Unlike other tools, Balsamiq helps you to design wireframes and wireframes alone effortlessly. So, if you are looking for a tool to design just wireframes alone, then Balsamiq does a great job at it.
You can decide to make wireframe sketches or make clean wireframe designs. The sweetest thing is that it’s fast and has a lot of UI elements to match your thought-out design.

Balsamiq Review 2017 | Wireframing within a budget
One of the best wireframing program providers around is Balsamiq, a company founded by a former senior software engineer from Adobe in 2008. They are based in multiple countries such as United States, Italy, France and Germany. Balsamiq offers a graphical user interface mockup builder application that allows you to arrange certain elements to build the foundation of your website. While it is a relatively new company compared to other known ones in the industry, they still have made it onto our top 10.

(2015) How to Use Mockups to Get Buy-in and Speed Up Your Releases - TechProductManagement
The type of tool will depend on your goal. I personally like Balsamiq (https://balsamiq.com/) because it is very easy to use. But, since I’m usually not the one doing the mockups, I’ll leave it to my UX team to decide. Other very popular tools are Sketch (http://bohemiancoding.com/sketch/) and Axure (http://www.axure.com/).

Like you mention, a lot of people like to develop prototypes directly in code using tools like Bootstrap. In my experience, that takes too much time and effort if the goal is simply to convey ideas and foster communication. A simple wireframe in Balsamiq might work best.

Ask HN: Why do people pay for Balsamiq, when there are better free alternatives? | Hacker News
Balsamiq is nice for making something that you want to show to clients I.e. email or put up on a monitor. It's extremely inexpensive for what it does.
As a counter your point, I think a lot of professionals prefer something that is more likely be continually developed and supported in the future - a lot of free things go away or stop getting developed after a few years.

Validating your product design ideas with low-fidelity wireframes
You can create wireframes in all major design software, but for low fidelity wireframes in particular i’d recommend Balsamiq.
Their drag and drop library of low fidelity components makes it quick and easy to build layouts for testing and refinement.
The rough visual aesthetic of the components helps to keep things informal too, and ensures you and the people you are sharing them with focus on the bigger picture, rather than design details.
Obviously the level of detail you want to go to at this stage is entirely up to you but it’s worth noting that the key things you should be focusing on at this stage are -
Mapping user flows and journeys
Navigation
Page structure and layouts
Content information and hierarchy

Balsamiq and Axure - key to the success in prototyping -
Balsamiq is an amazing tool because of its limits and simplicity. First of all, it has sketchy, wireframe look. Thanks to that no one will think it’s the design proposal. Sometimes it happens when your colleagues, boss or client has troubles with imagining things. It’s quite common that people need to see the actual project before they can say if they like it or not.

Balsamiq offers also partially interaction. It is possible to link pages between each other. But it’s impossible to create more sophisticated structures. You may say “how come this could be an advantage?” Well, it is! Because it prevents from spending too much time on early stage ideas. Thanks to this we don’t feel like we’re too engaged to get rid of one idea and replace it with completely new one. And this feature is really easy to underestimate while it’s a real project saviour!

Balsamiq also allows creating interactive mockups, to share them and to run a presentation or a user test. For those who use Google Drive, Confluence Wiki or JIRA it becomes even more convenient since it’s possible to get the Balsamiq as a plugin for each of them.

There is one more reason why it’s worth to start with Balsamiq. It’s simple and intuitive. A perfect tool for the beginning of the project. Allows for quick response for changing conditions.

With Balsamiq, you can run a user test and react very quickly to the feedback you get. It’s easy and you don’t need to spend hours on training to create your own prototype. Plus you can easily connect your project with Jira, Confluence or Google Drive which allows every member of the team to be involved and up to date all the time.

Balsamiq Review - Balsamiq is a great tool for designers by Ian S. February 16, 2017
What do you like best?
As a designer who also specializes in graphic recording, I have to recommend Balsamiq as a prototyping tool. Even if you can't draw, it has plenty of options for making mock-ups. Anybody with any level of basic design knowledge can use this.

What do you dislike?
What I don't like is that it can be a little daunting to set up. If you don't have any prior experience with say, Adobe Indesign, you may run into some trouble with this program.

Recommendations to others considering the product
This is a DESIGNER tool, so it's highly recommended that you have some prior design knowledge before jumping into this. It's a great tool for UI/UX design as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Basically we're setting up a way (similar to basecamp) where everybody can be on the same page with a website's development. Multiple people can see where a project is from start-to-finish, and we can make edits on the fly. It's a super useful program that makes everything stream-lined.

Balsamiq Review - A simple strait forward wire framing app that is a little clunky. by John S. March 03, 2017
What do you like best?
I love focused tools. This application allows you to focus on content placement without the distraction of trying to design high resolution mockups, and when your done, you can make a quick interactive demo which I love.

What do you dislike?
The application can feel a little clunky at times. I attribute this to the nature of the platform it was written on. I would like to see some richer prototype interactions as well. Simple point and click is perfect for most scenarios, but being able to make it feel a little more like a prototype and less like a static slideshow would be desirable.

Recommendations to others considering the product
There are similarities between this application and the Pencil project. I recommend trying that first and seeing if it fulfills your needs. If commercial support is important to you, this is a great next step.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I am able to make quick wireframe mockups to share with my customers without the time intensive distraction of high resolution mockups. The simple interface and direct nature of the components allow me to contact my customers quicker with something tangible and this gets them involved earlier. This helps me develop the right product, but it also makes them feel they are making real progress earlier in the process.
