People from All Over the World are Discovering
North Idaho has a diverse population with an increasing number of technology firms and start-ups. The enthusiasm is high creating a business environment of innovation and creativity. The attitude felt among the greater network of business contacts is, “We can do it! We can do anything.”
Why is this happening? This video says it all and shows it. It’s not hype. It’s a testimony about the reality of business and family life in Idaho and that definitely includes North Idaho.
Come and see for yourself.
What Attracts People to North Idaho?
Everyone who moves to North Idaho is naturally motivated for a personal reason. It may be for a safer environment for their family or to just get out of an overcrowded city. It may be a dream they’ve carried while making a living elsewhere. Perhaps its lower taxes or even a job that motivates such a move. I can honestly report however, that the most commonly expressed reason for moving here from the non-residents I talk to regarding real estate is our great abundance of fresh water resources.

Worsening Droughts Predicted Elsewhere
Just yesterday (February 13, 2015) News Week’s Science column posted a prediction that global warming will result in the worst drought conditions in history in already stricken Southern California, Texas and other mid-western states. With many lakes and reservoirs nearly depleted, towns and cities in those regions are in danger of drying up: no water for anyone, according to the article.
We’ve all seen photos of depleted reservoirs and read news reports of drought conditions and their horrible effect on the inhabitants and economic environments of those states affected.
As a Realtor, and I’m sure this is common among my colleagues, I quite often hear the openly expressed concerns about the availability of water in states where they currently reside. Serious drought conditions elsewhere do, indeed, inspire a rather mobile US to consider picking up and moving on to regions like North Idaho where drinking water and recreational use of water are not concerns.
We live and work in North Idaho for as many reasons as there are people. But the common ground for blue and white collar workers, entrepreneurs and retired folks is that we have this incredible playground all around, all within 50 to 75 miles from the heart of Coeur d’Alene.
If you were to re-establish your business and build-to-suit on the Rathdrum Prairie or anywhere in the area in proximity of plentiful housing, a trained workforce and this huge playground of outdoor opportunities, you’d know right away what I’m talking about.
Take a look at magazines like Coeur d’Alene Living-Local, a free, widely distributed monthly magazine and you’ll see exactly what it’s like to live and work around this tremendous North Idaho community.
Idaho’s big three lakes, Coeur d’Alene Lake, Lake Pend Oreille and Priest Lake are all within an hour’s drive offering a wide variety of excellent fishing, boating, camping or just sight-seeing the natural and unique shorelines of each.
