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.

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.

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!

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:

Folsom & Co. is excited to have represented the seller for this transaction. Lots of inquiry on this town home lead to a closed deal in 59 days.

There are plenty of buyers out there right now. If you are looking to sell, drop us a line!

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!

A Dream Home Created

patricke&suzeWe are excited to see the results of this residential remodel in Boulder.

Folsom & Co. represented the buyers and worked diligently with the seller’s agent to make the purchase of this future dream home a reality.

Behind some extra walls and an outdated kitchen, Patrick and Suze found a great opportunity to turn this 70’s split level into a hip suburban hang out.

Way to go Patrick and Suze!

Never Too Young or Too Old

Opportunity exists around every corner, and the formula isn’t difficult.

Even in a strong market like Boulder, deals can still be found that can help you get ahead.

Take, for instance, the 14-year old girl from Florida who just purchased her first house.  To be fair she split the cost with her mother, but she’s quite adamant about buying her mom out and owning the house in her own name by the time she’s 18.  Who knows? Maybe she’ll own several houses by then!

Whether you are fourteen, or forty, now is a great time to get in the game!
