Thanksgiving Wishes for You and Your Family

As one of my favorite Holidays approaches, it's with warmth that I wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving. Autumn is an awesome time to cozy up around the fireplace or a family dinner table, but it’s also a great time to buy a home or investment property.  Our local buyer pool has definitely shrunk since springtime, so this might be the best time for you to get out there and see what's on the market - you may be pleasantly surprised!

Jan-Oct 2017 stats show that prices for homes in Boulder County homes are still rising, up a little over 5% compared to last year. Inventory is also up almost 7% which means there’s more to chose from today than earlier in the year. This is a good time be out house-hunting since there’s more to chose from plus less competition. 

Another great Buzz article this month calls out one of the best promotions Boulder County could ask for… it lists the 25 Happiest Places to Live in America. Can you guess what place Boulder got? Read below to find out!

As always, I'm here and ready to counsel you on your real estate contemplations. I thank you so much for your continued business and referrals. It is because of you that I get to have a job that I love. 


The Fall Stats Trend Continues...
Before we transition into Winter, let's compare the stats from the end of this October to 2016 conditions. Both single family homes and attached dwellings continue to trend slightly higher than last year. The median price of a single family home in Boulder County is $560,000, up 5.1% from last year. Condos and townhomes are selling for a median price of $360,000, up 3.7%. CLICK HERE to read the October Stats. 

Why is Fall the Best Time to Buy a Home on a Budget?

Because "in the Fall, the types of homes that sell are smaller for people without kids. So they tend to be less expensive." This article in goes on to say that people with families often want to move before the school year starts, so there's less competition this time of year which is great news for those of you who became frustrated with frequently being outbid earlier this year. Therefore, consider purchasing a home now as the buying atmosphere is definitely more relaxed. 

Who are the Happiest People in America?
The question: "Who are the happiest Americans?" was posed by writer George Stone in his recent article in National Geographic.  His conclusion probably won't surprise you, especially if you live in Boulder County. The #1 city in America is Boulder, Colorado. "In the cities where the locals smile and laugh more often, socialize several hours a day, have access to green spaces, and feel that they are making purposeful progress toward achieving life goals" people are the happiest. He goes on to explain that, "For our index, it tracked factors that are statistically associated with doing well and feeling well; these include feeling secure, taking vacations, and having enough money to cover basic needs." I have to say I agree with him, and feel happy and grateful to live here. How about you? 

A Centerpiece for Thanksgiving and Beyond
Getting ready for Turkey Day is a lot of work, and as much as I enjoy the festive decorations, I love the idea of something I can use for more than one holiday. Houzz has the solution for us this year with this idea: a centerpiece that you can use for Thanksgiving, and then modify for the upcoming winter holidays as well. I'd love it if you'd snap a photo and send it to me if you end up trying it out! Happy Thanksgiving!
