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.
