We’re into the fourth year of a relatively stable real estate market across the Boulder Valley, Northern Colorado, and the Metro Denver area. Available inventory of homes continues to be an issue, with the current Absorption Rate for single family homes through February/2015 in Boulder County being 134 days. That number will decrease as the area real estate market shifts into a higher gear with the advent of spring and summer. The overall Absorption Rate for 2014 for single family homes in Boulder County was 76 days.

Boulder County sales activity is ahead of last year through February. There have been 328 single family homes sold thus far this year compared to 300 last year; 145 attached units sold this year compared to 124 attached

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.

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.

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.

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
