Moving Soon? Popular Northwest Communities, in Which We Build, For Outdoorsy People

If nature is your paradise, then the Northwest is calling for you. Here in the Northwest, nature is not only abundant, but it’s a place where spending time outdoors in our gorgeous surroundings is a strong community value. Furthermore, the Northwest has some of the most outdoor-centric communities in the entire country. Here are some great choices in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho that you may want to consider for your future home, especially if you’re looking for popular northwest communities for outdoorsy people.


Bend, Oregon

Bend is the ideal place for someone who wants to enjoy some of the luxuries of a big city (you’ll be wowed by the food and art here), but also wants to escape into the hills for some R&R on a regular basis. With the Cascade mountains nearby, Bend is equipped for nearly every outdoor activity you can imagine. No matter what your outdoor passions are, you’re almost guaranteed to find prime opportunities just a short drive away.

Spokane WA Great city for Outdoorsy people

Spokane, Washington

Spokane is a city with a long list of accolades including an excellent school system and inexpensive cost of living. It’s small enough to where people know their neighbors, but big enough to have drawn in a wide array of restaurants and entertainment options that you’re sure to love. Of course, Spokane is close to endless outdoor recreation opportunities in the mountains, on lakes and in rivers. And with Coeur d’Alene, ID not far away, Spokane offers close access to all that northern Idaho has to offer.

Moving to Boise from California what to know

Boise, Idaho

Speaking of Idaho, not only does Boise have more days of Sunshine than either of the two cities listed above, but it also offers a slightly slower pace of life, which the outdoor lover may appreciate. For those who love trails for hiking and mountain biking, the 190-mile Ride to Rivers system is a huge draw. Skiing options are nearby, as are parks and bodies of water for numerous other active adventures. Boise is one of the fastest growing areas in the Northwest, and for good reason.

New Homes in Sisters Oregon

Sisters, Oregon

Similar to Bend, Sisters is nestled in the heart of the Cascades but it has a unique, western feel. If you love the outdoors, but don’t love crowds, Sisters is the place for you. You’ll love Historic Western Town, the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, the Sisters Folk Festival and the Sisters Rodeo. The city offers excellent dining and entertainment options as well, and offers quick access to loads of outdoor recreation opportunities such as hiking, rafting, fly-fishing and camping.

Moving to Idaho from California Here’s What you Should Know

Moving to Boise from California what to knowMoving to a new state can be both exciting and a little unnerving. As you weigh your options of where to go and what life will hold for you next, Boise should be at the top of your list. Boise is not only a beautiful place to live that could lead to an improved quality of life. Here are some top reasons why a move to Idaho, especially the Boise area, from California may be the right choice for you.
The Cost of Living in Boise is Significantly Lower than in California
One of the top reasons that you may be thinking about saying goodbye to California and relocating to Boise is that the cost of living in Boise is significantly lower than the cost of living in California. In fact, California is on the list of the seven most expensive states in the country in which to live. And it’s not just housing that’s more expensive in California; food, gas, and taxes are also pricier in California.
Boise, on the other hand, is a much more affordable. While the average cost of living in Boise is slightly higher than the U.S. average, housing is still plenty affordable, and food and utilities are ranked as less expensive than U.S. averages. If you’re moving to Boise from California, the savings on housing alone can make a huge difference. If you sell your house in California and come to Boise, you may be able to pay cash for a brand new – never been lived in before – home by Hayden Homes.
Improved Quality of Life
While California is beautiful, it’s also extremely busy with people, cars, and often in the summer, polluted by smoke from wildfires and CO2 emissions from vehicles and industrial operations. When you move to Boise, you may be able to experience an improved quality of life. In Boise, you may be able to walk or bike to work, or go for a jog before your busy day starts because of the time you may save with less congested commuting. On your days off, you can get to the mountains or to a trail in a matter of minutes, enjoying fresh air, blue skies, and plenty of year-round sunshine. In Boise, there are dozens of indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy, from mountain biking and indoor tennis to fine dining and live concerts. With less traffic to navigate, you’ll have more time to recreate, shop, dine, wine taste, spend time with family, and invest in your own health and well-being.
Idaho Ranks Among the Happiest and Best Places to Live/Retire
In several recent surveys, Idaho has been called out as a great place to live and/or retire. The state not only ranks among the happiest, but also one of the best places to retire. In a study conducted by WalletHub, they compared 50 states on multiple dimensions and Idaho ranked sixth in happy factor and first for community and environment (read article).  If that wasn’t enough to convince you, especially if you are ready to retire, in another study conducted by Forbes Boise ranked in the top 10 for best places to retire! With it’s low crime rates, high ranking in walkability, bicycling, and volunteering – it’s no wonder this is such a popular place in which to move.

