Do You Value Money or Time? [Fresh Listings, Get 'Em Hot]


"Do you value the money or your time?"  

That's what my old boss used to say at listing appointments when a seller was being unrealistic. Accurate property pricing is one of the most critical aspects of an effective marketing strategy. For luxury property, even if you price it right, you may still have to wait for the right buyer to come along. Price it wrong and you'll be faced with the negative emotional impact of price reductions, and likely end up lower than you would if you priced it right to start.  

This week, both of our notable sales were on the market for lengthy periods. They were priced right and eventually, the buyers came along. Both are stunning and true eye candy for watchers of Boulder real estate.  

For fresh listings (homes you can actually purchase), the money or time question is also an important consideration. Buyers are paying a premium for turn-key, move-in ready homes because skilled labor costs have risen dramatically in Boulder and there are long wait times for qualified contractors. 

This week offers a variety of choices; from large luxury homes in Indian Peaks to adorable gems in Mapleton Hill - at a surprising price. For an executive living situation close to Google, check out the new listing at Iron Flats. If you desire a beautiful home in close proximity to historic downtown Louisville, we've got you covered too.

Remember: Worth seeing doesn't mean worth buying - especially at the asking price. For a private showing, which includes a discussion of valuation, negotiation strategy, and market conditions, call Osman at 303.746.6896. My goal is to help you make a smarter real estate decision.

Newlands eye candy, built in 2006. The seller is an interior designer. Great location, near North Boulder Park. 











825 North St | $1.35MM | More Details
Pre-war home in Newlands, previously used as a duplex. The location is in close proximity to the upcoming Alpine Balsam project, which might provide some future upside. Given its vintage, lack of parking and smaller lot size, expansion options will likely be limited. Due diligence: verify usage with the city.
