Every August, in college towns across America, college students start to return for the fall semester. This always creates a frenzy of real estate activity. The rental market is usually pretty tight in any college town. Because of that, many families consider purchasing a home for their college student to live in while attending school. 

This can prove to be a worthwhile investment financially as well as an excellent learning experience for the student. In Boulder, if a parent bought a condo in the 1980s and held on to it for four years, they most likely would have sold it for about what they paid for it. If a parent bought a condo in the 2012 and sold it in four years they most likely would have made enough profit to pay for their child’s in-state

Daily Camera At Home article by Realtor Laurie Kaufman, RE/MAX of Boulder

Here’s a “creature comfort” that keeps your home and the family pup clean while adding that something extra home buyers love: a dog wash. Having a dog wash in your home is becoming as common place as a powder room or upstairs laundry.

Homebuyers find value in features that make life easier. Any dog guardian knows, dogs love to get dirty on their daily hike or swim. My dog Kali loves rolling in “I don’t want to know what” when we are out at Cottonwood Trail and Coot Lake (the stinkier the better). When it comes to washing Kali, she whines and squirms like a two-year-old child during a temper tantrum when I wash her with ice cold water from the garden hose.

In 2000, Colorado voters approved a property tax exemption for qualified seniors (also known as the Senior Homestead Exemption) as a state constitutional amendment. The Colorado legislature makes a determination each year to see if the state budget allows for this discounted property tax program for seniors. Since 2000, there have only been a few years when the program was suspended due to budget shortfalls. 

The property tax exemption does not happen automatically for eligible seniors. First of all, a senior needs to know about the program, then must apply for it through their county assessor’s website. The requirements for eligibility are quite simple: 

  1.      The senior must be 65 years old by January 1 of the year of the application.

    As Realtors, we are very fortunate that by pooling together our resources through the National Association of Realtors (NAR), we are able to enlist a chief economist. NAR’s Chief Economist Dr. Lawrence Yun is as close to a crystal ball we Realtors have for predicting the future. As senior vice president of the research department at NAR, he has very qualified staff supporting his analysis and forecasting. They publish extensively on a wide range of topics and research including market data, housing statistics, commercial research, consumer opinion, land markets, and financing. I was lucky enough to see Dr. Yun’s economic and real estate outlook presentation at a recent conference and also had the opportunity to chat with him. Here’s my synopsis of
