When opportunity knocks ?Answer the door?. Time is running out on the buying opportunities for upper end Boise and Eagle Idaho homes.

I project Jan – March to be the best buying opportunities for upper end homes in the cities of Boise and Eagle that we have seen in over a decade – but, don’t wait too long.  Inventories are shrinking daily so get-a-movin if you want a bargain.  “But Darrin I have a house to sell in Boise first and now’s not the best time.”  I hear clients say this all the time. My answer is in the form of a simple question.  What if I can show you how you can make $75,000 - $100,000 by selling low and buying-up? Would you be interested?  Answer: YES.  Ok – here is how it works.  We sell your $350,000 house that you thought was worth $375,000 at the top of the market a year ago.  We put that on the market for $325,000 to get it sold fast - right now.  Audible sigh and slight groan:  Now I show them 4-6 homes in the 700-900k range that I know are valued higher or could be purchased at bargain prices - as much as $200,000 under market highs.   Big smile and “That’s cool!” comment.

Now – all this sounds easy but it requires extensive market knowledge of the Boise and Eagle Idaho real estate and experience in negotiating with banks, builders and attorneys. .  When I say experience I mean more than a decade as Realtor.  Remember 80% of all Realtors have never worked in a market like we have now. That was about eight years ago.  So don’t you be the guinea pig.  And by market knowledge your agent should be able to demonstrate why a property is a good value and why it is a good investment for you and your family.

I have just sketched out a few basics here.  Feel free to drop me a line or leave a comment if you have general question or if you would like to talk about your personal goal.
