May be moving to Boise

My spouse is retired and I have 3.5 yrs to go so I'm trying to transfer with my employer. We'd like to be there before the snow falls. Anyone have a realtor they could recommend?

1. Sorry, don't know anything about it, but good luck in giving a red state a little more blue.

I think liberals may be too concentrated to have the proportional effect on voting.

2. Lived there for five years

Boise is not quite what it appears to be, it's approximately 1/3rd Mormon.

Since you're in the retirement world/existing employment, it will have less effect on you, though.

First snowfall usually right after Thanksgiving but snow is rarely an issue there.

3. Need drier climate

The midwest humidity is very hard on both of us. We lived in AZ for 20 yrs, headed back to the midwest 10 yrs ago and we just have no desire to continue to suffer this horrible humidity. The housing in Boise seems more reasonable than where we are as are the property taxes, etc. We really don't want the extreme heat of the desert either so figure Boise should be somewhere between AZ and the midwest as far as climate.

4. The weather may be better but...

You may find living in a "company" town less than satisfying. Good luck.

5. My suggestion

Debbie Holmes. She's a good democrat who ran for Congress against Mike Simpson. There are lots of democrats in Idaho, we're the underdogs but we don't give up.

6. I love Boise, hope to never have to move away.

Districts 17, 18, and 19 are pretty blue!

7. Might as well move to Northern California --

 

Boise is the same thing but with less to do.

8. I live in Hailey

Boise has a lot to offer being a college town and the capital. Housing prices down but now going back up. I have thought living on northside would be ok.
