March home sales signaled a robust and active home buying season ahead for Boulder County.

“The Boulder-area market rocketed forward in March with strong sales that improved significantly,” says Ken Hotard, senior vice president of public affairs for the Boulder Area Realtor® Association.

Following modest positive movement in February, housing surged forward in March, according to March sales statistics. Boulder Valley buyers showed up strong, undeterred by a market pattern of low inventory and rising prices. This pattern has characterized the countywide housing market for several years running.

Single-family home sales in the Boulder-area jumped 43.3 percent in March compared to February 2018 – 344 units sold vs. 240. Condominium and

As real estate markets and financing markets change, there are opportunities to consider in order to build real estate equity in your home. One of those is the Home Equity Line of Credit commonly known as HELOC. During the recession, many banks called in their HELOCs. As the real estate market has improved, the HELOC is emerging as a useful financial planning tool.

Using a HELOC to build equity in your home isn’t for everybody. It takes discipline, structure, and a determined goal. In this case, let’s say your goal is to get your home paid off as soon as possible.

Let’s start with the question, “What is a HELOC?” A HELOC is a simple interest, open-ended line of credit secured by your home. You only pay interest on the balance remaining at the

With Boulder's walking, biking and hiking trails, it’s no surprise the city made the SmartAsset top 10 list of places for physical fitness.

But here’s what is surprising: as fitness and healthy-eating oriented as Boulder's culture is, the city ranked only No. 10 on SmartAsset’s fourth annual study of the most fitness-friendly places in America.

According to the study, nine other cities are more fitness-friendly than this biking-hiking-running-skiing-walking-climbing loving town.

SmartAsset describes fitness-friendly cities as those that tend to be walkable, offer few fast food eateries and plenty of healthier eating restaurants, and present plenty of places to workout in. Having ample workout facilities overcomes crowded or far away gyms that

The scenario goes like this. One day you write a contract on a home knowing you can afford it at a certain interest rate. Then while you are waiting to close, the interest rate

The real estate market in Boulder County is red hot, which makes maintaining your mortgage approval a must if you're shopping for a home.

“It can be a lot of work to get your mortgage approved. Once it is approved, it is important not to make any major financial changes until you sign your final disclosure and the loan is closed,” says Jessica Shanahan, loan officer with Premier Lending.

To keep your mortgage approval, you need to know the financial moves not to make.   

Your mortgage approval is primarily based on documenting your income and assets, your equity stake or down payment, your credit history and the cash you'll have left over after the deal is done, according to Tuttle’s Real Estate Update.

After your mortgage is approved,
