“Granting” Opportunities

NAR (National Association of REALTORS®) grants help REALTORS® make differences in their communities.  In January of 2016, the Idaho REALTORS® challenged each of their local associations to take advantage of a variety of grants that are available through the National Association of REALTORS®.  Grants “granted” associations opportunities to do many things throughout Idaho. View the image with this post to see how those grants were used throughout Idaho.

Don’t let generic data limit your housing search.

When searching for properties online, you may need to find a home to fit your family, something you can afford, you may have special exceptions, and need to see all the houses that are available that meet your criteria.  Depending solely on generic data may filter out homes in your area that would otherwise be perfect for you.  An expert in your market like REALTOR® Kim Cooper of Select Brokers LLC can help you find the right home for you and your family and broaden your search beyond just what you may find with generic data.

How does big data target you?

We live in an information-era where companies are able to compile a great deal of data about people based on their web browsing habits, social media usage, location, shopping trends online, and more.  By tracking this information, some real estate websites may already be using “big data” that knows the cars you drive, your age, relatives in the area, hobbies, your job, marital status, age of your kids, move history, and other pertinent facts. But just because they may think they have all the information about you doesn’t mean that they know what home is right for you or everything about the area where you are searching.

Instead of exclusively using the Internet and online resources to find your home, work with REALTOR®, Kim Cooper, to find the right home for you as he knows the North Idaho market and can talk with you personally to discuss your actual buying needs.  Please contact REALTOR® Kim Cooper of Select Brokers LLC today if you are looking to buy a home in Coeur d’Alene or the North Idaho area.
