During the last week of March it was announced that there will be a public hearing on the revised master plan for the Harris Ranch development off of Warm Springs on Boise's east side.  The Harris Ranch development is one of Boise's first large planned community developments, dating back into the mid-90's.  It was a project that was proposed for more than 3000 acres of agricultural and foothill land owned by the Harris family.  In the past, the property has been the site of farms, as well as a lumber mill, and the early 1900s Barber townsite.  The original plans called for nearly 1800 homes, as well as the construction of a bridge across the Boise River at the end of Parkcenter connecting to Warm Springs Avenue.  The city had placed restictions on the number of homes that were allowed ...

Earlier this week the Census Bureau released new figures for population growth in U.S. counties.  It has previously released figures that show that Arizona, Nevada, and Idaho were the three fastest growing states by percentage increase in the United States between mid 2005 and mid 2006 (3.6, 3.5, and 2.6 percent).  Idaho has been the third fastest growing state for two years in a row now.The county numbers released this week show Ada county to be the fourth fastest growing county in the state, by percentage.  Ada's growth of 13,617 last year was a 3.9 percent increase.  Valley county (think McCall) was first with 6.3 percent, followed by Canyon (Nampa-Caldwell) with 5 percent, and Teton (Driggs, on the eastern edge of the state) with 4.6 percent in third place.  Canyon county made it t...

Do you like to drive through the North End and watch the seasonal changes in some of the classic old home neighborhoods?  Don't you just love driving Harrison Boulevard in the fall when the leaves are changing?  Have you ever wondered what is inside those big old homes over on Harrison Boulevard?  Are they as wonderful inside as they are from the street?  You really don't want to call your Realtor to set up an appointment for a home you know you aren't buying, but you're curious just the same.  Well, according to the Idaho Statesman today, one of those marvelous old homes has just been through a two year restoration and will be featured in one of the segments on HGTV's program "If Walls Could Talk"  .  The program airs this Sunday at 9pm.  The home is a wonderful, large two story home ...

One of the first things you notice about Boise and the Treasure Valley when you come here in the winter months is how brown everything is.  Many of our newcomers are relocating from the coastal states, and invariably they ask "is it always this brown here?"  And, it being winter still, the answer is "yes, for awhile longer".Boise sits on the Boise River, and the name really does derive from the first explorers seeing the trees along the river course as they came over the hill at what is now called Bonneville Point.  The Boise River, and the Snake River a bit to the south, flow through what is called "high desert".  Our annual recipitation (including snowfall of about 21 inches) is 11.7 inches.  Compare that to Seattle and Portland's 36.2 inches, San Francisco's 20.4 inches, San Diego's...

As we enter the second month in this year, 2007, we find that we have more buyer activity in the Boise Metro area of Idaho.  Last year we had buyers coming to view homes but they had homes to sell somewhere else before they could purchase here.  They were coming from Florida, Massachusetts, West Virginia and Virginia, California and Arizona.Now we have buyers coming that have accepted offers on their present homes and are ready to buy.  We wrote six offers in January and expect several to be written in the next week as well as more opportunities to list properties for sale.Sellers are still resistant to reductions in price, even though the accepted offers are only after reductions in price over a several month period of being on the market.  Until we are able to stabilize, we expect to ...
