Boulder Luxury 2011

Posted by Michael Hughes-Fuller Sothebys International Realty

After my buyer clients wrung their hands about the nation’s bad economy, high unemployment rates, the fragile economic recovery, and other catasrophic economic  stories they had seen on CNBC, Fox and CNN or read in this morning’s paper;  I replied with a simple question: “Ok, but how is your personal economy doing?”  After a puzzling look from my clients, I explained that while the nation’s economy is important, it’s not nearly as relevant to them as their own personal circumstances when it comes to buying or selling a home.

In most cases my buyers have solid jobs with excellent incomes, strong savings and investments. With Boulder Luxury Real Estate and home prices bouncing on the bottom in a narrow margin up and down  2%, and mortgage rates near record lows, they were in my opinion in a fantastic position to buy and afford the home of their dreams – most likely in a better position than they will be in the future when interest rates rise and home prices rebound.

Assuming your “personal economy” is reasonably good, it may be time to swallow your fears and take advantage of this window of opportunity and buy a home. Call me today and let’s see if we’re a fit.

  • Boulder—Sales continue to increase with October 2010 showing a 38% increase in over $1 Million sales in Boulder County.
  • The Boulder real estate market continues to be strong.
  • Interest rates while starting to inch up are still pretty low.

Boulder Luxury Real Estate Market Rallys

Posted by Michael Hughes-Sotheby’s International Realty-Boulder, CO

Buyers snapped up 125 luxury homes in the Boulder area from November 30th 2009 to November 30th 2010 priced at $1 million or more, a better than 21% increase from a year ago (November 2008-November 30th 2009). That is a discernible improvement from a year ago when the luxury market dipped by more than 50 percent. These were all single family homes in the Boulder Luxury Real Estate market in Boulder County. Whether it is a Pied-De-Terre or your family home, it shows that buyers are feeling more confident. When they look at their portfolio they are no longer running for cover. These buyers couldn’t care less about a buyer tax credit. They do care about getting value and feel more relaxed knowing that there is a prosperous and robust luxury housing market in Boulder County.

Realtors specializing in the high Boulder Luxury Real Estate market say more prosperous buyers are taking advantage of sellers eager to slash prices. In addition  near historic low interest rates are abundant. Now don’t expect those interest rates to stay as low as they are. They are already starting to feel upward pressure. Even if they can afford to pay cash, many high-end buyers will put debt on a house in order to shelter money and seek out higher returns with their liquid capital elsewhere.
