Crane Creek Country Club Spotlight

Are you looking to purchase real estate near your favorite country club? Or are you relocating to the Boise area with the golf resort lifestyle in mind?
 
With Boise’s temperate weather, and desert landscape, the Boise area is the perfect climate for golfers. With over ten courses just in the Boise area alone, there are plenty of options for resort style living – Crane Creek being one of our favorites.
 
REAL ESTATE
 
The homes near Crane Creek Country Club are in the Highlands neighborhood, located between Bogus Basin Road and the Camel’s Back Reserve. Just ten minutes from downtown Boise, the Highlands area is perched on top of the Boise foothills. Many homes have panoramic views of the city and country club, making the neighborhood highly desired for both golfers and non-golfers alike. Land prices in the Highlands neighborhood range from $300k – $900K while homes start at an average price point of $1.5M. Being a homeowner in this area is a luxury in the city of Boise. Many residents enjoy the dramatic city views, take personal golf carts from their garage to the golf course, enjoy frequent family dinners at the club, and are only ten minutes to downtown – a lifestyle you can only get with very few homes in the Valley. If you are looking for more information or have any questions regarding Highlands real estate near CCCC, contact us!
 
THE COURSE
 
HOLES: 18
PAR: 72
YARDS: 7,071
 
Crane Creek Country Club, nestled in the Boise Foothills, is an 18-hole course located just minutes north from Downtown Boise. As it is tucked in the foothills, the course has a neighborhood feel with expansive views, making for a very welcoming club for Boise residents. 
 
Designed by Bob E. Baldock in 1963 and redesigned by David B. Druzisky in 2017, the course is challenging with gorgeous mature trees and beautiful undulating terrain. It has tight fairways, lightning quick greens and a canyon that cuts through the back nine holes featuring rolling bent fairways that traverse their way past fairway bunkers. The course is also known for its excellent turf conditions and expertly manicured greens. While not in plain sight, Crane Creek prides itself in preserving and enhancing Boise’s wildlife habitat, earning the title of a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, making it one of the 10% of clubs in the nation to have achieved this commitment. 
 
 

 
 
THE CLUB
 
We all know that joining a country club comes with more perks than just golf. Crane Creek is home to many other luxury amenities that are worth considering when looking at country clubs in the Boise area.
 
CCCC also features an Olympic-sized saline-based swimming pool, complete with a diving board and poolside food and beverage service. Members can lay by the pool, order delicious salads or smoothies and recreate or relax. The Poolside Grill offers everything from giant ice cream cones for kids to some of the best burgers in town. For swimmers outside of leisure, the club also offers private swim lessons, adult lap swimming, H20 Fit Class and is home to the Crane Creek Swim Team.
 
Interested in tennis or pickleball? Crane Creek offers both indoor and outdoor courts for tennis players of all levels. Take advantage of the club’s adult, senior and mixed leagues, weekly clinics for juniors and social events. If you are looking to take your skills to the next level, you can also utilize the tennis pros that run USTA Team Clinics year-round.
 
THE CLUB’S FUTURE VISION
 
The members have come to a majority vote to expand the clubhouse to enhance the experience of the club’s members and guests. With the support of its members, CCCC will be moving forward with an addition of a three-story annex. The annex will allow the ability for the club to expand its outdoor seating for dining, devote an indoor court to the popular pickleball, and increase the size of the fitness center and locker rooms. Details are still being finalized, but if you would like an update on this plan, please feel free to reach out to us. 
 
TOP TIPS FOR BUYING LUXURY REAL ESTATE IN BOISE GOLF COMMUNITIES: 
 

