Boise Idaho Remains One Of The Best Places To Live In The U.S.

An Introduction To Meridian, Idaho

If you love thrills and adventure, then having a house in Meridian may be ideal for you.  The difference in elevation from the mountains (7,000 ft. above sea level) to the valley floor (2600 ft) below, provides you with ample opportunities to pursue gravity-inspired winter sports such as snowboarding and skiing.  World-class ski resorts are within a one hour drive.  The three other seasons in Meridian provide plentiful outdoor activities, including water parks, biking, fishing and hunting.  If those aren't enough to get your adrenaline flowing, you can always try whitewater rafting to get your heart racing.  A house in Meridian will provide lots of excitement for you all year long.

As a real estate agent based in Meridian, I have found that the local real estate market is very exciting.  The former farming community has been transformed into a city focused on the future and is attracting hordes of newcomers.  From 1990 to 2000, the city's population tripled, and then between 2000 and 2007, it doubled.  The growth has not stopped.  This has resulted in track home builders in Meridian such as, Boise Hunter Homes, Cole Homes, CBH Homes and Hubble Homes creating several new developments with new modern homes for under $225,000 that have been designed with ample square feet at an affordable price.

There is something for every buyer at all size budgets in the Meridian MLS market.  If you are looking to buy a luxury home, you may just be able to find the ideal executive estate offering spectacular views of Spurwing Country Club up to 6000 square feet of spacious living space waiting for you to make an offer on.  If you are searching for houses in the $400,000 to $3 million price range and above, there's a good chance that we can find a perfect horse property for you.  If you're looking to buy your first home, there is a great selection of single level homes some with bonus room over the garage, ranch style houses and modified two stories home for under $225,000.  Prices and interest rates are both good.  The current Meridian real estate market may just be offering you the best home buying chance of a lifetime!

Most of Meridian's real estate development has been driven by the city's growing career opportunities and economy.  Corporate headquarters of major employers located in Meridian include Arnold Machinery, Western Electronics and United Heritage.  There is a pro-business attitude among the civic leaders here, which has helped to create a thriving and growing business sector.  Home owners in Meridian enjoy living in a city that has a solid commercial tax base.  This strong local economy protects and progresses Meridian real estate values.  Throw in Meridian's reputation for having quality schools in the mix and you have all the ingredients you need for an in demand housing market.  When you buy Meridian real estate, it is an investment for the future.

Another major draw to this area is the extensive park and recreation amenities in Meridian.  Leighton Family Baseball Complex, located in Settlers Park, has eight baseball fields that the Meridian Youth Baseball League use.  Settlers Park also offers Adventure Island Playground, complete with climbing boulders, interactive sound garden and water splash pad.  In 2009 there were 16 tournament-style horseshoe pits, two picnic shelters and two tennis courts added to the park.  A community plaza and additional tennis courts are also in the works.  The park also offers Summer Friday movie nights, where families can come out with their folding chairs and watch movies from a gigantic inflatable movie screen under the stars.  Other Meridian area parks include William Watson Park, Heroes Park and Gordon Harris Park.

Whether you are an experience real estate investor or first-time home buyer, I can help you locate the best value for whatever types of properties meet your requirements the best.  I have personally invested in Idaho real estate for years, and I can share all of the knowledge that I have acquired about buying property for future value and cash flow.  If this is your first real estate purchase, my job will not be done until you have a thorough understanding of every aspect of your real estate transaction.  I will be there to represent all of your interests from beginning to search for a property to the closing.  I am thoroughly versed in Meridian real estate trends, new construction techniques and financing alternatives.
