Boulder Colorado Real Estate Blog

We’re into the fourth year of a relatively stable real estate market across the Boulder Valley, Northern Colorado, and the Metro Denver area. Available inventory of homes continues to be an issue, with the current Absorption Rate for single family homes through February/2015 in Boulder County being 134 days. That number will decrease as the area real estate market shifts into a higher gear with the advent of spring and summer. The overall Absorption Rate for 2014 for single family homes in Boulder County was 76 days.

Boulder County sales activity is ahead of last year through February. There have been 328 single family homes sold thus far this year compared to 300 last year; 145 attached units sold this year compared to 124 attached

When picturing your dream home perhaps you see an open floor plan, master suite, granite countertops, but you might be overlooking the most important quality - investment. Not since the 90s have we seen such a high demand for real estate. Demand is high, inventory is low, basic supply and demand means prices will continue to increase. 

The low supply/high demand trend looks like it's at the beginning of a long climb. Lou Barnes, a mortgage lender with Premier Group in Boulder was recently quoted in the Daily Camera, "We're within sight of the last single-family detached (home) in Boulder County."

With spring on the horizon it’s a great time to start cleaning out the corners, closets and cabinets. It’s been 10 years since we last moved. We’ve add three more people to our family and with all their stuff, I’m ready to move with two suitcases and leave it all behind. Before I take such drastic measures, I’m setting some rules.

Inspired by 40 Bags in 40 Days, join me for a three part series as I chronicle the declutter of my family, Team Jones. First, I’ve establish The Rules. I’ve broken them down into three sections: Reframing Clutter, Organizing, Hard Limits, Survival Tools.

Somehow I got myself into this place, so first I took a look on the inside to see where I could de-clutter my habits.

Boulder County’s inventory is low, making it a seller’s market. With fewer homes for sale, sellers are in the best position to negotiate not only the price of their home, but the terms of their contract making it a great time to sell. Even if you are looking to relocate later in the year, now may be the perfect time to put your home on the market. Here are a few scenarios to help you decide.
