We’re thankful to build in Idaho – the 2nd state with the highest increase in home prices

There’s more evidence that the housing market is recovering, both on a national and state level. From July 2011 to July 2012, CoreLogic reports that U.S. home prices increased 3.8% nationally, which is the largest year-over-year rise in the past six years. Better yet, Idaho reports a full 10% gain during that same time. Arizona tops the national list with Idaho placing second, followed by Utah, South Dakota and Colorado rounding out the top five rankings. Our local MLS chapter, Intermountain Multiple Listing Service, anticipates that Idaho will stay at or near the 10% mark through the remainder of the year.

On a day-to-day level, we are seeing more contracts coming in and just an overall rise in our production. We’ve balanced the last four years better than some, but it’s great to be busy again! Our reputation of delivering quality homes at fair prices has undoubtedly contributed to our place in the market. We’re thankful for the incredible lifestyle Idaho offers. Our local economy offers many opportunities for business, and the recreational activities are almost endless. We are especially thankful for our Tahoe family of clients, friends and real estate professionals who continue to help us succeed.
