Dec 5, 2022  What Is New Here...

Mortgage Rates dropped again last week, averaging 6.48% (w 9/10ths of a point buy down) on a 30-yr fixed owner-occupied loan according to the Freddie Mac weekly survey of mortgage lenders. Below is a 50-year history for comparison. 

November Inventory, Contracts & Closings Still Slowing...  Home sales continue to slow with higher mortgage rates and inventory is now falling as existing home sellers pull back. There is good news for buyers.  For details, see my Market Monitor, now updated to December 1st, for monthly updates on the Boise Metro housing markets; home prices, inventory levels, new construction, current trends and 15-year history.

Help for Sellers...  
Consider me for listing agent. I offer discounts for repeat and multi-deal clients. Earned through many years of practice, my knowledge of market conditions, finance, construction, marketing and valuation will be your advantage as I 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. Also for bargain hunters, my Auctions page with links to MLS listings for upcoming live & internet real estate auctions.

Help for Home Buyers... The market has turned in favor of buyers! With inventory and market times rising, getting a seller to pay your closing costs or buy down your rate is much more possible now, 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. See my Why Use A Buyer's Rep article to learn more.

Hire me as your buyer's agent and I am required to be your advocate and be available to help you search, view, evaluate and make offers on homes for sale. I make searching 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? We are in the middle of a national housing shortage that will take years to remedy, so it is very hard to imagine home prices falling far. With interest rates expected to keep rising, now is the 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... The bargains are back! I built my career creating wealth on the buy for my clients and buyers finally have some power to negotiate again. Despite the current slowing, we still have a housing shortage and vacancy is 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.
