Summer Is Here - for Buyers [Boulder Fresh Listings]


Imagine living in a cinematic mountain retreat, with jaw dropping views, surrounded by acres and acres of privacy. You'll find it, as well as other worthy options in this week's fresh listings.  

It's now peak season. Nearly 200 listings hit the market last week in Boulder.  Only 8 made the cut. 

Market update: Last month, inventory was up +31% YoY for detached single family houses and +29% for attached dwellings in the City of Boulder. In Boulder County, inventory was +19% for single family homes and +46% town homes and condos. When it comes to selection, this is the best year for buyers in nearly a decade. We'll have a full market update shortly. 

Note: Notable sales are now in their own post. You can view last week's HERE.

Fresh Listings


2727 Folsom Street #303| $300K | Pics and Details
Trout Farm is one of the few affordable, low student density options in central Boulder. The late 90's design is a bit smaller on square footage but most units have ample storage compared to newer options. This 1 bedroom, 1 bath is well priced and will likely be off the market quickly.

3289 Cripple Creek Trail 10C | $480K | Pics and Details
Want a low-maintenance condo or town home with immediate access to South Boulder's spectacular open space? There are few options outside of Shanahan Ridge. The development was built in the late 70's with typical energy efficiency standards of the day. This unit has an updated kitchen and retains the wood stove (which many owners have removed).

5150 Euclid Ave| $995K | Pics and Details
We visited this architecturally interesting and well located home over the weekend. A beautiful mid-century design, it's still quite appealing today. The house features three bedrooms, two baths, and a reasonable ~1850 F. SQFT. Lot size is generous with +14,000 SF (and feels larger). 

Due diligence:100 year flood. If your Realtor doesn't mention the costs associated with properties in the flood plain, including future permitting, lower appreciation, and longer time on market  - get a better Realtor. It's not just the cost of flood insurance.

1946 Beacon Ct | $1.15M | Pics and Details
San Francisco style homes on the west side of Pearl are hidden gems. Known as Beacon Square, they were mostly constructed in the late 1970's and early 1980's. One sold earlier this year - 1986 Beacon Ct., which closed at $1.74MM ($832/SF) in January. 1946 Beacon Ct. is smaller with two bedrooms, two baths, and just over 1,700 SQFT. If this is what you are seeking, sorry, it's too late. It was listed and placed under contract immediately, illustrating the importance of working with a broker who tracks coming soon and privately marketed listings. The asking price was $1.15MM ($662/SF), but it should close higher. Buyers typically pay a premium to secure a property pre-MLS.

3122 10th St | $1.33M | Pics and Details
In a decent location in Newlands, this 4 bedroom, 2 bath is a basic 1950's ranch with a '02-'03 Melton second story addition. The layout is interesting and appears functional with tall ceilings, long hallways, and a large deck. Some of the finishes are ready for a refresh (kitchen tile) but overall it's a tidy package.

1485 Linden Ave | $1.4M | Pics and Details
remodeled bi-level, so extensively reworked that it might as well be a brand new house. We took our clients to see it and were impressed at the sense of spaciousness created by the ultra tall ceilings on the main level. The designer finishes and well executed indoor/outdoor transitions went a long way. The builder was still putting down the gravel on the driveway when it went under contract. What do we always say? Ya snooze, ya lose. 

Due diligence: The concrete form walls on the exterior landscaping and outdoor living spaces are aesthetically pleasing but also lock the design in place. If the new owner wants to modify the landscaping, they will need heavy duty equipment to deconstruct and reconfigure the location of the walls.

1236 Ridge Rd | $1.64M | Pics and Details
Situated on 52 acres and bordered by National Forest, this five bedroom, five bath estate features exceptional views, classic post and beam construction, and traditional mountain home finishes. By any reasonable measure, the seller scored a deal when they acquired this stunning property in 4Q17 for only $1.16MM (+15% below asking). It's now offered at $1.64MM. 

Due diligence: Winter access and fire defense.
