If you’ve been wanting to make the move out of the state you’re currently residing in, but are unsure where you want to land, may we suggest Idaho?

Idaho recently topped a list of the 10 best states for homeowners for the second year in a row, and it’s no surprise why. The report found that our state checked all of the boxes for being a desirable place to call “home.” Some of the factors used to rank the list included home value appreciation, effective property tax rate, safety stats, volume of foreclosures and more.

In the” Gem State,” it’s both affordable and lucrative to purchase real estate. Median property taxes are $1,408 and home values rose 12.12 percent from 2017 to 2018.

In Boise specifically, we enjoy quite a few luxuries that make it a great place to live.

For starters, Boise is one of the best run cities in the country. And if you’re looking for fresh air? Look no further. The mayor recently announced a goal of 100 percent clean energy for city-owned buildings by 2030.

Perhaps most exciting is our local thriving economy. Commercial real estate development is booming, and that’s great news for those seeking employment because new developments bring new jobs. Plus, residents regularly enjoy new places to dine, shop and have fun at. Take a quick peek at some of these places on our blog.

Last but certainly not least, did we mention all of the scenery? We are privy to stunning views and open space lands that offer plentiful wildlife sightings and you never have to go far to enjoy a beautiful landscape in Boise.
