Boulder County Buzz - May 2019

Spring is finally in full swing, and summer is only a month away, which is hard to believe. Now that we've surely seen the last of the snow and cold, it's time to think about our gardens. The Hatches raised garden beds are starting to see sprouts from radish, kale and beet seeds pushing through the soil. And the hops vines are reaching higher by the minute. I have a great article here on container gardening, and some helpful guides from Colorado State University with a lot of info if you're just starting out as a green thumb.

Boulder County Buzz - April 2019

Springtime in the Rocky Mountains!!!! The snow has all but melted off the Boulder Flatirons (for now) and in my yard at the Red Door Ranch the crocus are flowering, the leaf buds are pushing out and spring tunes from songbirds fill the morning air! And ahhhh, the sunsets most evenings are remarkable.

As the weather finally begins to warm, so does our local real estate market. Inventory is on the rise as more sellers are putting their homes on the market for spring/summer 2019. If you're a buyer, this is a great time to shop. The market seems a little more balanced and if you're putting your home on the market this year (or next!) check out the articles I've included below about anticipating returns on home renovations and landscaping projects. Want to talk about local market trends or start shopping for a new property? Please give me a call when you're ready to chat! Read more

Boulder County Buzz - March 2019

It’s March and spring has sprung, NOT! But some of us are celebrating the fantastic winter we've been so fortunate to receive the past month. The long cold spell we’ve had has come with snow too. And lots of it, especially in the high country. Remember last year when the ski resorts had to MAKE SNOW? Not so much this year. I read that Summit County has almost 8’ of snow this year already. BOOM! But I don’t ski much anymore, so why is this exciting? Because this snowmelt will fill our rivers and streams with water and deliver good trout fishing to anglers all spring, summer and fall. That makes me happy! 

Temperatures remain brisk, but the sun is shining longer, brighter, and warmer here in Boulder County! As everyone starts to emerge from their winter hibernation, it's the perfect time to consider listing your home before summer inventory starts to fly. Buyers are marching into the landscape, eager to purchase. Please stay tuned for my new spring listings. There are some good ones coming soon. So let the wild rumpus start! Read more

HATCH SELLS LOWER CHAUTAUQUA!

HATCH SELLS LOWER CHAUTAUQUA!

Dear neighbors and friends, this year marks the 13th anniversary of the very first edition of your On the Corner newsletter. I began publishing OtC in the early days of my real estate career as a way to bridge my professional photojournalism career and my real estate career. It’s kept me very engaged in this neighborhood, which has so many stories to tell. This spring also marks my 15th year in the real estate business. It’s awesome to have grown such a successful business. I’ve worked really hard to make it this far and I definitely recognize that a lot of my business comes from right here in the neighborhood.

On the opposite of this big card you’ll see homes that I sold here in 2019. Each of them are so different and they all have such interesting histories. Like many homes here, they also have been through different transformation over the years. The homes built in the LC have just as interesting stories to tell as the residents that call Lower Chautauqua home. “If these walls could talk,” right? Such rich history here, and that’s why I appreciate it so much. And I appreciate you. You’ve entrusted me to market and sell your homes and you’ve trusted me to help you buy the house here that you now call home. The many homes I’ve sold here dot the neighborhood from Bellevue Heights to Interurban Park and from the Cul-de-sacs off King Avenue to Baseline Road. Many of you have referred business to me over the years and for that I am grateful and truly appreciate your business and your referrals! I’d like to continue to earn your trust. Please contact me anytime to discuss selling or buying real estate. I’m happy to offer a market analysis of your home anytime, with no strings attached! Sincerely, HATCH

Love is in the air in Boulder County

It's February and love has been buzzing in the air here in Boulder County. I picked a bad week to stop eating Ghirardelli chocolate and Dunkin’ Donuts, but I’ll be fine this Valentine's season.  Read more…
