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.

The days of house flipping seem to be on a down ward spiral. There are fewer flipping shows on TV and we just don't really hear people talk about it much anymore. Why is that?

For starters, house prices have risen, and it’s harder to flip an expensive home. Well, It's harder to make it worth the investment of time and money usually required to take a run-down property and turn it around. Houses that are flipped are usually bought at a very low price, but they usually need a huge amount of work, and not just the cosmetic changes. Many homes that are flipped need extensive repairs and renovations.

Depending on the price range, If looking at homes in 200K or more, there are homes now on the market in desirable neighborhoods than there were just a few years ago, getting a good return on the investment is much more difficult for flippers. When home buyers don’t have to fight over property, and don’t have to take whatever’s available in a desirable area, flippers may not make enough profit to make the investment worth their while. Under 200K there is a low inventory in certain areas.

More houses to choose from may also mean they’re not selling as quickly. When houses are sitting on the market for extended periods of time, the investors are losing money. They have to carry the mortgage, insurance, taxes, and maintenance costs of each house they’ve flipped, while paying for their own residence as well. The longer the property sits, the more that comes out of the investor’s pocket. This is a real discouragement to flippers.

RealtyTrac (Market Watcher) has reported that the number of flipped houses across the US has declined steadily since mid-2013. At the same time, the gross profit on flips has also declined, making flipping a less attractive means of investing in real estate.

For the average home buyer, this could mean you’re not competing against cash buyers all the time. If you are interested in a home that needs updating and you have the cash and the skills to do the work, fewer flippers is a good thing for you as a buyer. You can buy an older house that’s been well maintained and is in generally good condition, but crying out for updating. Cosmetic changes to the kitchen and bathrooms won't be as expensive than a brand new house [and a good investment].

But don’t get content and think you have plenty of time: There are signs that interest rates are going to be rising. While that discourages home flippers, it also means that you’ll be getting less home for the money. As your choices broaden and it becomes easier to find the home you want in an neighborhood you like at a price you can afford, you will need to weigh those benefits against the quite real possibility that your home could cost you much more in the months — or even weeks — to come.

Take advantage of the fact that cash-paying flippers aren’t dominating the market anymore. For all of your Real Estate needs, Please Contact me today and get started!
