This is an overall look of the Boise Idaho Real Estate market from May 2006 through May 2008.  It is important to remember May 2006 was the end of record home sales in Boise and that should not be the baseline of we compare the current conditions to.  A "normal" real estate market would be somewhere between those highs and the current lows.

The following real estate statistics are for Ada County single-family homes.

Boise Real Estate Inventory

Inventory, or the number of homes for sale, fluctuate depending on the time of the year.  Generally, more homes come on the market in the spring and summer and in the fall inventory starts to come down.  The following graph shows the total homes for sale and also distinguishes between existing homes and new construction.  As you can see, the new home inventory has slowly been decreasing for quite some time while existing home inventory has still been increasing.

The number of homes selling also fluctuate depending on the time of the year- more in the spring and summer and less in the winter.

Boise Real Estate Absorption Rate

Absorption rates for both existing and new construction have been improving in recent months- a positive sign.  A "balanced" real estate market would be around a 6 month absorption rate.
