July: Market Insight, Deals & Events

Featured Listing: Gold Lake Mountain Resort


Listed by Tom Kahn & Jay Hebb RE/MAX Alliance on Walnut

Gold Lake Ranch holds many fond memories for Colorado residents. I hear so many stories from those who attended summer camp there as a child or took their vows at Inspiration Point right in front of one of Boulder County's largest natural lakes. Recently, Gold Lake Ranch closed for business and is on the market for $11.5 million.

Folk lore says that Chief Niwot once called Gold Lake the "Happiest Hunting Ground on Earth," and it truly is a little piece of heaven. Gold Lake once served as a summer retreat for the Arapahoe Tribe. Later, it became a hot spot for gold miners who searched its refreshing mountain waters for gold at the bottom of the lake. Since then it has become a favorite spot to enjoy views of the Continental Divide. Only 25 miles from Boulder, this mountain property boasts over 15 cabins across 91 acres, along with the historic lodge.

Search listings here, and don't hesitate to contact me to receive additional information about Gold Lake or other mountain properties that can help you beat the summer heat.

June Market Insight Boulder County

June was another hot month for Boulder County Real Estate. A mere 65 new residential listings became available in June with an average Days on Market time of just 12 days, half the time of June 2014. Sale prices of attached and detached single family dwellings increased slightly more than 12% overall from last years averages. Sales prices of attached and detached dwellings hovered around the average of $619,569 and a total of 239 units sold and closed during June 2015.
 
Smart Homes: The Future is Now
 
Remember when the most advanced homes had intercom systems with fancy doorbell chimes? Our neighbor's home had one and it was the closest thing to StarTrek I'd ever seen. I loved it.
 
Fast forward to 2015 and with the touch of a button or even just a single spoken word you can unlock your home, set the perfect lighting, temperature, music and even aroma for your mood. You can check your security cameras from any mobile device and even reward your pets with a treat when you're not home. Here's a breakdown of some currently available smart home technology.

Hug Command Controls
These act as a Tower of Babel, translating all the different communication platforms like bluetooth, Z-Wave, ZigBee, allowing you to control everything with one master app.
 
Voice-Activated Assistant
Move over Siri, Jarvis is in town! Ivee Sleep manages connected devices, retrieves online info, sets reminders and does much more all via voice control.
 
Backsplash Display Screen
I want. Turn your kitchen into the bridge of the Enterprise with a Backsplash Display Screen. Look up recipes, video chat, watch your favorite shows or just set it to an amazing photo to add depth and interest to an otherwise less interesting space.
 
Pets
Petcube streams video to a table or smart phone or go a step further and make it two way with PetChatz and your pets will be able to see you too. It even doles out treats!
 
Deals of the Month
 
Yoga Pod is the child of Gerry and Nicole's dream to open a studio where "students could gather in a sanctuary of peace, to rejuvenate their body, refresh their mind, and replenish their spirit. Friends of RE/MAX Alliance are being offered a free class, one per student, with no expiration date. Stop by Yoga Pod and try it out today.
 

Pets of the Month: Falafel and Po
 
Falafel is a cute name for a cute dog! This two year old terrier mix is a funny little fellow with a spring in his step. Let him step right into your heart. Go to www.boulderhumane.org to find out more about adopting Falafel.

 
Po is a 5 year old domestic shorthaired. His foster family says he's a large lap cat who loves to purr. Did you know many white cats with blue eyes are deaf? It's not just a wives tale. 65-85% of white cats with two blue eyes are deaf. Don't worry, you may never even notice. Their sensitive whiskers still alert them of noise. If you'd like to meet Po, go to www.longmonthumane.org to find out more.
