Is Summer the Best Time to Sell Your Home?

Summer is a busy time for real estate in the Treasure Valley, but is it the best time for you to sell your home? Sellers want to list their homes at the best time of the year so they can sell quickly for the best price. Summer is a convenient time for many people, long daylight hours and nice weather are good for showing off the interior of your home and relocating before school starts is ideal for families with young children. However, there are pros and cons to any season for the real estate market, and often one season will be better in one state versus another.

Spring is considered to be a wonderful time for selling a home. The weather warms up from the cold of winter, flowers and budding trees add to curb appeal, prices increase as demand starts to build, and the soft light of spring illuminates house interiors in the best ways. Since Spring is such a good time for sales, that also means that there will be more competition on the market, contractors and designers will be kept busy and potentially will be hard to schedule, and windy, stormy Spring days can make it hard to keep your home looking show-ready.

Summer has easier scheduling of contractors and less wild weather to combat. Homes sold in July and August sell faster than in any other month of the year, over 5 days quicker on average, and Summer sales have made up 40% of historical real estate sale volume. Buyer demand is high in the Summer months, and bright daylight will show off your home well into the evening. The often oppressive heat will sometimes scare off all but dedicated home buyers and make it difficult to work on keeping your home show-ready, and there will still be plenty of competition to combat, as well as many people taking vacations which interfere with showings and paperwork. However, moving is far easier in the summer because of the more predictable weather and if you have vacation days off from work, why not use them to get into your new home?

Autumn’s colorful foliage and mild lighting can bring appeal to listed homes, and there is less competition on the market as inventory drops from Summer’s peak. Homes still sell fairly fast and prices can be higher in October-November compared to other months of the year. People want to buy and sell their homes before the busyness of the holidays, but buyer interest will begin to fade by the end of the Autumn months, and there is also the constant outdoor cleanup to take into account.

Winter’s cold and harsh conditions usually mean fewer buyers are venturing out in search of a new home, but those that brave the temperatures and busyness of the holidays are committed and ready for home-buying. There is significantly less competition on the market, and holiday décor can make the interior of your home warm and inviting. Prices tend to drop in the Winter months, and homes can take much longer to sell than in other months, but with motivated buyers, there may be less waiting time after a showing until the final sale happens.

The best time to sell your home is honestly the time that works best for you and your lifestyle! If you’ve got young kids at home, Summer may be the best time, before school starts up again. Or maybe Autumn and Spring’s soft lighting and mild weather appeal to you more as you ready your house for showings. Whatever you decide, we at Treasure Valley Real Estate are more than happy to help you with the whole buying and selling process; we want to help you find the home of your dreams.

Buying Tips and Market Update for 2023?

Many home buyers, first-timers and well-seasoned alike, are struggling to understand how to best go about finding and purchasing their next home in this current real estate market. The intimidating prices, interest rates, and lack of inventory over the past few years have been too much for many home buyers to wade through; but we’re here to help you make sense of this current housing market and get the house of your dreams as stress-free as possible!

Now is a great time for buyers to start looking for their new homes! Home loan rates have improved, and buyers no longer have to worry about needing to make quick decisions and having the homes they’re interested in bought before they have a chance to submit an offer. There is plenty of time to make calculated decisions, and many housing options to choose from.

The Treasure Valley real estate market has continued to slow down over the autumn months and into winter. The inventory of homes for sale has grown, during November of 2022 inventory rose to an increase of over 42% from November of 2021. We have around 3 months of inventory on the housing market right now, and a well-balanced supply would be 5 months. We’re almost there! Houses are on the market for longer, prices are lower and the market is slower. These three things help lean the market towards being a strong buyer’s market.

Quick decisions are still necessary to make if you’re a home buyer, however; stalling once you’ve found the home you want is never a wise course of action. Go into home buying prepared, and know how much you’re willing and able to spend and what kind of home you’re looking for. Make sure you have a realistic budget in mind, and that you’re ready for the financial commitment of buying a home. Have patience and be smart, but don’t be anxious; home buying doesn’t need to be as stressful as many people make it out to be.

Having a good, trusted agent to help you walk through this adventure will help the most with buying (and selling!) homes. Experienced real estate agents know what to look for and how to help with any unexpected things that may occur with the purchase. We at TV Real Estate along with our terrific team offer our services with helping you buy the home of your dreams in this new year. We’ll will walk alongside you the whole way there and deal with whatever comes your way.

About the Treasure Valley

The Majestic Treasure Valley

Dreaming of a place where incredible skiing is just minutes away?
Where you’re a short drive from wilderness where the deer and the antelope really do play? (Not to mention elk, moose, bighorn sheep and river otters.)
Where you can see opera or live theater without searching for parking or fighting traffic?

