Star Idaho is a great little community just outside of Boise. This quiet small town was originally created by a boom in the railroad and agricultural industries many years ago, but Star remains the trading center of a working community which earns its living for the most part from the soil. The homes here offer a little more elbow room and easy access to the big city when you want it.

A recent National Association of Realtors survey revealed that nearly eight out of ten believe buying a home is still a good financial decision.
The eighth annual Housing Opportunity Pulse Survey found that despite job security concerns being the highest reported in the last eight years, buying is still on the minds of Americans.
More than two-thirds of those surveyed, 68 percent, still think that “now is a good time to buy a home.” And though cost remains an impediment for many buyers, the majority of respondents worry about the drop in home values. This is happening all across the nation as neighborhoods combat the effects of rampant foreclosures.
Over half surveyed say that foreclosures are a moderate to big problem in their area. And recent statistics from Zillow.com show that foreclosures are still on the rise. Last year’s survey indicated that the blame for foreclosures was on those who bought homes they couldn’t afford. That focus and blame has now shifted to the ailing job market, with layoffs and unemployment
There is concern, as well, over banks and lending standards. The majority of those surveyed worry that “banks have made it too hard to qualify for a home mortgage loan.”
Are there new buyers waiting to enter the housing market? The survey reveals that 39 percent of renters feel that owning a home at some point in the future is a high priority. And 24 percent rank it as a moderate priority. That could be good news for a market desperate for buyers.
Home prices have begun to show their first signs of rising; mortgages rates like we’ve seen simply will not be around forever. If you are looking to enjoy some of the best living in Idaho contact me today to start finding the real estate you’ve been searching for!!
There are a million and one details to get in order when the time come to sell your home, and having the help of a qualified Idaho REALTOR® will prove invaluable, but beyond their assistance there are a few things homeowners themselves to avoid in order to help the sale go smoothly.
Take care of dead patches and be sure to keep on top of cutting the yard during the sales process. Pull weeds and maybe even add just a few potted flowers to spruce things up a bit.
Touch Up The Paint
A can of paint can go a long way! If there are damage spots go ahead and give them a once over. Patch any minor holes as well. If it’s within budget don’t be afraid to take this time to even consider painting a room or taking care of any exterior paint issues as well.
Keep It Clean
Clean away cobwebs, sweep up leaves, and consider even having the outside of your house pressure washed. It’s a great idea to have the windows cleaned as well. Living in your home day to day you often don’t realize how grimy the outside of your house can get; giving it a good wash is almost like a new coat of paint.
Don’t Go Overboard
De-cluttering is one of the most important things and it’s usually the easiest to do. You don’t have to remodel the entire house or put in a new deck to add value to your home and make it more saleable, so focus on the little things. Make your home inviting and showcase all the reasons you’ve loved it over the time you’ve been there and your agent will do the rest!
