What a crazy weather year we have had in the Magic Valley of South Central Idaho. We have a rather mild fall, but come December, just before Christmas, it started to snow. That snow didn’t let up until towards the end of January it seems. I haven’t shoveled that much snow if a many years. It was only my snow that needed removal, many of my friends and neighbors needed help getting rid of theirs as well. At one point, at the edge of my driveway I had to have had at least an 8 foot pile of snow from all the shoveling. I’d like that to sound like an exaggeration, but it isn’t.
When I moved to the Hagerman Valley, I was told it is considered to be the banana belt of Idaho. Mild winters reign supreme. I was under the impression that I would seldom need to shovel snow; if it did snow it would just melt away before to long. Temperatures aren’t terrible, expect a cold snap for a week or two, but then the temperatures become more manageable. I thought this would be perfect, just what I need. I think I was expecting to much, especially after what we experienced this past winter. Don’t get me wrong, the weather is beautiful in the Hagerman Valley, it’s just this past winter will certainly be one to remember.
All that snow that came in December and January had to eventually melt. The more mild weather pattern set back in at the first of February, and the snow began to melt. The melting resulted in flooding throughout the Magic Valley. Fields were flooded, roadways were closed due to flowing water, roadways washed out, and the rivers began to flow. Fortunately temperatures dropped a bit again which allowed the thaw to slow. Now that we have reached April the snow in the higher elevations is starting to melt, and it’s creating quite the spectacle in our water ways. It is simply beautiful and awe inspiring.
The Magic Valley relies heavily on our water. Our economy is driven by agriculture and aquaculture. It is a resource we do not take for granted.

It looks as though spring is finally coming to the Hagerman Valley. It’s been a long hard winter in Idaho’s banana belt. We have endured record-breaking snowfall, rain, and flooding. Hopefully the brief thaw we had several weeks ago will alleviate more severe flooding as the temperatures continue to rise.
Temperature isn’t the only thing on the rise. According to a story on the Washington Post on March 9, 2017 financial markets anticipate the Fed will raise the benchmark rate when they meet on March 14-15th. In anticipation of such an announcement, mortgage rates have reached a high of 4.21% compared with 4.1% last week, and 3.68% at this time last year. The article notes that mortgage rates aren’t actually tied to treasury rates, they appear to be finally coming in line with those after several years of doing their own thing. The economy appears to be strengthening and with that strength comes the need to increase rates in order to curb inflation. Unless something unforeseen, it is highly likely that the benchmark rate and mortgage rates will continue to climb.
If you have been considering buying a home as a first time home buyer, or you have been thinking about moving into a different home, you may want to act sooner than later. Interest rates play a key role in how much home you can afford.
In looking at Twin Falls County for January 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016 the average price for a home was $174,170 per IMLS. The mortgage and interest payment on a home of that value at last years rate of 3.68% would have been $799.71, at today’s rate of 4.21% your payment would now be $852.74. In order to maintain that same payment, as one year ago, would have to purchase a home valued at $163,339.12, you just lost $10,830 in buying power.
So, if you have any interest in buying, now is a good time while you can get a better bang for your buck.
