The Windermere Report: Coeur d’Alene MLS, North Idaho Real Estate Market Review for 2011

Dear Friends,

We thought you would appreciate this information about last year’s Real Estate Market in North Idaho.  Here is the annual Windermere Market Review.

We would LOVE to hear from you!

We fear that our clients and friends may think we “only” want to hear from you when you are ready to buy or sell real estate.  Not True!   We truly enjoy all the friendships we have made through the years, and would just love a chance to “catch up”.

Please call or email us, or even stop in the office.  Tell us about your children, grandchildren, pets.  Help catch us up on “you”.

Also, if you haven’t yet heard, we have a NEW PUPPY.  Well…he’s not so “new” these days.  We adopted “Trakker” in September.  He’s quite a perky, energetic, friendly little fellow.  He would enjoy meeting you.  And to tell the truth, we like to “show him off”.  He’s our “baby”.

Anyway, if you have any questions about information you read in this report, we would also be happy to help you sort it all out as well.

As always, we

  • treasure your friendship,
  •            value your  business, and
  •                        will work hard for your referrals. 

 

Looking forward to hearing from YOU!

~ Randy, Christy & “Trakker”

US News: Post Falls Named one of 10 Best Affordable Mountain Towns for Retirement

There you have it!  USNews.com has discovered what the rest of us have known all along.  This time, Post Falls has been recognized in the Top 10 Most Affordable Mountain Towns for Retirement.  Below are excerpts from the full article:

10 Best Affordable Mountain Towns for Retirement

These places offer scenic views and groomed slopes at economical prices.

By Emily Brandon

Posted: July 12, 2010

…To find this and other low-cost mountain towns, U.S. News fired up our Best Places to Retire search tool. We looked for places that offer access to plenty of skiing, trails, and wildlife, while still providing affordable housing and a reasonable cost of living. We also used the Onboard Informatics data to screen for other retiree-friendly characteristics, such as access to healthcare and a low crime rate…

Few aspiring retirees have enough saved to buy a retirement home in Aspen or Lake Tahoe. But if you’re willing to look beyond the most well-known ski resorts there are mountain towns that offer scenic views and well-groomed slopes at far more affordable prices. In Salt Lake City, the host city for the 2002 winter Olympics, the average home sale price has dropped by 11.92 percent since last year. And in Bend, Ore., average housing prices decreased by a whopping 17.62 percent since 2009. Redding, Calif. and Post Falls, Idaho have also experienced recent drops in average housing prices, which could mean bargains for newcomers. …

Check out these 10 affordable places to retire in the mountains:

Blacksburg, Va.

Bend, Ore.

Boone, N.C.

Bozeman, Mont.

Burlington, Vt.

Colorado Springs, Colo.

Fayetteville, Ark.

Post Falls, Idaho

Redding, Ca.
