Idaho is famous for its bountiful potato crop — but that's not all it has to offer. In recent years, it's become a major destination for new residents who are drawn to the Gem State's rugged Rocky Mountains and scenic river basins.
Across Idaho, residents can choose between plenty of communities with top-rated public schools and abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation. Its biggest cities include Boise City, Meridian, and Nampa, to name a few.
Idaho also has its share of fun quirks. For example, it has one of the world's richest veins of star garnet, plus deposits of more than 70 other precious and semi-precious gems. In Boise, the State Capitol Building is the only one in the nation heated by geothermal hot springs.
If you're thinking of buying or selling in Idaho, these Idaho housing predictions and stats can help you make an informed decision.
