Treasure Valley leads Idaho gains in home price appreciation

November 26, 2013 

Home prices are up across Idaho, and especially in the Treasure Valley.

Existing single-family home prices rose 9.6 percent in Idaho compared to one year ago, according to data released by the Idaho Housing and Finance Association. Idaho's appreciation rate was 13th highest in the nation and beat the 8.4 percent national average.

Home price appreciation in the Treasure Valley rose by 12.4 percent, nearly doubling since its low point in 2009. Coeur d'Alene was second at 6.8 percent, followed by Lewiston at 2.5 percent. Eastern Idaho saw slight decreases from one year ago, with Pocatello and Idaho Falls home price appreciation falling just below zero percent.

The data was compiled using data from mortgages sold to or guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.
