Autumn Has Arrived in Boulder County!


Hello Friend,
 


It's finally feeling like autumn with nippy nights and cool days, making it the perfect time to take hikes and enjoy the outdoors! I love the easy stroll of the Wonderland Lake Loop Trail or the Flatirons Vista, and the views and colors are spectacular this time of year. To really get the blood pumping a hike up the Rattlesnake Gulch is always stunning. What's your favorite hike in Boulder County?

Did you see what happened with mortgage rates last month? Check out the article below from Bankrate about third-quarter housing and mortgage trends. Also below, an article from Colorado Homes & Lifestyles Magazine about what it's like to live in your house during a remodel. And finally, the Denver Post explains how a new FHA rule change will help the condo market in Boulder County!

Don't forget to vote on November 5th! To learn more about the elections in Boulder County click here.

Do you have questions about our housing market, maybe about what mortgage rates mean for your plans to buy or sell your home? I have all the latest stats and would love to discuss what they mean for your unique situation. Reply to this email, or just give me a call.

See you around town

Boulder County is still rocking it nationally, and remains the #1 place for real estate investment in terms of investment growth and stability according to the finance technology company Smart Assets. Also, the Federal Housing and Finance Agency (FHFA) ranks Colorado 21st in the nation for housing price appreciation year-to-date with 5.63% statewide. 

Looking locally at year-over-year 3Q 2018 through 3Q 2019, County-wide unit inventory and "days on the market" for both single-family and multi-family housing are up (normally indicating a slow down). Interestingly though, the number of units sold in both housing types is also up 4% year over year, illustrating a stable market. Housing is taking longer to sell, but sales volume is solid. With mortgage rates hovering below 4% and plenty of inventory in the County, it is a great time to be a Boulder County buyer!

Recap and Forecast: Third-quarter Housing, Mortgage Trends

With the third-quarter of 2019 closed, Bankrate takes a look at the trends from the last three months in this article. Comparing the housing market to last year, so far in 2019 sales are up 2.6%. Mortgage rates continue to fluctuate and inventory remains lower than demand in some areas.

Great Remodeling Choices 101:
How to Weather Living in a Construction Zone

Colorado Homes & Lifestyles Magazine's third article in their four-part series on remodeling discusses the realities of living in a construction zone. How to keep yourself sane while your home is turned upside-down and what action items you can do to keep it livable. 


FHA Rule Change Regarding Condo Loans Could Allow More Buyers to Break Into Boulder County Market

The Federal Housing Administration is making it easier for first-time condo buyers, often with less than perfect credit, to get mortgages. In this article from The Denver Post they explain the new rule that went into effect October 15th to allow broader access to FHA financing. This will help both buyers and sellers of condos by opening the housing market to more people.
