6.9 percent increase in home prices
Ada County, the state’s most populous county, saw home sales rise 14.9 percent year over year in October. Homes spent 45 days on the market before being sold, down 22.4 percent from last year. A 38 percent increase in pending sales bodes well for next month’s sales numbers.
