For Sale Signs Dot the North End
September’s real estate market is looking more like a spring market. Everyone always talks about spring being the quintessential time to get your house on the market, people wanting to move during the summer months before children head back to school and I always respond people move year round. And here we are in what are typically the slowest couple weeks of the real estate year, back to school and the last summer hooray, and suddenly for sale signs are popping up like a quickly spreading rash along the iconic tree lined streets of Boise’s north end. What the heck? In the past 3 day 13 new signs have dotted the landscaped, 39 in the past 2 weeks, 330 properties total available for the taking. Okay, that may not sound like a lot to the casual observer but to someone shopping this little area it’s bonanza time, the mother lode of choice with home available in every possible style and every possible price range. I have lived in the Boise’s north end 22 years watching the ebb and flow as both a resident and as a Realtor; there are houses that appear and reappear on the market every couple years and others only generationally. Are we in the generational phase? I cannot believe the choices available, homes for which I have never seen a sign planted in the yard before are suddenly spouting ‘new owners needed signs’…wow it’s a great time to be a buyer!
