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!!
Moving! It can be one of the most stressful parts of the whole real estate transitioning process.
There are so many things to remember and organize that if any one of them goes wrong there can be a whole avalanche of problems – but your dedicated real estate team here at Evans Realty LLC has some tips to help make your next move a success!
Change The Locks
Seems sort of like a strange idea to some, after all you just got the keys didn’t you?
While true, you can’t ever tell who else – from the contractor to the agent to the photographer for the builder – might have also had them before hand. In some cases there may even be a master key to multiple homes in the development. So it never hurts to swap out locks to keep things safe.
Inventory Your Belongings
Before you move, before you even start putting things in boxes, go around and make an inventory of everything. Maybe not every individual thing down to the knick knack level, but certainly the larger or more important items. This will help you make sure nothing has been forgotten and also make it easier to find when unpacking.
Clean and Paint FIRST
Make use of the empty space before you move your stuff in. You may need to do some post-construction cleaning beforehand; if you plan to paint in the near future it’s much much easier to do so before you move all the furniture in – otherwise you’ll be playing couch tetris after the fact.
Have A Plan
As the day approaches it’s good to have a plan in place. Have the movers hired, or all the logistics figured out if you plan to do it yourself. Consider having the kids or pets stay with a friend or relative on move day to keep the chaos down to a dull roar. Plan ahead for the day by having an ice chest of beverages and ready to go food on hand, as chances are there may not be a lot of time for meal prep and you don’t want a hungry/angry bunch.
Moving day doesn’t have to be hassle – neither does the process up to it; that includes buying or selling your home. Real estate in Idaho is performing extremely well and it’s a great time to consider a move if you’ve been waiting on the fence for the market to improve. Contact us today to see how we can help!
