Ada County's Housing Inventory & Overall Home Sales Update
According to our friends over at Boise Regional Realtors, for the first time since October 2014, the total inventory for existing homes increased by 5.9%. Despite this slight uptick in existing homes for sale, the total number of closed sales decreased by 6.3% (compared to one year ago). This overall decrease in total homes sold correlates with Ada County's incredible 51-month streak of low inventory and heightened buyer demand.

Any increase in housing inventory is certainly welcome news to potential buyers. If you've been considering a move, this would be a great time to connect with us to discuss what's newly available and/or to list your home.

Summary: Compared to the same month one year ago (January 2018), the median sales price for existing, single-family homes in Ada County increased by 13.9%, while total inventory finally increased by 14.4%. While fewer homes sold (down 6.3% from one year ago), homes under $299k are currently selling within three weeks.

And for newly constructed homes, compared to one year ago, home sales are up 24.6% and overall inventory is up nearly 20%. The median sales price for these homes has increased slightly (by 3%) and they're remaining on the market for several more days than one year ago. With buyer demand still high and bidding wars commonplace, it is a great time to consider looking into newly constructed homes. We've recently had a number of great experiences helping our clients move into their dream homes quickly and easily.


Summary: When viewed together, the above charts (provided by Boise Regional Realtors) offer a great, comprehensive visual representation of our current market. While overall closed sales has decreased, inventory has increased slightly and our median sales price remains impressively high. These three factors will continue to work together to influence changes in the market.
