Happy Spring! The weather is showing signs that spring has finally sprung on the Palouse. Speaking of spring… Team Idaho is working diligently to become greener! I recently obtained my GREEN designation through the National Association of REALTORS after completing 18 hours of coursework designed specifically for REALTORS®. The courses were created in collaboration with a multi-disciplinary team of industry experts from across the country to help designees gain comprehensive knowledge of green homes and buildings, with a special focus on issues of sustainability with regards to real estate. Courses were designed to help deepen students’ understanding of what makes a property green, as well as helping clients evaluate the cost/benefits of implementing green building features and practices. I am not an expert, but I did learn a lot and I would absolutely love to share share some easy tips on how to live greener. If you would like a head-start, check out some of our local resources.

Our local inventory of existing homes is low, but rising quickly as the weather warms up. If you know of anyone contemplating putting their home on the market, now is an ideal time, considering the minimal competition. We have many buyer inquiries indicating it will be an early market again this year. Last year we saw overall growth in residential sales with Moscow showing 16% higher than 2012, and this is sure to increase as 2014 unfolds. The Team Idaho 2013 market trends packet has full details.

Have a great rest of the month, and as always, I appreciate you our loyal customer, and would welcome any buyer and seller referrals you may have.
