The New Year Approaches in Boulder County!


Hello Friend,
 


It's been an incredible year in Boulder County where I love guiding my clients in finding their dream homes. Whether I'm helping families move into a bigger place, or retired couples who are downsizing, having a beloved home to call your own is the reason I'm in this business. With the holiday season in full swing and the New Year approaching, I always like to reflect on the last 12 months, and 2019 has been an amazing year for my clients finding their dream homes.

Expert predictions on the 2020 housing market are everywhere. Below I share an article from Forbes with predictions regarding mortgage rates, Millennial impacts on the market, and more. I also share an article from Colorado Homes & Lifestyles Magazine with excellent questions to ask when you're shopping to replace your home's windows. And finally, The Denver Post has an article about the controversy over a potential measure on the 2020 ballot that would set a growth limit for communities across the Font Range.

What are your plans for 2020? Will you need to move to a new home, or perhaps sell your current one? It's never too early to start planning for the inevitably busy spring season. I'm happy to help you figure out your options and decipher the current housing market. I know it's the busy holiday season, but I'm always available for you! Reply to this email or give me a buzz—I'm here to help!

Happy Holidays

The Single Family Home market in Boulder County looks to be ending 2019 with both the median and average sales prices showing only slight appreciation compared to November 2018. The number of active listings and "days to sale" are both higher today than this time last year signaling a slow down in single family home sales. This is despite the 30 year mortgage rate being significantly lower today as compared to one year ago. 

The Attached Dwelling market shows no appreciation in the median sales price November 2018 to November 2019; the "days to sale" and the months of inventory are both higher, and signal a slowing market for condos and townhomes in the County. Click here to see November's Top 10 Vital Statistics.
