Just as the dust settles from one article regarding Boise, two more arise. Yes, Boise has hit National Media attention once again with two recent articles. This goes hand in hand with all the wonderful things to do and see in and around Boise, and why people that live here, Love it!

The two most recent articles are below, but first, our very own Boise Valley Economic Partnership along with the Boise Chamber of Commerce has created a video about Boise that is gaining National attention as well. Those of us that live here often find it hard to express why we live here and what we love about it, but this video does a great job! Take a look.


Boise ranked #11 in the Top 100 Best Places to Live, Livability study, coming in with a LiveScore of 630. This is just 16 points shy of the top ranked city, Palo Alto California at 646. The full article and study can be found at http://livability.com/top-100-best-places-to-live#/boise/id.  This article states the median home price for Boise is $137,500, however being a Realtor in Boise we know that the current Median price year to date is $195,000 for Ada County which includes Boise. Real Estate data is local so it is very important to contact a local Realtor for up to date and accurate Real Estate information.

Boise ranked #5 on CNN’s 10 Best Places to Retire. while our Northwest neighboring cities ranked as follows: Salt Lake #7, Colorado Springs #8, and Spokane #9. See the entire article at http://money.cnn.com/gallery/retirement/2013/10/28/best-places-to-retire.moneymag/5.html¬†Although we agree with CNN about Boise being an excellent place to retire, the Real Estate data again proves inaccurate and shows the need yet again to talk with a local Real Estate agent.
