It is a very nice place to live and the community has many amenities. The homes are beautiful and are representative of some of the valleyâ€™s best builders. It is considered to be a little ways out so I'm sure with gas prices there's some reservation as there is little or no commercial infrastructure to support community.
Another issue and only my opinion here is the existing home owners trying to sell are competing with new construction in the final phase and being undercut by the same builders that sold them their homes. That makes it a tough market to play in with the incentives builders are offering (and not even those are speeding up the process with new home sales).
As with the rest of the market there are a lot of people whose equity has been tapped by declining prices and they are finding themselves unwilling to take a loss and keeping a sign in their front yard with their fingers crossed while it collects dust.
Now is the best time to buy out there is you've always liked it and thought it was out of your price range.
The location provides just enough distance from town that children can play outside, exploring Dry Creek, the farm, and the trails. Families watch over one another's children, keeping them safe. Kids can play like we used to when we were young. All of this, and it is still just a quick 15 minute drive over the hill via Cartwright Road to downtown Boise. No traffic, no streetlights, no stress!
I've lived in Hidden Springs since 2003 and we thoroughly enjoy raising our four sons in this friendly community. I'm happy to provide additional info or answer specific questions. Feel free to call or email.
