1. Living In The Shadow Of The Flatirons

Living with a breathtaking view of the Flatirons is so, ugh. Imagine you’re on vacation and you’re comparing views and you’re thinking “Meh, I’ve seen better.” That’s no way to live! If you hate living in a postcard, you’ll hate Boulder, CO.

2. Bicycles Everywhere

If you’ve ever driven around Boulder you know what I mean. Cyclists rule the road. They are everywhere: kids, men in suits, athletes, and cruiser riders in costumes. There are mountain bikes, road bikes, recumbent bikes, elliptical bikes,

Recently the Boulder Daily Camera published an article entitled, "Price of Average House Tops $1M." With home values soaring, it's easy to read the headline and jump to some not so accurate conclusions.

For Real Estate take the total of all homes sold in a month and divide by the total homes sold. This number is greatly affected month-to-month by the number of sales and by the sale of high-end listings.

Mid-Level Housing

"Average" is not mid-level housing. Generally, mid-level housing in Boulder refers to homes between 1000-2999 square feet. That's not to say there aren't luxury

Money Does Grow On Trees
