Current Ada County Home Prices and Sales

2005: total homes sold 12,222
         existing home sales: 7736
         new construction: 4886

1/2006 - 11/2006: total homes sold: 9480
         existing home sales: 6017
         new construction: 3421

Keep in mind that new residential construction within the cities of Boise, Eagle, Meridian, Star, and Garden City will continue. Given the cities' new construction, plus re-sales of existing homes, and the fact that in the biggest home sale year ever we had only a total of 12,222 homes sold...how can the number of homes to be build in planned communities be absorbed into the local economy without causing an extreme negative impact on the overall housing market?
