Upcoming Foreclosure Sales

Idaho Foreclosure Properties 

Below, you will see an un-official list of some upcoming Idaho foreclosure properties with the property address and original loan amount.

The unfortunate thing about purchasing Idaho foreclosures in this type of setting, is that you most often are unable to preview the property on the interior or conduct any inspections as a contingency of your purchase.  The sale cryor will also require you show evidence of funds to purchase the property by bringing a cashiers check for the total amount of your bid, even if you do not win the bid.

Please beware that some of these foreclosures in the Boise Real Estate Market may be junior lien holders and subject to the paying off of a primary mortgage.  Please check with your title officer or attorney with any questions in this regard.  This list includes Nampa homes for sale as well as Caldwell homes for sale and Middleton homes for sale and Parma homes for sale, Greenleaf homes for sale, Wilder homes for sale as well as Homes in Boise and Homes in Meridian.

These properties are broken down between Canyon County Foreclosures and Ada County Forclosures.

County Designations on Idaho License Plates

What County is that?

Idaho Counties

 

Many of you have asked me for a reference on Idaho License Plates and what those pre-fix designation mean. Well...here it is! You can now view the number and letter reference to know which Idaho county certain vehicles are from.

Keep in mind, those who have personalized plates do not have the county designations, so there's no telling from where they came!

What do all these letters mean?

CRS? ABR? GRI? What do these mean?

OK... So are Realtors just so egotistical that they have to display all those letters after their names?

Actually, these designations DO in fact have a meaning.  The most critical thing to remember is that these designations reflect a Realtor's commitment to education and a commitment to the quality of service they offer to their clients. 

Customers and clients alike, need to pay attention to these designations, simply for the fact that they represent experience and knowledge.  Our market, today, is filled with real estate sales people who have just recently passed the state exam (the minimum requirement) to assist home buyers and sellers in one of their most valuable investments.

Realtor designations also indicate areas of specialties for the agent.  Please take the time to review the following list of designations and remember, most of them require many more hours of classroom education than what is even mandatory by individual states.

Understanding Foreclosures

Unfortunately, when economic activity declines and housing activity decreases, more real estate enters the foreclosure process. High interest rates and creative financing arrangements also are contributing factors.

When prices are rapidly accelerating during a real estate "bonanza", many people go to any lengths available to get into the market through investments in vacation homes, rental housing and "trading up" to more expensive properties. In some cases, this results in the taking on of high interest rate payments and second, third and even fourth deeds of trust.

Mechanic's Liens

The Mechanics' Lien law provides special protection to contractors, subcontractors, laborers and suppliers who furnish labor or materials to repair, remodel or build your home.

If any of these people are not paid for the services or materials they have provided, your home may be subject to a mechanics' lien and eventual sale in a legal proceeding to enforce the lien. This result can occur even where full payment for the work of improvement has been made by the homeowner.
