Maybe you are buying your first home in Idaho, or perhaps you’re relocating to Idaho from another state. Either way, it’s important that you educate yourself on Idaho home loans before shopping for a home and mortgage. This article explains what you will need to know before buying a home in Idaho:

The median price of a home in Idaho is $106,300. Recently, homes in Idaho have been appreciating at rates slightly below the national average. Therefore, affordability is favorable in the state of Idaho. In fact, Idaho has the highest rate of home ownership in the nation.

The price of homes in Idaho varies widely between zip codes. For example, in Boise, Idaho, the median price of a home in the summer of 2005 was $195,000; however, in Meridian, Idaho, the median price of a home was $177,000, and in Eagle, Idaho, it was $210,000. Average interest rates in Idaho are equal to the national average.

Idaho is one of only 14 states that uses a “Deed of Trust” as a mortgage. This means that a trustee holds the title of a house for a lender rather than the mortgage company itself.

If you’re buying a home in the state of Idaho, you qualify for both federal and state housing assistance. Low income borrowers can qualify for down payment assistance, and borrowers with special needs can receive certain types of assistance with buying a home. These programs are available through Idaho’s HOME program.
