You're ready to invest in a home. You're pre-qualified and have a nice downpayment, but your offer wasn't accepted on that dream house. This is more common in today's strong real estate market. All is not lost. A strong backup offer can turn the tides and make that house your home.

What is a Backup Offer?

Once a homeowner has accepted an offer, they can accept backup offers if they feel for any reason the deal may fall through. By asking the owner to accept your offer as a backup offer means you are in line to buy the property if the deal fizzles out. Bonus, there is no additional cost to place a backup offer.

Boulder Real Estate   Here’s a question in keeping with the arrival of spring and the birth of a new baseball season. What’s the most expensive baseball card ever sold? Is it the Tulowitzki rookie card? Not! You’d have to go back over a hundred years for the card that most expensive baseball cardsold in 2007 at auction for $2.8 million to Ken Kendrick, owner of the Arizona Diamondbacks. It’s the Honus Wagner T206 card produced by the American Tobacco Company between 1909 and 1911.    With that bit of baseball trivia, let’s segue from baseball to real estate and the concept of scarcity. What made the Honus Wagner card so valuable was the fact there were so few cards distributed – only forty to the public.

We’re into the fourth year of a relatively stable real estate market across the Boulder Valley, Northern Colorado, and the Metro Denver area.

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.

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.
