Summer is Winding Down in Boulder County!


Hello Friend,
 

Summer is always such a busy time, with so many festivals and events. There's never an end to fun things to do in Boulder County! As summer starts to wind down, with kids going back to school, and pool season coming to an end... we're so close to enjoying the cool relief of fall. I hope you've made lots of great summer memories in 2019 with your friends and family. I've had a wonderful summer and can't wait for a beautiful fall that's coming up fast!

In a tight "sellers-market," purchasing with cash has been a way to set yourself apart in the home buying sphere. Below we share an article from USA Today explaining how a more buyer-friendly market means cash is no longer king. We also bring you the second installment of the Colorado Homes & Lifestyles Magazine series on choosing the best contractor for your job. Our last article from MarketWatch explains why Boulder has been ranked the No.1 most stable housing market in the country for the 5th year in a row!

Buying a new home is a major investment, and takes a lot of consideration. Let me help you work through all the details, and figure out what's best for your needs now, and in the future. Let's talk! Drop me a line, I'm always excited to discuss your options!

Until next month,
Clove

Our market is definitely changing. One of the better statistical indicators is the “Percentage of Homes Under Contract" compared to past years. We are currently hovering around 38% for single family homes in Boulder County that are “Under Contract", which is still strong, but is borderline as to whether homes will show price appreciation or not. Be sure to look at the local statistics link to gain further insight (hint: notice the inventory change in “Total Active Listings" from this time last year - up 20.6% for Single Family and up 38% for Attached Dwellings!). Click here to see July's Top 10 Vital Statistics.
