Rich's Boulder Valley Real Estate Report
Market Update
As I'm sure you've heard, the market is challenging with low inventory and high buyer demand. I continue to take a measured and logical approach to the market that ensures my clients are making good decisions. I've seen some costly errors made by inexperienced agents and sellers who are representing themselves. More than ever, it's important to have an experienced agent on your side. Please call me any time or pass my name along to friends and family. I'm glad to help.  Best, Rich

Boulder Named Best College Town in US
Two Colorado towns are among the 50 Best College Towns nationwide: Boulder claimed the No. 1 spot and Fort Collins was named No. 14 by Best College Reviews.
And when it comes to college towns, the competition for "best" is among the toughest there is. Factors considered by the reviewers are:
  • Livability
  • Student-to-resident ratio
  • Cultural offerings
  • School presence
  • Large employers
Boulder's mix of rich student life and post graduation livability made it "an easy selection as our best college town in America," the report says. Read the article.
