Boise, Idaho has recently been called many things: “Best City in America for Families”, “Best City for Small Businesses”, and even one magazine touted it as “One of the Safest Cities in the World”…just to name a few. Whatever it may be called, people have been flocking here to be able to call Boise, Idaho “their new home”. Now let’s be honest. The huge surge of growth didn’t happen because one day, everyone woke up and said, “Let’s move to Boise!” Boise, Idaho has always had a steady stream of newcomers as they heard through the quiet whispers of others who have lived here that Boise was an amazing place to live..but shhh, don’t let the secret get out. But with 2020 came change and an awakening for many that they needed to find a new city to call home. A city that would be a place of refuge and offer them an amazing quality of life, a place where they could leave behind what they didn’t like from the past and start fresh..and they found (and are finding) exactly that in Boise, Idaho.

People love Boise, Idaho for so many reasons, but here are a few: amazing quality of life, easy access to outdoor recreation (mountains, lakes, rivers, deserts…), a clean and friendly downtown, a downtown that has the amenities of a larger city, easy access to the airport, a hometown feel while still having the benefits of a larger city, a community committed to keeping Boise beautiful and safe, relatively affordable housing…the list could go on and on..but there is something for everyone to love in Boise, Idaho.

Let’s Talk About Real Estate in Boise, Idaho

With a population of close to 230,000 in Boise and 740,000 in the whole Treasure Valley, Boise is Idaho’s largest city. But, Boise actually is the valley’s slowest growing city. Boise saw about 10,000 new residents in 2020. In May of 2021, the median home sales price in Boise is about $470,000. That has gone up over 23% since 2020! Many people who were going to move here only for the affordability factor have chosen to move to less expensive states…and that’s okay, but they are missing out on the big picture. And those that are still moving because they recognize that life isn’t always about a cheap house, but an overall amazing quality of life, well, you’ll be glad you came.

Boise is made up of several distinct neighborhoods, such as “The North End” and “The Bench”…there is truly a place for everyone’s liking. Which area is best? Well, if you ask someone from “The North End”, they will emphatically claim that is the best…if you ask someone from “The Bench”, they will claim that is the best..you get the point. Wherever you live, you will become a fan of that area of town. Check out my video that gives a brief overview of all the neighborhoods (and I will be making more videos about each specific one): Boise: Locations, Neighborhoods, and Maps.
