Boise , ID - 40°

I love living in the Boise Valley. I grew up in the West end of the Treasure Valley on a farm and since marrying my husband we have lived in Boise. Our children have attended college here and are now starting their own families and choosing to settle here. Needless to say we love it here.

There have been a lot of changes in the Treasure Valley throughout the years. Boise has all the rewards of a big city while maintaining that friendly hometown feeling.

Through combining low FHA rates and current low down payment requirements, borrowers looking to purchase a home are still able to find great affordable homes.
