The Paramount Community is located off Chinden Blvd and Meridian Road in NE Meridian. 1 square mile in size, it is more akin to a village within a city, comprised of a thoughtful mix of residential, retail, recreational, educational, civic and professional facilities--not just row after row of homes.  A select handful of premium Home Builders are still actively building and selling new homes in this highly amenitized subdivision.

Okay, just for an hour.  But to be fair, the lady at the entrance said that it should only take us 20 minutes - 30 if we got lost.  Yet, we were able to spend an extra 30 minutes and in the end we cheated to get out.  We had to text for clues and then we did "cheat paths" (which in retrospect probably got us lost in the first place) until we finally ended up not at the exit, but at the pumpkin patch on the other side of the maze. Oh well, it was a lot of fun.  If you are local to Boise, Idaho and you have never gone to one of our corn mazes you are missing out.  This was the first time I went - to The Farmstead Corn Maze & Pumpkin Festival.  I would recommend it to anyone.  It's fun for adults & teenagers (the corn maze is actually challenging, see above :-) and they have all kinds of ...

Ada County Market Update 2011 September sales were 564 in Ada County, an increase of 13% over September 2010. September sales YTD is 4,757; Up 7.2% over 2010 YTD. In July of 2011, we exceeded YTD 2010 sales for the first time in 2011. In August we improved to +6.1%. Now we have increased again. September sales decreased 7.5% from August 2011's 605. Historically, September sales increase over August. The change in the number of Pending Sales suggests that many transactions that were scheduled to close in September didn't.

It's unbelievable the home prices that are available in Meridian. I often get asked "what's the best subdivision in Meridian?" Although there are many great communities in Meridian, Saguaro Canyon is a master-planned community that offers 10.2 miles of walking paths, multiple community parks, and a subdivision pool. Interested in a smaller community that offers the same amentities? Check out Saguaro Springs right next door!

As I drove out to this destination, I wondered why didn't I know this was here?  The sixty acre ranch wasn't really that noticeable from the street.  As I drove in I saw an adequate parking lot for a large event.  I saw a barn looking metal structure and was greeted by Bob LaVelle and his wife when I came in.  Bob used to own Bogus Creek Outfitters and ran a sleigh ride in the winter in the mountains to a dinner served in a tent with a fireplace burning wood for heat.  They sold that enterprise and have owned the ranch for several years. I was shown around by their agent, Tim Hansen, who was a person genuinely wanting to help you to understand what you had in this wonderland.  There are ten thousand plus trees and shrubs and the landscaping is done well.  It was done with some thought i...
