As the owner/broker of Progressive Realty Corporation, my objective is to set the standard for my agents to follow! Call me to see the difference that nearly 25 years of local experience makes! I have at worked four major real estate franchises and always felt there was something they could improve on. Therefore, I have reverse engineered Progressive Realty Corporation based on recognizing the strengths of my previous affiliations with Realty World, Coldwell Banker, John L. Scott and Re/Max. I believe in empowering the consumer via the internet. In July 2008, I became the only Certified EPRO Trainer living in the State of Idaho for the National Association of Realtors. In this capacity, I help other agents receive their EPRO designation to prove their competence in using today's technology to help facilitate their real estate business. I welcome the opportunity to be interviewed to be your exclusive Realtor!

I want to make you the beneficiary of my nearly 25 years of experience and knowledge of the financial, investment, tax and building sides of the real estate. I am so confident that if you select me and for some reason change your mind, I will cancel our agreement if I can't resolve your conflict within 24 hours! If you are looking for an agent with a specific field of expertise that I am not proficient in, let me know and I will have one of my other agents take excellent care of you. Give me a call and see the difference my experience will make in getting you the best possible price with the least possible problems! Thank you.

I have closed brand new homes with over 00 local builders, so if we can't find the right home, let's have one built! Let me put my experience and Broker's License to work for you!

Relocating to Boise Idaho - Boise Real Estate information Moving to Boise Idaho?
I personally have been relocated around the world as an employee and as a dependent so I can appreciate your anxiety! When I was in a position to choose where to raise my family, I knew it would be in the Pacific North West, but settled on Boise and am grateful! Bogus Basin Ski Area is only 16 miles from the edge of town with night skiing till 10pm; we have 325 golfing days a year; you can catch and eat fish from the Boise River in downtown; I go deer and elk hunting less than an hour from my home; white water rafting; excellent hiking and biking trails; low crime rate; and just an overall excellent quality of life and a perfect place to raise a family! Tell me your lifestyle and I will try to help match you up with the right community here in the Treasure Valley!

How Accurate is a Zestimate?

Too many people assume if they see something generated by a computer formula or in print is has to be TRUE.  I think the last election process in the United States at least having people thinking more on the lines of "Trust But Verify".There are lots of computer Automated Valuation Models that try to determine value ranges for a home.  There are so many variables, that I don't think automation will ever put a appraisers out of work.  Heck, if a Zestimate was so accurate, wouldn't they call them Zaccurates?How would any system know about how much of a premium to put on a homes value due to the view it might have?  Maybe when it was built it had a great view, but maybe the neighbors trees grew and deleted the view?How would a computer model know if there is a dairy a half mile away and the prevailing winds draft right though the kitchen window of the home?These automated valuation models don't offer a scratch and sniff option to see if the house smells like cigarettes or cats!How would they know if a seller was over motivated to sell and that comparable sale shouldn't be used in the valuation?  How would they know if it was even an arms length transaction?Since I already said you should verify data, here is what Zillow has to say about their own accuracy ratings.  You to their website and follow these simple steps:  That will open this next page: Now we are digging into fun stuff, the fine print!When you clicked the link on their website above, it downloads the actual spreadsheet to show how THEY believe their own accuracy is per state or top metro areas. Please notice that Zillow gives themselves a 1 out of five ranking based on the following definitions:Idaho is a non-disclosure state so Zillow and other automated valuation models like it don't get enough data to start with.  Feel free to use their website if you like, but as long as you realize they are an advertising website, not the Multiple Listing Service, things will come into focus.Websites like Zillow are getting better for valuation, but check several sources including your favorite Realtor or Appraiser! Hope this helps!Jim Paulson, CRS, GRI, ePROOwner/Broker - Progressive Realty CorporationBoise, Idaho208-573-0471GoOwnIt@gmail.comJim Paulson, CRS, AHWD, EcoBroker, GRI, SRES, ePRO, SFROwner/Broker - Progressive Realty CorporationSpecializing in Boise Idaho Real Estatehttp://www.IdahoMLStours.comHttp://www.Progressive-Realty.info
