April was a good month to sell homes in northeast Meridian. The Intermountain Multiple Listing Service reported that 58 homes closed there in April, compared with 46 in March. What's more, those homes sold for an average median price of $242,050, a 17 percent increase from the month before.

Other Ada County markets heating up in April included the North End (17 more sales and a 17 percent median price increase) and the Bench (five more sales and a 14.6 percent increase).

Median prices fell in Canyon County but not in south Nampa. The area, which at 72 home sales trailed only northwest Meridian for the highest-selling market in the Treasure Valley, saw its median price increase by 15 percent from March to April.

The median price fell in Eagle by 10 percent and in Northwest Boise by 9.7 percent.
