Our favorite place for inspiration – Pinterest, of course.
Wouldn’t you know, they tallied, counted, made a killer algorithm and analyzed what people were pinning last year. Oh, to be a professional Pinterester… but they came up with the 2016 Hottest Home Trends (can you imagine how many pins they went through?!).
Here they are, in the flesh…
Shades of Gray
Graphic Throw Pillows
Gilded Metallic Wallpaper

We love you & thank you! Can’t wait to see who sells a home in the new year!
As we wrap up 2015 and kick off 2016 – we must give big shout outs to the Sales Teams who rocked it and the Superintendents who went above and beyond.
2015 4th Quarter (Oct.-Dec.) Top Sales Center
Team Boise South Meridian
Team Boise S. Meridian turned up the heat in the 4th quarter with the motto – “Run your ranch high and tight”. Maybe it was their 12th Man Team who rooted them on with amazing pump-up videos. Maybe it was Karissa returning from maternity leave. Maybe it was all their beautiful smiles. But it was most definitely their amazing attitude, listening, and ability to truly find what their buyers need in a home that led them to the top. Team Boise is keepin’ the heat on strong and won’t let you down!
What does it mean to be a Top Sales Center?
We tally and track for 5 different categories:
Inside Sales Goal
Online Sales Conversion
Numbers are great but a Top Sales Center is so much more than that. They must work well with all departments of CBH, keep their buyers happy, and always courting our endless homeowners. It takes more than an individual effort but a team that is ready for hard work and dedication. Our hats go off to them. Congrats!
Now, for the cat daddy.
The Sales Center of all Sales Centers.
The team who crushed it throughout the whole year. Through thick and thin, this team excelled and dominated during 2015.
Team North Canyon
Say hello to the team who went all out. With not only sales but truly giving back to CBH and their community. Always ready to lend a helping hand, Team North Canyon goes above and beyond for everyone near and around them. Don’t get too confused – Kayla recently moved to Team Star/Eagle to spread her amazing talent and we can’t forget about Amanda Tracy who helped Team North Canyon in the 4th quarter finish strong!
Don’t miss this team in action – go give them a high five, hug, and wish them well because they deserve it.
This year, we couldn’t help but give some love to the Superintendents who made the 2015 magic happen. These men busted their tails this year in order to make sure that we are building shiny, new, awesome CBH homes!
Interest rates are at record lows.For all you youngin’s out there – did you know the interest rate in the ’80’s hit 18.5%? Interest rates are at historic loans with a chance to raise at any moment, which could be a difference of hundreds to thousands of dollars in savings.
Rents have skyrocketed. Time to put your hard earned dollars back into your own pocket instead of that pesky landlord. Rent.com published in their Rental Market Report, 88% of property managers raised their rent in 2015 with a 8% increase predicted for 2016.
Home prices are stabilizing. This varies between markets but we have seen prices slow down, doesn’t mean you should wait – you never know if something will jump them into a rising rush again!
Down payments don’t need to break the bank. We couldn’t agree more. With the first time home buyer programs and many other buyer programs allow for a 3% down payment.
Mortgage insurance is a deal, too.Your MI can significantly raise your monthly payment, however, the Federal Housing Administration fees are down significantly, 1.35% to .85%, making your monthly payment lower if you fund it that way.
You’ll reap major tax breaks. Say hello to a big tax return. The tax laws are in your favor. If your home loan is under $1 million, you can deduct all the monthly interest. Talk about putting some cash in your pocket.
The real question is why wait?
Why pay another month to your landlord? Ready to get on the Fast Track yet?
What is the Fast Track, you ask? Why are we so head over heels in love with it?
The CBH Fast Track is the fastest way to move into your NEW CBH home!
It’s simple, it’s easy … it’s FAST.
Get into a shiny, new, awesome CBH home 30 days faster TODAY.
