Boulder Creek In Your Back Yard and Options at Every Price Point [Fresh Listings, Get 'Em Hot]


The weekend before Thanksgiving is usually a very quiet time in Boulder real estate. Sellers who list are signaling their motivation. Buyers out there seeing houses are value oriented, but patient.

These are the best listings to hit the market this week. As usual, we also included several notable sales to keep you on top of market conditions. Remember: Smart real estate decisions are based on deep knowledge of market conditions, there is no substitute.

How Not to Win a Bidding War [Due Diligence]

by Osman Parvez
----
The most attractive listings in Boulder, priced appropriately and marketed professionally, attract multiple offers. Yes, even in this market.  

One way to increase the attractiveness of your offer (without increasing the price) is to limit the inspection (usually to health and safety items, or to a specific price threshold). Tightening up the inspection can help you win the bidding war, but forgoing the inspection entirely may cost a lot of money down the road. This is why.  



The service life for cast iron sewer pipes is 50 to 75 years. As the years go by, these pipes will rust away from the inside. Much of South Boulder was built in the 1950's, which means if the sewer pipe hasn't already been replaced, it will likely will need an expensive repair in the near future.  

A typical sewer scope will pick up root intrusions in clay, dislocations, and bellies. It might not catch a pipe that is close to failure and rusting away at the bottom.  

Never buy a house without an inspection.

Modern Meets Historic, Will It Be Happily Ever After? [Fresh Listings, Get 'Em Hot]


As we head into the holidays, new listings start to dry up but it's still a great time to shop for a new home. Why? Sellers who list at this time of year are often very motivated. The 4th Quarter is when we've been able to negotiate the best deals for our buyers.

As usual, we've sifted through the listings that hit the market this week. We've removed the bad locations, refreshed old listings, and otherwise undesirable properties.  The following homes are the best properties to hit the market.  

Reminder:  Just because we think a property is worth seeing doesn't mean we think it's worth buying, especially at the asking price.  Intelligent real estate decisions are based on deep market knowledge.  There is no substitute. 


To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of valuation, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896.

Sold Listings of Note


903 Pine St | $2.02MM | More Details
Historic. Large, functional layout. Beautifully updated and eye catching. The location is close to the center of everything. No garage, but at least there was off-street parking. It sold for 1.5% over asking, 4 days on market before the negotiation was settled, no concessions, conventional financing.  






1480 Ithaca Dr | $849K | More Details
A basic bi-level with some tasteful renovations. A good benchmark sale for the entry point in Table Mesa. Decent location, typical size lot.  It was on the market for only 9 days and sold for full asking, no concessions.






2790 Stanford Ave | $800K | More Details 
A solid choice for a buyer willing to remodel. Almost every finish begged for updating. This location and larger lot should easily support the follow-on capital. Stanford is close to trails and retail, plus Boulder's best schools. It was on the market for 3 days and sold for a few thousand over asking, no concessions. 





2930 Shadow Creek #303 | $282K | More Details 
Gold Run is a great choice for student rental investments in Boulder. It's in close proximity to CU, the majority of units are investor owned, and it offers clean, functional amenities. Valuation should be adjusted for location in the complex, whether or not the unit has elevator access, garage parking, and if it's on the top floor with vaulted ceilings (like this one). This unit sold for 2.8% below asking, 18 days on market, cash. Due diligence: Gold Run has a history of fire. Check for fire suppression systems.   

To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of valuation, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896.

Fresh Listings

Boulder 


2040 Hermosa Dr | $3.0MM | More Details
Originally listed at $1.7MM in April '16, it was on the market for 6 months and had several price reductions before it sold for $1.2MM a year ago. It's now back with what appears a new kitchen, new baths, and updated finishes. Some retail nearby at Iris and 28th. Due diligence: Compare the current listing photos to old pictures from a year ago. Are the improvements worth $1.8MM? Mr. Market will decide. 



711 Pine St | $3.0MM | More Details
No interior photos yet. Maybe they weren't ready in time but wanted to get it on the market this weekend anyway. Solid location. Pre-war but completely remodeled, according to the listing verbiage. What's it look like on the inside?  Schedule a showing to find out.   






1658 Modena Ln | $2.0MM | More Details 
Brand new and very tasteful. 5,000 SQFT on a third of an acre. Around the corner from Uptown Broadway and across the street from a city owned, possible future park.  

Due diligence: Based on the current flood map, this is likely in the 100 year flood zone but the listing verbiage says it's the 500 year flood. Verify before you submit your offer. A mortgage for a property in the 100 year flood requires flood insurance but also creates very specific constraints, ask your buyer's agent for details.  If they dismiss your concerns, find a better agent.  



To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of valuation, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896.


