I forgot to mention that. Yup, the other advantage of them moving into the older more established neighborhoods in the foothills of boise is that there are no neighborhood association fees. The vast majority of upscale newer developments have homeowner association fees.

We just bought in Eagle. Great deals in Eagle, maybe better value for the money than any other area around Boise. We got a 3000 sqft house with a ton for upgrades for $243K...owner paid $515K in 2006. We like Eagle for a lot of the reasons others mentioned as undesireable - we have space, the houses aren't TOO on top of each other (nothing like Meridian), we don't hear traffic, neighborhoods are pleasant, and quiet. We are also only about 15-20 mins from downtown Boise (not during rush hour).

That being said - HOAs do suck. We pay $900/year. Unless you find a lot somewhere not in a subdivision, you are probably looking at HOA fees just about anywhere in the area. My brother in law in Lochsa Falls (Meridian) pays $600/yr and they don't even have a pool.

A lot of the places for sale in Eagle are 5 acres or more which is why the area has more people in the upper income.

ADA assessments (in a general sense) look to be down again in 2010...but especially hard hit will be the homes in excess of $500K. this will hit eagle disproportionately hard. values getting dynamically better -- but better have a 2-3 year time horizon for demand to catch up to supply.

and yes...growing pains = greater taxes.
