Everything is the most expensive in the land when it comes to Boise real estate. I hate it. You hate it. But it's the harsh reality of the market. Am I allowed to blame crypto currency for no reason? I can't help but think Dogecoin and Ethereum have something to do with it. But also don't ask me to explain what either of those are.

In any case, it's always fun to look at houses we can't afford, right? I can't be the only one who scrolls through Zillow excitedly as though it's porn. Which it is. It's real estate porn. SNL even did a sketch about it.

Soooo, if you had to choose, which of these Boise homes completely out of your price range gets your vote as worth the cost if you had an abundance of cash chillin' in your bank account?

First up, this 2,666 sqft home. Here's the exterior. Literally nothing else about it is remarkable enough to warrant more photos. I don't mean that rudely, of course. It just isn't terribly unique. But it is spacious.

Or this 4.400 sqft beauty? She's a two story, which drops her down in appeal for me. But that's a lot of square footage for  damn near the same price as the first house.

The difference in price is only $99! And the latter is the cheaper one. Go figure. So if you had to choose, which is it? For me I loathe climbing stairs. So much that it's a deal breaker. So I'm going with the one story that has a great deal less square footage.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