  • PLAY A PRACTICE ROUND. As you are deciding on which course to join, it is important to get out and play a practice round at the golf courses you are considering. While all clubs will have wonderful courses, the communities will differ in slight ways. Consider what you find to be of highest priority. Is it the course itself? The amenities? The social events and members? Once you narrow those down, it will help hone in on which community will best suit you.
  • EAT DINNER AT THE CLUB. Not only do many clubs have phenomenal golf, many of them also have great cuisine and dining. When you sign up to be a member at a club, it becomes a place you ultimately spend significant time at. Grab dinner with a few members, meet the staff and experience what it would be like to be a member. As you hope to invite guests to the club and have family meals often, it is important you like their menu and the dining experience. 
  • BE PATIENT WHEN IT COMES TO HOMES ON THE MARKET. Some of the best homes in a country club community don’t come on the market often. Don’t rush your purchase. Instead, narrow down your priorities when it comes to the style, price point and amenities of a home you are looking for. Once the right one comes on, you will be more confident in your decision.
  • FIND A LOCAL REAL ESTATE AGENT WITH EXPERIENCE IN THE COMMUNITY. Many real estate professionals in the country club community will know of homes in the area before they hit the market. It will be important to work with someone who has sold homes in the community to best help advocate and advise you start to finish. We have extensive experience in country club communities and would be happy to be a resource for you.

Winery Club Tour – Our Picks For Wine Clubs In The Boise & Garden City Area

 
“America’s Next Great Wine Region” has been said to be the Snake River Valley. Thus, making Boise and the surrounding Treasure Valley a rising hot spot for wine connoisseurs.
 
Not only are there plenty of good wineries around town, many Boise wine clubs cannot be beat! Many local wineries have phenomenal wine club offerings that are not only perfect to join but to also give as gifts. If you are looking for a wine club in the Boise area and can’t decide on which one, here is a list of a few of our favorites.
 

 
BOISE 
HYDE PARK FINE WINES – NORTH END, BOISE
 
Hyde Park Fine Wines is located on 13th Street in the heart of the historic North End district in Boise. This cute shop has a cozy ambiance, making for the perfect place to meet friends for a glass of wine. Sit outside next to the outdoor fire pits with your dog, or head inside to the library of wines from floor to ceiling. 
 
If you are looking for a particular wine – you have come to the right spot. Owner, Scott McCoy, is the most knowledgeable and helpful wine aficionados there is. Oh, and a sidenote – he is also hilarious and makes great reels on Instagram. For a laugh, check them out here.
 
You can search for wine by region, varietal, style, or occasion. The wine shop does not serve food but does encourage guests to bring in their own food if they so choose. They will even supply the flatware! You can also shop online in a library of over 800 wine options or have the wine locally delivered. 
HYDE PARK FINE WINES’ WINE CLUB: 
 
For only $65/month, club members will receive a selection of three wines from a different country. McCoy will choose the bottles from top-tier products that represent three distinct appellations. He will personalize each subscription box with your name on it as well as a description of tasting notes, history of the wine selection, pairing suggestions and vintner stories. 
 
Once a month you will also receive a FREE tasting flight, wine pickup party and 15% of all bottles in the store and online. We love this wine club, because it gives locals a chance to try wines that they otherwise might not have. We also love that the owner makes the club feel very personal, and he is known for choosing the BEST wines.
 
If you haven’t checked out Hyde Park Fine Wines, you must! You won’t be disappointed. For more information, visit their website. 
 

 
FORK’S RESTAURANT – DOWNTOWN BOISE 
 
Fork Restaurant, located on 8th Street, in the center of Downtown Boise is a “sustainable” restaurant with a “loyal to local” pledge, a commitment that the restaurant has made to source their key ingredients from local Boise and Northwest farmers, ranchers, bakers, distillers, brewers, producers and cheese makers.
 
FORK WINES’ CLUB: 
 
In 2020, the local restaurant discovered the hype around wine increased (cough* COVID cough*), introducing ‘Fork’s Essential Wine Club’ with three different membership levels. All the wines will be sourced from Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, to align with the local pledge to keep things local or regional. Fork has been given the ‘Award of Excellence’ by Wine Spectator nine years in a row – so we trust they know they know a thing or two about wine.
 
Fork offers three different clubs, including the Select, Choice and Prime – all offering different options for you or a special someone. 
 
Depending on the tier, receive a minimum of 3 bottles per quarter with a $65/year membership fee. All wines will come with tasting notes with suggested food pairing directly from the Fork’s chef. For your club membership, you can choose between an all red package or a blended package of 2 red and a white. When you dine at the restaurant (which is superb), also enjoy 5% off bottles of wine while you are there.
 
