If you're in the market for a home in the Treasure Valley...good luck! Or, at least I thought.  With prices on homes skyrocketing, it's nuts watching just how expensive it is now to buy a home in my own hometown. Believe me, even though I am open and planning to move and experience a new place...SOMEDAY...I'd love to own a home here and STOP renting. With people paying more than asking price and homes flying off of the market in 24-hours and sometimes less, it's intimidating.

According to recent survey, when it comes to first-time home buyers like (potentially) myself, Boise ranks as the SECOND best place in the nation to do that.

The results released by WalletHub measured a ton of factors, such as affordability and quality of life. Turns out even with rising prices, Boise is still crazy affordable.

The top city was Henderson, Nevada.