1301 Canyon Blvd #204 | $1.3MM | More Details 
Higher-end finishes, functional 2 bedroom layout, and a great location. It's across the street from Central Park and the Civic Area. Flatiron views. Due diligence: traffic noise from Canyon.






8922 Tahoe Lane | $825K | More Details 
An interesting one due to the unique HOA owned open space, including a lake and 13 acre park. Backs to a pasture. House itself was built this century and sits on a large lot.  









2965 13th St | $760K | More Details 
Excellent location for its proximity to downtown and future Alpine Balsam project. Basic 3/2 ranch built in the early 60's with just under 1,200SQFT. Some updates. If it's in good shape, the price is right. 








1770 Yellow Pine Ave | $733K | More Details 
Four bedroom four bath with a split layout, but at a more affordable price. Our nearby clients love the proximity to day care, open space, and north boulder retail options. Snooze ya lose, it's already under contract. The most attractive real estate is available for very short periods in Boulder. Responsive agents have a competitive advantage.




Louisville 


2332 Wynona Ct | $897K | More Details
Larger, family friendly house, newer construction, great layout, backs to open space, stroll to downtown.   Due Diligence: Train noise.

Trailhead Blazes on, a Sprawling Ranch with a View, and Entry Level Charmers [Fresh Listings, Get 'Em Hot]


Are you ready to see the best homes to hit the Boulder real estate market?

This week: benchmark sales in Trailhead, a sprawling ranch with (supposedly) unobstructed views in Frasier Meadows, and family friendly options in the outer 'burbs. As usual, we've culled the bad locations and refreshed old listings. To help educate you on market conditions, we've also included a more detailed discussion on notable sales.   



To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of real estate investments, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896.

Sold Listings of Note

2669 4th | $3.7MM | More Pics
This sale sets a benchmark for home values at Trailhead: a newly constructed 5 bedroom, 3 bath "urban farmhouse" with just under 5,000 SQFT. A significant portion of the property value is the position next to popular open space and downtown Boulder. Other well executed, newly constructed homes along open space on the west side of town should fetch similar values. Most buyers would likely pay an additional premium if this house offered a more privacy (we know we would). The adjacent lots are a little close and the location is not without development risk. Due diligence: Review plans underway for Alpine Balsam and the old Junior Academy. 

335 Dewey | $2.5MM | Details
Another comparable sale for Trailhead. This one about 1,000 SQFT smaller and with only 3 bedrooms, 3 baths. Lot size is substantially smaller too, but at least the buyer got a two car garage. No pics, sold off the MLS. On a $/F.SQFT basis, this sold at a 11.4% premium to 2669 4th (above), and that's ignoring the lot premium. 2669 4th was a better value. 

3105 Kittrell | 2.1MM | More Pics
If you're shopping for a perch, don't ignore South Boulder. This part of town offers opportunities, and they typically are not on the market for long. Open space access is equal or better to North Boulder, without the crowds, and the public schools outperform. Historically, South Boulder real estate trades at a discount to North Boulder, but the gap has been shrinking in recent years (and rightly so). 
3105 Kittrell is a giant lot with a view. It was available for only 3 days before a buyer snapped it up, paying a 3.5% premium (cash) and a fast closing. The late 60's raised ranch on this property won't remain for long. When the construction dust settles, some of the bones may still exist, but more likely it will be scraped for a fresh start. 

2345 Balsam | $2.0MM | More Pics
We took several buyers to see this property during the 20 months it was on the market. The location is excellent: Alpine, Balsam, and Panorama form a peninsula of high ground with homes on the edges overlooking north and south, yet easily within walking distance to downtown Boulder.  The design of this home checked a lot of boxes for buyers, and it should have sold quickly, but it was first listed at an eye popping $2.7MM.  After multiple price reductions, it sold for 30.1% below the original asking. Take home lesson: Price it right to maximize value and minimize time on market.  
It's critical to lead the market after a factual, deep analysis of the competitors. If your agent doesn't challenge your wishful thinking price, find a better Realtor.  


4500 Baseline, Unit 2301 | $459K | More Pics
We're not fans of Vistoso. After having taken many buyers to see condos here over the years, the reaction is nearly always the same. The layouts are awkward, and the overall design reminds us of a discount hotel. At only $459K for a sizable 2 bedroom, 2 bath however - they still make economic sense for certain buyers (CU students and young professionals). Getting past the lack of emotional appeal is a challenge. Due diligenceWhen the market is soft, units in this complex take a long time to sell.  


Fresh Listings

Boulder 

385 Erie | $1.1MM | More Pics
A large ranch with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths all on the main level.  The interior could use a refresh but appears in reasonable shape. The value is in the unobstructed views over the CU Chancellor's Residence. The risk is that the large parcel of land that provides that view could one day be redeveloped by CU. Given the resistance to CU Campus South, and the University's long term expansion plans, it's a risk you don't want to ignore. For now, it's a spectacular spot with beautiful views and social trails out your back door. The large ranch and substantive lot size also provides an excellent potential footprint for a second story. Due diligence: Research CU's Master Plan. 

