Use Curb Appeal to Your Advantage

Selling a home can be a lengthy process, but increasing home value of your Boulder area property and lessening the selling period may be easier than you think. Curb appeal plays a large role. The better the curb appeal, the higher the selling price, and less time the house spends on the market.

Freshen Up

Washing the front of your home is a quick and easy way to improve curb appeal. Warm, soapy water and a soft bristled brush can remove dirt and mildew from your home. This simple step can remove years of dust, giving your home a fresh face that will appeal to potential buyers. The following listing, 1310 Armstrong, Longmont, CO in the Shadow Grass neighborhood, is an excellent example of how a “fresh face” can

It's been three years since Boulder and much of Colorado suffered from what meteorologists call a thousand-year flood. While most have recovered, many never returned to their homes. It was a great chance to see Colorado pull together to help each other. 

Here are some before and after of photos from our neighborhood in north Boulder. Click here to see a video of scenes from the flood.

An astounding 17.15 inches of rain - the equivalent of almost one year's worth of rain - fell on Boulder over an eight-day period in September.  It was an intense, emotional and historical eight days.  What we remember most from this unforgiving wrath Mother Nature played on us was the outpouring of support shown to one another by the people and

Since the peak year of 2005, the Boulder Valley real estate market has been climbing a steep hill back to respectability. It has been a slow process. Sales activity in years 2006 through 2009 were on a downward spiral. The market stabilized in 2009 through 2011, then began an upward shift in 2012. This past year we saw market activity approach 2007 in Boulder County for single family home sales (3,491 vs. 3,570) and attached unit sales (1,329 vs. 1,426).  The market is still about 17% behind 2005 sales numbers, but headed in the right direction.

Below is an overview of sales activity for the past two years for single family homes in the various Boulder Valley areas, courtesy of IRES – the Northern Colorado MLS.

Boulder Valley Economic Snapshot 

Boulder Region Housing News April 2013

The decline in inventory was driven by sales activity. When comparing 2012 to 2011, single family home sales were up 24.44% (3258 vs. 2618) for Boulder County. Attached unit sales were up 20.80% (1144 vs. 947) for the same time periods. Collectively, those two market segments were up 23.47%.

Here is the latest economic update from our good friend Dan Johnson with RE/MAX Alliance in Louisville, CO.  Dan gives some insight into last year and a glimmer of hope for the year ahead.

 

January/2012

 

That light at the end of the tunnel may not be another train coming this way. For the Boulder County real estate market that light may be the end to the darkness the area real estate market has experienced since the end of 2005.

For the past three years sales activity has been approximately the same. In 2009 there were 3,665 single family/attached unit sales across Boulder County. In 2010 that number was 3,660 and in 2011 the number was 3,539.

When comparing 2010 to 2011, here are some

Here comes the snow wooohoo we need some, but it also means it is time to sneak in a winter ride before the snow hits. 

One of the best winter rides is Halls Ranch in Lyons.  Halls actually has two routes one from Apple Valley road and the other from the South Facing (better for winter) Route 7 South St Vrain Rd.  The path from the parking lot will lead you to Bitterbrush trail where you will begin to climb through some technical single track you will crest the hill at about 1.5 miles where you will drop down into a valley.  The trail becomes smoother at this point, but you will continue to climb until hook up with the Nelson loop, which can be ridden either way.  The loop is 2.3 miles and is a good way to add some extra mileage if you want.

 backrange_400Richard Wobbekind, one of my favorite economists, who is with the Colorado Leeds School of business, is predicting that Colorado will have slow steady growth in 2012.  We are not going to see robust growth, but we are going to see growth.  The construction industry which has seen a decline in employment over the last four years is poised to add 2,900 jobs next year.

Wobbekind does caution in the article in the Daily Camera, that if something drastic happens in Europe that throws our stock market into a tail spin all bets are off and we could have rough roads ahead. 

The current numbers and job growth are running parallel to what occurred during the 2001 downturn according to Wobbekind.  If we continue to follow the same growth path we should see
