Best Affordable Boise Neighborhoods for Home Buyers

Looking for an affordable neighborhood in Boise? You are not alone.

It’s no secret that Boise is a great place to live. The City of Trees routinely tops national “best of” lists for its low cost of living, quality of life, inner-city gems like the Boise River and Greenbelt, and its close proximity to outdoor adventuring.

While Boise is ranked as “more affordable” than the average city on a number of factors, such as healthcare costs and transportation, housing costs are now higher than the national average. Housing prices are also among the fastest-rising in the U.S., which can make finding your dream home at an affordable price challenging.

Fortunately for home buyers, there are still relatively affordable neighborhoods in Boise – you just

Boise Real Estate Market Remains One of the Hottest in Country

The fastest appreciating city in the fastest appreciating state continues to show strength as home price growth in Boise tops 12 percent.

If you have been following the local real estate market, even casually, it should come as no surprise that the Boise area is still very much in a seller's market.

In August, the Federal Housing Finance Agency released a report showing home prices in Boise, and across Idaho, rose faster than anywhere else in the US during the second quarter of 2019.

That same month, prices across the Treasure Valley hit new record highs, the fourth time that has happened since January.

While we tend to see a dip in local home prices this time of year, and this September was no different, the decline has been pretty minor,

What a $400,000 Home Looks Like

What kind of house can $400,000 get you?

According to the Census Bureau, the median home price in the Western US is $410,600. If you are moving to Idaho, or from The Gem State, the data shows your relocation will most likely include California, Washington, and Oregon.

It probably doesn't come as much of a surprise that $400,000 doesn't buy much in major metros like San Diego (median home price $665,000), and even less in San Francisco ($1,762,500). But what about cities typically considered more affordable like Denver, Seattle, and San Bernardino?

While the days of the $200,000 house with the white picket fence and room for a family of four are no more, a quick look at the choices reveals Boise home prices are still relatively cheap.

Boise’s Meridian Home Price Surges $50,000 in Less Than a Year; Now What?

Over the last twelve months, the cost of the typical home in Boise rose by nearly $1,000 a week.

Boise’s median single-family home price increased to $335,000, up 17.54 percent from $285,000 last May.

Ada County home prices also reached a new record of $342,765, an increase of all most $38,000 or 12.42 percent.

In contrast, Canyon County prices are up only $34,200 to $243,200. That’s below the record high set last month but still the second highest on record.

In Boise, homes are selling in a median of six days on market. Even that number understates demand as many savvy sellers won’t review any offers for 48 to 72 hours. The delay gives more time to buyers to see the property, therefore, increasing the opportunity for multiple offers.
