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.

Investing in real estate can be an exciting and profitable venture, but it can also be intimidating for someone just getting their feet wet in the real estate investment world. How do you go about investing in real estate? Where do you start? This post will give you a very brief overview of two of the main principles of real estate investment. This is just a primer. Real estate investment is usually much more complex than what is laid out in this post.

There are several different types of real estate investments. Do you want to flip homes? Do you want to own an apartment complex, a retail strip center, a small office building? All of these examples require different skill sets, but they generally rely on the same two principles in order to make money: cash flow and appreciation.

There are a few different definitions and types of cash flow, but for this post I will be talking about the cash flow generated from income minus expenses. Let’s say you own a retail strip center. You earn a total of $100,000 of rent in a year. You have expenses from property taxes, repairs, insurance, utilities, and other miscellaneous items of $75,000 during the year. Your total cash flow for the year would be $100,000 - $75,000 = $25,000. This type of cash flow is also called net operating income. One of the main measurements in commercial real estate and real estate investing is called the capitalization rate. It is the rate of return based on the expected income the property will generate. It is expressed as a percentage, and is calculated by dividing the net operating income by the total cost of the investment. For example, you purchased that property in the previous example for $1,000,000. Since you made $25,000 in a year, the capitalization rate would be 25,000/1,000,000 = 0.025 or 2.5%. Frankly, not a very good return on your investment. If you’re investing in commercial real estate, you will come across this calculation.

The other principle is appreciation. Appreciation is simple enough; it is the increase of value of the property over time. Let’s say you purchased a single family home for $100,000. You waited two years and then you sold the home for $150,000. You earned $50,000 in appreciation on that home. Combining cash flow and appreciation can earn you a pretty penny.

This, of course, was a very brief explanation of two principles of investing in real estate. There are many more tricks and factors that need to be considered. There are tons of books and websites devoted to real estate investment. Read up, or just come talk to me. I specialize in commercial real estate investment, and I would enjoy answering any questions you may have.
