Fall: A Great Time to Sell or Buy a Home in Boulder

Posted by Gabrielle Fuqua on Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 at 9:54am.

Interest rates are down and the value of homes in Boulder are steadily rising. If you are looking to make a change in to a new Boulder neighborhood, now is a great time to buy or sell. Times have changed, the holiday season is no longer the real estate dead zone. Here is why.

1. The School Year Doesn’t Rule Everyone

With more young professionals entering the market and a hefty number of baby boomers buying and selling, there are plenty of homebuyers who are not buying and selling around school schedules. 

2.  Motivated Sellers

Selling a home over the holidays isn’t always a choice. A seller motivated by a status change, job transfer or financial reasons means you could get a bigger bang for your buck. Since first time home buyers won’t need to sell a home first, they are in a great position to capitalize on a seller who wants to sell their home quickly. 

3. The Internet

The internet has offered an option for potential buyers to pre shop existing inventory without driving around in iffy weather. Homes listed on the snowiest days reap the benefit of possible buyers spending more time at home on the couch surfing the net. 

4. Inventory

Boulder real estate inventory is more limited in the fall. This can be an advantage for sellers. With less competition you’re less likely to have a buyer with many choices shopping for the lowest price.

5. End of Year Deadline

End of year deadlines can also work in your favor. Whether is a goal set to buy a home before the new year or proceeds from a home sale that need to be reinvested before the tax year ends, buyers are looking for homes 24/7.
