Sally Stevens is a landscape painter residing in Boise, Idaho. She loves the beautiful state she lives in, and its surrounding nature inspires and feeds her art.

Sally paints in the impressionistic style, using light and shadow to capture the depth and beauty she sees in the natural world. Her paintings are an interpretation of her perspective: “ I enjoy drawing the viewer into a scene as if they were walking into the work.”

Sally is represented by Hat Ranch Gallery in Santa Fe. Follow her on Instagram @sally_stevens.

The first 3 months of the year saw a reduction in same month sales; April changed that trend. Even though we had 74% fewer properties available, we sold 14% more units in April 2021 than we did in April 2020.  Pending contracts – contracts that are executed but not yet closed – were also up 16% over the end of last April, promising the continuation of a strong market.

Although the number of properties sold in the first 4 months this year were 3% lower than the comparable period of last year, the average price was an astounding 31% higher and the median price was 28% higher for sales during that period.

One surprising continuing trend is that the price per square foot of resale homes is about 6% higher than the price per square foot of new…

Becka’s work explores the relationship between letting go and the need for control. She first grants herself permission to play with materials without being attached to the outcome. Shapes and textures form, and images are revealed to her.

With each piece of work she sees the struggle of the human spirit — to let go, be free, to play without boundaries versus the constraints of needing to control the details of life, interactions, and the manners in which we accomplish things.

Follow Becka on her website, on Facebook, and on Instagram @beckawatkinsart.

Updating the monthly statistics from the Intermountain Multiple Listing Service used to just be a rote task composed of low-energy/low thought data entry. But over the last several months, this has actually been an exciting reveal to which we look forward! The first quarter of 2021 has surprised buyers, sellers and even the agents and staff at the Pettitt Group.

It’s no surprise that the Treasure Valley is experiencing another surge of growth in the real estate industry. Much of this is likely attributed to the Covid 19 pandemic that changed the way Americans live — and the way we now “live” in our homes. With so many industries discovering the ease of sending their employees to their home offices, kitchens and living rooms to work safely, America…

This is our annual report on the Ada County housing market. You may find that other sources report slightly different results.

Significant issues of the year are:

  • housing inventory (properties available to buy as of December 31) has decreased significantly
  • in spite of the decrease in inventory, unit sales have increased
  • because of the limited inventory, prices have increased by about 14%
