Boise Homes For Sale: What’s Really Available

Our listing inventory remains extremely thin and it’s a huge challenge finding the right home for a buyer these days.

Here’s what we have for sale in Ada County now.

  • Total Available Listings: 1,744
  • Short Sale Listings: 314 (18.0% of available listings)
  • To-Be-Built Listings: 247 (14.2%)

Looks like a lot of homes, right?

Well, it isn’t and here’s why.

Those short sale listings are difficult to close and 261 of them already have accepted offers awaiting lender approval, meaning that they’re really not available.

And, 247 of those listings are “To-Be-Built”, meaning that those homes do not yet exist.

That leaves just 1,183 listings that are truly available.

When you factor in a buyer’s needs, wants, likes, and dislikes (price, location, and features), the end result is often (usually?) one or two homes remaining for a buyer’s consideration.

Finding the right home for a buyer these days is like solving a gigantic puzzle!
