Home Owners Association – HOA
2-25-2020 by Pamela Slendorn
Most homes if they are in a subdivision come with an HOA (Home Owners Association). The HOA typically covers; Common area maintenance, parks, pools, and irrigation.

One of the great things about Southern Idaho is that despite the run up in values over the past few years, it is still possible to find good acreage property in sizes like 1, 2, and 5-acre parcels.

Acreage properties will frequently feature a shop. The challenge for the buyer is to determine the shop’s value.
Generally, shops come in two types: stick build-which is constructed like a house and frequently roofed, sided and painted to match the existing buildings on the property.

Boise is consistently one of the most popular cities featured on Livability. A beautiful, welcoming, rapidly growing city that was recently named #1 on our Top 100 Best Places to Live in America, there are tons of reasons why so many people want to know more about living in Boise.
Boise has the Boise Philharmonic. It has theater. It has a state capital and a military base. Its university has added “football powerhouse” to its already-impressive resume. The natural amenities are perhaps even more impressive than the cultural ones. Boise sits at the intersection of desert and mountains with the Boise river running through downtown.… Continue reading
