The successful purchase of Boise Idaho foreclosures has been getting much more competitive as inventories decrease.  As can be seen below, there were fewer sales of foreclosure properties in June 2012 than at any other time since foreclosure records have been kept by the Intermountain MLS.  In 2011, the Boise Idaho foreclosure market share stayed mostly between 25% and 40%, and the beginning of 2012 was no exception even though February 2012 showed a decrease of 10 percentage points to a 25% market share.  Since March 2012, however, we’ve seen a steady and dramatic decline.

Buyers can still get a good value for their home-buying dollar with Boise Idaho foreclosures, but they may need to be more aggressive when making an offer.
