Need a Short Term Rental in Boulder?

by Osman Parvez

So you're moving to Boulder and planning to buy. Want my advice? Make a smarter real estate decision and rent first.     

Renting takes the pressure off. It allows you to get to know neighborhoods and you'll better understand market conditions. Of course, you'll have to deal with a double move. Plus, the rental market is even tighter than the buying market.   It's hard to sift the wheat from the chaff from afar. 

One solution is to rent at a newer development. They're nicely finished, energy efficient, and well designed. All offer shorter term leases (usually 6 months) and have systems to allow you to end the lease early without incurring draconian penalties.   

Here's how current availability shapes up at some of Boulder's newest developments. If you're an investor, you will also want to pay attention to this chart. 

Demand varies dramatically by model and price, so do your homework before you sign the lease. You want the one that is the most easy to turn around when you find the right property to purchase.

Why do we do it? Because it's an independent, unbiased opinion on the condition of the property and allows our relocation clients to feel more confident when renting from afar. It's a taste of our real estate advice and an example of the quality of our work. As a relationship building exercise, it also usually leads to representing the client in the eventual purchase or sale of real estate in Boulder.
