While 2012 was a great year in the Boise real estate market, 2013 looks even more promising as home values continue their upward trend. From February '12 to February '13, the median price of single-family homes rose from $140,500 to $160,000, an an increase of 12.1%.  Compared to the same time 2 years ago (February '11), the median price was $137,700.

Homes for sale in Boise aren't on the market as long as they used to be with an average of 19 days fewer than February '12 & 23 days fewer than Feb '11.
