Why are so many Californians moving to Idaho, specifically Boise?
Idaho is the top destination for Californians that want to leave.
On top of all of the news and reports, the 2019 migration report shows how popular Idaho—specifically the Boise area—is to out-of-state buyers. Lower cost of living and taxes, relatively affordable housing, carefully-planned growth, friendly people, and unparalleled access to outdoor activities in this up-and-coming hip city are the top attractions. In fact, the COVID-19 pandemic has fueled a new, more significant wave of people moving into Idaho, with 194% more people moving into the state than out.
