Accelerated Reverse Auction Starts Today!

Sun Valley Log Home Most everyone is familiar with a traditional auctions.  Well, reverse auctions are a different and interesting sort of beast. As a leading and widely accepted real estate site states, “The popularity of reverse auctions in recent years has increased, as auctions in general are becoming the preferred way of buying real estate and goods of all kinds.”

As the name suggests, reverse auctions are those transactions in which the roles of buyers and sellers are reversed.  For example, en a traditional auction, most commonly known as a forward auction, buyers compete to obtain a property, with the selling price increasing as the buyers keep raising their bids in an effort to outlast each other.  A real estate reverse auction, is just the opposite.  In the case of a reverse auction, the seller steadily drops their price until they find the price point. Sellers drop their price until they reach market demand.

Aside from the distressed property sales, the “reverse auction” is essentially Read the rest of this entry »

Done Deal…Elkhorn Springs

ekkhorn springs logoI’m not kidding.  The bank owned  Elkhorn Springs condo’s are the best deal in the valley.   I just closed on one and there are only a few of them left  They have been selling like hot cakes.  Why?  Because they are priced very well, have very high end finishes and the Elkhorn Springs complex offers a very nice package to condo buyers.

Most of the units we’re completed in 2007 and 2008.  The property consists of four buildings.  Creekside Terrace North and South and Hillside Terrance North and South.  Each unit in each building has to be seen to be appreciated.  Every unit has a unique and interesting view, deck configuration and sun orientation.  Definitely not a cookie cuter project.

The price per foot of these units is exceptional and most are being offered for less than replacement cost.  There is just nothing else that comes close as far as pricing value.

The homeowner association fees are higher that other comparable units but they are structured differently.  At Elkhorn Springs, the association dues include most of the services including Read the rest of this entry »

Done Deal…301 Industrial Park Way Bellevue

light Industrial commercial property in Sun ValleyLight industrial vacant land.  Not exactly a hot bed of activity in the local real estate market.  Not too many developers (read: none) are breaking ground on new speculative projects.  Even fewer owner/users are expanding or building new facilities for their business.

Which is exactly why my client got such a great deal when he purchased this lot.

Way out Glendale Road in southern Blaine County is a nice little light industrial park called the Brown Subdivision.  It’s near Webb Landscaping, Burks Excavation and Frankin Building Supply.  It used to be next to KD Excavation and Starheat Masonry but they have left (another story Read the rest of this entry »

Done Deal…250 Cranbrook Road, Hailey

250 Cranbrook in Northridge Hailey Idaho250 Cranbrook in Hailey.  Located in Hailey’s most popular neighborhood, Northridge.

I like everything about this deal and here’s why.  The property hit the market on February 25th, 2011  at $585,000.  My clients had been seriously following the Hailey market for a long time for just the right property.  Nothing had quite fit the bill.  We dismissed this Cranbrook property because it was overpriced at $585,000.  So, we didn’t even look at it.

A few days later I was meeting them in front of a house in Deerfield.  Sitting in my car checking the “hot sheets”  on my i phone, I noticed Cranbrook had been reduced to $499,000.  Down from $585,000, which was a huge drop for just a few days after it was listed.

Needless to say, we flew over there to check it out.  And it turned out to be a great property match.  So we made an offer that same day and struck Read the rest of this entry »

Done Deal…306 Starweather

Starweather Sun Valley, IdahoAllright!  Here’s a done deal that might just be one of  the best deals so far in 2011.  306 Starweather Drive in the Starweather neighborhood in mid valley.   First of all, Starweather is, in my opinion, one of the coolest neighborhoods  in the valley.  If you want to know why, just click here.

This particular house was designed by well known local architect, Janet Jarvis and built by well known local builder, Black Diamond Builders in 2003.

What’s cool about this property is that it’s gently tucked away in a natural grove of old growth aspens and feels like it was just quietly dropped into the native landscape.  Gravel drive, stepping stone walks and very sparse landscaping.  Natural beauty surrounded by undisturbed dogwoods, aspens, cottonwoods and riparian vegetation.  Landscape money can’t buy.  Walk across the street to a private trail that leads directly to one of the best stretches of fly water in the valley.  Overall, a one acre plot of  relaxed Sun Valley style.

Inside is just gorgeous.  Step right into a Read the rest of this entry »

Done Deal. Win. Win. Win.

Hailey Idaho Commercial Real Estate and Property For Sale  Now this is a deal I like.  Not just a win/win deal but a win/win/win deal.  1141 Airport Way in Hailey.  A small, hard to find warehouse unit in the center of Hailey.  A perfect unit for an owner/user to have for their local small business needs.

This property was heading toward bank foreclosure with a local bank that I handle foreclosures for.  I was aware of the deal and was tracking its progress.

I was shooting the breeze with a good friend of mine, Paul Yelda of Rocky Mountain Appliance Service in Hailey.  (Call him for all your appliance service/repair/installation needs, they are the best.  Plus, he’s a great guy to whitewater raft with.)  He said he and his business partner and Dad, Joe, were looking for a warehouse unit for their appliance company to better warehouse and service their inventory of appliances.

Bingo.  Have I got the deal for you. We immediately drafted a Letter of Intent (LOI) to the bank that Read the rest of this entry »
