I’m often asked why it’s so hard to find a home in Boise, Meridian, or Eagle with a basement.
It’s a valid question and there’s a simple answer.
There are very few homes with basements in the Boise real estate market due to our high groundwater table.
Despite our high-desert environment, it’s common to encounter soggy soil conditions a couple of feet beneath the surface throughout much of the Treasure Valley.
Water-laden soils aren’t a good match for basements (or swimming pools either, for that matter).
There are some areas/subdivisions where homes with basements exist, but they’re somewhat rare.
If you’re looking for a home with a basement, I know where to find them.
Simply give me a call at (208)938-5533 or e-mail me and I’ll be happy to help!
