Last month the Boise Regional Realtors noted that home prices are typically the highest in June, July, and August each year—and this year will be no exception. In June 2016, the median sales price for new and existing homes combined reached $253,000 in Ada County, a new high surpassing the previous record set in July 2006.

While record high prices raise concerns of affordability, persistent low mortgage rates are keeping things in check. According to the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, FRED Economic Data 30-Year Conventional Mortgage data, the 3.57% mortgage rate for June 2016 was 10.3% lower than last year at this time, and was down 7.8% from January 2016.


Above info was received through the Boise Regional Realtors Website.

Love Of The Treasure Valley

I posted last week about how the population is just exploding here, and it has to do with how much the Treasure Valley has to offer.  I’m curious to know what draws YOU here? Why do YOU love it here?  What does the Treasure Valley have to offer?

For me, I grew up here; this is home.  It was a relatively safe place to raise my children.  It has a vast array of cuisines and restaurants.  Then there’s the natural beauty of the mountains and rivers right outside your back door.  I feel no matter what your hobbies are, you can find it here.

This past week I had two homes go pending, one in Meridian and one in Twin Falls.  We also have four new listings that vary in price range.

This first listing is located off Ventana Ct. in Boise, and has a huge game room with home theatre.  Priced at $465,000.  MLS# 98628112.


This second home is in Nampa off Miller Ct. and has beautiful craftsmanship throughout.  Priced at $349,900.  MLS# 98628005.


This third home is located in a quiet culdesac in Meridian off of Chateau Dr.                Priced at $179,900.  MLS# 98628620.


This fourth home boasts 3,000 sq ft. and 6 bedrooms.  It is located off Nez Perce St. in Rockland.  Priced at $155,000.  MLS# 555009

Demand vs. Supply

I’ve received comments lately from people who are worried that with the home prices rising, it’s going to cause a price inflation.  Breanna Vanstrom, Boise’s Regional Realtors Chief Executive Officer, recently gave a 2016 Mid-Year Housing Update and she stated, “Home prices are rising because of consumer demand vs. supply — not speculation.”  Right now median sale prices are just 2% lower than the all time high in July 2006, but even though they’re the highest its been in the last decade, prices are still relatively affordable compared to area incomes.

The Treasure Valley’s population is growing in leaps and bounds.  There are new companies popping up, and with it comes more jobs.  Gov. Butch Otter, describing why companies are choosing to invest in Idaho: “Capital follows confidence.”

The Treasure Valley has so much to offer and it’s a great place to live and work.  I know a lot of people second guess the thought of buying their own home; whether it be because of the down payment, the commitment, the fear of losing equity.  Buying your own home is a great investment right now, and if you’re worried about coming up with a down payment there are financing options or down payment programs from groups like Idaho Housing and Finance Association.

I am always happy to help in anyway I can.  We can over options and different homes that can work for you.  Call me today!
