7010 Olde Stage Rd [Boulder Notable]

7010 Olde Stage Rd | $2.4M

Although a popular cycling route, homes on Olde Stage can be subject to considerable traffic noise. This one sits only about 100’ away from the road, and for that reason alone, we would have advised our clients to not pursue it. Still, the home was generously sized and nicely designed for fifteen years old.  

Due diligence: The home was described as having a “stucco exterior over rigid form for additional insulation.” This is also known as an Exterior Finish Insulation System, or EFIS. If installed correctly and properly maintained, it’s a fantastic product. In many cases, neither of those things are true, which requires expensive correction. It also limits the market for the home, given that many buyers are scared off by EFIS horror stories. Based on many experiences, we now have a protocol for EFIS homes - whether on the buy or sell side of the deal. 

Deal notes: The property was listed for $2.6M, on market for about 30 days, and closed for 7.7% below the asking price.
