Sold vs. Listed prices in Sandpoint Idaho Understand the difference between "listing prices" (what sellers are asking for) and "sold prices" (what buyers are willing to pay). By comparing these price trends, you'll have a good idea of where the market is heading. The median listing and sold property prices are calculated based on the market activity each month.

I ventured out onto the semi-frozen shoreline of Lake Pend Oreille, Sandpoint, Idaho today and comped together the panoramic, cold  beauty of Kootenai Bay this morning.  The harshness can be the most beautiful of all.  The eagles were certainly enjoying it...they were a little too far off to capture in this photo.

Just as I was getting ready to kick back and enjoy my family over the Holidays (including my birthday), clients came out of the woodwork requiring quick closings to take advantage of the incredible early snow depth at Schweitzer Mountain.  Relying on a little luck and whatever finesse I could muster, the mission was accomplished!  The fact that Schweitzer is currently leading the pack with the highest snow total of any major ski area in the states certainly has helped make this Holiday Season go a little bit smoother.   (SCHWEITZER MOUNTAIN REAL ESTATE ON FACEBOOK)

Maybe the accolades are actually taking effect!  Sunset Magazine has named Schweitzer Mountain a Top Twenty U.S. Ski Resort in its latest poll AND names Sandpoint, Idaho one of the Top Ten Ski Towns in the West! Powder Magazine is currently holding their Ski Town Throwdown Event where they have set up 32 brackets (similar to the NCAA Basketball Tournament) with the top ski areas/ski towns in North America.  The public is asked to vote for their favorite town.  Sandpoint/Schweitzer is in the FINAL FOUR! (Please feel free to join in the fun & vote - for Schweitzer, obviously - on Monday). Back to the effect of these accolades...  As you can see from the graph below, Schweitzer Real Estate sales have been in a steady decline since 2007 when the economy began its disasterous downturn.  It s...
