Boulder County housing sales in May rolled strong once again, demonstrated by sharp growth in the single-family home market and solid performance for attached dwellings.

“Gains in single-family home sales topped 40 percent – a really strong increase that was backed by inventory growth,” says Ken Hotard, senior vice president of public affairs for the Boulder Area Realtor® Association.

In fact, all categories of single-family homes surged, according to May 2018 statistics. Sales of single-family homes grew 41.2 percent in May 2018 compared to April, with 487 homes sold vs. 345. Year-to-date single-family home sales increased 5.6 percent year-to-date through May 2018 compared to the prior year – 1,708 vs. 1,618. And inventory countywide increased

Fitbit captures loads of personal fitness data based on 10 million users nationwide.

With so many people using Fitbit to track personal fitness nationwide, it’s only ‘fitting’ for Fitbit to analyze data and output results.

And they did. Based on Fitbit’s analysis of 2017 data, Fitbit users in Boulder ranked at the very top for most active minutes with an average of 21.8 minutes per day. Boulder was followed by New York, NY; Duluth, MN; Bellingham, WA; and Boston, PA, in the two through five slots for most active minutes.

Boulder also claimed the No. 4 spot for Overall Fittest City in America, a ranking based on average rates for duration of sleep, “reminders to move” goals met, daily steps, daily active minutes, and resting heart rate.

Summer afternoons in Colorado are often hit with wild weather, and this week was no exception. The Boulder/Louisville area was pounded by a severe hail storm with golf ball and larger-sized hail wreaking havoc on buildings, houses, cars, trees, and gardens.

I stopped by Foothills Insurance next door to my office after the storm. It was certainly bustling! Whenever a hail storm comes ripping through the area, the phone starts ringing in a frenzy. Out of curiosity I asked if this was one of the biggest storms. They laughed and reminded me of the Colorado Mills Shopping Center storm when the roof was pounded, businesses flooded, and nearly every car in the parking lot was damaged. Nonetheless, while driving through central Boulder and Louisville, I

Duane Duggan is an award-winning Realtor and author of the book, “Realtor for Life.”

As a result, Boulder County implemented SepticSmart Regulations on September 1, 2008 in order to protect our health and environment. 

Here are six important facts every home buyer of a house with a septic system should know:

  1. SepticSmart requires that a septic system be permitted, approved, and inspected before the sale of a home. Either the existing owner or the buyer will need to make any repairs that are required to bring the system to compliance.

Boulder County excels at attracting talented and skilled workers. But change is in the air, says futurist Josh Davies, CEO at The Center for Work Ethic Development and keynote speaker at the recent Boulder Economic Summit 2018: The Workforce of the Future.

Statistics presented by futurist Davies suggest that if the last decade rocked with rapid change on the job-front, hang on to your smartphone – the future promises to be a rocket-ride.

And, the future starts now. 

Today, Boulder County employers are going head-to-head with the rest of the world. Local businesses compete globally for highly skilled workers integral to business success, yet these workers are too few in number to fill the demand. If corrective steps aren’t taken, the worker

Based on the date of a real estate closing, property taxes should be fairly divided between the buyer and seller so that each party pays for the taxes during the time in which they own the property. It seems as if these property tax prorations are very simple -- just prorate to the day of closing. Turns out, it can be a bit more complicated than that. 

The first issue is that property taxes are paid in arrears, after the year has gone by. In other words, the amount of the current year’s taxes isn’t known until the following year, nor are they due and payable until the following year. Since the seller was in possession of the property during part of the current year, the seller owes the buyer a prorated amount of the taxes for the time that has
