It's easy to see...
Drive into the "valley of plenty," via Highway 16's Freeze-out Hill and you’ll see orchards and fields stretched out before stark foothills where a century ago outlaws found refuge. Head on into Emmett and you’ll soon feel that legendary small-town serenity. New housing developments are nearly hidden in the rolling hills surrounding town.
This is a place where big city life meets small town quiet living, and we like it just fine...
From the tree-shaded park across from the railroad depot to the drive-in café where neighbors meet over a flavored soda, Emmett is a town linked to its past but poised for the future. We invite you to get to know our town, and look around the rest of the Treasure Valley as well - we can show you some of the best homes and properties available and have the experience you'll want when the time comes to make the move.

Believe it or not Winter is in full swing! While we've had a relatively mild season in Idaho so far that doesn't mean that this isn't still the coldest part of the year, and we've still got a few months left. That being the case it's also the time of year when home energy costs can be the highest; so it's important to keep an eye on things around the house in order to keep from having a unhappy surprise in your power bill.
We've put together just a few tips to help you stay cozy this Winter and keep costs low too!
Lower The Temp
Set that thermostat to 68. Yes, 68. It might be a littler cooler than you are used to but you can always bundle up. Keeping the temperature a little lower will of course cause the heater to run less.
Change Your Filters
Your home air filters can have a huge effect on how well your air systems work. Having a dirty filter can cause your heating system to run as much as 20% less efficient. Keeping those filters fresh will also help keep you healthier!
Check windows and doors for air leaks! Patch up any leaky spots to help prevent cold drafts from seeping in and stealing away your warm air.
These three tips can help you save a bundle this Winter!
