I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the homes currently for sale in Ada County and see what kind of percentages the foreclosures make up.

There's 3551 homes for sale in Ada County (Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Kuna, Star).  1029 are short sales (29%) and 348 are bank-owned (10%).

Of that 29% that make up the short sales in Ada County, 31% are "contingent".  That means they have at least one offer on the property and are in the several month time-frame for lender approval.

This first graph shows the percentages of homes that are short sales by MLS area.  The areas with the lowest percentages of short sales are Garden City, NE Boise, N Boise, and SE Boise.  The highest areas are Star, Kuna, and SW Meridian.
