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.

Below is an overview of sales activity for the past two years for single family homes in the various Boulder Valley areas, courtesy of IRES – the Northern Colorado MLS.

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.

For most people, the deciding factor when they select a canine pal to become a member of their family is the feeling that a specific animal will not only fit into their life, but will complete it. For me, I just knew when I looked to the eyes of my special little puppy dog that she was mine and my heart told me I could not walk away.  Having said that, I chose the dogs below from the Longmont Humane Society to feature in this month’s pet blog because their sweet little faces spoke to me.  And, if I could give these dogs a voice here is what I imagine they would say.

Weeks have now passed since the Colorado Flood of 2013 and even though many people have begun to put the pieces back together, there is still a huge need for help in the area. One area which is near and dear to most Coloradans hearts are our four legged pals and pets. Since the first reports of evacuations, the Longmont Humane Society, which is one of the Front Range's largest facilities, has taken in over 230 animals which were stranded or otherwise displaced by the rushing waters. With so many additional animals in the facility, the Longmont Humane Society is now looking to the public to help fill the need of the community.

The majority of the animals that are being sheltered at the Longmont Humane Society because of the floods are in a unique

Working in the Real Estate industry we need to categorize our listings as either in the flood zone, minimal risk, high risk, etc. When check-marking the appropriate box I never imagined that I would see what the high risk flood could really encompass.


September is always an amazing time for me. The weather is generally amazing as is the excitement in the air for all the holidays to come. Especially September 12th, my birthday - I love my birthday. Unfortunately, over the course of the last decade it has change. 9/11 happened, now the "100 year flood", or some say the "1,000 year flood". Evidently we had three extremely moist and warm weather systems from different directions come together and basically get trapped against the mountains, a very, very
