Selling Your Rupert Idaho Real Estate
Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of time in Rupert which I believe gives me a unique insight about what a home for sale in Rupert Idaho has to offer a homebuyer. Growing up, my grandparents on my moms side lived right about in the middle of Rupert, about a block away from Ridley’s (which used to be IGA back then) and a few blocks away from the square. After growing up & moving away from Mini-Cassia for a while, then coming back, I ended up living in Rupert for a time while my wife & I were just starting a family, this time about a mile out of town. I’ve had/have several relatives who also have lived & owned Rupert & Minidoka homes in and outside of town for many years. So, after spending a fair amount of time in Rupert, both in town & out, I’ve developed a bit of a liking for the city of Rupert.
Spending as much time as I have in Minidoka has helped me understand how nice living & owning a home in Rupert, Idaho could really be. There are a lot of recreational resources not far from Rupert. Throughout my life, Minidoka Dam & Lake Walcott State Park (which aren’t all that far away from Rupert) have always drawn me back time & time again for the recreation they offer. If you’ve been to Minidoka Dam & Lake Walcott State Park, you’ll know that there’s a frisbee golf course across the park and several access points to the river to fish from, not to mention boating ramps & ample parking to put in boats & jet skis. Lake Walcott State Park is a great recreational spot where I’ve acquired many great memories over the years, throughout childhood with my parents and as an adult with my own kids. I can only hope my kids will recall similar ones from the time I’ve spent with them there too.
Outside of the dam & park area, there’s the North & Southside canals in which some people in the area are privy to spots on those canals where fish can be caught & birds (like pheasants & ducks, sometimes even geese) can be hunted. I’ve had the privilege of growing up knowing of some of these places & spent many cold mornings jumping ducks off pools remaining in the canals as well as catching some pretty nice trout out of them when fuller.
Even-though Rupert is not a large town by any stretch of the imagination, there are some great things available the city has to offer beyond the outdoor recreation of state parks, etc. which are available in Minidoka. The city of Rupert always puts on a great firework show around the holidays & they really go all out with Christmas celebration for a town the size Rupert is. The square has always had some great, unique & classic businesses like Doc’s Pizza & the Drift Inn. Now you can even ice skate at the square during certain times of the year.
