Unrealistic Real Estate
Let's be real. Idaho's coveted Treasure Valley housing market is inundated with top-dollar luxury listings.
From Nampa to the North End and beyond, jaw-dropping builds are around every corner in the valley. What's more, the highly visible and remarkable clusters of wealth can make it easy to forget the growing number of locals struggling to keep a roof over their heads.

Boise Needs More Affordable Housing

Born and raised Idaho natives are the tradesmen and tradeswomen pouring the foundations for mega-mansions in Eagle. They're outfitting Boise Bench kitchens with custom-made cabinetry and delivering sophisticated, high-end appliances that cost more than the car they drove to work.
Yet despite how hard they labor, or how many jobs they're holding down, the likelihood they'll own a luxury, or even a mid-level listing is slim at best. When locals with two or more jobs are forced to choose between the mortgage, rent, gas, or food, it's obvious the Boise-area needs more affordable housing options and listings.

Luxury Listings Aren't the Devil, Bobby

Listen, Bobby. There's nothing wrong with wanting or owning a high-end property. If affording a four-bed, four-bath $895k waterfront home in Star suits your budget, we're happy for you. But for many Idahoans, that's not in the cards.

Low-Listings Make Ya' Jump! Jump!

This is why we jumped on this low-listing like a half-priced, in-season Coach bag!
On the surface, the home appears structurally sound and well cared for. At just under two thousand square-feet, it isn't the most spacious home, but with a little imagination and determination, a family of four on a tight budget could make it work.
