Like a Needle In the Haystack [Fresh Listings, Get 'Em Hot]




By Osman Parvez
-------
When you're on the hunt for property, it can feel like hunting for a needle in the proverbial pile of straw. Inventory in Boulder remains low. Many properties are burdened with deferred maintenance or need updating, while the most desirable options attract multiple offers. It's not easy out there. 

Last year, we closed a record number of deals in the Boulder area. The key is to see a lot of inventory, while being selective to avoid wasting time. Discipline is important, not only because time is short, but to avoid feeling pushed into poor choices simply out of of frustration.

We've gone through this week's fresh inventory and pulled out the most desirable options by culling out bad locations, refreshed old listings, and properties that are egregiously overpriced. The following are the best listings to view this weekend. We've also included a few notable sales to help educate you on market conditions.  


Happy house hunting!

Remember: Worth seeing doesn't mean worth buying. 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

Recently closed transactions that highlight market conditions.


1260 Norwood Ave | $2.2MM | Eye Candy    
This house looked radically different when it last sold in 2016 for $1.8MM, so much that it's hard to recognize - until you look at the kitchen photos. Check out the before (link) and after (link) listing photos. It's a 4 bedroom, 5 bath with over 5,000 SQFT in a location I would have cautioned my buyer against - it's only one in from Broadway. Listed at $2.4MM last August, under contract at the end of the year, and closed at $2.15MM last week.  



2930 Broadway St 205 | $839K | Details
After many years of sluggish development, largely due to neighborhood opposition, the Washington School Development is nearing completion and the last remaining units are being sold. This ~1100 SQFT 1 bedroom, 2 bath sold for $839K. Close to downtown, walkable to Ideal market and the Alpine-Balsam development. Subject to traffic noise and new construction risks. Due diligence: Cohousing is a form of intentional community but it's not for everyone. Haven't heard of it? Ask a Realtor expert with over 20 years of direct experience with Cohousing.



684 Tantra Dr #B | $382,500 | Details
These South Creek condos are a compelling SoBo investments. Location is reasonably close to retail and open space. The owners and tenants are primarily graduate students and young professionals. Comparable sales ranged from $365K to $408K, but the top end reflected an updated, top floor unit with views sold during the summer. This particular seller tried for top dollar but the market wasn't there, not during the winter, and not for a ground floor unit with basic finishes. Listed at $400,000 in December, sold for $382,500. Mr. Market always wins in the end.

The best of Boulder real estate and beyond.

Boulder 


1360 Walnut St #401 | $3.6MM | Eye Candy    
Ooh la la! What a crash pad. Nearly 2,800 SQFT of prime downtown luxury real estate with views your friends will drool over. Designed with an eye to blend indoor and outdoor living seamlessly. Boulder history: That giant checkerboard building in the photos? Officially, it's called the Colorado Building but locals know it as "the Monstrosity." The developer, once a darling of the Boulder investment community, committed fraud and ended up in jail, but not before attempting to flee authorities on his yacht "Seawolf" with his female assistant.



7273 Old Post Rd | $970K | Details
The interior feels like a 70's museum but the location makes this sprawling house worth a look. It's hard to find desirable homes in the Boulder Country Club for below $1MM. Main floor master. Large lot. Bring your remodeling budget but please tell me you're going to keep that wood stove. Wow.



6750 Whaley Dr | $950K | Details 
Moderately sized, late 60's two story with four bedrooms, three baths, and a large lot (nearly an acre). Good layout, dated interior. The key to understanding valuation in this location (unincorporated Boulder County, adjacent to Spanish Hills) is knowing which houses have spectacular views, and which ones are impeded. Although there's tons of open space nearby, we're not aware of any official access points. Due diligence: Ask your agent about the cost of remodeling. If they shrug and talk about how easy it can be, get a better agent.


755 S 43rd St | $699K | Details
Basic three bedroom, three bath ranch in Majestic Heights. From a valuation perspective, it has a basement with what appears to be a separate living area. Could be compelling to entry level buyers looking for a roommate or short-term rental income to supplement their carrying cost. Estate sale. Mild updates. 




