Market review and a few predictions
  

The real estate market in Boulder County was hot in 2014. The inventory of single family homes for sales in Boulder County is down 10.8% from 2013, with attached dwelling inventory down 13.5%. Demand outpaced supply again this year and the 30-year fixed interest rate decreased from 4.5% a year ago to 3.875% currently, a recipe for appreciation: the median price went up 3.9% for single family homes and 5.3% for attached dwellings.  

 

All signs are that 2015 will look a lot like 2014 - low inventory coupled with low interest rates resulting in a competitive buying environment and more appreciation. I'm predicting a very active first quarter, based on pent-up demand and low inventory. The first quarter is traditionally the best time for sellers to be on the market and 2015 should be no exception. If you or anyone you know is considering selling or buying, I'm happy to help. 

 

I hope you had a great 2014. Wishing you and your family a happy holiday season and prosperous New Year! As always, thank you for your business and friendship.