This is one of our favorite wine clubs due to the restaurants commitment to supporting local. For more information, visit their website.
FRANKLIN HOUSE – BOISE NORTH END
 
Franklin House came to be after two local friends sharing a dream of updating old homes. When one of Boise’s oldest (what used to be) “ice house” became available, they jumped on the opportunity to restore a corner home, built in 1896, on the corner of 15th and Franklin. 
 
The house features five bedrooms, two with private hot-tubs and four bathrooms, that are available to book for overnight stays. It is such a fun way to stay in the heart of Boise, while not having to stay in a hotel. The two owners have transformed the backyard into a beer garden, available for guests – featuring hammock swings, fire pits, great selection of wines and rotating taps.
 
FRANKLIN HOUSE’S WINE CLUB:
 
This is one of our favorite wine club options in the Boise area because it is one of the most affordable option in the area. For just $35/month members will receive expertly curated wines from all corners of the world. Depending on the club you choose to join, you will receive one to two bottles monthly, with access to member events, 10% discount on all backyard beverage purchases, and one of our favorite perks – 20% discount on one Franklin House room booking per year. Can you say a steal?!
 

 
GARDEN CITY
 
COILED
 
Coiled, located in Garden City, just outside of Boise, can be found nestled along the Boise River. The winery is named in honor of Idaho’s first grape-growing appellation, the Snake River Valley. Coiled’s visitors are encouraged to visit the winery to see where the wine is made, while also enjoying the beautiful setting along the river. Guests can also sample their offerings in the inviting and elegant setting of Coiled’s tasting rooms.  
 
COILED’S WINE CLUB
 
Coiled’s Wine Club is perfect for those who want to have flexibility when it comes to their wine selection. Choose between the Monty Python (6 bottles twice per year) or the Snake Charmer (aka: “The Full Monty” with 12 bottles twice per year) club. Both clubs allow you to choose the wines, receive 10 – 15% discount on purchased wines, have access to limited production wines, receive invitations to private parties and have free tastings each month at the tasting room. For a deeper dive into their options visit their website. 
 
This is our favorite wine club in the Boise area due to its flexibility. Many clubs have preselected wines, but Coiled’s allows you to curate a selection that best suits your taste buds! 
TELAYA WINE CO. 
 
This is one of our favorite wineries in the Boise area. Tucked along the Boise River on the infamous Green Belt in Garden City, this family-owned winery has some of the best wine and ambiances around. Open daily, sit outside on their patio and lawn for tastings, grab a bite to eat at local rotating food trucks and catch live music! 
 
Telaya opened in 2008 and has been focused on creating wines that are affordable yet exceptional ever since. They have award winning wines from both the Columbia Valley and the Snake River Valley, making for a winery that has quickly become a local staple.  
 
TELAYA WINE CLUB: 
 
We choose this wine club based on its unbeatable location. The wine club will inspire you to relax and make a visit to this stunning winery along the Boise River as often as you can. Its owners did an impeccable job of creating a beautiful setting for its visitors and wine club members to enjoy – lawn chairs, river views, patio space, and an indoor/outdoor feel. 
 
As a Telaya Wine Club member, you will receive 12 bottles per year with access to exclusive events and certain wines. Can you say a Rosé release party?! Dinners and library tastings are exclusively offered. 12% off additional bottle purchases and 22% off additional case orders are also a large perk to its members. 
 
This wine club has been wildly popular among people of all ages. If you are looking for an excuse to get down to the Boise Greenbelt, drink wine and enjoy friends and family – this wine club is perfect for you!
CINDER WINES
 
Just three minutes from Downtown Boise, in Garden City, Cinder is a Treasure Valley wine lovers’ favorite. In fact, Cinder Wines has been hailed as one of the “West’s Best Urban Wineries” by Sunset Magazine – so obviously, it is a must visit. And fun fact, the winery is named after the volcanic cinder that is beneath many of the vineyards the company works with. 
 
