Market Stability in Boulder

A recent study by analysts at SmartAsset.com pegged the city of Boulder as the number 1 real estate market for growth and stability in the U.S. since 1990. Their research shows that over the past 25 years, home prices grew an average 4% a year in Boulder and are approaching price levels nearly quadruple that of 1990. During that time, home prices have never once seen a decline of more than 5% in Boulder - not even during the national foreclosure crisis. That stability means homeowners in Boulder have been spared the stress of depreciation, while reaping the benefits of price appreciation. Fort Collins (11) and Denver (18) also made the list. Read the full report.

Celebrating Seniors
Some of the best things about life in Boulder County are thanks to our seniors, who did a lot of the heavy lifting early on. Many Boulder Valley seniors want to grow older here, and they are better able to do that thanks to an outstanding local non-profit, Boulder County CareConnect. If you're seeking meaningful yet convenient volunteer opportunities, this is the place.
