Boulder and the L's [Inventory Analysis]

by Osman Parvez

Smart house buyers and sellers adjust strategy to market conditions. 

The chart above shows the annual change (year over year) in total house inventory and inventory under contract for Boulder and the L's (Louisville, Lafayette, and Longmont).
The L's show the pattern you'd expect - when supply drops, percent under contract (a.k.a. absorption) increases. Louisville inventory is up 8.9% and homes under contract fell 9.0%. Lafayette inventory dropped 7.1% and houses under contract increased by 2.0%. Longmont inventory dropped 4.5% and houses under contract increased 8.0%.  

Boulder is the anomaly. Total inventory is up almost 5% while houses under contract have also increased by about the same.   

Remember: market conditions vary by price range, property type, condition, and location - down to the neighborhood and street level. Talk to your real estate adviser.   

Intelligent real estate decisions are based on a deep understanding of market conditions.
