We have locked a 5.625% interest rate for any well qualified buyer who closed one of our move-in ready homes by November 25th! This 30-year fixed interest rate is far below prevailing market rates (6.8% at the time of this blog post). This low rate is available only through our preferred lender, Homebridge Financial, with loan officer Mark Onnen. Please visit one of our communities today to discuss this financing opportunity with one of our sales agents!

According to a recent article published by Houseopedia.com, over 80 percent of prospective home buyers start searching for a home online. The only surprising thing about that statistic is that the percentage is so low.

 

But beginning a home search online is very different than trying to do it yourself instead of using a real estate agent.

 

Agents are experts in housing, they’re current on the legal requirements of the transaction, and are professional negotiators. And don’t forget the value of their professional networks. Inspectors, lenders, title companies, and even reputable builders and contractors. If you’re moving to a new area, this expertise becomes even more invaluable.

 

One last thing, it doesn’t really save you money to buy a house without a real estate agent. Since they’re typically paid by the home seller, you’re not paying for those services anyway.

 

There are a ton of agents out there and choosing one can be a little overwhelming. So ask around for a good recommendation. We recommend the teams below in Boise and the Tri-Cities:

Whether you are considering modifying your existing yard, or you have the opportunity to start from scratch, here are some tips to help you make it perfect!

1. Research plants before you buy them. Does the plant need sun? Shade? How much water does it need? Does it need alkaline or acidic soil? How big does this plant get? Does it spread? Even better than turning to the internet is to ask local nursery staff--they are the ones who seem to have the best local knowledge. It takes time to do the research, but it is better than planting something only to have it die on you that same year, or to plant something that will get too big or take over your yard.

2. Plant a mix of evergreens and deciduous shrubs. Deciduous, often flowering, shrubs look fantastic during the growing season, but dead during winter. So to keep your yard from looking all dead during winter, include some evergreens in your mix, such as Slowmound Mugo Pine, Bird Nest Spruce, Euonymous, Blue Chip Juniper, etc. that will stay green all winter.

3. Avoid obvious patterns and straight lines in your yard. Our human tendency is to order our environment, but when we overly manipulate our yards to where they look particularly unnatural, the ability of the plants to give us prolonged interest and restorative relief is diminished. Take the time you would have spent shearing your shrubs into geometric shapes and use that time, instead, to recline in your hammock and watch the bees gather nectar, the birds socialize, and the leaves flutter in the wind. You'll feel more recharged and at harmony with the world.

Let us know if you have any landscape questions or would like more tips! It's time to get your fingers dirty!

We just reduced the price of our Coronado floor plan (2,900 sq ft) at 22876 Aura Vista Way in Caldwell, located at the Timberstone golf course. This house is only $799,900, which is just $276 per square foot, even with a massive 3-car garage on a 3/4 acre lot!  The east-facing back yard offers shade in the evening, and the front porch overlooks the 3rd hole of the golf course. The home has three bedrooms, a den, and a large bonus room.
