Simply put, the Treasure Valley's current housing market is a bit astounding - okay, some might even say insane. Last month we saw Ada County's median sales price for homes reach a new record of $523,250. Naturally, many are asking why housing prices are so high. While many factors play into the complex answer to this - at the end of the day, it largely comes down to simple economics: Supply & Demand. With demand through the roof and inventory (i.e. the number of homes available for sale) at record lows - prices have been greatly impacted. Check out Jonna's quick update above for more information - or continue reading below to further investigate the numbers.

Rest assured that while our our current housing market is fast-paced, highly competitive and sometimes downright mystifying - we continue to work every day helping both sellers and buyers achieve their real estate goals. Our goal has always been - and continues to be - to ensure that YOU have access to the information, facts and resources necessary to make informed decisions about your real estate investments. We've got our finger on the Treasure Valley real estate market's pulse. If you've got questions - we've got (or will find) answers! Let's chat!

SUMMARY:  If you group together both existing and newly constructed single-family homes and compare those numbers to the same month one year ago (detailed in the top infographic): inventory decreased 54%, the median sales price increased by an incredible 45.3% (coming in at $523,250), and homes sold 57.1% faster than one-year-ago.

If you then examine just existing/resale homes (and remove all the newly constructed homes from the statistics) the general year-over-year trends noted above remain similar: the median sales price increased by 48.3% (coming in at $504,900), inventory dropped by 32.6% and homes sold quickly (52.6% faster than one-year-ago).

And finally, if you look just at newly constructed homes, the overall trend again remains pretty consistent. New homes are selling for a median sales price of $544,986 (a year-over-year increase of 34.9%), there are substantially fewer of them available than there were one year ago (inventory is down by 72%) - and they are selling significantly faster than they were one year ago (by 62.5%).
