Colorado Real Estate is on the rise.

steamboat1204_041_2592

Until yesterday I have heard and read doubt about the market and how the market is sliding down hill (The reason for the picture of Callie and me), but this is not what the numbers are saying.  Using our RE/MAX Alliance Boulder, CO Real Estate office as a barometer of our market September may just be the turning point in the market. 

Two weeks ago I speculated that September 15th, the one anniversary of the fall of Lehman Brothers, is going to be the fulcrum point of the housing recovery.  Year over year sale are going to begin to rise and as a result positive news will begin to fuel buyer confidence.  The last two weeks have indicated maybe Cyndy did not slip something special in my coffee.  in 2007 we posted 77

Yesterday we looked at absorption rates for Longmont, CO and Boulder, CO and what a difference 15 miles can make.  This morning just to give everyone a little more insight into the markets I am posting Superior, CO and Louisville, Co as well:

Superior's Month Supply of Inventory:

superior_msi_1251

Louisville's Month Supply of Inventory:

louisville_msi_1251

Here are two markets that currently have three to four months of inventory and can truly be seen as Seller's Markets.  So we have a very interesting mix in Boulder County.  Boulder is a strong Buyer's Market, Longmont can be seen as a balanced market and Superior and Louisville are showing characteristic of being a strong Seller's market.  These three markets all exist within 25 square miles.

Longmont, CO Absorption Rates:

0909longmont_1260

Today I pulled Longmont, Colorado's absorption rate and saw a great example of where real estate is truly local. 

Currently, Longmont has 5.5 months of inventory which is just starting to move into a market that is a Sellers market.  What is even more interesting is when we compare this to the 10 months of inventory available in August 2007.  When I compared the numbers for Boulder, CO, Nederland, CO, Lousiville, CO and Lafayette, CO the numbers were all very different and this is an are of only 25+/- square miles.  This is an excellent example of why Buyers should work with a knowlegeable Real Estate Broker, one who truly knows the markets in and around the area.  Reference below to see Boulder's very different

What a wonderful opportunity to experience first hand the quality education our children receive from the teachers in the Boulder Valley School District. The children spent three days learning about the outdoors, but also learning about respect, friendship, leadership, and the power of putting others first.
