Nampa Real Estate Market

The Nampa real estate market is on the rise and homes in the area are commanding higher and higher prices, however they are still more affordable than homes for sale in Boise or Meridian. Despite it’s rapid growth, Nampa still retains the charm of a much smaller town. There is a large historic downtown region with many homes that are well over 100 years old. Nampa is a great place to live and has something for every family regardless of whether they’re just starting out or are looking for the perfect acreage. While Nampa’s population is fairly large at just over 100,000 citizens it doesn’t seem so large because the city is sprawling. With plenty of room to grow out there is not a feeling of the city being crowded.
