83657 Ola Idaho Homes and Lifestyle
Age of Homes Ola homes saw a boom in building from 1990-1999, with a close second of 1980-1989. This trend of growth has continued through 2000-2004, and the opportunity for continued development remains. Meaning the majority of Ola properties available for purchase will be under 30 years old.
Home Values The median house/condo value as of 2009 was $196,619—slightly above the Idaho real estate average of $171,700—due to growth and value development of homes in the Ola area. The mean price for detached houses in 2009 was approximately $422,942, while the mean price for mobile homes was $93,750.
Area Information The majority of residents work at home—51%, while 35% drive a car to work alone, and 14% enjoy a carpool commute to work. Commuting to and from work for the bulk of workers is a 40-59 minute drive, while a few have a 15-19 minute drive to work. The top industry in Ola is healthcare and social assistance; specifically, outpatient mental health and substance abuse centers.
The estimated population in this area, as of 2009, is approximately 230 (up from 171 in 2000). As of January 2011, the cost of living index for this area was 83.2, which is low as compared to the US average of 100.
Neighborhoods & Parks Fishers and anglers are in for a treat in Ola—with several fishing spots to choose from—Gold Run Creek, Jackson Creek, Kimball Creek, Joes Creek, and Muir Creek have plenty of opportunities for catch-and-release. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore Eagle Island State Park located in nearby Eagle, Idaho. Every year, residents gather in Emmett (just a few minutes away from Ola) to participate in the Emmett Cherry Festival—a celebration of the fine agricultural abundance the area has to offer. The major appeal is that, through sponsorship, the event is completely free—and friendly. Golfers can enjoy the Gem County Golf Association Recreation Golf Course—a 9 hole course with cart rentals and a cafe.
Nearby Shopping Because of the short jaunt to several places of activity, shopping is a treat for Ola inhabitants—Macy's in Boise, the Old Boise Historic District, and the Karcher Mall in Nampa all provide different shopping experiences. After a day of shopping, many people enjoy going over to Kit's Riverside Restaurant in Horseshoe Bend, or the Cougar Mountain Lodge in Cascade. There are many dining adventures to be had in the Ola area, as well as shopping treats and treasures.
For anybody seeking a quiet place to reside, with enough surrounding activity to be busy, Ola homes and properties is worth considering.
