Our very own Duane Duggan sits down with Jessica Shanahan of Premier Lending to discuss the hot topic: How to remove Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). PMI safeguards mortgage lenders against loan defaults when home buyers put less than 20% down. PMI is rolled into a borrower's mortgage payment, but it is possible for borrowers to take steps to reduce or remove their PMI. Can PMI be removed from a property that has only been owned for a year? Does removing PMI work with an FHA loan? Is the process the same for someone who has a conventional loan? Answers to your questions in this informative video below.

The usual story of ever-rising Boulder rents took a new turn this month. Data for August 2018 shows Boulder rents fell slightly by 0.1 percent last month and by 0.1 percent year-over-year, according to the latest report from rental site Apartment List.

That translates into median apartment rent of $1,150 for a one-bedroom and $1,410 for two-bedrooms. But even with the minor dip, Boulder’s median two-bedroom rent is above the national average of $1,180.  

Nationwide rental rates went up about 1.5 percent, which the report found is down from a high of 3.6 percent in 2015.  

Compared to the state and nation, Boulder's rental price growth is below average. The city lags the state average of 0.4 percent rent growth year-over-year.

If you are obtaining a new loan to purchase a property, the mortgage lender will almost always require an appraisal. An appraisal is an independent opinion of the market value of the property. The appraiser is actually hired by the lender, therefore the lender is the client of the appraiser, not the purchaser. The appraisal is done to ensure that the property has enough value to cover the loan amount in the event the borrower defaults and the lender must foreclose. The less the buyer puts down, the more concerned the lender is about the property appraising for the purchase price. A $3,000 low appraisal on an FHA or VA contract, for example, could possibly kill the transaction. However, a $3,000 low appraisal on a 20% conventional loan will rarely kill

Boulder stands tall when compared with much larger metropolitan areas that excel in innovation and entrepreneurship. 

A report produced by the Boulder Economic Council compares Boulder with leading innovation centers including Silicon Valley, San Francisco, Austin, Boston, Seattle, Portland, Denver and Raleigh.  Though these metropolitan areas have a much larger population than Boulder, they were selected as peer communities following input from local focus groups and ranking reviews published by Inc., Forbes, and others.

To get a meaningful comparison, data was normalized for population size and other measures in analysis by CU-Boulder’s Leeds School of Business Research Division.  

And the news is good, according to findings published in
