Eagle
Eagle Idaho is a desireable, upscale community nestled along the base of the Boise foothills. Eagle offers high-end, quality-crafted homes, fine dining, boutique shopping and a friendly community. The Boise river meanders through Eagle and you'll often find folks walking the greenbelt or enjoying a peaceful picnic along the banks. Eagle offers convenient access to the entire Treasure Valley and provides direct routes to northern ski areas, foothills hiking, river rafting and other fun Idaho outdoor activities. If you prefer newer construction homes in an upscale market then Eagle is the place for you. Pictured above is Rembrandt’s Coffee House in Eagle’s quaint downtown area.
The North End
North Boise is one of the most sought after communities in the Boise area. Affectionately referred to as The North End, here you will find classic architecture and character in the turn of the century and early 1900's era homes. Many homes in The North End have been fully restored to their original condition with a complementary touch of modern conveniences. If you enjoy tree-lined streets, patio-dining at corner restaurants and quiet and peaceful neighborhoods then be certain to see a few Boise homes in this area during your visit. Pictured above is Boise’s historic Harrison Boulevard which runs from Boise’s thriving downtown through the heart of The North End.

In case you haven’t noticed, Boise’s downtown area is experiencing an unprecedented construction boom with at least 7 major projects under construction or in the planning stage in the downtown core alone. Boise Planning Director Hal Simmons attributes this surge in part to the Great Recession. He believes it refocused attention back to the downtown. And this trend is playing out in larger cities across the Pacific NW and West.

If you’re thinking of downsizing and getting rid of the lawnmower and paint brush, there’s never been a better time to consider buying a downtown condo. Yes, it’s a lifestyle change and one you have to carefully plan for, but the payoff can be huge. Everything is within a few blocks of you…restaurants, espresso bars, theaters, shopping, sports venues, and upscale markets, to name a few. However, you need to do your homework and be prepared for some challenges along the way.

The biggest challenge is that condo mortgages are tougher to get than traditional homes. The “Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016” was touted as a law that would dramatically improve long-fought restrictions on FHA financing for condominiums. Its intent was to change FHA condominium rules and make it much easier to get condo projects certified by FHA, giving Realtors more options for clients looking to purchase a condo with an FHA mortgage. However, to date that simply hasn’t happened.

Lenders impose a different set of rules on you when you buy a condo. They may sometimes require a larger down payment and charge you a higher interest rate. The majority of homeowners typically get “conforming” mortgage financing when they purchase a home. This means that their loan meets Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac - government-sponsored agencies who purchase a lot of loans - minimum standards. These agencies use the term “warrantable” to identify condo project against which they’ll allow a mortgage. Those projects that don’t meet their standards are labeled as “non-warrantable,” and non-warrantable condos are harder to finance.

Is your heading spinning yet? If so, don’t worry. You just need to find an experienced Realtor and mortgage lender who have “been there, done that” to help guide you through the maze. You can purchase the condo you desire AND get reasonable financing if you choose your team - your Realtor and lender - wisely. Don’t be afraid to interview them and ask them about their experience in successfully closing condo transactions. Remember, you may suffer some short-term inconvenience to condo ownership, but in the long run it’s worth it!
