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

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.

Gunbarrel Neighborhood in Colorado

Beautiful views, active lifestyle, great schools, fun restaurants, these are all the things to love about Boulder. Late night college parties, traffic, limited parking, and high home prices are often the cost to live in such a desirable location. You can have it all though. 

Only 6 miles northeast from downtown Boulder, Gunbarrel is a 10 minute drive away from downtown Pearl Street. Gunbarrel is so close, the business district is annexed to Boulder City.  It’s still within biking distance, but far enough away to enjoy a quiet evening on your deck overlooking acres of open space, farmland and even the green tees of Boulder Country Club.

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 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.
