Affordable Compared to Mega Cities
Boise is growing and it shows no signs of stopping. Locals believe that prices are getting out of control. People who have lived in megacities before or have studied them realize this is just the beginning for Boise.
Cities get bigger, run out of room and prices go up. Many will tell you half-truths about how to fix this. Few will be honest and outright admit that no one has figured it out.
Boise may seem unaffordable to its residents but for those considering moving here, prices seem irresistible. Here are just a few options around $400,000.
House 1: Boise Bench
The “Prairie” features an open floor plan that flows to outdoor living and is beautifully dressed w/quality finishes including: quality painted soft close cabinets, quartz countertops, under cabinet lighting, tiled floors in baths, Moen fixtures, custom built-ins, & Bosch appliances. Perfect for entertaining and a great option for growing families. Estimated completion – Fall 2020

The Bottom Line
Boise won’t remain affordable forever. Sooner or later we will be just as expensive as Los Angeles, Portland or Seattle.
The key factor for our continued growth is the ability for people to sell their homes in others cities, remote work and retirees continuing to flock here for a calmer life.