Over Half of Homebuyers consider new homes : 3 TOP Reasons Why

A study titled “Consumer Housing Trends Report 2017” published by Zillow Group explored the ways that those living in America think about where they live, including how and where they buy and rent. We wanted to provide a summary of some of that data, focusing on what’s drawing homebuyers to new homes. Three of the biggest factors that influence new home buying include location, appealing features, and income.

Statistics and reasons behind homebuyers flocking to new homes
What We Know About Homeowners vs Homebuyers

First, a look into what we know about homeowners in America, including things like their reported ethnicity, marital status, income level, and more.

The Zillow report explains that the majority of homeowners are Caucasian (76 percent) and married (68 percent). The median income for the average homeowner is just over $62,000 a year.

Most homeowners purchase a new home as an investment, and some even view their home as a “reflection of who they are personally.” Nearly 90 percent of homeowners say that they have no plans to sell their home within the next three years. What’s more, nearly 50 percent live in the first home that they purchased.

As a note, the demographics of current homeowners and homebuyers are different. The report explains that the average homebuyer in America today is young and educated, and that the annual household income amongst homebuyers has increased to over $87,000.

Why buyers choose new homes

Things that Draw Homebuyers to New, Never-Before-Lived-In Homes

So, we know that homeowners want to invest in a home as part of their financial plan, and want to live in their home, but why do some people choose brand new homes over older homes?

When looking at homebuyers’ wants and needs, we’ve found some key takeaways. Some of the key wants and needs of homebuyers today include:

  • Air conditioning (which was rated as being more important than a yard or patio)
  • Safety
  • Ample parking
  • Great bathrooms (58 percent say that the preferred number of bathrooms is a requirement)
  • Location
  • Appealing kitchens (preferred finishes for countertops, flooring, etc.)
  • Energy efficient appliances

Location is one of the most important features in a home for a potential buyer, with things like proximity to work, friends and family, and a preferred school district making a big difference. As stated above, safety – which is dependent upon location – is also a big priority. Whether or not public transportation is in place is key, too, with almost 50 percent of buyers saying that proximity to public transportation matters to them.

A huge thing to note is that over half of homebuyers are considering new construction homes as opposed to older, already existing homes. 43 percent say that this is because of the desirable location of new construction homes, and 39 percent say that appealing features (like custom finishes and energy efficient appliances) make them want a new home. Those who make more money are more likely to buy a brand new home, with 65 percent of buyers who make over $100,000 per year considering brand new homes.

Meridian has a lot to offer everyone from people who are just starting out to those who are more established.

The population in Meridian is just under 100,000, although this number is a huge growth from five years ago – in fact, population in Meridian has grown nearly 25 percent over a five-year time period. The growth – which is more than five times that of the U.S. population growth rate – can be attributed to the fact that Meridian has a super strong economy, a strong yet reasonably-priced real estate market, a low poverty rate, and a low rate of violent crime.

In terms of the economy, the total employment in the city increased 8.7 percent over a recent two-year period, and that in 2016, only 3.3 percent of the workforce in Meridian was unemployed, a number lower than both the statewide and national averages.

As far as crime goes, the violent crime rate in Meridian is 109 incidents per 100,000 people. This number is less than one-third of the national average.
