Practicing since 1991 to be your agent in the Boise Area.
June 9, 2023 What Is New Here...
Mortgage Rates eased this week, averaging 6.71% on a 30-yr fixed owner-occupied loan according to Freddie Mac. See below the weekly average since the November peak.
May Brought End of Spring Rush... Contract signings dropped, while inventory grew slightly. For details, see my Market Monitor, now updated to June 1st, for monthly updates on the Boise Metro housing markets; home prices, inventory levels, new construction, current trends and 15-year history.
Looking Back- Q1 Prices Slide Further See my latest Quarterly Newsletter with updates & analysis on local housing market trends.
Help for Sellers... The market has softened and proper pricing is key. Supply remains low, but pending contracts are 37% below the same time last year. The median market time for sold homes is now 1-2 weeks, up from 4 days a year ago. My local knowledge and years of practice estimating values will help you set a price that will both sell & appraise, identify repairs/improvements that will pay in resale value, get maximum effective exposure for your listing and the highest possible sale price.

Foreclosures? ONE 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 means more flexible sellers. By asking them to pay your closing costs, we can greatly reduce 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? It's never too soon to set your goal on 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. Think of this price slump 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.
