Hello

I have a new Wonderful listing in Timberland Estates just 5 minutes from downtown Eagle.
A great family neighborhood with very low HOA fees, only $800 a year which includes irrigation
for your lawn.

Here are some links to my listing and Baileys Real Estate Group offers free pick up at the airport to
your Hotel which I suggest the Eagle Garden Hilton which is in the hub of Eagle.

We love Eagle, relocated here ourselves from the Phoenix area 7 years ago. There are many excellent neighborhoods in Eagle and there is a lot of variety. One of the newest neighborhoods is called http://lionsgatesub.com/ They are almost one full acre and you can choose your own builder. If you prefer existing homes and want a little room to move then http://www.countrysideeagle.com/ or http://www.dev-services.com/ViewOurCommunities.asp?p=Redwood+Creek or the Colony or Autumn Crest or Tahoe Ridge. These are all one and two acre properties.
Hope this helps and look forward to running into you at the Jackson's getting a drink or maybe Smokey Mountain Pizza on the patio this summer!

Here's three of my favorites:

1) Two Rivers - Two Rivers is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Eagle. Most of the homes range from 3000 to 4500sf (although some are smaller/larger). Two Rivers has incredible landscaping (trees, ponds, waterfalls) and a great clubhouse with pool, basketball & tennis court.

2) The Shores - The Shores borders Two Rivers subdivision and offers many of the same amenities as Two Rivers (landscaping, ponds, clubhouse, etc.). A few of the homes in the Shores also have shops, which could provide the additional garage sq/ft you're looking for.

3) Lexington Hills- Lexington Hills was mostly built in the '90s with offers residents 40acres +/- of common area, pathways, and water features. Many of the homes back to common area and in many cases have great views. Some of the homes have been remodeled while others could still use some updating.

You can get more information on these neighborhoods and more on my website: http://www.idahorealestatecenter.com/eagle-real-estate.php

Hi Possible Relocation,
I understand what you are going through in your consideration to make a move to another area/State.
I researched the Boise/Eagle area for two years before making the move from So. California. My husband and I have been here in the beautiful town of Eagle, Idaho for 7 years now. We love it and I'll tell you why we love it. Eagle has a feeling of "town". All of your necessities are near by, even in walking or bicycling distance. The grocery store, restaurants, post office, library, golfing & Boise River Green Belt for recreation. Downtown Boise is a short car ride from Eagle. The cost of living is very fair--from home prices to Utility bills.
I live in and specialize in Residential Real Estate in Eagle and the surrounding areas. I would love to help you find the home and area that is "Best" for you. I would have to say we have a pretty terrific selection and variety of homes for you to consider.
So that I may know more about you and what you consider "Best", I would like to know more about you and your wants and desires in a property. Please e-mail me at GoToClaudia@gmail.com
I'll provide you with my business phone number and we can begin a conversation to get you in the direction of a terrific home buying experience.

I also have a "pocket listing", meaning it is not on the MLS yet, for a home that is 7,600 sf, on 1 acre of land in a desirable sub in Eagle. It offers basement with Home Theater room, exercise room, there is a very large open Chefs Kitchen with upgraded cabinetry, Wolf and Viking stainless steel upgraded appliances, Granite counter tops, hardwood flooring, Formal Dining and separate eating areas, Master on the main level, 4 other bedrooms, and 5.50 bathrooms. It also has a 1700 sf garage. Lots of upgrades. Too much to list here. I am going to go to market at $110 per sf. If this sounds like something you might want more information on then let me know.

Congratulations on your potential relocation to Eagle! I have been on relocation teams for four different franchised companies and have been transferred around the country and world myself so I would be glad to share my experiences to help you with yours!

Keep in mind that what is "best" for one person may not equate to another. What do you like "best" and then I would be glad to find communities that fit the "best" for you. One thing to keep in mind is to make sure that you don't over build or over buy for a community. It is good for the ego to have the best home in the neighborhood, but I wouldn't want to be tasked with selling it for you down the road since the other homes will bring it down to their level.

The great news is that you have the ability to look at three uniquely different options:
1) Existing homes for sale;
2) New Homes for sale;
3) Finding a lot and building a home to your definition of "best" neighborhoods and "best choices"

There are great waterfront communities that offer either river frontage or pond frontage including: Two Rivers, Lakemoor; Rivers End; etc.

For a golf course community in Eagle, you might consider Spurwing.

Lot prices have dropped significantly from their peaks (although they are increasing this year). This allows you to consider building in various communities with half acre to acre lots. For example, several homes have been built and closed this year in Castlebury West & Lakemoor in the size you mentioned and they ranged from $585K - $659,950.

Do not make your decision based on price per square foot since prices will vary based on the cost of lot, the style of the roof (reg composition shingle verses tile), architectural style, landscaping, etc. If you want a big box, I can have one built that meets code that will be over 5,000 sq. ft. with the 1.2k sq. ft. garage in Eagle for as little as $350,000 but it will look much different than what you would pay $500K for which will look much different from what you would pay $1 million for.

My rule of thumb is that if you can't find about 90% of what you want in an existing home, you should consider having one built if you can wait the 4-6 months to get what you really want. I have closed brand new homes with over 50 separate builders here in the Boise area and would be glad to assist in introducing you to some of the builders and communities.

Hope this helps!
Jim

Would you like to live on or near the Boise River? There are developments that connect to what is known as the "Green Belt", which one could ride bikes or walk along the rivers edge from Eagle to downtown Boise. Or, do you prefer to be more in the country with a little more land? Then, there is also the option to live in the hills. There are so many wonderful areas in Eagle. I have worked with many buyers relocating here from out of state. Here is a link to some reviews I have had from past clients that I worked with: http://www.zillow.com/profile/Greg-Boss/Reviews?my=y
I just did a search on the MLS and found 22 homes with 5,000 sf or more in Eagle ranging in price from $450,000 on up to a million plus. Some short sales, and bank owned properties in the mix. From $450,000 to $799,000 the average price per sf is $113. Greg Boss (208) 412-9744

Possible relocation,

I love Eagle. I grew up there when it was a small farming community. There are great neighborhoods in Eagle as in other areas of the valley. If you do decide you are moving to Eagle, you will find many areas that will fit your needs, I am sure. The best neighborhood for you will depend on your needs, wants and what type of home you are looking for. I am sure you will find something that will work. If you can give me additional information as to what you think you will be looking for, then I can send you available properties in the area and from there you would get a good idea of what is available.

Let me know if you have any other questions. I can always be reached by phone or email. I would love to help you move to my hometown.

Thank you for your time.
