Wonderland Lake Boulder, CO

Requirements will remain stringent but banks are coming into alignment with the true risk involved with a loan.  These equity requirements are also based on today's dollars, which are far more realistic the then numbers used during the housing bubble

Louisville Colorado Real Estate Market Update
