Boise Valley

Boise Valley made a regular appearance on national lists in 2017

 

Ann Morrison Park in downtown Boise

This week, my husband, Will, and I revisited our closed files for real estate in 2017. As we bundled them for storage, two things stood out to us: 1) We have been incredibly blessed and 2) out-of-state buyers accounted for nearly 40% of our sales. If my memory serves me, it seemed that most buyers said that they have friends or family already living here. Curious, I went to Boise Valley Economic Partnership’s website for more substantiating data. A great resource! Interestingly enough, Boise Valley/Idaho landed on 24 national lists in 2017. That’s an impressive number for just 12 months. I didn’t recognize all of the publications at a glance, so I provided links below for more details. Forbes ranked Boise in three separate lists, and Bloomberg ranked Idaho as the #1 Top Performing Economy. Here’s a look at each of the 24 entries, I categorized them by growth, lifestyle and recreation:
