Boise Real Estate Market Update January 2017

Available homes for sale in Boise and throughout Ada and Canyon counties are at record lows. Based on months of inventory, there are just 1.13 months of available homes for sale in Boise. In Ada County, we saw available existing homes for sale drop to 644 in December. In January we saw available homes for sale drop to 561, 44.1% less than in January of 2016.

2017 is bringing little relief to homebuyers. A monthly report doesn’t adequately reflect how quickly properties are selling. Of the 315 homes that listed for sale in January, 174 are either pending or already sold. In other words, they never “appeared as active”. In Ada County that amounted to 673 new listing of which 327 went pending or sold before the end of the month.

Homebuyers continued shopping for new houses through November and December with no real slowdown. Rising mortgage interest rates and tight inventory levels being the

Boise Real Estate Market Update November 2016

Total home sales in Boise for the month of November increased by almost 35% from the same month last year. 35% is a massive increase; the fact that it happened in November is even more astounding. While home prices typically hold steady during the fall months in the Boise, ID the number of homes sold usually drops.

Near record low levels of inventory in October encouraged last-minute shoppers off the sidelines, particularly for those that expected to move into a new home before the Holidays. Buyers that had been looking for an extra bedroom have been more likely to forgo that in exchange for a more budget-friendly price.
