What $1,200/Month in Rent Will Get You In Boise Right Now
We all know that buying a house in Boise is difficult unless you have a fat stack of cash lying around somewhere. I don't know about you but I'm working on my pile of money so for now, renting is the way to go!
That's not to say renting is the absolute best option either, but it certainly seems to be a little friendly on the wallet these days. RentCafe.com reports that the average rent in Boise is $1,677 a month with an average apartment size of 877 sq. ft. RentCafe.com says that the average rent in Nampa is $1,518 a month with an average apartment size of 1,021 sq. ft.
Things get a little more pricey in Meridian with RentCafe reporting that the average rent in Meridian is $1,798 with an average apartment size of 976 sq. ft.
This had me wondering: what could you get in the Boise area for under $1,200 a month? Using information from Trulia.com, we searched for homes under that price and surprisingly, found some sweet homes!
You have to check out the property below at S. Essex Way too. The deposit is only $1,200 and dogs are allowed! It'll be ready in January but there is a catch - the capacity is limited to just 3 people and you'll be sharing the property and land with other people.
It's not that bad though, right? I mean, if you're able to live in an apartment or a townhome that's connected to other residents, you should have no problem saving some bucks on these homes.
Let's take a look at what you can get in Boise and the surrounding area for under $1,200 a month.
