According to, the national median home price for August 2023 was $435,000. It’s down a smidge from July’s price of $440,000 but up .7% from the same time a year ago. That number is painful to look at. It gets more painful if you’re trying to find a home in Idaho for that price!

Idaho Business Review reports that the median price of a home in Idaho is $462,800. That’s 2.2% lower than the same time last year, but still more than $20,000 over the national average. Living in Boise, you may have predicted that number would be even higher and your gut feeling is spot on. Based on the over 1,000 homes that currently has listed for Boise, the median listing price is $575,000. That’s up nearly 5% from a year ago. And thanks to higher mortgage rates, the monthly mortgage payment for a typical home rose by more than $1,200 from a year ago.
