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:

Since 2010 housing experts have talked about the “Missing Middle” in housing supply. These homes would fill the gap between multi-family housing and typical single-family homes on quarter acre lots. These homes are typically smaller and clustered closer together than what we’ve seen in many neighborhoods over the past half century.

To be desirable, these Missing Middle homes need to designed to fit in a neighborhood filled with other single-family homes, and they need to have the amenities and luxuries that buyers want.

Riverwood Homes has 6 home models that fill this Missing Middle. Ranging from 1,415 to 2,510 square feet, these homes have all our typical features like soft-close cabinets, walk-in showers, walk-in pantries, under cabinet lighting, EV outlets, and a ton of energy saving features. These homes offer our livable luxury and meet the needs of a group of home buyers that have been overlooked in recent years.
