Boise Magazine Inside Front Cover

30 04 2010

What do you think?  I would appreciate getting some feedback on this. . . . . . beginning with the May issue I have purchased the inside front cover of the Boise Magazine for a year.

Here is my business hunch.  With so many Realtors quitting the business right now, my guess is that there will be a lot of “unattached” potential clients.

We will see. I spent several thousand dollars advertising on Realtor.com a couple of years ago and it turned out to be a bust! :o(

March Home Sales

22 04 2010

I just noticed that the National Association of Realtors is reporting an increase of home sales in March over February of 6.8%  Of course you would expect that March would increase over February.  The good news being touted in the media is that this increase is more than the 5.2% of earlier projections.  Great!  But my next question is how does that compare with our local market?

Well guess what! Ada County was up 68% You read it correctly. Not 6.8; but 68% That is huge!!! Canyon was up 39%.

In all of these stats this is only dealing with resale homes, not new construction. So my continuing sense is that when the market, especially on the west coast, is headed down, we go down at an even sharper rate. But when it goes up, well Ada & Canyon County climb even faster!





Starting A Fire

8 04 2010

Have you ever tried to get a fire going with damp wood? I have and it wasn’t easy! We were camping and finally resorted to a bit of gasoline. Whoosh! The blaze was instantaneous. However after the gasoline had burned, the wood still hadn’t caught fire.

For the last 8 months the real estate market has been fueled by the tax credit and first time home buyers. Sales are up dramatically from the same month in the prior year. April closings in Ada & Canyon Counties will be strong as well.

Since the contracts only have to be signed by 4/30/10 and close by 6/30/10 it will be interesting to see what happens after the gas burns off.  What is your prediction?

Last week I published the March Statistics for Ada & Canyon County as well as The “Inside Scoop.” This is a very detailed analysis of the local real estate market available to subscribers through my Boise Idaho Realtor website
