With the way the housing market is in Boise, I think it's fair to use the word "crisis." That's what we're dealing with. Homes that were $200,000 in 2019 are now going for more than $700,000 and I'm not even exaggerating that much. Even the Upper-Middle class is finding it hard to afford to own a home in Boise. As more and more of us are priced out of owning, we are turning to renting--and you best believe the landlords in this town know it.
So now that we know what some of the problems are that the Boise rental market is currently facing what can be done about it? Well the Boise City Council is working on a new rental ordinance in hopes of making things at least a bit better and focusing on making changes for short-term rentals.
