Here’s an interesting case study of Boise Idaho Area Homes On Acreage
After visiting this blog, one of my buyers recently contacted me about Boise Idaho Area Homes On Acreage.
During our initial consultation on the phone, we discussed the client’s needs, wants, likes, and dislikes in detail.
During that conversation, we determined that they could buy without selling first, and that they were ready to buy if we could find the right property.
They also worked with my recommended lender, Monica Davis at Synergy1 Lending, here in Eagle and secured pre-approved financing.
Their criteria included:
- Newer home.
- Three or more bedrooms.
- Single level.
- 1-5 acres.
- 2,000 to 2,500 sq. ft.
- Stainless kitchen appliances.
- Quartz or granite counters.
- Up to $500,000
Sounds reasonable, right?
I searched MLS for all of our nearby outlying areas, including Eagle, Emmett, SW Meridian, Star, Kuna, Middleton, and South Nampa.
My extensive MLS searches (in two counties) turned up only 17 listings, all of which were older manufactured homes, or older homes in poor condition.
For the first time ever, I had to tell a buyer that I had nothing matching their criteria to show them.
Our low listing inventory continues to create challenges for both buyers and their agents throughout our real estate market.
Some types of properties are extremely difficult to find in our market.
The results of working with this client revealed the challenges of finding a quality, newer home on small acreage.
I’ve experienced the same results many times while searching for homes with a shop in the past several years.
We could sell more homes if we had more available listings!
