If you are not from Boise you may be wondering what the fuss is all about? There is this little school with a football team that is probably the most talked about team in the country for their accomplishments. There are these endless recognitions from major media sources setting the record for Best Place to Live Work and Play. What could be so great about a city in the middle of a desert? Of course, that?s what they said about Las Vegas years ago as well.

I actually have the opportunity to visit with people moving to Boise on a regular basis and ask them this very question- Why Boise? For everyone it is a little different but I have found two common themes. First and most popular- Following Family. This is by far the most common answer. Not only are people following family but families are suggesting and encouraging their parents and siblings to move to Boise with them. We could write an encyclopedia on all the things to do in Boise but imagine the people you love the most saying come with us to Boise. You’d have to believe there is something to that. Want to know what the second common string is? Lifestyle. Obviously theses two things go hand in hand but so many people have come to Boise and had a great time that they decided to make Boise their base camp. With four seasons, a desert, a river, mountains, foothills, extensive greenbelt system, ski resort, lakes, and numerous parks Boise truly is the resort metro of the Northwest. Combine this with other popular features such as affordability and culture it makes sense that the growth of the area has exploded over the last decade. See Video on Business in Idaho

So why are you considering Boise? Whether relocating for a job or following family, when you are considering Idaho real estate it real is about the location. Each area of Boise Metro is very distinctive and can provide more of the lifestyle you may want. For example if you want to walk or bike to the local coffee ship in the morning and then find your friends for cocktails in the afternoon you may enjoy the North End. Of course you may not want to see anybody most of the day and enjoy the urban areas surrounding Boise. Each area has its own feel and energy. Your realtor can help you better understand each community in the Boise Metro Area. We want you to tell your friends as well how great life is in Idaho!
