In the last three months, 51% of the home sales in Ada County have been foreclosure sales. 20% were short sales and 31% were bank-owned properties.

Areas around downtown Boise, that were largely developed before the boom of '05-'07 have a smaller percentage of foreclosures than areas on the peripheral of the county.  Please keep in mind that areas with a fewer number of overall sales can more easily fluctuate in percentages.
