Many different industries across the Colorado, including the real estate sector, are in the beginning stages of what people are now calling a “come-back”.  The come-back initialized in February when increases in home sales and decreases in foreclosures could be seen across Colorado especially in the Boulder/Denver area.  Homes that are priced for less than $500 thousand have been flying off the market in record time which many are attributing to low volumes of inventory, even lower interest rates, an improved local job market, recent hikes in rent, and an overall increase in buyer's demand.

Although these changes can be seen across the board for this particular price point the overall inventory of homes for sale is significantly lower then anticipated.

Boulder, Colorado was selected as one of the top 20 markets over the next 20 years

(Jasper just above Boulder taking in the view)

Business Insider just announced Boulder shows indications of being poised to be one of the top markets for the next 20 years 'Where Will Americans Be Living In 20 Years?'

 

Dr. Stan Humphries states in his article at http://www.businessinsider.com/people-still-want-to-buy-homes-but-theyll-have-to-move-to-smaller-cities-to-afford-them-2012-6 that his  "best guess is that the biggest winners in the housing market two decades from now are going to be small- to mid-sized cities, some close to larger metros and others more distant."  This fits Boulder perfectly with it's location next to outdoor activities, a first class

From our Good Friend Dan Johnson at RE/MAX Alliance in Louisville:

Boulder Economic Snapshot

A look at the current real estate market; provided by

RE/ MAX ALLIANCE

 

August/2012

 

            As late summer melds into early fall the Boulder Valley real estate market continues to remain strong both in the resale sector and new home construction. For the first time in several years we’re seeing a few new homes being built in the higher price ranges. These are all presales as lenders and builders are still wary of building spec inventory in a price range approaching and exceeding seven digits.

            Through July/2012 Boulder County single family sales are UP 24.71% when compared to through July/2011 (1,953 homes vs. 1,566 homes).
