Tax time again and a mound of documents and not sure what to do with it all?
Hopefully you made it through another tax season and found all of your documents needed to file your return. Now, what documents do you need to keep and which ones should you toss? Here’s a little guideline which will help you with clearing out the old paperwork, but not throwing away anything that you might need later.

Is this a good time to sell?
Here is your housing snapshot for January 2017 showing an increase of 10% in median home prices and time on market down 5% in Kootenai County. If you are a seller who is on the fence about putting your home on the market, this snapshot is a good indication that this might be a very good time for you to sell your home.
A market offering higher median home prices, shorter closing time frames and less inventory will give sellers who decide to list now have some real advantages especially this time of year.
Listing your home before the masses who wait for better weather in April and May can give you the edge for success. Low inventory combined with a large number of qualified buyers creates competition for your listing. Many buyers have already lost out on another home and these buyers are ready to pounce once your listing hits the MLS. Homes that are show ready and priced right are garnering multiple offers at full price and often offers over full price!
If you would like to be kept up to date on the market or know more about selling your home or the value of your home, contact us and we will be happy to provide you with a customized market analysis.

Election season is here. Will this next election have an impact on our real estate market? Here is what Windermere’s Chief Economist, Matthew Gardner, has to say about this subject.
Here in North Idaho we are enjoying a very healthy real estate market and we all want to see this continue. I know we all have our candidate and beliefs about who should be in office and what they can accomplish – I am no different. I do believe once we have a new president elect in office and things settle in, we will be back on track, no matter who is elected… my candiate or yours 🙂
Our market is healthy here in North Idaho and if you are looking for homes in certain price ranges, the fatigue is real! The competition is fierce. So many buyers competing for a small number of homes not only stressful but exhausting. Finding the right home and ready to make an offer just to find out another offer or two are accepted before you can even get yours submitted. Making several offers just to be edged out and having to start from ground zero. Is this you?
How can you get ahead in this market and go from making offers to getting yours accepted? A professional fulll time and strategic agent is how! Well-trained, battle ready and ready to compete for you! An agent who understands this market and has a proven strategy for your success.
Going it alone? Not finding success with what you have been trying… its time for a change. You need a plan for success and we have one! We have successfully found our buyers homes within the first week or less. We know about homes before they are listed and have strategies that are success proven. Have questions, let's connect.

Ever wonder why our inventory is so low?
Here is an explaination from Matthew Gardner, Chief Economist for Windermere Real Estate.
Here in Kootenai County we have an inventory shortage, however, our market is fairing better than many other states across the US. Most all segments of our market are performing well and most homeowners who bought at the top of the market are now in an equity position.
If you are on the fence about selling, now is a great time! Abunance of buyers, low rates, inventory shortage; all increase your odds of selling!
