1047 Balsam Ave [Boulder Notable]

BOULDER NOTABLE SALE: 1047 Balsam Ave | $3.0M
Beautiful and nearly new construction, with five bedrooms, six baths, and a two car garage. It’s also in extremely close proximity to Ideal and an easy stroll to downtown. Despite the turn-key nature of this home, it took nearly a month to find a buyer. Listed this past August. Closed for $250K below the asking price, or 7.7% below list in a conventional mortgage acquisition (i.e. not cash). 

Due diligence: The buyer took a big gamble given uncertainties related to the massive Alpine Balsam project directly across the street. Were they advised about the scale of this project, the hassle of living next to major construction, and the potential impacts of higher density? We sure hope so.
