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!!
One thing many home sellers, especially those new to the process, are surprised by is the stress that can come with selling a home – the showings, the appointments, and of course the paperwork – but fortunately selling your home doesn’t have to be the cause of your next mental break. We’ve put together these great tips to help you stop the stress!
Once the ball gets rolling and you’re caught up in the planning and packing it can be easy to get overwhelmed and forget the excitement you felt when you first began. So hold tight to the reasons for this move that are positive and focus on the new space. Take things one at a time and don’t let yourself get buried – just breathe.
For you. For the family. For taking two seconds to take two seconds. It’s important to make the time in your busy schedule for just connecting to the things in your life that make you happy and are also very likely one of the larger reasons for your move. Take time to make time.
Jitters Are Okay
It’s completely normal to feel nervous over excited when you stop and think of how big a change you’re making. New place, new stuff, new everything – Ack! It can all be a little bit much to handle and it’s perfectly okay to question yourself and even feel a little unsure. Talk to your loved ones about your emotional concerns, voice them to your agent and talk about any other concerns as well.
Don’t put things off that need done, but if your move isn’t coming up fast don’t make yourself crazy trying to rush into things – you’re more likely to make mistakes that way. Organize a list of tasks, create a timeline of when those tasks need to start and be completed, and then go from there. This will help you get a broad overlook of the journey ahead and know exactly how much rush you need to put on things.
These are some simple personal things you can do to de-stress during your home selling process. There are of course any number of tasks in themselves that need to be done – stopping utilities, moving mail, etc – so be sure to keep them in mind as you prepare for you move. Talk to your chosen real estate agent as well, they are sure to have information to help you along the way!
