Boulder Real Estate   Here’s a question in keeping with the arrival of spring and the birth of a new baseball season. What’s the most expensive baseball card ever sold? Is it the Tulowitzki rookie card? Not! You’d have to go back over a hundred years for the card that most expensive baseball cardsold in 2007 at auction for $2.8 million to Ken Kendrick, owner of the Arizona Diamondbacks. It’s the Honus Wagner T206 card produced by the American Tobacco Company between 1909 and 1911.    With that bit of baseball trivia, let’s segue from baseball to real estate and the concept of scarcity. What made the Honus Wagner card so valuable was the fact there were so few cards distributed – only forty to the public. What has made home values increase over the course of the past few years across…

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." Barnes is referring to the fact that most of Boulder's subdivisions have been built out and the county is considering more building restrictions for the

I ran across an article in Realtor.net magazine which I think may be helpful to you when you are thinking of selling your home and you are wondering if the money you spend on fix up is worth it. Of course there are may factors which go into making this kind of a decision.

How much did I pay for my home? What is my home worth as an average in the neighborhood--am I at the high or medium range when compared with the other homes which are for sale or have recently sold? I can help you determine that with a professional opinion called a competitive market analysis.

How much equity do I have in my home measured by the value above the financing or other obligations owed when you get that check at the closing table? Is my home an income property and will I

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.

Scenario 1: You’re moving out of Boulder County

Even if your move is planned for later in the year, putting your house on the market now may be the perfect move. Selling early in the year means less competition later from spring sellers. This makes it very likely your home will sell before you move, alleviating the worry of two mortgages.

Scenario 2: We

An article authored by Steve Goldstein and re-printed in part for you by Warren Williams.

According to WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Colorado saw the fastest rate of house-price growth last year  in the nation, according to CoreLogic data released Tuesday.

CoreLogic reported home-price growth in December that slipped 0.1% on the month, to take the year-on-year move to 5%. CoreLogic was measuring single-family homes, including distressed properties like foreclosures and short sales.

At 8.4%, Colorado saw the strongest growth, followed closely by Texas at 7.8% and New York at 7.6%.

This report by CoreLogic seems to match the data which I posted last month for CO at around 9% through November of 2014.

With housing values on the increase and

The Fourth of July is coming up fast, have you made your plans? We've gathered a list of our favorites to give you some ideas for the big day. 

Why not start the day off at the Boulder Reservoir for their Star Spangled Splash? This day in the sun begins at 8am with a 5k, followed by a volleyball tournament at 10am. Grab some food from one of the food trucks that will be hanging out in the sand, and dance the afternoon away to the live DJ. This party ends at 6pm, and does not include fireworks, but is a great way to get a head start on celebrating.

Once you have your fun in the sun it's about time to settle in for a fireworks show. If you want to stay in Boulder, head on over to Folsom Field on the CU of Boulder

Created back in the 1970’s, disc golf shares many similarities with traditional golf. You start at a tee and your goal is to get your disc (your Frisbee) to the end of the course in as few throws as possible. At the end of the course will be the pole hole, an elevated metal basket that you aim your disc at. Unlike traditional golf, disc golf offers free courses, making it readily available to anyone who is interested. Some of the courses may offer challenges, such as water or trees, but with disc golf you will not need a golf cart to make your way through the course. Sound like a great idea for your next Saturday? We have gathered a list of the courses in and around Boulder for you to explore.
