Majestic Modern and Historic Charmers [Fresh Listings, Get 'Em Hot]

Ooh, la la.  This week's listings are spectacular eye candy; from a chic downtown condo to historic family homes on the Hill, from the Granary developer's personal home to a family friendly luxury house in Fourmile Creek.  

Over 100 listings hit the market this week and as they say in the real estate business, time is of the essence. 

What's worth seeing?  As usual, let's kick things off with a discussion of sales - including some recent bidding wars.  Grab your slip-on shoes, it's time to schedule your showings.

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.

p.s. Looking for market stats?  We've got you covered.

Sold Listings of Note

1330 King Ave | $2.79MM | More Details
A custom home in Bellevue, nestled against Chautauqua. Generous size and a large, private lot. Early 2000’s construction. Sold at asking with only 6 days on market. The east-coast buyer had been searching for almost two years. They flew in after their broker previewed it to lock it down.  This is why we do video previews for our clients

1095 Redwood Ave | $2.61MM | More Details
Granary subdivision, only two years old. The developer’s home, so you better believe it was spectacular. Fantastic views of Wonderland. Sold for $225K over asking. Correction: It was not the developer's personal home, it was constructed on spec.  Our apologies for the incorrect information. Still spectacular.

531 Maxwell Ave | $1.5MM | More Details
To convince a seller to accept an offer before it hits the full market, you have to go in strong. The buyer of 531 Maxwell paid $250K over asking, cash. A classic example. Compare to 2436 4th St, currently asking $985K.

2045 Mapleton Ave | $2.95MM | More Details
Not just a house, it’s part of Boulder history and on our city’s most iconic street. Built in 1885, restored, and supposedly ready to go for the next owner. OAU potential. 

4204 S Hampton Cir | $1.65MM | More Details
Luxury in Fourmile Creek with exceptional indoor/outdoor living spaces. 6 beds and 4 baths with nearly 5000 sqft. Perfect spot in this family friendly neighborhood. Click more details (above) for the eye candy.

970 11th St | $1.6MM | More Details
A classic, landmarked Craftsman on University Hill. Bring your imagination, it's not staged. Don't forget to check the bins in the alley for red cups.

1250 Judson Dr | $1.25MM | More Details
A modernized and expanded mid-century modern in an A-grade location in Table Mesa. Most reputable, quality builders have a year or more worth of projects lined up. Why wait? Here’s a potential turnkey option.

1637 Pearl St 301 | $1.1MM | More Details
Wow. Eye candy and the perfect downtown location. If you want luxury, modern, lock and leave - here’s your chance. 1 car garage is a plus. 

2436 4th St | $985K | More Details
Compare to 531 Maxwell described in Notable Sales, above. Discount it slightly for the busier street (although half the traffic will probably be bicycles). It’s a value investment. Close to Sanitas.  
1387 Yellow Pine Ave | $775K | More Details
A rare three bedroom townhome in Holiday. The existing lease could be a challenge to resolve, but sounds negotiable. No interior pics, despite the promise of a rooftop deck. Definitely worth a look.

428 Bison Dr | $695K | More Details
Here’s your mountain living dream, with stellar views and attractive design, with an easy drive to Boulder proper. It backs to Walker Ranch open space. No garage but then again, it has ~35 acres. I suspect you could add one.

2882 Sundown Ln 304 | $435K | More Details
Gold Run has treated our investors very well over the years. The best units like this one are on the top floor, have vaulted ceilings and elevator access. It's a good thing the complex is also in the process of being repainted. 
3240 Iris Ave 312 | $400K | More Details
Another investment opportunity, this time a rare 3 bedroom end-unit, facing south. Let's be frank.  Remington Post has poor curb appeal and rundown interiors, but units here have made for great cash flow investments even before Google moved in. This shouldn’t last long.


1316 Snowberry Ln 5-103 | $460K | More Details
Markel Homes is unleashing their inventory. Lots of brand new, turn-key options to choose from including attached and detached properties.  Don't go the sales office alone. Call us for a guided tour of available units and a comprehensive analysis of past sales.


8712 Portico Ln | $1.64MM | More Details
Portico is an enclave of high-end homes, located along the best cycling routes in the farmland that separates Boulder and Longmont. This substantial estate built in 2007 sits on nearly an acre and features traditional finishes and classic design. Did I mention the four car garage?

329 5th Ave | $589K | More Details
Historic, functional, and in a great location in Old Town. Wrap around porch, corner lot. My guess is the next owner will clean up the old wall paper and give it a fresh touch. Drool worthy.
