'Tis the season for hanging off the roof to add a little holiday sparkle to the long winter nights. Before you pull a Clark Griswald, check out these holiday lighting tips.

Color, multi-color and white lights can all have a place in your winter wonderland scene. White or multi-colored lights are the best choice for hanging on your home.

Koelbel Development has been a family owned business for two generations and one of Colorado’s top developers since 1952. Walter Koelbel started by investing in properties along the I-25 corridor anticipating the revolutionary change widespread automobile usage and highways would have on suburban expansion. These investments placed Koelbel and Company solidly at the forefront of new real estate developments in the Denver metro area. 

Koelbel has always kept in mind the natural beauty Colorado offers. Pinehurst Country Club and Pinehurst Estates was the first master-planned residential golf course community along Colorado's Front Range with the natural beauty of the golf course as the neighborhood's center.  That laid the groundwork for Koelbel's

Interest rates are down and the value of homes in Boulder are steadily rising. If you are looking to make a change, now is a great time to buy or sell. Times have changed, the holiday season is no longer the real estate dead zone. Here is why.

1. The School Year Doesn’t Rule Everyone

With more young professionals entering the market and a hefty number of baby boomers buying and selling, there are plenty of homebuyers who are not buying and selling around school schedules. 

2.  Motivated Sellers

Selling a home over the holidays isn’t always a choice. A seller motivated by a status change, job transfer or financial reasons means you could get a bigger bang for your buck. Since first time home buyers won’t need to sell a home first, they are

Hello, my name is Barb Passalacqua, and I am thrilled to join the team at BoulderHomeSource. Growing up in family of developers my infatuation with real estate began at an early age. My husband and I have bought and sold many properties in Boulder County over the last 20 years, so becoming a Realtor just made sense.

For me, helping people is a pleasure and I am good at advocating for my clients whether they are buying or selling. One client in particular was very rewarding. They have a daughter with severe allergies related to household toxins. They needed help fast. I found them a nice home that had no allergens but did have all the features they wanted in a second home. It was wonderful to see everyone happy and healthy in their new Boulder home.

It seems kids are learning academic skills sooner and faster than ever before, but is that enough to keep up with a highly competitive global economy? The next generation won't enter a world of 9 to 5 jobs they will retire from in 40 years. They will have to carve their own path. To do that, they'll need confidence, adaptability, appreciation and ingenuity. We encourage creative thinking, but it is time to push past that into actual creating. Maker Boulder is helping kids do just that. Maker Boulder is a growing community that hosts events throughout Boulder County, encouraging kid makers to leave their Boulder homes and join together to make something.

 

Most recently Maker Boulder held the Cardboard Challenge at Horizon’s K-8. 150 Boulderites