4585 13th St #1F | $625K | Details
Inboard side of the complex, fairly nice mountain views. This two bed, two bath features luxury finishes and a solid location. Uptown Broadway has an attractive retail mix and upside potential as the North Boulder Subcommunity Plan gradually unfolds. Wonderland Lake open space across the street. Due diligence: the HOA is currently working through an EIFS stucco issue with the original developer and its insurance company. This could affect liquidity if it ends up in litigation. Full disclosure: House Einstein's office is in this location and Osman owns an investment condo as well. Update: Snooze you lose, it's already under contract. This is why we strive to take our clients to see property within 24 hours of a listing hitting the market. The most compelling real estate isn't available for long. Agent responsiveness is a competitive advantage. Ask us how we do it.


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



Louisville 



904 Pikes Peak Ln | $1MM | Details
Moderately sized five bedroom, four bath with a good layout, three car garage for the toys, walkout basement, and a solid location. Davidson Mesa open space is nearby. Downtown Louisville is a short bike ride away. If you ride the trails through the open space, you can easily connect to the US36 bikeway. Good schools. Due diligence: Funky roof, might be a plus. Check for traffic tolerance, it's a through street.



289 Jackson Cir | $800K | Details
Five bedroom, four bath family house in a decent location. Interior has some nice updates as well as an open kitchen. Bike paths to open space access are nearby. Layout might be a little quirky, appears as the front door opens into the dining area. Worth a look. 




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

Niwot


7556 Crestview Dr | $985K | Details
Mailing address is Longmont, but this larger four bedroom, four bath property is in unincorporated Boulder County and feeds into excellent Niwot schools. Mid 90's construction and at this price point, don't expect many updates. As of this writing, no interior photos have been offered up. All we know is that it has a split layout. Location is nestled back from 95th St. Due diligence: What appears to be adjacent open space nearby may not be so. Immediate neighbors are individual lots with homes. Development risk is relatively low, but be sure to check. 



7592 Nikau Dr | $514K | Details
Niwot has a small number of entry level houses. Most are right off Niwot Road in Cottonwood Park, with easy access to retail plus a quick commute into Boulder. This one is a four bedroom, three bath ranch with a basement and a two car garage. Small lot, vaulted ceilings, basic finishes. Bonus: Basement tiki bar. 




8033 Countryside Park #209 | Price TBD 
Our listing, coming soon. It's a large, light filled two bedroom, two bath condo with vaulted ceilings and a loft. The LOBO trail is practically out your back door, along with Boulder's best cycling routes. The location is well situated between Longmont and Boulder. Niwot has great schools and vibrant restaurants. Looking for small town charm but still live close enough to ride your bike to work in Boulder? Call us for more details and to arrange a private showing before it hits the MLS. 


Commercial


2600 30th St 201 | $1.1MM | Details
If you're a believer that the Google campus will ammenitize nearby real estate, here's an investment opportunity to consider. Located nearby in Steel Yards, this second floor office condo has nearly 2,600 SQFT and seven parking spaces. Due diligence: Steel Yards is mixed use which adds to the attractiveness of the complex but complicates financing for the residential side.

Flood Zone? What Flood Zone? [Fresh Listings, Get 'Em Hot]


By Osman Parvez
-------
2018 is off to a strong start. This week, a number of interesting properties hit the Boulder real estate market. We sifted through and pulled out the best.  

Our picks include a cute Newlands bungalow as well as luxury attached dwellings for students, young professionals, and mature adults. If you're in the market for a CU kiddie condo, there's also a well located one that you should go see and it's at a surprisingly affordable price. A few family friendly options made the list, too, but more than one may be subject to the 100 year flood. 

Is it big deal? Yes, period. Not only can the cost to insure ratchet up quickly, a 100 year flood designation creates additional constraints for improvements and modifications. If your agent doesn't understand or take it seriously, find a better agent

Market Update
Before we discuss specific listings, let's talk about market conditions.. 

As of this writing, house inventory is about the same as last year in Boulder, while inventory for condos/town homes has increased markedly - a good portion from new development, including S'PARK. Meanwhile absorption has dropped slightly for houses but remains about the same for attached dwellings.  

What does it mean? In short, selection is better this year for buyers seeking town homes and condos and demand is steady. Meanwhile, demand for houses is slightly lower, which could further open up supply. 

OK. Are you ready to see some real estate? Let's go...



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

3551 4th St | $2.69MM | More Details
Wow, this house is beautiful. It was also on the market for eight months before it sold, dropping from an original list price of $3.2MM to a closing price of $2.7MM. Click above for photos and prepare to drool. Located in a spectacular location with potential access to social trails into Sanitas. Well bought.


