15 Properties Worth Seeing [Get 'Em Hot]

by Osman Parvez

Did you miss me?    I was traveling last week and with two separate negotiations in play, I just didn't have time to blog.   

It usually happens around this time of year.    Blogging takes a backseat to active negotiations.   Clients come first.     

Well, let's get to it.   Fifty two new listings hit the MLS this week.  I've sifted through them,  thinking I'd struggle to find ten properties worth seeing.  

Surprise! I found fifteen.    Ready to see them?   Call me to arrange a showing at 303.746.6896

1825 Marine Street #18.    It's a tiny one bedroom sandwiched between CU and downtown.   It's under $200K.   You may be able to squeeze an extra bed into the loft space.   Won't last long is an understatement.   Due diligence tip:  If you're thinking about doing an Air BnB type thing, double check the HOA rules.    $169,000

1480 Quince Street #201.   Awesome location.   Part of Nomad Cohousing and Boulder Affordable Housing.   $242,206.  If you qualify, go check it out. (Home ownership handbook.   The eligibility requirements for affordable housing are on page 5.   Required classes before you can apply to enter the lottery.)

4482 Hamilton Ct.   Tri-level in Martin Acres, all original.   Giant lot.  Asking $425,000.   Homes under $500,000 continue to be the hottest segment of the market.  Budget for updates. 

2621 Lloyd Circle.    Worth seeing because it's so unusual (i.e. might be a frankenhouse).   The location is pretty good but a half-duplex that needs updating for $449,000?   

655 Poplar Ave.    Nicely buttoned up attached dwellings appeal to baby boomers who want the Boulder lifestyle but not the maintenance headache of a traditional house.    Too bad there aren't many of them available, which is why you should probably go see this one.   It's near Wonderland Lake open space trails. 

2890 Stanford Ave - 60's era construction, decent size structure on a larger lot in a desirable part of Table Mesa for under $589,500.   3 bedrooms on the main level, one in the basement.  Due diligence: Elementaries are listed as both Bear Creek and Creekside, it's worth confirming this with BVSD.

4882 Kellogg Circle -  Arapahoe Ridge is a nice part of town with a pocket park and lots of families.  Lot sizes and homes tend to be a little more generous.   This house a decent layout and some updates.    Asking $664,000

1444 Kennedy Ct.    This looks like the same model as 4882 Kellogg above, but with a nicer kitchen (on a smaller lot).    It's a little more updated but you'll need to confirm that in person.   If you're interested in one of these, you should see both back to back if possible.   Asking $673,700

4135 Caddo Parkway -  A large ranch with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths on a large lot in Frasier Meadows.   Could use some updates, but then again I hear teal is coming back.

1222 Scrub Oak.    The split layout is not going to work for most families but it's a decent size, mostly updated house in a great part of Table Mesa. You're just around the corner from the Devil's Thumb neighborhood which has some private amenities that you can't use without a guest pass.  Make friends with the neighbors.  Asking $799,000.  

753 Pearl Street.   In the heart of downtown?  Check.    Lock and leave, maybe.   I have no clue who Wolff Lyon is or why his name is written in all caps.      But hey, classy closets - right?     In all seriousness, recently constructed downtown condos with a decent layout and square footage are very desirable.  If you're in this market, go see it.   Asking $849,000.

355 Longwood Ave.  If you're going to spend $1MM+ in Boulder, you want views like this house.  Note the wrap around decks that emphasize outdoor living.    Perches overlooking Viele lake are pretty rare.    Note, the layout is upside down.   Asking $1MM.

1421 Sunset Blvd.  Great house on a pricey piece of high land within a stone throw's of downtown Boulder.  I almost listed it, so I know a good deal about this one, none of which is publishable.  Asking $1.4MM

2490 Kohler Dr.   No apparent views but a giant size lot in a desirable section of Table Mesa.   The list of luxury appointments suggest an impressive house but there are no photos of the interior.  It's a big mystery.  The listing does describe 4 inline A/C units though.    Brrr...    Asking $1.75MM

2215 Mesa Drive.   Spectacular location close to downtown on a solid perch with unimpeded views.   Relative recent construction.   Lots of decks.  No argument, probably worth every penny.   Asking $2.0MM.