To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of real estate investments, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896.


6968 Sweetwater | $785K | More Pics
Gunbarrel Green is just southwest of the golf course. Head east on Jay Road, and hang a left on Carter Trail into the last neighborhood before 75th Street. This particular house has some updates and a nice layout. It's also on a decent size lot, and the 3 car garage is a nice bonus. 




115 S 33rd | $730K | More Pics
A moderate size, 4 bedroom ranch with a rare, detached 2 car garage. It's also on one of the better (quieter) streets in Martin Acres. Nice updates; definitely worth taking a look. It's likely at some point the original garage was converted into a 4th bedroom.   


To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of real estate investments, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896.

Longmont 


1009 Boxelder | $650K | More Pics
This late 90's house is probably the value play for this weekend's listings.  It's a generously sized, 5 bedroom, 3 bath on the southwest side of town with a decent layout.  It's an easy commute to Boulder, has decent schools, and provides easy access to the area's best road cycling routes.  The color scheme is unusual and may not work for many buyers. But on the scale of home improvement expenses, paint is cheap. Also, ignore the scary posters in the teenager's bedroom. It's hard to believe they left those up.

Worth A Second Look  

Boulder 
1439 North | $1.5MM | More Pics
Originally listed in August at $1.6MM, this is the second $50K reduction. The house has some interesting architectural features.  It has no garage, but the location and reasonable lot size hints at greater potential. We're big fans of front porches. Due diligence: Casey Middle School traffic. 


To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of real estate investments, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896.

Investments

Boulder 


2995 Euclid | $3.2MM | Details
This hit my radar the moment it went on the market (Monday). While the current cap rate is ho hum, it's acceptable for carrying the investment. The potential to remodel the units for higher rent or possibly redevelop the property completely is the real opportunity. 20 bedrooms currently generate a verifiable $171,555 in gross rent. There are 12 parking spaces and the lot size is just under 13,000 SF.  Supposedly, it's a well maintained building with an original construction date from the mid 70's. 

Unfortunately, if you're just seeing this now, it's probably too late. The property was only available for 4 days and is now under contract. The best opportunities go quickly.  That's why it's important to work with a broker who is responsive.  We happen to know a good one.

A Modern Farmhouse and Options for Every Buyer [Fresh Listings, Halloween Edition]


Happy Halloween Weekend!  

A number of attractive spooky listings hit the market this week, including a surprising number at the entry point. Meanwhile, the luxury end seems to have fewer fresh options, but one really caught our eye. Take a look at 6033 Sunrise Ranch (below) for a beautifully executed interpretation of a modern farm house. 

Remember: Just because we think it's worth seeing doesn't mean it's worth buying, especially at the asking price.  



To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of valuation, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896.




Sold Listings of Note
Dozens of properties have already closed in Boulder during October. If you're tracking the market, sold listings of note are sales that you should know about.

2060 5th St | $2.89MM | Pics
Just because it's off the market doesn't mean it's gone. Like a zombie, listings sometimes come back from the dead. The seller of this one tested the market a couple of years ago and brought it back this spring. It was available for six months before receiving an offer and sold for 3.2% below the last asking price (9.4% below original ask). The house itself is tasteful, large, and recent construction. It featured a family friendly five bedrooms and a very nice downtown location, one block from West Pearl.   



2044 Walnut St B | $960K | Pics
A newer two bedroom, two bath, lock and leave condo in close proximity to the tell-tale heart of downtown Boulder. Vaulted ceilings, nice finishes, and a lightly finished 1 car garage or studio. Listed in July, it sold for 1% below last asking (2% below original ask). Sometimes, you just have to wait for the right buyer.  




To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of valuation, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896


1114 Neon Forest Cir 4 | $432K | Pics
A handful of locations in Longmont truly capture our attention and Prospect is near the top of the list. It’s hip, with a variety of modern and inspired architecture styles. The population is a diverse mix of ages, with many families, young professionals, and downsizing Boomers. The retail scene continues to improve, there are community events, and it’s only a short jaunt to the restaurant scene in Longmont's historic downtown. This 1 bedroom, 3 bath modern loft offers the possibility of commercial use - awesome for a small business owner or as a rental to offset to mortgage costs. It was available for just two weeks before a buyer locked it down. It sold this week for 4% below asking. 
Due diligence: Mixed use properties usually require non traditional, portfolio lending. 


