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.

Finally, we’re out of the deep freeze. That’s what it felt like around the Boulder Valley as January gave way to February. Unfortunately, Punxsutawney Phil, the Seer of Sears, the Prognosticator of Prognostications, predicted six more weeks of winter when he saw his shadow on February 2nd. I’m betting on (hoping for) an early spring.

            The holidays are a distant memory and real estate buyers and sellers focus now turns to what they do best - buying and selling. The inventory of available properties will begin to grow as the weather improves, but will remain at a low level as demand continues to exceed supply.  For Boulder County, active single family home listings stood at 725 at the end of January/2014. At the end of January/2013 there

Since the peak year of 2005, the Boulder Valley real estate market has been climbing a steep hill back to respectability. It has been a slow process. 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.

Our Boulder RE/MAX Alliance office recently heard from one of the area’s most highly sought after professional photographers, Eldeen Annette. Eldeen’s specialties are celebrity photography and portraiture. After our recent conversation regarding her services, I have to say I am very impressed by the quality product she is able to produce, as well as her artistic eye. It was very refreshing to hear her point of view on how much a good professional and modern portrait is really worth to just about any kind of business professional. 

The key to her success is she provides everything a professional celebrity photographer would to someone like Kim Kardashian to everyday business owners, families and high school seniors. She specializes in these areas

Now that the cold weather has moved into the Boulder area, you are probably looking for something fun to do indoors, right? Well, I am here to remind you about the many bowling opportunities in the area. Although there is actually only one hometown bowling alley in the City of Boulder, which happens to be on the CU campus, there are several other places to bowl nearby, some of which go well beyond your traditional old school alleys. So, the next time you want something to do with your kids, friends, grandparents or for date night, consider knocking down some pins at one of the Front Range's bowling alleys.

Life is a composite of good times and not so good times, highs and lows interspersed with a multitude of middles. As we trek toward the end of another year this is an opportune time to reflect back on the events and circumstances that led us down the path to where we find ourselves today.

From a real estate perspective, Boulder County and the Boulder Valley area have experienced relatively good times in 2013.

Home mortgage interest rates vacillated between 3.34% (January) and 4.58% (August) for the traditional thirty-year fixed rate loan. Not a dramatic shift, but a 1% rate differential on a $615,000 home (median price in Boulder) with an 80% loan-to-value ($492,000 mortgage) is approximately $280.00 per month in additional principle and interest.