4585 Martin Dr | $650K| More Details
Frankly, we advise our clients to not see houses like this. They're often beautiful inside and a compelling value, if you can *just* ignore that one thing. What's that one thing? Location. Check out the pretty pics, then look at the map. Originally listed at $700K, sold for $650K, after about 5 months on market.

Boulder 


2801 Penn Ave 202 | $1.03MM | More Details
A well appointed, luxury condo with high end finishes. Close to campus and the Boulder Creek Path. Mountain views. Due diligence: Subject to traffic noise from 28th.






1930 Bluebell Ave | $990K | More Details
Large ranch with dated finishes. The value is the substantial lot in a location dotted with renovated and expanded properties. Ranches tend to be the best platform for building a newer, modern house. 
Due diligence: Check the updated FEMA flood maps. The maps on the MLS are dated. Consider obtaining a elevation cert as part of due diligence.



3101 Bluff St | $935K | More Details
One of many town homes available at S'Park, a project which should be substantially completed this year. It's walking distance to Google and a variety of retail options. Area should continue to rapidly improve. Due diligence: train noise.




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


5192 Holmes Pl | $919K | More Details
Large, dated family home in a decent location. Arapahoe Ridge has more substantial lot sizes and greater separation between homes, a neighborhood pocket park, and good schools. Due diligence: Flood mapping. Supposedly the seller has a flood cert. Make your offer contingent on confirmation of flood status and final approval of FEMA Letter of Map Amendment. 

Take a look at the map below. It's from the latest approved FEMA/City flood map. The dot is the subject property. The darker purple area is the 100 year flood zone, which surround the property on three sides. The lighter purple is the 500 year flood. Ask your agent about the constraints of the 100 year flood. If they don't know, get a better agent.  





3134 11th St | $900K | More Details
Bungalow in Newlands in a decent location. Historic and charming. Due diligence: Potential for some traffic noise from Broadway.  Also, keep in mind that historic review may be required for many permit applications and the size is constrained by compatible development regulations. 



3805 Britting Ave | $875K | More Details
Moderately sized 4 bedroom, 3 bath family house in Bear Creek. Could use some cosmetic updates but it appears reasonably well kept.







2850 E College Ave 402 | $725K | More Details
Top floor penthouse with 3 beds and 3 baths, plus 2 underground parking spaces. It's priced only 9% above the sale price from 2013. It wouldn't surprise me if this doesn't last the weekend. Due diligence:  Landmark Lofts has very high student density. It's close to campus, not far from 29th Street, but subject to traffic noise from 28th.


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




4656 Ingram | $670K | More Details
5 bedroom, 3 bath ranch with a basement in Martin Acres. Some nice updates in this one, despite the cluttered listing photos. Subject to traffic noise from US36 and Moorhead.






3701 Arapahoe Ave 301 | $665K | More Details
Peloton resale. 2 bed, 2 bath with 1200+ SQFT and 2 garage spaces. Ask your agent to compare prices to newly released units from the sales office. This might be a bargain. 






1825 Marine St 11 | $300K | More Details
For years, I mistakenly believed 1 bedroom units were a bad investment. When I finally compiled and analyzed the data, I found the historic appreciation rate was essentially the same for 2 bedroom units in Boulder. The difference is in the availability and quality of tenants and the speed of resale. This one is in the perfect location for students. You're probably not going to find a cheaper property outside of affordable housing. The HOA dues are reasonable (for now) and it includes one reserved parking space. The loft style layout looks good, despite the small size. Currently rented at $1345/month and the tenant wants to stay. If junior is considering CU or Naropa, this could be a good option. Cash or portfolio loans only, the complex is non warrantable due to investor ownership (like many developments in Boulder).

Offer Submitted | The Waiting

by Osman Parvez
----
Our first offer for 2018 was submitted last night. It's on a very attractive fresh listing and multiple offers are on the table. Right now, the listing agent is going through the offers and comparing them to each other. Our offer is strong. We've followed up to see if there were any questions or concerns. At this moment, we don't have anything to do but to wait for a response.

It's common that the offer prices will come in very close to each other, which means "soft" factors come into play. If one of the offers is cash, that's usually the winner, but some cash buyers try to low-ball which can sway the deal. Agent reputation definitely matters and we have a very good one in the Boulder real estate community. Many sellers will give up a little cash to offer the house to an end-user instead of an investor, which is why we include a personal note.

