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). To discover what your home is currently valued at, simply click here and we will happily provide you with an obligation-free, complimentary home or investment property evaluation.

Or if you're interested in browsing available homes in your local area (and take advantage of the low mortgage rates), click here. Otherwise, keep reading to learn more about what's happening in Ada County's real estate market.
