Sales and prices of treasure valley land sold for development are on the rise. National real estate developers entering the Boise-area market skyrocketed sales of land in Treasure Valley for residential development last year, according to a Boise commercial real estate agency.

The entry of builders such as Lennar and KB Homes helped sell more than 4,500 acres for residential development, up 62% from 2020, reports TOK Commercial. The dollar value reached $300 million, more than double the 2020 total. That’s about $67,000 per acre.

“Residential land is expected to remain in high demand, but increased eligibility risk and municipal policies on residential growth will pose ongoing challenges for developers,” the report said. A right is a set of local government approvals needed to develop a property.

Builders set a record by applying for 7,500 permits last year for new homes, TOK said. Their combined value totaled more than $2 billion. That’s about $267,000 per house.

It was also a big year for industrial land, with nearly 600 acres sold for a total of $72 million, mostly in Canyon County, TOK said.