Stop dreaming and pack your bags for a virtual visit to the Treasure Valley!

No longer just for the outdoor lover, southwest Idaho has become a haven for those seeking a better life. With mountains at your front door and rivers pulsing through the heart of vibrant communities, the Treasure Valley has everything you’re looking for.


The Treasure Valley spans the Snake River plain from Mountain Home, Idaho, in the east to Ontario, Oregon at the west. Its varied terrain includes high deserts, mountains, forests, lush farmland and river valleys. Within it you’ll find tiny communities that have changed little in the last hundred years and the vibrant capital city of Idaho, Boise, a growing, thriving commercial and business center that retains the charm of a small town.

Boise History

Boise’s trees in the high desert setting inspired French Canadian fur trappers to name the river and valley after them (Boise translates to wooded in English). The Boise valley remained merely a corridor through which emigrants passed until gold was discovered in 1862. Enterprising developers established the town to supply the many nearby mining camps, and to serve as a governmental center. A fort was built in 1863, and in 1864 Boise was made the territorial capital. Railroads arrived in the 1880’s, an irrigation system in the early 1900’s, and the rest is history.

Treasure Valley Communities

The Treasure Valley is composed of the major community of Boise with outlying communities in Ada, Canyon and Elmore counties. These include Mountain Home, home of one of the largest Air Force bases in the United States; Nampa, site of the Snake River Stampede, one of America’s top 25 rodeos; Caldwell, home to Albertson College; and the communities of Meridian, Kuna, Eagle, Star, Emmett, Weiser, Parma, Wilder, and Marsing, Idaho and Ontario and Payette, Oregon. The Boise Metropolitan Statistical area of Ada and Canyon counties has a population of 465,000.


The economic base for the Treasure Valley is diverse, including manufacturing, agriculture/food processing, medical, high tech, services, government and education. The valley is headquarters to several large employers: Albertson’s, Micron Technology, Morrison Knudsen Corporation (renamed Washington Group International). Boise Cascade Corporation (now named Boise) and the J.R. Simplot Company. Boise is also the location for the Hewlett-Packard Company’s largest and most profitable division of its 60 worldwide facilities. The Treasure Valley is also hospitable to entrepreneurs, with self-employment the fourth fastest growing industry in Idaho.


The Treasure Valley is the home of Boise State University, with an enrollment of 18,000. Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa provides undergraduate and graduate degrees to its 1500 students. In Caldwell, Albertson College of Idaho is a small, prestigious private college boasting several Rhodes scholars as graduates. Treasure Valley Community College has campuses in Ontario and Nampa. Idaho State University and the University of Idaho also maintain active satellite campuses in the valley.

Arts & Entertainment

For those who seek cultural enlightenment, the city is home to several live theater companies including the 26-year old Shakespeare Festival, Ballet Idaho, Opera Idaho and the Boise Philharmonic Orchestra. Venues such as the Morrison Center for the Performing Arts, the Boise Pavilion on the campus of Boise State University, the newer Bank of America Centre in downtown Boise and Idaho Center in nearby Nampa are host to a large number of productions including the annual Gene Harris Jazz Festival, touring Broadway stage shows and local and nationally prominent musicians.


The sports-minded can attend professional hockey (Idaho Steelheads), basketball (CBA Idaho Stampede) and baseball (Boise Hawks) events, or see any number of exciting sports in the Boise State University athletics program.


Boise’s downtown retains its vibrancy day and night. After the thriving business day ends, Boiseans find company, food, and entertainment in a growing number of downtown restaurants and clubs, many with open-air dining.

Seller Tips

Enhance Curb Appeal: First impressions matter. Invest in simple improvements like landscaping, exterior painting, and cleaning up the front yard to make your home more inviting from the curb.

Declutter and Depersonalize: Clear out personal items and excess clutter to help potential buyers envision themselves living in the space. Depersonalizing allows them to focus on the features of the home rather than being distracted by personal belongings.

Make Necessary Repairs: Take care of any visible repairs before listing your home. This includes fixing leaky faucets, repairing cracked tiles, replacing broken fixtures, and addressing any other minor issues that could deter buyers.

Stage Your Home: Consider staging your home to showcase its full potential. This may involve rearranging furniture, adding decorative accents, and creating a welcoming atmosphere that appeals to a broad range of buyers.

Highlight Key Features: Identify and highlight the most attractive features of your home, such as updated appliances, hardwood floors, spacious closets, or a beautifully landscaped backyard. Make sure these features are prominently displayed in your marketing materials.

