Red Flag Real Estate

Posted by Michael Hughes   April 17, 2010

I was chatting with a buyer I’m working with the other day and we went to see a property over in Indian Peaks (Lafayette). It had been on the market for an extended time (given the area).  After looking at Google Earth I noticed an empty lot next door to the house, in a neighborhood that has been built out for years.  I remembered seeing a pipeline project in the area a few weeks before. When I arrived I understood why the property had stayed on the market.  There was a newly erected natural gas pipeline router under construction in the lot next door. Sure you could probably put up with it but the resale is where I see the problem. Location, location, location! Maybe not important in the present but for the future; red flags. Sure you may get it for a bargain price and your anxiety or angst won’t peak for several years, just not a great idea for the big picture. I give you the full picture not just part of the picture. If you are going to buy a home in Boulder think thrice; short term, long term and resale. To see my Featured Listings check it out here.

Boulder-Bucking the Trend

Posted by Michael Hughes  April 16, 2010

Colorado is interesting. When the rest of the country’s housing market is crashing, homes here are selling.  When the market is hot in Colorado, the market is quiet elsewhere. 2010 has turned in to one of my best years in real estate ever in 14 years! Read more about the Colorado Market.

Boulder is one of America’s safe havens for mortgage lending in the financial crisis primarily because national mortgage lenders never targeted the area for subprime and “creative” mortgages that created this mess in the first place. Like most other markets, prices have suffered but not to the extreme, and prices are forecast to remain fairly stable through 2010 appreciating at about 2.5-3%. Great news if you are going to buy a home in Boulder or sell a home in Boulder. Check out my Featured Listings all price points. Boulder come live, love and play.
