How important is a new home to you? Buying a Home in Boise Idaho. Main Idaho Real Estate Insights
In many ways, buying a new home is like buying a new car. Boise Idaho is a popular place to move and obviously finding a new home is an important decision but just like cars, there is a lot of market segmentation. To find a home for sale in Boise that meets your requirements is like finding a car, which one do you like the best?

Boise Idaho HomesThere are many factors in deciding which home is for you but at the end of the day, it is feelings that drive the buying decision, similar to buying a car. It is not about the most practical decision nor the cheapest priced home available. If it were, there would be a lot more trailer parks and the size of a home would be much smaller. Homes are about comfort, liffestyle and how it makes you feel. While function and form are part of it, feelings overide logic.

Buying a home is filled with emotion. For some, they may see something that reminds them of the home they grew up in. For others it is about pride and having something that displays success. Others want more function and get a large garage for toys or a designated home theater room. While we can argue that these are about function, I believe that it involves more feelings than most realize. One piece of evidence I would submit is the master bathroom. This is a portion of the home where most people spend thousands of dollars but it is something that most never see!

In a world where the home is becoming more and more a part of our lives, not only in terms of what we do and where we spend out time but with all the technology and business of life, plus the poor economy overall, many are staying home more and ant to enjoy their time more.

Re:How important is a new home to you? Buying a Home in Boise Idaho.
As a Realtor and real estate broker in Boise, I am usually making a lot of car/home analogies as well. I try to take some of the emotion out of it and ask things like "if your next home was a vehicle, what kind would it be"? That tells me if they are looking for the family station wagon, SUV or sports car model in a home.

Also, when purchasing an existing home, I tell them the home inspection is like inspecting a used car. It points out issues, but you can't expect the seller to rotate the tires, change the oil, and repaint for you after you have already negotiated price and terms.

I didn't realize that I hadn't logged in prior to making the previous post and the Idaho Real Estate Commission requires that I identify myself and my company in my communications with the client.
