Its a poorly kept secret that Boise real estate prices are a bit soft, and Boise Idaho short sales have driven them downward. Boise Idaho short sales and other lender-mediated listings are helping to put a downward pressure on average home sales prices, thanks to aggressive pricing by banks who are now showing a willingness to negotiate. In many cases, lenders have “pre-approved” short sales, meaning they have already agreed to take anything above a agreed-upon price that is less than what is owned on the property.

Boise Short Sales Create Buyer Opportunity

Right now, the Idaho short sales market is brimming with opportunity for first time home buyers and real estate investors alike. How long will this window of opportunity remain open? No one knows how many more Idaho short sales listings will hit the MLS in the coming weeks, but one thing is certain; as this type of inventory begins to dwindle, prices will inevitably go up. They very well might go up anyway, as real estate in Boise has proven itself to be an excellent long term investment, thanks to a beautiful location, great schools, and the high quality of life that residents enjoy.

Boise Idaho Short Sales and the Economy

Home ownership usually is one of your biggest responsibilities or investments. Most home buyers enter enthusiastically into a mortgage with every intention to pay on time, every month. In past times, Boise Idaho short sales were the exception rather than the rule; it was hard to imagine that home values would not continue to soar and the economy would not grow. However, the recent economic downturn has created market conditions that are creating Boise short sales listings.

Personal Factors

But then something happens that causes turmoil in your life. For instance...after years of employment, your company suddenly goes bankrupt leaving families without a source of income. Or possible an accident that leaves a husband disabled and unable to earn a decent income to support his family. Many Idaho short sales have resulted from catastrophic personal events. 

One of the worse scenarios: What happens when the major bread-winner of a family dies suddenly?

The bills begin to pile up rapidly and before a person realizes it, they’ve missed one, then two payments with no way to bring the account current. What happens when catching up is virtually impossible? Does that make foreclosure inevitable? Not necessarily. There are other options. Many home owners in these sorts of situations are considering Boise Idaho short sales as viable alternatives. How will you know when to short sale a home?