Price Your Home Competitively: Research comparable properties in your area to determine a realistic listing price for your home. Pricing too high can deter potential buyers, while pricing too low may leave money on the table. Work with your real estate agent to find the right balance.

Utilize Professional Photography: Invest in high-quality photography to showcase your home in its best light online. Professional photos can significantly enhance the appeal of your listing and attract more potential buyers.

Market Your Home Effectively: Utilize a variety of marketing channels to reach potential buyers, including online listings, social media, open houses, and signage. Make sure your home is visible to as many prospective buyers as possible.

Be Flexible with Showings: Make it easy for interested buyers to view your home by being flexible with showing times. Accommodating potential buyers’ schedules can increase the likelihood of receiving offers.

Consider Home Inspections in Advance: Consider getting a pre-listing home inspection to identify any potential issues beforehand. This allows you to address problems proactively and gives buyers confidence in the condition of your home.

By following these tips, first-time home sellers can increase the likelihood of selling their home for the maximum value at the time of sale and have a smoother selling experience overall.

First Time Home Buyer Tips

Assess Your Finances: Understand your financial situation thoroughly before diving into the home-buying process. Calculate your budget, including down payment, closing costs, monthly mortgage payments, and other related expenses.

Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage: Prior to starting your house hunt, get pre-approved for a mortgage. This will give you a clear idea of how much you can afford and will make you a more attractive buyer to sellers.

Research the Market: Take the time to research the real estate market in your desired area. Look into property values, trends, and neighborhood amenities. This will help you make informed decisions and negotiate effectively.

Identify Your Needs and Wants: Make a list of your priorities in a home, distinguishing between must-haves and nice-to-haves. Consider factors such as location, size, layout, and features that align with your lifestyle and future plans.

Work with a Real Estate Agent: Partnering with a reputable real estate agent can simplify the home-buying process and provide valuable expertise. Look for an agent who understands your needs and has experience in the local market.

Attend Open Houses and Viewings: Take advantage of open houses and scheduled viewings to explore potential properties. Pay attention to details like the condition of the house, neighborhood ambiance, and any potential red flags.

Don’t Overlook Hidden Costs: In addition to the purchase price, factor in other expenses such as property taxes, homeowners insurance, maintenance, and potential renovations or repairs. Be prepared for these costs to avoid financial strain down the road.

Consider Future Resale Value: Even if you’re planning to stay in your new home for the long term, it’s wise to consider its resale value. Look for properties in desirable neighborhoods with good schools and amenities, as these tend to hold their value better over time.

Get a Home Inspection: Before finalizing the purchase, invest in a professional home inspection to uncover any hidden issues or potential problems. This can save you from costly surprises and provide peace of mind.

Stay Flexible and Patient: The home-buying process can be complex and time-consuming. Stay flexible and patient, understanding that finding the right home may take time. Trust your instincts and don’t settle for a property that doesn’t meet your needs.

Market Report: Autumn 2022

Fall is here, bringing cooler weather to the Treasure Valley and changes to our real estate market. The market has leveled out a little before the winter hits, and we are discovering that if the prices of homes are right, then they are selling!

The median sales price for Ada County in August 2022 was $565,000. That was down 4.2% from July and 6.6% higher than in August of last year. If your house on the market is more than $10,000 off the correct pricing, then you will not have interested buyers. Supply and demand dictate housing prices, and sellers are adjusting their prices to the current demand. Due to these changes, the median sales price dropped from the high May 2022 median of $602,250.

Many buyers are paying less than the listed price for their homes due to price reductions or agreed-upon seller concessions. There are many more options for buyers now as well. With about 2.83 months of inventory on the market right now-6,000 homes with 3,000 pending sales, the market hasn’t stopped! However a balanced market, one that favors neither buyers nor sellers, needs between 4-6 months of inventory.

Interest rates are currently higher than we’ve seen for many years at around 7%. It is important to remember that 8% is what an over-50-year historical average would be and we’re not there yet. Mortgage application submissions decreased slightly by 0.8% during the first week of September, and continuing jobless claims dropped by about 6,000 in that same week.

Despite the higher interest rates, other market conditions have improved for buyers. The lower prices, more inventory and housing options, and longer market time help buyers to be able to decide without feeling rushed. Homes sold in August 2022 were on the market for an average of 29 days, significantly longer than the average of 14 days in August 2021.

A greatly appreciated Lender at Fairway Mortgage, Traci Sansinena, has a saying: “date the rate but marry the house.” Don’t lose out on the house of your dreams or a starter home you can afford, because rates change and at some point, you’re going to be able to refinance.
