Real estate is a tricky game to play. Even if you are lucky enough to be one of the people who understand the Idaho housing market, you are probably still surprised at how much prices have risen over the last few years and how much house you can get for your money now.

A million-dollar home today looks a lot different than a home valued at a million a decade ago. When I was a kid thinking about $1 million homes, those were the mansions, but that isn’t the case anymore. That doesn’t mean you can’t get a nice house for a million dollars. Zillow has loads of properties listed in that price range in Idaho with more than 5,000 square feet of space and multiple rooms.

But, if you head to 1 specific city in Idaho you’ll see housing prices that look extremely inflated. In fact, you’ll see the most overvalued homes in the United States in the capital city of the Gem State.