The tasting room is large, and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable about all things wine. The winery has won awards for its Shiraz and Off-Dry Riesling, so make sure to order those when you stop by! 
CINDER WINE CLUB: 
 
For the serious wine lover with a discerning palate! Members receive 12 bottles of their choosing, twice annually. Here are some other perks: 

  • Access to the “Small Lot Series” wines
  • 20% discount on your allocations
  • 15% discount on any other wine purchases
  •  20% discount on any case purchases

Do I Need A Real Estate Agent to Sell My House?

You may be interested in a similar approach to selling your house. In an age of do-it-yourselfers and self-starters, you may be wondering, do I need a real estate agent?

It’s understandable that you want to eliminate the middleman and move confidently toward the FSBO sale. The national average commission rate is 5.8%. However, this decision can leave you feeling frustrated and stressed.

As you make this decision, consider whether you are able to identify with any of these signs.

1. It would be difficult to market your home or answer phone calls if you have a day job.

When you are completing an executive review or crunching spreadsheet numbers, will you give up everything to respond to homebuyer show requests?

We didn’t believe so. You’re not the only one.

The intensity of American work culture is evident with the average American professional working over 34 hours per week, and 64% of families having two parents who are employed.

If you have a lot of professional and personal obligations, it’s rare that you find time to squeeze in a spin class or some quality downtime. Or you might be a master at time management and scheduling.

It can seem impossible to list your home, schedule showings, and navigate paperwork all while still managing your day. This is why 89% of homeowners chose an agent to help them sell their homes in 2022.

Although it may appear that the life of a realtor is a series of champagne-laden open houses, it’s not easy.

Many people don’t realize the amount of work involved in selling a house and believe that it is an easy job.

“Full-time realtors(r), like myself, do this every day, nothing other,” says Martin Tokos. has 18 years of industry experience and sold homes 52% faster that the average Malden agent. Many people think of real estate agents who have a license simply because they enjoy looking at houses and helping one or two others.

These are just a few of the many tasks your agent will handle while you’re at work.

  • Hosting and scheduling tours
  • Calling prospective buyers
  • Photography and staging
  • Creating listings on MLS or other platforms
  • Sign-making and posting
  • Social media sharing and client networking
  • Negotiating with buyers and making offers

A team with an agent makes it easier and more stress-free to manage your business. This allows you to concentrate on your S&P gains or your fantasy football lineup, while your agent takes care of the day-to-day tasks.

staging your home

2. You would like to sell your house as quickly as possible.

In an effort to save money, most homeowners sell their homes alone. They believe they can save money by selling their home without an agent and get a better return on their investment. This is not always true. Recent reports show that the median selling price for FSBO homes is approximately $24,000 lower than those sold by agents.

Black Knight has partnered with Collateral Analytics, a leading real-estate data source, to confirm the findings. To determine the price difference between FSBOs and traditional agent-represented sales, they looked at a variety of geographic real estate markets including Phoenix, San Diego, and Boston. The study revealed that FSBOs are able to sell for 5.5%, or even 6%, less than traditional agent-assisted sales.

You were concerned about the 5.8% commission? You could lose that money if you undersell your home without an agent. Many homebuyers view FSBOs as a guaranteed win, as they act as a buffer during the negotiation process.

Tokos mentions that many sellers don’t fully understand the market conditions and nuances of the negotiation process. “This can give the buyer’s agent an advantage — and allow them to negotiate with the seller down by quite a bit.”

The buyer’s agent is not only an expert in negotiation but also has years of experience in local markets and transactions. This gives them a distinct advantage.

Tokos describes how he helps homeowners to protect their prices by prepping for inspection. This is to make sure buyers don’t ask for credit or negotiate.

3. It would be preferable to have someone who is experienced in handling unfamiliar paperwork.

Although it can vary from one state to the next, a real property transaction can involve up to 180 pages worth of paperwork. This can make it seem overwhelming for many sellers who have to deal with this type of paperwork on their own.

It will be easier to have an expert verify the accuracy of each crossed “t” and dotted “i”, and save you time and headaches later.

Mandatory disclosures are another part of the puzzle and require a lot more paperwork. The seller could be held responsible if they fail to disclose important information to buyers.

