Community Spotlight – Does it Feel Like Home?


Select a Community that Welcomes You

As you tour homes for sale in the Boise metro area, stop and consider how it might feel to return to each neighborhood after a long day. Details like the surrounding landscape, ambient noise, and even traffic patterns can affect that important sense of “home” we all crave.  Here are some things to look for:

Parks and Places of Recreation

If you and your kids appreciate an active lifestyle, then you’ll want to think about a future neighborhood that supports activities you enjoy. When local parks and places of recreation are close to home, it’s easy to gather the family for an after-dinner walk or join the gang for a game. Some communities even offer their own lush parks and walking paths, so you can meet a friend for a jog just outside your door.

Neighborhood Amenities

Boise and its surrounding areas provide many neighborhoods with attractive entries and safe, well-lit streets, but some have much more to offer. When conducting your search, consider the amenities that each community features. Living in a community that offers a swimming pool, playground, and beautiful green spaces can boost the satisfaction you experience in your home, and increase the amount of time you and your family spend at home together.

Other Considerations

When choosing between new Boise homes and neighborhoods, try visiting at different times of day to get a feel for what it’s like to live in each community. Notice the views you might have from your windows. Take note of the environment: is it noisy and full of traffic, or peaceful and serene? All of these elements can add to – or detract from – your contentment in your new home.

In the weeks to come, check here for a series of Community Spotlights offering sneak peaks into Boise area neighborhoods – and for even more information, visit us at! You’ll find a “Communities” page where you can access bird’s-eye views of each distinctive Coleman locale, along with detailed maps and information that will help you on your new-home journey.

Community Spotlight – How Long Does it Take to Get There from Here?


Location is Key!

As you peruse potential homes and neighborhoods, remember that location makes all the difference! A well-planned community will offer your dream home situated within easy reach of your daily routine’s essentials.  Here are some of the most important things to consider:


Education is always a top concern for families with children and those who plan on having kids in the future. When considering Boise homes or potential neighborhoods, make sure to check on their proximity to the kind of schools you favor. Boise and its surrounding areas of Meridian, Eagle, Nampa, Middleton, and Kuna offer a variety of choices, including public, private and charter schools. Check online to research specific education information, or ask a Sales Consultant at any Coleman community. They’re experts on what each community has to offer, and since many are parents themselves, they can lend even more insight into the education options available at each prospective neighborhood.

Commute to Work

When checking out homes for sale in the Boise metro area, don’t forget to account for your commute to work! No one likes to spend more time on the road than necessary, and a neighborhood with easy freeway access or close proximity to major transportation routes can be an enormous daily timesaver.

Nearby Local Businesses

No matter which part of Boise or its surrounding environs you choose, you won’t have everything you need right at your doorstep.  Choosing a neighborhood that’s close to common necessities like grocery stores, gas stations, coffee shops, banks, and restaurants can make a big difference to your daily schedule.  Some well-planned communities are even situated within walking distances of everyday conveniences. When looking at homes for sale in Boise, make sure to think about which local businesses you’ll need most, and how long it will take you to reach them.

Check here tomorrow for even more handy tips on choosing your perfect community — and while you wait, stop by! You’ll find a “Floorplans” page featuring three fabulous collections and an interactive tool that lets you personalize plans for yourself. It’s a great step to take along your path to new-home happiness!

Community Spotlight – Your Dream Home Starts with a Dream Community!


Location Makes All the Difference!

When you think “new home” do you immediately begin picturing a gorgeous gourmet kitchen or a beautiful backyard retreat?  It’s great to envision the elements of your dream home, but before you focus on its fine points, spend a few moments considering its location!

The community you choose will determine countless small details affecting your future daily routine:  can you grab a good cup of coffee along your morning commute?  Where can you stop for gas, or that grocery item you need to complete dinner? What view would greet you from your bedroom window? Is there a place for the kids to play outside on a sunny day?  Small details like these can have a powerful influence on how happy you and your family will be in your new home and neighborhood.

Here at Coleman Homes, we know that “community” is an essential piece of your new home dream, and if you are considering homes for sale in the Boise metro area, you have a lot of options to choose from. We’d love to help make your search a little easier!  In the days to come, check here for a handy list of items to think about as you tour new Boise homes and neighborhoods.

In the meantime, visit! You’ll find a “Build” page that walks you step-by-step through the home selection and building experience. It’s a great place to start in the journey to your family’s dream home!

Our Thanks to Everyone Who Took Part in Coleman Homes’ 5th Annual Giving Tree!


Together We’ll Make the Holidays Brighter for Idaho Foster Families

On Friday, December 18 we presented Giving Tree cash and gift donations totaling more than $6000 to Jonathan Wakeman and Samatha Ockerman, VISTA volunteers with Idaho’s One Church one Child organization.

One Church One Child (OCOC) is a partnership between the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, communities of faith, and other invested partners working together to improve outcomes for children in Idaho. With a particular focus upon foster children, OCOC works to build a natural community support system for all children and their families.

Coleman Homes collected the unwrapped gifts and monetary donations at our communities in Meridian, Eagle, Middleton, Nampa, and Kuna between December 2 and 16. Wakeman said every dollar gathered and gift received will directly benefit Idaho foster children and their families this holiday season.

Donations like the one from Coleman Homes make a big difference to their organization, Wakeman said. “There are over 600 foster kids living in 250 homes throughout Idaho. These families make a heroic effort to provide every kid with love and encouragement, and they couldn’t do it without community support like this. We’re really grateful for the generosity,” he added.

“We’re blessed to have this chance to give back to our community in such a tangible way,” said Coleman Homes Sales Operations Manager Teresa Andolfi. “Our thanks go out to all the friends and partners who joined with us to give this year. We’re so glad to know that Christmas will be a little happier for some foster kids and their families.”

Thank you so much to all our friends, vendor partners, Coleman homeowners, community members, and Coleman Homes employees who contributed to the Giving Tree to help make this holiday season bright for Idaho’s foster children!

As we come to the close of another year, we’ve reached a major milestone: we’ve sold our one-thousandth home in Idaho!  These past twelve months have been busy ones; we’ve helped over 250 families design their dream home, we’ve opened The Oaks, our new master-planned community in Meridian, and we’ve broken ground at Timbermist, our newest community in Kuna. We’re so grateful to all the friends and partners who have worked alongside us and helped us every step of the way.
