Boulder County Buzz - June 2018

Boulder County is Busy and Thriving this Summer

  Happy Summer Solstice everyone! Well, between the extreme dry heat one day and the heavy hail storms the next, it’s no wonder we’re all amped up, here on the Front Range. Or maybe that’s just because it’s summer. And like last year at this time, the real estate market isn’t as dynamic as the previous few months. Buyers and sellers are seeing a difference in the market than even from a month ago and it’s important to help manage buyer and seller expectations in real time. My buyers are realizing they can take a little more time to decide on a home and they can make offers without necessarily removing conditions or offering above list price, while still having the winning offer. The number of properties under contract is down considerably and it may take a little longer for sellers to sell their home. It may be safe to say we’re in a buyer’s market in many cases. But not all markets within Boulder County, or even within the same town, behave the same — so please contact me if you want to learn more about what’s happening in your neck of the woods. 

Check out this month’s Buzz: Boulder County is getting a lot of attention — with a local city, Superior, CO having scored slots on several “Best Places to Live” lists, and countless fun and creative events happening throughout the summer. Check out the article below from BizWest outlining the recent Boulder Economic Summit, and learn how our real estate market is impacted by both housing and transportation issues.  May Stats are in: inventory is fluctuating, and prices are continuing to rise. The Buzz this month explores these topics and more!

Finally, and more importantly, is what’s happening with immigration reform where families being separated at our border. Attention is needed now for the people that are providing help for children who are being taken away from their detained parents. Today I’m featuring RAICES, The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, a Texas-based nonprofit organization dedicated to providing immigrant families and refugees with affordable legal assistance. You can donate money to support its team of 130 attorneys and staff members Please consider giving today. We did!  Thank you, HATCH
