As a leading Meridian ID new home builder with solid roots in the Treasure Valley, we at Brighton Homes are thrilled that Idaho has been named the #3 Best State in the US by USNews. Of course, we already knew this was a great place to live!

Fiscal stability, a strong economy, and low crime rates helped place our state near the top of the rankings. Idaho ranked #2 in Economy and Fiscal Stability. Within the Economy category, it topped the list at #1 in Growth. Lots of new development is happening in the state as new residents are drawn here for many reasons, including a good job market and an abundance of active outdoor lifestyle opportunities. Economic development helps put Idaho at #5 in Employment. The state boasts 2.4% job growth, while the national average is less than that at 0.2%. Development-friendly policies attract new businesses and contribute to a ranking of #8 in the Business Environment. It’s a great place to start a new business or relocate an existing one.

Idaho also makes the top ten in Crime and Corrections (#9) and infrastructure (#10).

The fast-growing city of Meridian ID is now the second largest in the state after Boise. Brighton’s new home communities in Meridian are perfect for those who want to join in the area’s prosperity.

Pinnacle is located in southeast Meridian in the SoMe district. This new community features an array of home designs in a park-like setting. City conveniences are just moments away. Residents will enjoy on-site access to outstanding amenities, including a large central park with an amphitheater, two swimming pools, a community center, playgrounds, and walking paths. A charter school and retail area are also planned for Pinnacle. The community is next to Meridian’s Discovery Park. The park is being expanded and will have a bike park, skate park, sports courts, and picnic facilities in addition to the existing ball fields, dog park, climbing wall, play structures, and more.

Quartet is our newest community in north Meridian. Homes will be built on large lots. Quartet will have a swimming pool, walking paths, and green spaces.
