A quick peek in the Coeur d'Alene MLS for homes for sale as short sales on 8/16/14 turned up a list of 56. They range in price from a high of $1,500,000 for two waterfront homes on Lake Coeur d'Alene in Worley down to $39,900 for a little house in Kellogg. One thing's for sure, short sale distress is an equal opportunity condition. It's noteworthy that of those 56 homes, 11 have contracts pending, awaiting final review by the seller's lender.  I haven't seen the inventory of short sales this low in Coeur d'Alene in the past few years. If you've been sitting on the fence waiting to scoop up a super deal, you may have missed the boat! Be educated, pre-approved and prepared to POUNCE when you see a great home hit the market, or you will end up singing the blues! Homes that are being offere...

  Back in the 60's someone platted out a little subdivision in the woods above the north eastern end of Lake Coeur d'Alene and named it Bonanza Ranch. Yes, that Bonanza Ranch. Roads have names like Hoss, Little Joe and Cartwright, so it must have been someone who enjoyed the old western TV series back in the day. This is the area of the lake that is famous as a regional destination for watching the bald eagles who come every fall to feast on spawning Kokanee salmon. There are a handful homes that are grandfathered in, and then there are dozens, maybe hundreds, of platted lots about .20 acres that can't be built upon until more water taps are permitted by the community water system, and each parcel is perc tested for septic feasibility.In recent years shops have sprung up on some of thes...

I missed the boat, literally.  You can see it in the distance in this photo, heading out without me.On Wednesday I was tardy getting out of my office and heading to the lake.  My entire office was setting sail at 11:30 for our regular weekly meeting, but this time it would be while cruising beautiful Lake Coeur d'Alene.  Lunch was being served at sea, the weather was perfect and a good time was anticipated. Long story short, I waited too long to head down to the dock.  I stepped on the dock at 11:30, just in the nick of time.  There were two boats loading right before my eyes, neither one of them my boat.  My boat was departing from a different location. This week I had a conversation with someone who was bemoaning the fact that we are already well into July and the odds are not good to...
