1863 Tansy Place, Boulder

Here we are going into the "busy season" of Spring & Summer with an anticipated increase in inventory and of successful transactions in the 2nd & 3rd quarters. Before the "busy-ness" of Spring/Summer overtakes us, I just received the 1st Quarter Sales Statistics of Boulder County and these are worth reviewing to see how exactly 2011 is shaping up in comparison to the 1st Quarter of 2010. Quantity of Homes Sold (1st Q 2011 vs. 2011) Most areas of Boulder County saw less sales overall, with the most significant drop-off in Boulder itself in both single family homes & condos/townhomes. A few increased number of sales occurred in Louisville single family homes and all types of properties on the Plains. Average Sold Price (1st Q 2011 vs. 2010) Sales Prices overall were relatively stable with increases in single family homes in Boulder, Lafayette, Superior, and the Plains. There were very nominal increases in condo/townhomes sales only in Longmont and Louisville.
Median Sold Price (1st Q 2011 vs. 2010)
The median pricing of 1st quarter sales for single family homes stayed fairly consistent, with increases only in Superior and the Plains. Condos/townhomes saw increases in median pricing in Broomfield, Louisville and Superior.
Average Days to Contract (1st Q 2011 vs. 2010) 1st quarter is typically a slow time of year, however there was a decrease in the days on market-to-contract for single family homes in Boulder, Erie and Longmont. Condos/Townhomes saw a notable decrease in days-to-contract in Boulder, Louisville and Superior.
We have been a bit sluggish to start the year so far, but new inventory is coming onto the market every day. With well-priced properties for sale in this "peak market" time of year, average days on market tend to decrease and the number of solds tend to increase. The real question remains "at what value will these sales occur?" Market value will always be determined by what qualified buyers can & will successfully pay for properties. The "market value" trends are what I will monitor on a daily basis this time of year...

After the last few years of full-time work as a Realtor in challenging economic conditions, I found myself repeating many tasks from client to client, but also being asked somewhat similar questions. I also come across numerous pieces of information & articles that capture why it is so special to live here in Boulder County. In an attempt to spread some news/insight/gossip and decipher the oft-repeated question "How's the Market?" to a new person I meet who finds out I'm a Realtor, I am now taking it to the cyber streets so to speak. More so, there seems to be a growing need for me to add-value to folks out there who are passively and actively purchasing or selling Boulder County real estate. It is my full-time "on the front lines" role as a Realtor to add insight and perspective along the way as a property is coming soon onto the market to being active on the market to successfully getting sold. In this path, there are some trends and insights we can share as we look at monthly/quarterly/annual sales of the local market. I will also attempt to give some insights on currents events/local news and regulations that may affect the real estate whether "good" or "bad". So with this intro, let's go forth and look more closely at what is occurring in Boulder County and learn together...     Dunbar Hardy Broker Associate, EcoBroker, GREEN, GRI, ABR Walnut Realty, Inc. c - 303-859-7922
