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.
