How to Search for Homes for Sale in Boise, ID

Touring houses is the easiest part and the component people enjoy the most when buying a home. Finding homes to tour is normally the first step by setting up a home search online. Many services will even send you alerts when homes that match your search criteria are listed. It is important that you and your family are in alignment with what is important in your next home: location, lot size, bedrooms, bathrooms, square feet, garage spaces, and any other details that are important. Be sure to define and prioritize needs and wants just in case you are not finding the perfect home at the price you want.

Buying a home can be very complicated with legal contracts, inspections, contingencies, warranties, taxes, HOA dues, and many other hurdles every buyer and seller must navigate to get to the signing table. In the end, fulfilling the American Dream of home ownership is a great reward!

Build Idaho offers the most extensive searches combined with the area's leading professional real estate services. When are ready to get started, contact us.

How much house can you afford?

This is the most important detail of them all! You need to clearly understand how much house you can buy, what it will take to purchase the house, what financing looks like for you (monthly payments), and knowing how to confidently make an offer. Learn more here.

How important is location?

Real Estate is driven by location. But people are also getting very focused on getting close to what they love most: hiking, biking, fishing, retail therapy, or living far away from it all. People are moving to Idaho for lifestyle. There is more to life then a job! Did you know that 63% of Idaho is public lands?

Define your priorities in a home search.

What is most important to you and your family? What type of lifestyle do you want to have and how will where you live affect that? Do you need to live near childcare or schools? Where are homes that interest you in proximity to work? Are you wanting to live in the foothills, along the Boise River, out in the desert, or near the Snake River? Are you looking for more country, more city, mountain living, or something in between?

How much land do you want and what will you do with it?

Do you want a smaller yard or possibly zero-scape? Are you looking for acreage or something with no neighbors? Some communities offer patio homes or townhomes where mowing is included in the HOA dues. Some people dream of having a large yard. Remember that a yard can take a lot of time between mowing and weeding the garden which may require more than you actually want to commit to year-round.

As a note, land closer to Boise is more expensive and you are likely to find larger acreage parcels further away from the city. We recommend looking a little further out if you are looking for larger lots or acreage.

What does your house look like?

The possibilities are vast: Condominiums to farms & ranches; historical homes to brand new houses; near water to elevated panoramic mountain views. Is it a modern farmhouse, mid-century, or a log cabin? One thing about finding the perfect home is that it has to resonate with you. It needs to feel like home and be a house that tells people who you are. Pride is a big part of the decision. It has to be a place you want to show off whether you are entertaining friends or hosting a business dinner.
Note: Keep in mind that you may have to find a balance between what you want and what you can actually afford today.

Is your home for sale today?

The more specific your search gets, the harder it gets to find that perfect house. Sometimes, a person is looking for a specific feature, location or design element but it may not be listed for sale yet. Most home searches allow you to enter any number of criteria so you can narrowly identify what you are looking for. Depending on your situation, patience, and motivation, your home may be for sale tomorrow.

Are you trying to time the real estate market for your next home purchase?

We all want to find a house that meets our needs and is a 'great deal'. Boise has been a seller's market for years now, so finding a home that is underpriced is rare. Many times, homes that are underpriced are sought out first?which then drives the price up. 2019 was predicted to be a year of normalization and correction in the marketplace for home values, but the activity we are seeing is no indication that the demand is slowing down locally. That being said, other major metros are experiencing shifts and Boise will eventually be affected. Currently, we are seeing more multiple offers on most Boise houses for sale!


Tips to winning your next home and making the best offer when looking for Boise homes for sale

  1. Get Pre-Approved. Have your home loan program, earnest money, and down payment ready to go. Are you paying cash? Wonderful! We have proof of funds available with your offer.
  2. When a home comes on the market that could be 'the one,' go see it immediately. Waiting until the weekend in this market is going to create a missed opportunity.
  3. Find out what is important to the seller and make your offer match accordingly. Do they need to close soon or do they have a date in mind that would work best for them? What price are they really loooking for or need to net? It is grest how often someone will share this information to help their buyer out.
