The stats are in for condo sales in Sandpoint. Idaho and Schweitzer Mountain!  As we can see from the graph below, prices have been holding fairly well (only 16% below 2007's "sold" prices). The lack of volume in 2009 is alarming but not much of a diversion from what we have seen nationally.  Not...

Here's a Schweitzer update:  I just took my obligat...

5 Tips for Increasing Your Blog Readership I try to stay away from New Year's resolutions.  They never work...at least they don't seem to have any staying power.  This year, however, I'm going to take a leap of faith.  Let's call it a leap of faith by necessity...  My broker has asked me to pres...

My blog ("KENT'S SANDPOINT, IDAHO / SCHWEITZER MOUNTAIN BLOG") centers around the uncompromised attributes of Sandpoint and the rest of North Idaho.  There is a part of me that feels a little guilt about exposing what we have here to anyone who is willing or able to read about it.  I have to say,...

I drive by Schweitzer Switchback #7 twice a day every day.  This is the highest and last switchback on the trek up to Schweitzer Mountain Resort and, fittingly, has a viewing turnout.  It is a rare occurrence when I don't stop just to look out over our beloved Sandpoint Valley.  This is truly an ...
