Torridgirlz,

Thanks for asking this question. It will separate those agents who want to assist someone from those that only want to sell higher priced homes. As I read your question, I decided to let you check each property to see if its location was close to I-84 or not.

I searched the Intermountain MLS and came up with this list. Some may be bank-owned, or HUD-owned homes, so they each have their issues. Others may be fixer-uppers and you had not mentioned whether you were able to or even wanted to do fix-up or painting or minor cosmetic issues, so I included all of them.

I found these: http://imls.paragonrels.com/publink/default.aspx?GUID=dbe2e9…

Let me know if any of them meet your circumstances or location. If you want to schedule to see any of them, they all should be either vacant or owner-occupied, as I excluded those that were tenant-occupied.

Thanks!

While the inventory of available homes in this price range in Ada and Canyon county is extremely low- that doesn't necessarily limit your options! Are you considering this price range to obtain a specific monthly payment?

There are several financing options available to all types of buyers that would potentially give you MORE purchasing POWER- this includes but is not limited to first time home buyer grants, programs, etc. as well as Interest rate buy downs and adjustable rate mortgages.

I'm happy to help you navigate these financial waters, so you won't have to settle on your home!

It is possible to find properties to buy in the Boise area with at least 2 bedrooms and under $85k.

Did you know that there are some unique loan options that cater to first time buyers and to low/moderate income buyers to help them break the rental cycle?

I suggest teaming up with a Realtor & lender that work this niche so that you can make your hard earned dollars stretch the farthest.

Some programs help with down payment, others interest rate, others with remodels, etc.

I teach first time buyer classes so would be glad to assist!

There are 7 properties that fit the condo/townhouse part of your question. They are in Boise. As for single family homes there are a few available. Some may require some work so I would need additional information to see if you would be interested in those type of properties.

Please let me know if you have any further questions. I am here to help you navigate the real estate process.

Thank you,

Yes, it's totally possible. That's actually a pretty great list that was supplied in an earlier post. As you can see, it would take a lot of time driving around and looking at all of these properties! As an agent that's familiar with the different neighborhoods, I could help you narrow it down.

It's important to know if you are looking for an investment or something for yourself. I would guess you might want to be in a decent neighborhood too?

I'd love to help you zero in on your perfect property. 208-703-0682 or
