Forbes.com recognizes Boise, Idaho (again)!

Real Estate Agent with Silvercreek Realty Group

Once again, Forbes.com has recognized the Greater Boise, Idaho area as a great place to live and work! 

The Boise-Nampa area came in at #6 on the  Forbes list of "Top 10 Pay-Raise Citites"   with a wage increase of 2.2%.  Forbes.com cited "Idaho's quirky mix of agriculture, lumber, mining and high-tech manufacturing gives it a far different profile than most states. Unusual job skills for niche industries can remain in demand during recessions, since those jobs can't be filled by just anyone." 

The article states "To track the rise and fall of wages across the U.S., the Brookings Institute, using data from Moody's Economy.com, calculated average wages, adjusted for inflation, for the 100 largest metropolitan areas in the U.S. Cities are ranked by the rate of change between the last three months of 2008 and first three months of 2009."

So, if you needed one more reason to decide that Boise, Nampa, or Meridian Idaho is a great place to own Real Estate, there it is!

Awesome! Sounds like a lovely place to relocate to. I have to come for a visit when I plan to tour the national parks with the wee people. :-)
