A few quick thoughts on the market:

The first half of the year is traditionally the most active time in our market. That trend has continued this year, but the market is more active than usual. We are experiencing the "Perfect Storm" to make Buyers get off the fence.  Rental rates are up 6.7% and interest rates are down 19% over this time last year.  As a result, the number of sales of single family homes is up 21% in Boulder County, with the median sale price up 6%.  Attached dwelling sales are up 14% in Boulder County, with the median sales price up 12%. Well priced properties are going under contract quickly and the inventory is down substantially over last year.  Clearly, it's a good time for Sellers to be on the market. For Buyers, with interest rates at historic lows, it's a great time to purchase a home or make an investment. Call me anytime to discuss how to make the current market work for you.

Congratulations RE/MAX of Boulder
 

For once again winning the #1 Real Estate Group in the Boulder Weekly's "BEST OF BOULDER COUNTY!"

 

Here's what they say: 

Real estate in Boulder County is a funny thing. Not funny ha-ha, but funny strange. We have the Boulder bubble, in which there are rich people, renters and not-rich people who just happened to buy their property like 40 years ago, when it was more affordable. Then, outside of the bubble, there is that layer of open space, and then there are the communities where the rest of us can afford to live, like the L-towns. Luckily, our home values haven't plummeted as much as in a lot of other markets in the country. When it comes time to dealing with the county's unique real estate dynamics, for the third year in a row, Re/Max of Boulder has been crowned king. And rightfully so. In 2010, RE/MAX of Boulder produced more than twice the number of listings and sales for residential and attached dwellings in Boulder and Broomfield counties than its closest competitors.
