It’s hot, hot, hot in the 83704.

That’s according to a new report at Realtor.com.

The website features the hottest zip codes when it comes to real estate activity. What we are learning is that millennials are ditching big-city life, heading to the suburbs and places like Boise.

Older millennials, in particular, are driving new demand for homes in suburban areas and are doing so at a 10 percent increase over the last decade. Realtor.com used 30,000 zip codes and analyzed the amount of time it took to sell properties and how frequently they were viewed to determine the hottest spots.

Anyone who lives in the Boise region knows about the natural beauty and community feel, but those are not the only factors driving new homebuyers to places like Boise. Millennials, like so many others, are looking for opportunities that provide affordable housing, robust local economies, outdoor attractions, and cultural amenities – which Boise knows plenty about.

If you’re prepared to make a move to one of the hottest zip codes in America, here’s how to get started. Get pre-approved for a loan first. If you want an upper hand, here are some simple rules you can follow:

  • Don’t open new lines of credit during this critical time.
  • Keep the status quo on your accounts and stay current.
  • Don’t close or consolidate credit accounts.
  • Save money and refrain from big purchases.
  • Keep your bank account consistent and do not make any irregular deposits.
  • Discuss any loan payoff with a loan advisor first.
