Spring flowers at Home Depot

Today marks the first official day of Spring. Hurray, we can all officially dig out our gardening tools and start planting! My favorite part about spring, besides the sandals, is watching all the color come back into beautiful Colorado. During the fall and later parts of the winter, Colorado takes on a sepia tone where everything, although pretty, is a different shade of brown.

Ranging from the lush greens of the Valley’s fields, to the bright yellow sunflowers growing along the streets, to the expansive blue sky; spring in Boulder Valley is colored with life! If you haven’t already, it is time to start planning

Scott Carpenter Park Boulder ColoradoEven if you don’t have kids, Scott Carpenter Park & Pool is one of the coolest playgrounds and community parks in Boulder, Colorado.  This park sits off of 30th, just south of Arapahoe Road, and has a nice big parking lot with tons of shade and an RTD stop.  At first glance, you don’t really get the chance to see all the features of the park, so be sure to walk around and check out the skate park area and baseball fields before heading to the pool or playground.  

I recently went to Scott Carpenter Park on a warm day in March with my son and was amazed by the different kinds of people I saw enjoying themselves outside.  There were tons of kids playing on the spaced themed playground, adults doing yoga on the top of the hill, college kids eating their

Buying Real Estate 2013March 2013 is looking like its going to be a game of numbers for homeowners and about which buyer wants it more!   With the high demand on for sale homes in Boulder’s local market, potential buyers in March will be faced with a seriously competitive market.  In March it is expected that many buyers will try to beat the “rush” of spring by looking to contract early.  

Of course the overall lack of inventory is not going to make things easier for buyers, but the good news is that homeowners will finally see numbers swing back around into their court.  Although many of the homes that will be coming on to the market over the next year will increase in value, most of them will have still not reached the point of 2007’s values.
