We are experiencing a problem in the Treasure Valley, what we have going on here is a sellers market. It's not just a sellers market it is a mega sellers market. Now is your opportunity to help and be part of the solution. The only way to cure this situation is for more people to sell there homes, call me to day at 208-996-6507 to make your contribution to help balance the market.

I know you are likely hearing this from every Realtor® in the the Treasure Valley, but home buyers just *CANNOT* find homes. It has been a hot market but in the last two weeks has really turned up the heat. This is the current reality, when a new house hits the MLS it's gobbled up faster than Grandma's apple pie. It's an all out dog fight, buyers are crying and tossing $$$ bills at the sellers. Buyers are bidding above asking price and sellers are getting multiple offers in the first 24 hours. You should sell your house if the thought has even crossed your mind for one single millisecond. 

To help make it easier, here are some ways to say goodbye to your home - How To Say Goodbye

What else besides the house affects the value?

Some the features that increase property values are obvious—like a remodeled bathroom, a modern kitchen, or a sought-after neighborhood. But here are a few features and circumstances you have not have realized can affect property values.

1. The neighbors: Not every neighborhood or community has an HOA that can keep the neighbors from going overboard with decorations or neglecting to care for their home. Homes adjacent to crazy neighbors can potentially be undervalued.

2. Trendy groceries and coffee: Recent statistics suggest that if your home is a short walk from popular grocery stores like Whole Foods or coffee chains like Starbucks, it can actually appreciate faster than the national average.

3. Mature trees: A big beautiful tree in the front yard is enviable, and it’s not something that can be easily added to any home. Homes with mature trees tend to get a little boost in value.

4. Parking: This isn’t too much of an issue if you live in the suburbs or in a rural area, but residents in dense cities can have real problems with parking, and homeowners might need to rent a spot just to guarantee a place to park each night. That’s why having guaranteed parking in urban areas will raise property values.

5. The front entrance: First impressions matter to buyers—many will cross a home off their list within 10 seconds of stepping through the front door. An appealing front door, a friendly entryway, and a functioning doorbell are all necessities for getting top dollar.
