Summer Real Estate News
The last days of summer are here and we hope you all have enjoyed warm weather, time with friends and family, barbecues and some vacation time. We took a family trip to the Ozarks with a quick stop to see Dorothy and crew in Kansas (and after three nights of Dead & Co. shows).

The scorching weather across the country has kept a lot of us in air conditioning, hanging by the pool and participating in activities in the morning and night. Whatever you have been doing this summer, the real estate market remains just as hot in the Boulder area. Lower inventory and a continued sellers market has kept the prices pretty much commensurate with last year. High rates have been fought off by high employment and despite what the rest of the US markets are doing, houses are still moving.

If you are looking to sell, now it is more important than ever to have a seasoned professional price, stage and market your home. Equally, on the buy-side, it is important to have a knowledgeable professional help negotiate and win you the contract. Please reach out if you are needing any advise or would like us to set up a listing presentation, buyer checklist, or just chat about you real estate goals. 

Even though the summer days are waning, there is plenty of time to take advantage of the many activities in the area. Below is a listing of some great activities to do in Boulder.  We hope to see you all very soon!
Boulder County Metrics:
Boulder (and Colorado) real estate still remains hot and now is a great time to take advantage of market variables that are in your favor. Taking a look at this month's stats, you can see that Months Supply is up to 2.8 and almost a full month higher than last year at this time. That is the closest to a balanced market we have seen in years (3 months signals a balanced market).

Average Sales price is holding pretty flat at 3.1% down and Median is down 11.1% respectively. Days on Market is still up and almost twice as long as last year.

SOLD: 940 Oleander St. Castle Rock

These were fantastic relocation clients who initially started looking in the Broomfield area, but were so blown away by our level of service, they asked us to represent them in Castle Rock. It was such a thrill to work with this young couple who not only moved from Boise, but also had their second child days within closing (talk about life changes--I think they even purchased a new car to cover all of life's stressful events)! We are so happy for them and this amazing new build in the Meadows. If you are not familiar with the Castle Rock, it is the next Boulder in the South!
We are proud of our boutique brokerage and the ability to win contracts and provide exceptional service in this unbelievably competitive market.
