have some power to negotiate with sellers again and supply and vacancy remain very low. Think of this as a buying opportunity to invest and leverage real estate for long-term appreciation, tax shelter and positive cash flow. I bring experience in construction & repair, owning & self-managing rentals and have helped many investors be successful.
*Ask me for the best income & fixer properties for sale or a sample cash flow/investment analysis on a rental property.

Repeat Clients Save Money... Thank you for trusting in me as your Realtor. In return I offer free advice, market updates and savings on listing fees on any property you bought through me.
