The average rent per square foot has fluctuated in the date range from January 2006 to January 2015. However, it has been steadily increasing since January of 2010. The overall break down looks like this:

    Year          Overall   1 BR    2 BR   3 BR

January 2010:  $.82     $.94     $.75    $.67

We are experiencing a steady increase with a healthy jump into the year 2015.  As vacancies come in our managed properties we are raising everything across the board and renting most product almost immediately.  Wow, does this feel good after the last 8 years.  It is healthy out there.

The steady growth of employment is a great indicator for Boise and surrounding areas. This lends to steadier incomes, more disposable income and people with money to invest.
