Boulder Housing Market Looking Better All the Time

Mark SneadGood news!  Residential real estate in Boulder is on the upswing. We couldn’t agree with this article from the Boulder County Business Report more:  a few more available homes could really help our clients.

This is a great article with lots of great news, not the least of which is the positive commercial and residential development. Good news for potential home buyers and sellers as Chuck Bellock, president of the Community Development Group, predicts,

 

We’re having a sustained housing recovery that will influence all of you at some time in the coming months.

The residential real estate report is about halfway down the article under the heading “Continued residential seller’s market seen in Boulder valley and worth the read.

Buy or sell, it is going to be a wild ride this year. Buckle up and ride with Folsom & Co!

Students Shocked To Learn They Can Buy Real Estate

CU Boulder Presidential classWe revitalized the “How to Rent and Buy in Boulder” presentation and presented to the Presidents Leadership Class – CU Boulder last week.

They thought we were crazy when we told them that as college students they could buy property.

They thought we were really crazy when we told them that people are already pre-leasing for Fall 2013.

First follow up meeting is booked. Glad we can help get everybody dialed in!

Meet the Team Monday: Meet Clint Folsom

Happy Meet The Team Monday!

Here is Folsom & Co. President Clint Folsom with a little insight on his approach. Since 1989, Clint’s personalized attention to detail has helped numerous families and investors realize their real estate dreams.

How We Truly View Our Clients

rebecca riskin - real estate agentWe’re not interested in “entertaining you at our club” or taking on hundreds of listings a month. We’re more inclined to agree with Ms. Duffy’s attitude shared in this article by Robbie Whelan in the Wall Street Journal that

every client is a “prized client.”

We want to offer you the best service around and earn the trust that allows you to recommend us to your friends and family.  At Folsom & Co, “#1” isn’t measured financially.

Good Signs for the Housing Market

high-end home salesThe high-end home market is on the rise, says John Mossman in his Denver Post article, “Luxury home market in the Denver metro area on the rise.”  With mortgage rates decreasing and home sales rising, the market is looking considerably better than the last couple years.

Prospective home buyers and sellers could use a few encouraging words after the last several years. John Brimberry of Vectra Bank Colorado shares a few:

There’s a lot of liquidity in the market and improved confidence, so a lot of people who’ve been sitting on the sideline can now sell their home or buy a nicer one.

The signs continue to be good around the Denver/Boulder area.

Some Less Than Good News

gas pump

Phillips 66, a leading oil and gas company, has issued its intent to sell the 400+ acres  it originally intended to use for building a research facility.

While the news comes as a disappointment to the city of Louisville where the property is located, most were not surprised considering the state of the economy since 2008 when the land was purchased.

The good news for the city is that the acreage will go back on the market shortly. And as mayor Bob Muckle points out, at least Phillips 66 has

assured us they’ll work hard to find a new user of the property that will be compatible with our community and beneficial for the region.

So, there is some good news to be had, and at least the mystery’s over.

The Folsom Formula

There is a lot to consider when choosing a real estate firm to assist you in your transaction.

We believe attention to detail and personal service set us apart from the rest. It is a formula that has worked since 1989.

Folsom & Co. President Clint Folsom explains in this video:

Boulder Destined for Development

walnut st updatesPearl St in downtown Boulder could look different in the near future. This week the city council voted in favor of letting an already-approved proposal stand. This proposal allows Karlin Real Estate to redevelop properties on Pearl St and Walnut St.

The decision was met with mixed emotions:

Some were in favor like Sean Maher, Downtown Boulder Inc., who said “tech companies are leaving Boulder for downtown Denver, and the city desperately needs more modern office space to keep its competitive edge.”

Others? Not so much.  “I’m that guy walking down Pearl Street shivering and wondering why it’s so cold and then realizing it’s that big building.” – Kent Young.

That’s the latest in Boulder development news. What do you think?

Great News for Sellers

home for saleRecent market activity shows that there aren’t enough sellers to go around. But there are plenty of buyers! If you’re a potential buyer, don’t be surprised if there are multiple offers on a property you’re interested in, says Steve Cook in his article for Real Estate Economy Watch.

Here’s what some realtors are saying about today’s market:

Believe it or not we are experiencing a trend toward multiple offers even in this still difficult market and there is evidence that this trend will continue as buyers compete in a market with limited inventory.

And if you’re a seller? This is great to see. And what’s more, it is happening in and around Boulder.

Let’s sell your house!
