The Idaho Department of Lands recently released information on their latest auction of 30 Payette Lake lots sales. The sale took place in Boise on August 19th during a public auction. The sale generated over $12,605,500 for the endowment funds that support the Idaho public school systems and State hospital south.
The Idaho Constitution requires a public auction for the disposal of state endowment trust lands, and IDL can accept no less than the appraised value of the properties.
Sales from last year’s auction ranged from $40,000 – $68,000 for second and third tier lake front lots, sales of similar lots this year ranging from $55,000 – 83,000. Lake front lots last year went $480,000 – $1,155,000, this year’s sales of lake front ranged from $400,000 – $1,570,000.
There were three lots last year that were not able to sell at auction, two of the three went up for auction again this year and sold with a higher sales price than the minimum reserve that was not met last year.
2230 Payette Drive sold this year for $872,000 – last year there was no sale at $860,000.
990 Pine Haven sold this year for $72,000 – last year there was no sale at $70,000.
This is very consistent to what we are seeing in McCall’s real estate market this year. Our average sales prices are increasing and inventory shrinking. This year’s State auction will continue to nudge our real estate prices up in the McCall Area.
