  Sometimes people ask me why I am with a regular broker.  I could make so much more money with a $500 transaction fee.   I tell them that I feel that I get value for my split.  I get great tools and advice.  I have transaction coordinators and a team that make my job easier. I have people who ho...

 About 3 years ago I saw a cool piece of property on the Meridian/Nampa border.  It was 6 acres.    It had a cool hand built log cabin and a shop.    The zoning was bad.  Only 1 house every 5 acres When I called Ada county they told me in it was in the jurisdiction of the city of Meridian.   The ...

The tree grew as a volunteer.  The neighbor hated it.  Bill Taylor (who I work with) helps me on lots of projects.  Bill also lived in the house I am prepping for sale for 15 years.   It is strange that I own the house.  I did not buy it from Bill but that is another story.  I basically know Bill...

We aquried Peppers when he was 3-4 weeks old.  He definitly was a waif.   He was underweight and buggy.  We almost lost him.  I was working on a project and some young boys brought this sad looking kitten to me and asked me to take him home.   Fast forward 5 months and the time has come for him t...

The home appeared on my feed at Sundown on Saturday.  It was a well kept manufactured home in the mountains on 1 acre of land.   It looked like something I wanted to see.  I contacted the other agent on Sunday and asked if it had offers.  Sadly it had one.   I contacted a friend who was vaccinate...

You have found the perfect home, your offer was accepted and you are ready to move in.  You are excited and then you get a dreaded call from the lender to tell you that the new furniture you just bought means you no longer qualify for the loan. I have seen th...

   In the last few years the home prices in Boise have gone up.  It used to be two parents could almost always afford rent or be able to buy a home.   This is not the case anymore.  The opening price for a 3 bed/2 bath home is approaching $400,000.  People are trying to buy trailers on rented lot...

  When I woke up on Wed.  I thought I was within 2 weeks of listing. It is remotely possible that I am.   The first thing that happened is it got snowy and cold.  That sort of stops the outside work cold (pun intended).  The painter is behind schedule but if we have to we can come behind him.  No...

I have a lead generating service.   Yesterday I got a call from an older lady.  She was excited.  She had just sold her home and was calling on a mobile home on a rented lot.  That particular one was pending.  She did not know about lot rent.  I found out she did not have the money for a mortgage...

I love good old fashioned competition.  I appreciate it when potential home seller's do their research and actually pay attention to what a Realtor does (or doesn't do) to market themselves.If you can't find an agent easily on line, what are the odds they will be able to help your house get found...

Of the ALL the homes priced up to $250,000 NONE of them sold for CASH!  As a matter of fact, the average seller even paid $5,000 toward the buyer's costs.That is the problem with just reading the headlines and not looking deeper at the data.  How many homes created this statistic . . . only 1.Tha...
