Strong Spring Market Encourages More Ada County Home Sellers


Ada County home prices are typically the highest in June, July, and August each year, based on monthly averages going back to 2004. Homes that sell in these months typically go under contract between April and July, as it takes on average 30-60 days from an accepted offer to get to the closing table.

Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $100,000. If you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney?
