Residential Snap Shot

Average residential on less than 2 acres in Kootenai County continued to appreciate from this time last year. And in our smoky-skies month of August, recorded residential sales topped 690- a record! Often sellers think fall is not a good time to be on the market, but last year proved otherwise. In October-December 2017, we recorded 1127 residential sales, leaving just 7% of the homes on the market unsold during this time. Curious about your home’s value? Contact one of our agents today!
