Sales activity in years 2006 through 2009 were on a downward spiral. The market stabilized in 2009 through 2011, then began an upward shift in 2012. This past year we saw market activity approach 2007 in Boulder County for single family home sales (3,491 vs. 3,570) and attached unit sales (1,329 vs. 1,426).  The market is still about 17% behind 2005 sales numbers, but headed in the right direction.
