Up to date information on all things real estate in the Mountain Home, Idaho area.
I just completed a year long (well, it took ME a year) program leading to certification under the ECOBroker program.  The primary goal of ECOBroker is to train real estate professionals about residential energy efficiency and home environmental issues (e.g. indoor air quality) so that we can can ...
I'm not quite sure how to handle this (true) story. I'll try to do so with sensitivity and dignity but..... Several Boise investors were among those victimized in a $95 million dollar scam where a "1031 Exchange Accommodator" (more about this later) took the investors' money to purchase businesse...
