Your Real Estate Advocate in
Boise & SW Idaho Since 1991.
Nov 19, 2021 Welcome! What Is New Here...
...Boise Idaho Market Update Winter is bargain season! Buying at the slowest time of year can really pay off, however conditions still favor sellers with less than a month in local supply. With such low supply, I expect home prices to really jump again in the spring, so make your move before the spring rush.
...Growing Inventory Falters in October The seasonal slow-down has arrived in the Boise Metro housing markets, which is opportunity for buyers to get a better deal. For details, see my Market Monitor, now updated to Nov 1st, for monthly updates on the Boise Metro housing markets; home prices, inventory, new construction, current trends and 14-year history.
...Mortgage Rates jumped this week, averaging 3.1% on a 30-yr fixed owner occupied loan, according to the Freddie Mac weekly survey. Rates are expected to rise due to inflation, so now is the time.
...Q3 Home Prices Still Rising in Boise Metro See my latest Quarterly Newsletter with updates & analysis on local housing market trends.
...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... Conditions are much more favorable to buyers this time of year. More choices and longer market times make all the difference in finding the right home and negotiating seller concessions. Contact me for help through the home buying process. 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 can provide an automated feed of MLS listings via 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 forget waiting for a downturn. Work harder, save your money, pay your bills on time. With these near record low interest rates, 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... I know it's scary after the recent huge price gains, but our local housing shortage is still driving prices and rents up, so cash flow should improve and price increases are likely next year. Vacancy is low and money is cheap, making it favorable 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 served many investors.
