Payette has a sleepy, small town feel with the charm of a town that has had steady, slow growth over the past 120 years. Due to its location, many of its residents work in Ontario and surrounding areas making it a bedroom community. Also, the age of Payettes residents is higher then the state average due to the number of retirees living here. With its close proximity to Ontario and the lack of sales tax there, many Payette residents prefer to do their shopping there. Payette has a beautiful park, a county museum, and an excellent library.
Payette is a great little city with tons of historic charm. If you are seeking a quiet home-town atmosphere, a bit off the beaten path and outside of the high-growth areas of the Eastern and Central Treasure Valley, Payette may just be the place for you!
Payette experienced fairly rapid growth in its early days from 1895 to 1920. Payette has experience steady, slow growth over the past 100 yeears with slight increases in growth during the 40s, 70s, and 90s. Existing homes number over 500 built prior to 1920 and less than 2500 built in the 100 years since then. There is some limited new home construction, primarily in-fill development. Growth is very slow compared to the rest of the Treasure Valley with less than 100 homes built over the past 10 years. However, the rapidlyrising prices throughout Southwest Idaho has pushed more people into the wetern Treasure Valley communities shrinking the inventory of homes for sale in Payette, and pushing prices up. On the other hand, homes sold during 2018 average $100 per foot, well below the neighboring communities to the east.
