The first thing that you will need to know about Boise is its layout. Boise is broken up into seven distinct areas: South Boise, West Valley, Downtown, the North End, East Boise, North Boise, and the Bench. One of the great things about Boise real estate is that all of these areas of the city have new homes, so you can search for the perfect one geographically to narrow your results.
East Boise also full of great new homes. It has plenty of great urban and suburban areas to live. Their new homes can come in nearly any style imaginable, making East Boise one of the most dynamic parts of the city. These homes can be anywhere from 2 – 4 bedroom dwellings with smaller yards, giving it a tight knit community type of feeling.
In East Boise there are dozens of great restaurants, novelty shops, and more. It is also home to some great parks like Barber Park which is the place where river floaters launch their rafts.

Downtown Boise is not a big area, not nearly the same caliber as Downtown New York or Seattle, but it is a distinct urban area of the city with all sorts of businesses, restaurants, shops, schools, --and of course—homes. It is located in the eastern half of the city close to the Foot Hills and the base of the Boise National Forest. Its fast paced city lifestyle and walkability are attractive qualities for many downtown residents.
In Downtown Boise there are many types of homes to choose from and they come in a variety of different designs and styles.

The North End
The North End is the area just north of downtown. It is the oldest suburban part of Boise, settled in the late 1800s. The North End is a very cozy and tight knit community that is popular for its aesthetically pleasing nature, great parks, amazing walkability, and novelty shops. The North End is an older part of town so it is mainly populated by older buildings—along with the majority of the city sanctioned historic districts.

These homes will usually be ranch and craftsman style homes with a few Tudor homes mixed in.
As far as great areas for amazing new construction, South Boise is the place to be. With dozens of new developments coming in each year, South Boise is the type of place where you couldn’t find yourself more than two miles from a new home.
