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

The YMCA is known as the foundation in many communities across the United States, especially if you have children. In Colorado this could not be more true, specifically in the area of Boulder County which is known for its family friendly lifestyle and outstanding community resources. Being a YMCA kid myself, I know the value of their after school programs as well as their swimming and sports programs. I treasure the experiences I had growing up there. In addition to these resources provided for children, they offer valuable adult services as well, including classes, workshops, fitness programs and more. Without the help of countless volunteers and supporters, the YMCA could not offer the plethora of programs they do. As the largest nonprofit in the United

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.

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.
