Except for growing the best potatoes in the country, the State of Idaho has been hiding under the national radar for decades. And except for actor Bruce Willis and his ex-wife Demi Moore investing tons of money in boise idaho real estate, people would know even less. Well there is one place recognizable to skiers and that’s the world famous Sun Valley Ski Resort that has trained many of the best skiers in the world.
To be successful in selling real estate in Meridian which is a bedroom community just west of Boise, you need four tools of the trade:
#1 – A valid Idaho state real estate license
#2 – Motivated buyers and sellers
#3 – Knowledge of meridian real estate
#4 – A “pushy but polite” persuasive attitude
The Boise, Idaho area is a great place in which to retire. And if the nearly 206,000 resident populations have you a bit shy in terms of a Boise Idaho real estate purchase that is an easy problem to resolve. Why not consider a hop, skip and jump down the road to Meridian where the population hovers around 78,000 and Meridian real estate prices are not nearly as challenging.
Actually, in Meridian you can find “short-sale” properties listed for sale and priced between $150,000 up to $200,000. And since Meridian is the second-largest city in Ada County, “short-sale” homes have been the norm in Meridian real estate for some time. That said together with your realtor, you might be able to cut yourself a nice deal.