After review, the listing agent will almost certainly recommend one of the offers over others, and most likely there will be no counter, just an acceptance. Many of our clients are surprised by this, but it occurs to maintain deal momentum. Protracted negotiations are rare, especially with multiple offers and high volume Realtors. However, if a counter is presented, it will most likely be verbal and we won't have much time to react.

We've advised our clients to sit tight and enjoy the warm weather in Boulder today. We'll be in touch as soon as we hear anything. In the meantime, we can enjoy the late, great Tom Petty.

New Year Brings New Variety


By Osman Parvez
-------
With a new year comes new opportunity. In Boulder, inventory typically grows in early January and steadily builds until it reaches a seasonal peak in late May or early June.  If you're serious about buying real estate, now is the time to meet with your Realtor to develop an effective strategy for finding the right home. 

Part of that strategy should include seeing listings regularly, even if you're months away from pulling the trigger. When the right one hits the market, you won't have time to familiarize yourself with contract norms, negotiation tactics, or property valuation. Remember: Intelligent real estate decisions are based on deep market knowledge. There is no short-cut. 


This week, about 70 properties hit the market in Boulder. We've sifted through and picked out the freshest, most desirable homes for your viewing pleasure. As always, if you have any questions or would just like to talk about real estate, don't hesitate to give us a call.  

p.s. Don't forget, just because it's worth seeing doesn't mean it's worth buying. 


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

194 Artesian Dr | $1.32MM | More Details
An apartment building with a mix of studios, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom apartments, in the heart of Eldorado Springs. Sold for $175K below asking after it was originally listed on June 1st of last year. 100% occupied with a cap rate at 6.7%. Why did it take so long to sell? Perhaps the fact the building is almost 100 years old and Eldo is a very unique place.

Boulder 

2040 Walnut St | $2.24MM | More Details
Elegant, spacious and in a decent downtown location with a great neighbor to the west (I'm looking at you, Dave). Built in 1910 and completely renovated. Includes tasteful guest house with kitchen and bath.  Due diligence: High student density from nearby apartment buildings.  



1945 Norwood Ave | $2.09MM | More Details
Just east of 19th street, not far from Centennial Middle School.  This location is a quick bike ride downtown, but still quiet. Most neighboring homes sit on larger lots. This one is a 5 bed, 5 bath with a rare 3 car garage. It's large, nicely finished and sits on a decent size lot. Note:  Normally when a listing leads with an interior shot, there's something off about the curb appeal.  Not so in this case. The photos are likely just out of order. 



430 S 40th St | $800K | More Details

Extensively renovated ranch in Martin Acres in a decent location.  The house features modern interior finishes, a vaulted living space, 1 car garage and a finished basement.  Exterior looks a little unassuming. Give it a modern cosmetic finish (stucco, perhaps) and call it done.  Is that a Studio Shed in the backyard?  



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



4860 Sioux Dr | $680K | More Details
3 bed, 2 bath ranch in Keewaydin. Good bones for a remodel, which it needs. Only four homes away from Foothills.  Due diligence: Road noise and it's in the 100 year flood.  If your agent says that's no big deal and starts talking about Google, find a Realtor who will walk you through the risk and constraints



6533 Barnacle St | $630K | More Details

Wonderfully updated home close to Twin Lakes and Avery. Vaulted ceilings, 4 beds and 3 baths at an affordable entry level price point. Due diligence:  Will your insurance policy cover a climbing wall?






5425 White Pl | $485K | More Details
3 bed, 2 bath townhome near 55th and Arapahoe. Decent finishes and a 2 car garage. This is a quiet area with low student density. Close to Blackbelly, which has a fantastic happy hour. Other retail, too.  








Longmont 




2303 Barn Swallow Dr | $560K | More Details

A solid option for an affordable family house in South Longmont. 4 bedrooms on the upper level, 3 baths and over 3,000 SQFT. High ceilings. Close to bike paths, Whole Foods, and an easy commute to Boulder. 




340 Vivian St | $500K | More Details

Charming bungalow in Old Town. Well maintained, nice finishes, finished basement and a 2 car garage. Short bike or drive to Main St. 






