Dakota Crossing Subdivision
It is hard to appreciate the true beauty of the Treasure Valley unless you have seen Nampa, Idaho. At first, it may seem like a normal town as you pass by it on the freeway, but you might be surprised to find out how valuable, sought after, and well-populated it really is. It is a phenomenal place to live and with all the inexpensive homes and awesome building lots, there nothing quite to compare it to. One such place would have to be the Dakota Crossing subdivision. This mid-sized subdivision is just off of Karcher Road in southwestern Nampa and is home to a couple dozen building lots and a handful of already existing homes. It is a new development with amazing potential. The existing homes are contemporary ranch style dwellings. They have either 5 or 6 bedrooms (smaller homes can be ordered as well) and they have an average of 3000 square feet or so of interior space.
As far as exterior space is concerned, they all have around a quarter of an acre of land with fenced and unfenced backyards. Their facades are lined with siding and stone. They are usually adorned with earth tones and light blue hues which can most be customized for the customer. The homes in Dakota Crossing subdivision also have attached two and three car garages, allowing for maximum storage or working areas.

However, there is more to the Treasure Valley than Nampa, Boise, and Meridian. In fact, there is a lot more.
Of all the metropolitan areas in the United States, the Treasure Valley is one of the most underappreciated. It is home to 6 of the state’s most populated and popular cities and towns. There are about 600 thousand people that call the Treasure Valley home between the two dozen or so cities and towns that are located here, which makes it one of the largest in the Northwest. But what makes this area of Idaho so amazing?
One thing that continually draws people to the Treasure Valley is the sheer number of activities that there are to enjoy here. It doesn't matter if you prefer inside, outside, hot, or cold, you will have something to enjoy. The Treasure Valley is a modern urban city with so many connections with the environment around it that it is easily the gateway to the great outdoors. You can easily enjoy a day in the Foothills hiking, spying local wildlife, and breathing the fresh mountain air, and then spend the evening at your favorite bar or restaurant.
This best-of-both-worlds quality is something that keeps people coming to town year after year and that is a figure that doesn’t seem to be slowing. However, it isn’t just the activities that bring people to the Treasure Valley, the inexpensive cost of land and real estate, in general, is another, very persuasive motivator as well. The median cost of a house in Nampa is $133,000 according to Zillow.com (http://www.zillow.com/nampa-id/home-values/) which is about $50,000 lower that the median price throughout the United States (http://www.zillow.com/home-values/) and nearly $1,000,000 less than the price of a home in San Francisco (http://www.zillow.com/san-francisco-ca/home-values/).
