The October 2017 The Single-Family Homes (SFH) market displayed some nice improvement with units of SFH increasing by 18.4% when compared to Oct. 2016.  The Median Sales also showed a big jump over last year with an increase of 11% to $545K.  October was a positive break from the trend of what we saw the last few months. 

The only real drop we saw compared to October 2016 is the list price to sale price ratio. It dropped by .9% to 98.5%.  This was not a complete surprise based on the insight we were getting from office discussions.  It appears Buyers are becoming more price sensitive and it is no longer a market where you can shoot for the stars.  Sellers need to be very cognizant of pricing correctly or they could end up with a stale listing that

Azra Bilgin, CO-founder of ReloCares, is heartfelt and humorous describing her firsthand experience of moving to Boulder, CO from Turkey.


At 24 years old, I received a scholarship for graduate school that would fulfill a dream I had since I was 11 years old.  I was moving to the US. Having attended an American school in Turkey from grade 6 to 12, I was confident in my decision, perhaps more so than my parents who thought I was too young to live alone on the other side of the Atlantic. Now having two kids of my own, I understand why.
