Click here to check for the most current home sale statistics.

According to the Boise MLS  (Intermountain MLS), July posted 494 home sales in Ada County- down 24%.  This is actually one of the smaller declines we've seen over the last year and a half as most months have posted 30% to 40% declines.

Inventory levels also were down from year ago, the first year-over-year decline in 28 months.  Some think this could be a sign of the bottom of the housing market.  While this is a positive sign, the decline in the number of homes for sale is likely not because of homes selling but homes coming off the market to be rented, etc.  They are homes that will be for sale again when the market begins to improve or next spring.

Thank you in advance.
