Lewiston Idaho Technology

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006

Time to be brutally honest… Sometimes we (I) are snobs. When it comes to technology in the Valley, it seems we are very far behind the rest of the world. Especially coming from the hustle and bustle of Seattle, Lewiston, Idaho technology is simply archaic. Well, it’s not true!

Lewiston Technology Ahead of Seattle

Technology in Lewiston is amazingly advanced for such a small town (30,904 people as of 2000 census). I remember thinking how ridiculous it was living in the heart of Microsoft town and not able to get anything faster than dial-up at home. No cable because there was simply no service. No DSL because we were “too far”. And no satellite because, well, the skies weren’t clear enough :) . When we decided to move to Lewiston, I looked forward to finally getting broadband Internet at home. In fact, I think we got hooked up to CableOne Internet before any other utilities!

Lewiston Idaho Technology Search

So how advanced are we? Well, have you ever looked in the computer section of the yellow pages? We have more computer businesses in the Valley than Starbucks! Okay, maybe that’s not a great standard. So instead, I did a search for “Lewiston Idaho Technology” and found that we have quite a bit going for us.

Obviously there are a lot more results and technology that’s not listed (including the many secret WiFi HotSpots). However, it was a good reminder that Technology in Lewiston isn’t all that bad. And frankly, there’s a lot that is good!

Cougar Ridge and Harvest Vista Homes

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006
As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the usability of the site, we’ve incorporated a page dedicated to the newest listings of Cougar Ridge. Eventually we will do this for all areas in the Valley to provide you with easy access to the information you are looking for. As of this writing, there is only one listing in Cougar Ridge, but it’s a great one! We think it is so great we’ve made it a featured home on our website. What kind of Cougar Ridge information would be valuable to you? Or for that matter, let me know whatever information you’re interested in on the site by leaving a comment or sending us an email. Again, the information we provide is to make things easy for you. Tell us how we help!

How does your home compare?

Thursday, October 27th, 2005

To get an accurate idea of the price of your home, get a CMA. But if you’re just curious about other homes in your town, take a look at our new home prices pages for Washington and Idaho.

Our team has pioneered a number of fabulous real estate tools in the valley including property searches, emailed listings, and custom client logins. And we now have one more… Washington and Idaho Home Price Information.

Okay, it’s not really a “tool”, but you can use it as one. We’ve listed each of the cities that we serve in Washington and Idaho. It’s a laborious task to provide these statistics, but we think it will help you to get a better idea of real estate prices in and around Lewiston.

So far the average price lists include residential properties. This includes condo, manufactured, resale, and new construction home prices. In the future, we will include related information for other types of properties as well. And as soon as we do, you’ll see it first on JudyHiggins.com!
