LAST MONTH: ACROSS ADA COUNTY HOME SALES PREDICTABLY LOWER
Unsurprisingly, last month the total number of closed home sales was predictably lower than one year ago (down 29.7%). With that said, when you consider this seemingly significant drop, it is important to keep in mind that the homes included in this number (i.e. homes that were under contract and then fully closed) reflect buyer activity from March and April when Idaho's stay-at-home order was in full force, which temporarily stifled a significant amount of real estate activity.
When it comes to 'Pending' transactions (i.e. homes or properties that are currently under contract/have accepted offers) that number has increased year-over-year by 4.7%. If you then compare that same number (of homes 'Pending') to the previous month's number of 'Pendings', you will see an increase of 25.4%. Both of these comparisons help to emphasize the fact that the Boise real estate market is still firing right along. Over the next couple of months we will see these transactions go from 'Pending' to 'Closed', which will correlate with a significant shift in the numbers.
While nothing is 100% certain during this unprecedented time, our team remains very optimistic about Boise's local housing market. Due to how strong our market kicked off 2020, coupled with continued buyer demand and low supply, we think the stage is strongly positioned for a rebound in sales.

Summary: If you group together both existing and newly constructed single-family homes and compare those numbers to the same month one year ago; the sales prices increased 6%, the time it took to sell decreased by 12.5%, inventory decreased 22.9%, but (as noted above) substantially fewer homes sold (-29.7%).
If you then examine just existing/resale homes (and remove all the newly constructed homes from the statistics) the general year-over-year trends remain similar - but the decrease in inventory is even more dramatic - down an incredible 27.8%! With inventory so low and demand high, it remains a fantastic time to sell.
For newly constructed homes, the overall trend remains pretty consistent, with the exception of how long these homes are remaining active on the market (i.e. how long it takes for them to go "Pending"). New homes are remaining on the market for 48 days opposed to 19 days (the average for pre-existing homes).
