Market Update May 2020

For the second consecutive month, home sales in Ada County were lower than the same month in 2019, as REALTORS® and consumers heeded Idaho’s stay-home order for any non-essential transactions.

Closed sales were down 29.7% compared to May of 2019, but as this is a backward-looking metric, it primarily reflects buyer activity during March and April when more restrictions around showings and open houses were in place.

However, pending sales, or properties with an accepted offer that should close within 30-60 days, were up 4.7% in May 2020 compared to last year, and up 25.4% compared to April. The 1,957 pending properties, which were almost evenly split between the new construction and existing/resale, will be reflected in the sales data in June and July.

Class of 2020

This past week most of the high schools in our great state have had some sort of a graduation. Whether it be a ceremony with many less people, a turn the tassel in the parking lot or a virtual ceremony with all of their classmates and staff, you completed your high school career. That is a great accomplishment not to be taken lightly. I read this note below and wanted to share it and send a big shout out to the graduates of the Class of 2020 and to their families...

To the Resilient Class of 2020:

When you walked on campus last fall -FINALLY a Senior- you had no idea the challenges and disappointments that would come your way. We agree. It's not fair. 

We cannot bring back your Senior Prom, Senior Night, Senior Walk, your athletic season or give you more time to have your friends and favorite teachers sign your yearbook. To make things worse, the increased pending fear of having graduations being postponed or cancelled is heartbreaking, and something most of you do not want to think about. We know that you have worked so hard and waited your entire life for this. 

Success is measured by the challenges you face, and every journey has its challenges. We see you, and your strength is truly inspiring. As you move forward, remember that these experiences will forever bind you together in an unforgettable way. 

Although it may look different this year, the message is the same...YOU EARNED THIS!

Be proud, stand tall and take a deep breath as you move forward. 

The Class of 2020 is a Class to be remembered!
