Fall Colors are Peeping in Boulder County!


Hello Friend,
 


Fall is just a few short days away, and we're enjoying the cooler weather and the glimmer of gold on the aspen trees. Now is the season to get yard work done and winterize your outdoor plants in preparation for winter. But my favorite part of fall is enjoying drinks and s'mores in the cool evenings around a bonfire with family and friends. Be sure to follow all rules around bonfires this time of year. What's your favorite part of fall in Boulder County?

After some stutters in June, the national housing market is looking up. We share an article from MarketWatch on lower mortgage rates giving a slight boost to home prices in 2020. If you love supporting Colorado companies, our second article from 5280 is for you! Learn about 6 local furniture companies that are providing stylish home decor. And our last article is about the new Open Space Master Plan that was unanimously passed by the Boulder Council to manage the 46,000 acres surrounding the city.

Peak season is slowing down, but that doesn't mean it's a bad time to buy (or sell)! Mortgage rates are low, and that means it's a great time to jump into the market. Whether you're looking to sell or buy, I'm always available to discuss the current market. Shoot me an email, or give me a call, I look forward to hearing from you!

Happy Fall

With 8 months behind us in 2019, the real estate market is still rebalancing itself, interest rates are nearly 1% lower from this time last year, and buyers are benefiting. Single Family home sales in the County saw a slight decline in both average and median sale prices to $758,210 and $600,000 respectively, and a healthy 23% growth in the number of homes available for sale. Attached dwellings saw a more significant change largely due to the increased production of multifamily homes county-wide.

All indicators on this chart show a stronger buyer's market; median and average sale prices are down to $380,000 and $444,957 respectively. Check out the 30 second videos to the right, or the Top 10 Vital Stats link for the detailed breakdown. It is a great time to be a buyer in Boulder County! Click here to see August's Top 10 Vital Statistics.
