We get it. Idaho isn't top of mind when people imagine glamorous real estate or luxe living, but don't let the Gem State's humble reputation fool you.

Idaho has a lot to offer to all kinds of kinds, including Hollywood A-listers and some of the wealthiest people in the world. Surprised? You won't be after we run down a list of reasons the ultra-rich and famous put down Idaho roots.

Idaho is breathtakingly beautiful and private.

Experience has taught us that people who work hard love to play hard, and celebrities are no different. Home to the Rocky Mountains, dreamy green forests, and pristine lakes and rivers, Idaho offers endless opportunities for outdoor adventure.

Even for the most overexposed stars, Idaho offers an escape from reality and the paparazzi. Many of the state's cities and towns are small enough to feel welcoming and neighborly yet large enough to offer all the amenities and services that more affluent people expect without sacrificing comfort or safety.

It's easy on the eyes and your wallet. 

If there's one thing people with money don't want to part ways with, it's money. In 2018, Forbes named Boise one of the best cities for tech startups and other businesses that appeal to highly successful people. It makes sense that our low taxes, affordable real estate, and opportunities for entrepreneurship would attract the wealthy.

Of course, it's impossible to talk about Idaho's appeal as a real estate market without mentioning the prices. Idaho's real estate market is still relatively affordable compared to other parts of the country, even in up-and-coming areas like Boise and Coeur d'Alene.

For wealthy buyers used to sky-high real estate prices and taxes in New York, California, or London, investing in Idaho property can be a smart financial move that still allows them to enjoy all the benefits of a luxury home.

From its natural beauty to its business opportunities, quality of life, affordability, and investment potential, Idaho is a state that offers something for everyone, especially those with deep pockets.
