Part I: How I Help My Buyers Find Their Ideal Eagle Idaho Home !
I do a lot of research and see a lot of homes while looking for the ideal Eagle Idaho home for a buyer.
My efforts include reviewing numerous listings, drive-bys, and previewing a lot of homes to ensure that my buyers get to choose from the best of the best homes.
Here’s how I go about finding ideal Eagle Idaho homes for my buyers!
As you might expect, it’s all about . . . .
Location, Location, Location
Is the home surrounded by similar homes?
Look at the homes near the home you’re considering.
Is it generally like the other homes in the area?
Don’t buy a non-conforming home unless you want to confirm that you’re a rebel.
Is the home adjacent to vacant property?
If you’re considering a home that borders undeveloped property, find out what could be built nearby.
Understand that vacant land can get rezoned for development, and it might be a development that you won’t like.
That vacant property behind the home you’re considering won’t be as scenic and appealing when it has a WalMart on it!
Is the home located on, or near, a busy main street/road?
If the home you’re considering is on, or near a busy street/road, understand that it will probably have even more traffic in the future.
Is the home adjacent to a road that will get widened in the future?
The Eagle Area is growing rapidly.
We still have many roads that will get widened in the future.
Don’t buy a home that backs to a two-lane road that could become a four-lane road with a median in the future.
Is the home near high-tension power lines or a power substation?
Do you like EMF’s (electromagnetic fields)?
If not, don’t buy a home near high-tension power lines or power substations.
Preserve what’s left of your brain by buying a home that’s far, far away from major power lines and electrical substations.
Is the home near a fire station?
Living next to a fire station may provide peace of mind, but you will soon grow tired of hearing those sirens at all time of the day and night.
Is the home near a school?
Owners of homes located near schools often deal with traffic congestion near their home.
Those traffic issues are caused by parents delivering and picking up elementary and junior high students, as well as enthusiastic high school students with brand-new driver’s licenses.
Avoid homes near high schools if you like peace and quiet when school gets out in the afternoon 🙂
Do nearby properties slope toward the home?
Are nearby homes on higher land than the home you’re considering?
If the home you’re considering was built on land below adjacent properties, you could experience drainage issues, including runoff water draining onto your property.
