Idaho Real Estate Market Trends & Analysis

Few markets across the country have been able to keep pace with the Idaho real estate market. A vastly improved economy, in association with an influx of new residents, have elevated price gains past nearly every other state in the last year. Nonetheless, increasing home values continue to receive momentum from the decreasing supply of lower-priced inventory, increasing demand, and the purchasing power awarded to buyers by low mortgage rates.

There is very little to suggest these indicators won’t continue to push prices hugher for the foreseeable future. Despite double digit price gains over the course of 12 months, however, real estate in Idaho is still relatively affordable. Attractive prices, combined with a positive forecast, suggest the Idaho real estate market may be one of the best places to invest for the foreseeable future.
