Occasional posts about Boise, real estate, and things that catch my mind... I love it here, and sometimes I just need to tell you about it!
The Building Contractors Association of Southwestern Idaho is bringing their 2009 Parade of Homes to the Treasure Valley beginning Saturday April 25th and running through May 10th.  Weekday hours are 5PM to 8PM, Fridays are 3PM to 8PM, and Saturday and Sunday hours are Noon to 8PM.  This year the...
I just got my latest newsletter out, and here is the most recent real estate update I sent to my friends and past clients... As expected, January usually sets the low mark for the year for Ada County home sales and that is true again for 2009.  Single Family Homes sold in January were a meager 23...
"Deck the horse with boughs of hollyFa la la la lah..." The annual Boise Christmas Parade takes place Saturday November 29th in downtown Boise.  The parade begins at 9:45AM, starting from the Morrison Center and proceeding north down Capitol Boulevard, west on Battery Street, then south on 9th to...
In September we saw an increase in closed sales over the year before. It was a situation that the local and national papers heralded as very good news for the troubled housing market. I even heard one local radio real estate show suggest we'd see a strong rebound in October, November, and Decembe...
In normal years past we've usually seen the highest monthly sales during the month of June or July. It appears that our market has settled down to a normal flow, even if the total sales figure is smaller than we'd like.  Single Family home sales in Ada County for the month of July were 489.  That...

Meridian Dairy Days is coming at the end of this week, June 18th through the 21st, highlighted by the parade on Friday evening.  This is truly one of our best small town events here in Meridian, and the weather looks like it's going to be perfect.  Last year there were thousands of folks who turn...
Home sales in Ada County during May showed a modest improvement over April's numbers, with 504 single family homes closed for the month.  While that doesn't seem like much, the monthly increases are showing a normal trend for this time of year.  We have a market that is acting normally, albeit at...
The most frequently asked question right now is "Are any houses selling?"  Some folks seem surprised when I tell them, yes, homes are selling in the Treasure Valley right now.  Definitely not on the same pace as two summers ago, but better than we saw over the winter.  In fact, the 460 homes that...
It's time again for the Parade of Homes!  The 2008 Parade of Homes by the Building Contractors Association of Southwestern Idaho will take place beginning Saturday April 26th through Sunday May 11th.  This year there are a few less than the 37 new homes that were on the Parade last year, but this...