Fresh Listings

Boulder 

4291 Prado Dr | $1.74MM | Pics
It’s true, as the listing description says, homes in Eldorado Springs rarely come on market. The location is attractive due to the proximity to open space, Boulder proper, and work centers on the tech corridor. The lot size of most of the adjacent parcels are a standard 1 acre, which creates a sense of privacy. This particular home is in need of a significant refresh throughout, but the bones might make for a good candidate for your project. 
Due diligence: South Boulder Creek is adjacent to this property, which creates a lovely riparian environment, but also possibly puts the property in the flood zone (now or in the near future). This often creates additional constraints to design plans, which buyers should explore before putting the property under contract. If your Realtor often fails to mention things like this, find one who understands their fiduciary responsibility.



To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of valuation, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896



3860 Cloverleaf Dr | $975K | Pics
After you're done gazing at the view, you should know that this mid ‘60’s tri-level has a choppy layout and the finishes are ready for the dumpster. There’s also a failing structural wall on the east side, likely caused by decades of neglect to bad drainage. But forget all that. It’s a compelling spec or end-user location, with a perch overlooking the already recapitalized neighbors. This is one of the better project locations we’ve seen this year, at a price that makes sense (i.e. dirt value). 

Note: We’ve shown this to some of our buyers already. If you're interested in our preview photos and video, contact us for more details. 



850 Hartford Dr | $787K | Pics
Ever since we sold our first house on Hartford drive about a decade ago, we’ve loved this location. The once barren field is now a park, the retail center is perfect for the usual necessities of life (grocery, coffee shop, brew pub, ice cream, breakfast bagels on the weekend), and the neighbors are re-investing in their homes. A mid 60’s ranch with an already finished basement is a good starting point for a future pop-top, assuming the house is actually liveable for most buyers today. Only a showing will tell. 




5935 Brandywine Ct | $735K | Pics
A large family friendly house with a good a layout, on the south side of Gunbarrel. One of several options that are fresh on the market this week. We sold a similar house on this particular street a few years back and the new owners love it.  They tell us the neighborhood regularly holds block parties and other events, which brings the community nicely together. Finishes are little dated on this one (likely original), but it’s offset by the cul-de-sac location and the three car garage. Finishes can be fixed, location cannot.  



4417 Wellington Rd | $695K | Pics
Another southwest Gunbarrel option, smaller SQFT than 5935 Brandywine, and a busier location. Mostly on this week's list for comparison purposes. We recommend seeing both. Call us to arrange private showings. 






4971 Cornwall Dr | $500K | Pics
An entry level priced four bed, three bath ranch (with a basement) on a good street in Heatherwood. Open space is nearby and the neighborhood has plenty of families. This particular one is quite dated inside, so save some budget for updates.
Due diligence: Popcorn ceilings of these vintage homes have a high probability of containing asbestos. Have it tested before you complete your inspection period. Mitigation is recommended. 



Louisville

203 Sunland St | $675K | Pics
A classic two story with some updates, including a remodeled kitchen and solar. The flash photography takes a little charm away, it should show better in person.   
Due diligence: the solar panels may be on a long term contract, ask before you write your offer. The house is also on the corner of Mckinley, which will get some traffic because it’s the feeder to the neighborhood to the north. Be sure to visit during rush hour.  


To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of valuation, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896.

Superior

3179 E Yarrow Cir | $489K | Pics
An entry level affordable house in a good location at Rock Creek. Lots of value for the square footage, easy commuting, and excellent nearby open space at Marshall Mesa. Ignore the flash photography, it should show better in person.  
Due diligence: Expansive soils are an issue in many places but buyers should pay particular attention in this location. If your Realtor doesn’t offer any tips on what to look for, find one one that does


Lafayette

512 S Bermont Ave | $550K | Pics
Only a few blocks from the rapidly improving downtown area and located on a gigantic +15,000 SQFT lot. Vaulted ceilings, an attractive layout, and appears to be well maintained. This has all the hallmarks of a good long term asset at an affordable price. 





Longmont 


6033 Sunrise Ranch Dr | $2.29MM | Pics
The land between Boulder and Longmont is a patchwork of open space and farm land, with rolling terrain and gorgeous views of the surrounding foothills. In this landscape, you’ll find working ranches, farms, and luxurious estate quality homes. This beautifully designed modern farmhouse style home was built in 2015, boasts just under 4 acres, and it's directly adjacent to open space. It features three beds, four baths, and a studio.  
Due diligence: verify the open space is truly open space. Also, there is no garage. Plan to build one.   


To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of valuation, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896

Investment Opportunities 

715 Arapahoe Ave 3 | $525K | Pics
A nice investment play. 3 beds, 2 baths, and a reasonable monthly HOA fee. On the second floor and it’s only a few steps away from downtown. It should be easy to find tenants. Look past the listing photos, call us for a private showing.    
Due diligence: Verify the claimed Smart Regs cert, required for all rental properties by December 31st, 2018.
