There is nothing quite McCall, and more people each year seem to find our quaint little town on the lake surrounded by endless recreational & active lifestyle pursuits. People come to town to enjoy this very special place, and many come looking to find their slice of heaven, whether it's a summer cabin, or a place to call home full time.
Our nearest big town, Boise and the Treasure Valley continue to grow and more and more we see steady visitation of vacationers and vacation home seekers. With the growth of Boise, and it's continued high rankings as one of the best places to live and work in the country, McCall continues to be Boise's vacation place, and a destination for summer and winter recreation and tourism from visitors from other larger cities throughout the west.
The real estate market in McCall is healthy, and home values continue to gradually rise, though they're still below the market peaks of 2005-2007. Vacant land prices have held flat for years since the recession from 2009-2011, and still one can purchase a building lot in town for $50,000 to $70,000. The lowest priced single family homes are generally just above $250,000. Building costs have risen, with an estimate of approximately $250/sq ft minimum for good quality new construction.
Inventory is low right now, and most sellers with their properties on the market are serious about selling. Seasonally, we see the most showing activity during the summer, and the most closed sales in fall, with typically low inventory in the winter, more new listings coming on in Spring. If you're considering selling or considering purchasing a home in McCall, please contact Mike Maciaszek (208) 315-2945.
