Demand for Ada County Homes Drives Prices to New Record
According to our friends over at Boise Regional Realtors®, heightened demand coupled with comparatively low inventory of homes continues to drive prices up across the valley. If you compare numbers year-over-year (November 2018 to November 2019) the number of homes pending or under contract jumped by a whopping 20.6%. And newly constructed homes make up an incredible 32.2% of the market share.
In order for the market to regain balance, the market needs more inventory (of both existing and new construction) at all price points, but especially those below $250,000. If you've been considering a move, this would be a great time to connect with us to discuss the current value of your home and to see what's newly available on the market (again, the new construction market is booming).

And for newly constructed homes, compared to one year ago, the median sales price increased by 13.1% and inventory decreased (by 8.1%). Overall, more newly constructed homes are selling ( 12.7%), and these home are staying on the market for almost 2 months (which is a significant year-over-year increase of 39%).