According to the National Association of Realtors (r), 30% of home sales were held up in October 2020 because of various obstacles such as title, inspections, and financing. Each step of the process is complicated and can lead to misunderstandings that could negatively impact your ability to close the deal.

The most difficult task for FSBO sellers is understanding the paperwork. This is why your agent will offer you services in most states that include an evaluation and review of all paperwork.

Your agent will assist you from reviewing offers to closing the deal. They will be your guide through the finer points of negotiation terms.

What does all the hard work of an agent mean to you? Your attorney will spend less time billing you.

moving boxes

4. You are in a rush to sell your property or you have a deadline for moving out.

According to FSBO sellers, selling within the timeframe was one of the five most difficult tasks. This is not ideal if time is tight. Finding a buyer without the assistance of an agent is one of the greatest challenges in FSBO.

Agents bring a wealth of knowledge and negotiation skills to sellers. An agent who is a top-notch professional will have a large network of clients and potential buyers ready to help them buy their dream home.

Solo sellers can’t replicate this exposure, no matter how well-respected their social media profiles may be. Tokos says, “With top agents, it really is the exposure you get for your home.”

If an FSBO sells quickly, it is likely that the seller had a buyer in mind before listing the property. NAR reports that 52% of FSBO sellers sold their homes to someone they knew in 2020. This could be a relative, friend, or neighbor.

5. You can price your home without a real estate agent by using the internet.

Pricing your home accurately is important and requires the ability to evaluate all elements that affect its value. While estimators can be helpful, it is difficult to price a home correctly.

Tokos shares the challenges and nuance of pricing. Some sellers may not be able to understand the implications of certain elements, such as a wider driveway or the size and slope of your lot.

Although your home may look the same as your neighbor’s, subtle differences can drastically affect its value. The proximity to an airport or noisy highway is two examples of features that can lower the value of your house. This makes pricing difficult and nuanced.

A real estate agent can help you assess the value and price of your home. This will ensure that your pricing strategy is precise.

It is not easy to assess the home’s value and analyze recent sales to gain a real understanding of its market value. It can be difficult to find enough comparable sales and make sure that all details are included in your home.

It may be possible for people with strong Wi-Fi connections and a determined spirit to do it, but it might not be practical for everyone. A professional can help you navigate the complexities of CMAs.

Tokos shares his tips with sellers on how to improve the value of their homes before they list them on the market.

6. This house has been your home for many years and you have many fond memories.

Although we try to not let emotions take over, selling your home is a significant milestone that can tug at your otherwise calm heartstrings.

Do I need a real estate agent to sell my house? Yes, you do.

An agent in real estate brings an objective view, leaving behind emotional baggage and relying solely on professional instincts.

Negotiation is an art form that can be complex on its own. Add emotions to the mix, and you have a new animal.

Overpricing can be caused by emotions, as well as the horrible dance that ensues. Sellers who set unrealistic prices can make buyers feel insulted if they are offered a lower price and refuse to negotiate.

Tokos shares the fact that some homeowners are prone to emotional reactions during negotiations, which can lead to poor decisions and tricky transactions. The worst-case scenario is when the FSBO seller becomes upset, and the deal may be ended.

An agent can help you with pricing and constructive criticism. An agent can provide advice that maximizes your profit.

Real Estate Agent

7. A highly skilled agent can help you reduce stress and make your life easier by taking over the tasks listed above.

There is no law that states you have to use a Realtor in order to sell your house. There’s a reason that only 8% of home sellers do it themselves. Agents are there to help you get the best price, guide you through the process, and protect your sanity from demanding buyers.

Tokos points out that the real estate industry is a mixed bag and not all agents are equal. Depending on who you are with, you may be either on the right path to success or doom in real estate.

It’s important to research your options so that your agent selection is targeted and purposeful.

Finding a good agent and selling a house can be difficult. But, it doesn’t have to be.

Reserve Conchal is a piece of paradise in the Gold Coast

Reserva Conchal, the exclusive 2,300-acre residential and vacation development that leads directly into this paradisiacal beach has grown to become one of Guanacaste’s most iconic communities.
