Janna Rankin Scharf, GRI, CLHMS, SFR - Coeur d'Alene Idaho Homes for Sale The other day I was out in Rathdrum installing a lock box on a new listing.  As I drove along I noticed an interesting sight - three turkeys strutting along the side of the road!  Which posed the interesting question:  Why did the turkeys cross the road?  I pulled over and grabbed my camera, and thought I'd get a closer look. The birds seemed annoyed at my stalking of them, and about as cooperative as my kids are when I try to snap pictures of them.  They were a constantly moving target, and one guy in particular ruffled his tail feathers repeatedly in an attempt to scare me away.  But rather than trot off in the other direction, they were determined to get past me and cross to the other side of the road. Eventual...

Subtitle: The perils of trespassing in the back woods in North Idaho! A Broker Price Opinion is an opinion of property value.  Several years ago, when I returned to north Idaho, I began doing BPO's as a way to bring in a little income while I reestablished my real estate business.  When the number of homes being offered as short sales began climbing, so did the requests by loss mitigation departments of the mortgage lenders for BPO's.  Not quite as sophisticated as an appraisal, it is a real estate broker's opinion of value for a property.  Some of the factors that I consider when formulating my opinion of value are the surrounding properties, sales trends in the neighborhood, property condition and repairs needed.  The property is compared to similar properties that have recently sold,...

Golden Spike Estates is a picturesque 75 acre community for adults 55 and older located on the south side of Rathdrum, just off Highway 41.  What's different about this community is that residents buy their homes, but lease their land, which cuts the cost of home ownership.  Homeowners can reserve the community center, complete with a fully equipped kitchen, for their own events. There's an outdoor picnic area with a firepit and BBQ grills. There's even a beauty salon that offers services for both men and women. The lot leases are $315 and include water, sewer and garbage service, taxes on the land, and a clubhouse with an exercise room, TV, lap swimming pool, sauna and large jetted tub.  Sounds like a bargain to me! The amenities bring to mind a vacation playground and also include a s...
