Comparison of how building permits have changed over the last 8 years

Main Idaho Real Estate Insights

Would you believe that 8 years ago there were 4 times the # of building permits there are today?

Oh have times changed. 8 years ago, everyone wanted to build and now you also have to be smart at marketing, building a business, accounting and branding. Here is a look at the monthly permits from the year 2005 to 2013.

September Ada County Canyon County Totals
 2013 162 74 236
 2012 169 47 216
 2011 98 13 111
 2010 91 17 108
 2009 144 50 194
 2008 95 46 141
 2007 124 52 176
 2006 198 43 241
 2005 642 284 926

This displays a dramatic change from 2005. Of course, this was the hay day compare to what is now a "normal" market.

It will be interesting to see how the 2014 real estate market will be. Out of state homebuyers continue to come and land continues to be developed.

Another reason to move to Boise? Now the city is ranked by CNN Money as the #4 Best Place to Retire. I actually believe this could influence more people to move here.