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

Superior 


2361 Stonecrop Way | $465K | More Details

One of a number coming on market, most at higher price points.  This 3 bed, 4 bath, 1600 SQFT townhome is in the new Downtown Superior. Currently under construction. Click to see renderings. We are interested to see how this development turns out. It's compelling for buyers looking for a home close to both mountain activities and city culture/amenities. The price is affordable. One of our clients closes on one later this month.

Psst... Coming Soon: Awesome Condo

by Osman Parvez
----
Psst.... We have a fantastic condo coming to market soon. Now that we have a listing agreement in place, we can tell you about it. 

You're looking at a gorgeous, updated, south-facing 2 bedroom, 2 bath (full baths) property with covered parking. The location is excellent. From your front door, it's an easy walk to Ideal Market, downtown restaurants and retail. It's a short half mile from the Sanitas trails and just 1.6 miles to Google at 30th/Pearl. 

From an investment perspective, the coming Alpine-Balsam development will likely support further appreciation and rental demand. Additionally, the complex recently underwent significant renovations and is now nicely updated. Student density is low. 

We are in the early stages of the listing, with professional photography and final pricing yet to be determined. The property is currently tenant occupied. The lease expires shortly.  Most recent comparable sales have sold for more than asking.  

If you're interested, please give us a call. ph: 303.746.6896

To our clients, colleagues, and friends. We have deep gratitude for your trust in us. Thank you.

Eye Candy in Chautauqua, Flips in Table Mesa, and Historic Old Town Charmers [Fresh Listings, Get 'Em Hot]

Fresh listings this week include a gorgeous high-end rebuilt home in Rosehill, land with flatiron views near Valmont Butte, and a pair of affordable family houses in south west Longmont. Are sellers motivated or just trying to get a jump on the 2018 market?  

As usual, we've sifted out the bad locations, refreshed old listings, and otherwise less desirable properties. The following are the best listings to hit the Boulder area real estate market this week. Are you ready to see some houses? 


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

342 Hollyberry Ln | $1.68MM | More Details
Who says there isn't a fix and flip opportunity at the higher end? 342 Hollyberry sold last February for $865K and after renovation, closed for $1.6MM last week. The location was a key driver to the valuation. Nice work on the finishes, too.





3179 6th St | $949K | More Details
A lightly updated ranch style bungalow in central Newlands, a few blocks from open space. Smaller lot. Sold for asking after months on market and several price reductions. 





Fresh Listings

Boulder 



820 8th St | $4.27MM | More Details
High-end luxury living in the heart of Chautauqua. Rebuilt this year on the bones of the original 1948 structure. Interior (likely structural) columns are a little odd, perhaps they could be addressed. Spectacular location. Turn-key. Due diligence: Parking pattern changes due to the new Chautauqua parking system. Check to see if the front of your new house is a parking lot.



1301 Canyon #204 | $1.25MM | More Details
2 bed, 2 bath in One Boulder Plaza. Great views, walk to the farmers market in your pajamas. High end finishes. Spacious. Lock and leave. Due diligence: The bus garage/station side of the building is loud and sells at a discount to others. Analyze the comps.  




2224 Mead Dr | $800K | More Details

Updated ranch in unicorporated Boulder County. West facing views. Large lot and not far from retail at 95th and Arapahoe. If you want a rural feel and a little more space, while remaining in close proximity to the city of Boulder, this is a reasonably priced option.  





1520 Greenbriar Blvd | $600K | More Details
South Boulder end-unit town home. Spacious with 4 beds, 4 baths. Close to parks, trails and retail at Table Mesa.  Across the street for Fairview athletic fields. We have several clients with investment properties in this spot. It's a great location that works for a variety of buyers and tenants.





Longmont 


5101 William Pl | $665K | More Details
South west Longmont ranch with a finished basement. Nice finishes, open layout. Built in 2015. Due diligence: Markel and others are in the process of a significant build out in SW Longmont. Compare to new construction options and prepare for a slow down in the appreciation rate as the new supply comes to market. 




1317 Longs Peak Ave | $555K | More Details
Old Town bungalow with historic charm, some updates and a finished basement. Adorable and a quick bike into the thriving center of downtown Longmont.

Here's an opportunity to own a substantial 35 acre lot off 63rd near Jay Rd. Build your own dream home and enjoy privacy and incredible scenery. A good portion of the parcel is the pond. Due diligence: industrial and business use to the south.  Also be sure to explore building restrictions and potential flood plain.
