Boise and Ada County Idaho Home Values

Is the Boise Housing Market going to Crash? Is it going to slow down?

Idaho Real Estate Agents have been upbeat about the market since 2011 when it rebounded from the crash in 2008. People began looking about 4 weeks after most cities were shutting down to reduce the infection rate of CoVid, around April 2020. Since then, inquiries and home showing requests have ticked upward in a nearly vertical increase. The pressure for real estate agents to find clients a home has been full throttle. We have discussed real estate market conditions in many of our blog posts.  

Is Boise a good place to invest?

There has been much interest from every type of investor but with home prices rising fast and the average consumer aware of their opportunity to sell for a fair price, good deals are slim. Even developers are paying top dollar in hopes the market remains more than strong. Several large land deals have been put together over the last 6 months. Keep in mind that land normally has a two-year cycle before it is available to build on and means homes for sale are an additional 6 months lag. So developers are very positive about the market.

Additionally, there are several cranes that you can see in the skyline above Boise. There are a number of commercial projects happening with more continuing to make the news. Many retail and large service providers are bringing their products to Boise. There are also a small number of manufacturere considering Boise. Many of these are business decisions but part of that is that the executives and owners want to live here.

Why is Boise Real Estate Booming?

The point cannot be emphasized enough, "Quality of LIfe!" So many people are moving here for affordability, liveability and just the common sense approach that people see to how the state is running and how people live together. As Trey Langford, founder of Build Idaho says "The crazier the world gets, the better Boise looks!"
