In Colorado, real estate brokers are not licensed to practice law and/or give legal advice. Yet licensed brokers can prepare contracts to buy and sell houses as a daily course of business. Colorado brokers are allowed to render services to real estate clients to a greater degree than in many states. This allowance dates back to the infamous (at least in the Colorado real estate industry) Conway-Bogue case. The bottom line of the decision was that brokers were allowed to work with contracts in real estate transactions without an attorney only if they filled in the blanks of standard and approved forms.

If there is one constant in Boulder Valley, it's a strong real estate market. October's sales statistics show 2018 is on track to finish strong. This is despite that month-to-month, those statistics sometimes show significant fluctuation.

Take September and October 2018. When compared to October, September's data is like Colorado weather: If you don’t like the statistics one month, wait a month, they are likely to change.

September's single-family sales dropped 20 percent, then recovered to gain 8.7 percent in October with 362 homes sold vs. September’s 333. Despite the short-term fluctuation, year-to-date sales are holding steady through October, reaching just one unit short of the same volume as last year – 3,880 vs. 3,881.

Nearly half of the companies listed on Outside Magazine’s 2018 50 Best Places to Work call Colorado home – 23 to be exact. And 65 percent of the Colorado businesses are in the Boulder-Denver metro area – 15 in total – leading with No. 3 ranked Whipplewood CPAs in Littleton.= 

Outside Magazine’s editorial staff says health-oriented perks matter and adds, “It's a commitment to fun and supportive work environments that really make these companies stand apart.”

The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) conference every November provides a bounty of information about the real estate market nationwide. In Boulder, we often think our real estate issues are unique, but at this conference, we find that many communities across the nation are facing the same challenges as we are. A key difficulty is the housing shortage, a common problem across the country in most major metro areas, just as we are experiencing it here in Colorado and Boulder.

This year, I was able to see a presentation by Dr. Lisa Sturtevant, president and founder of Lisa Sturtevant and Associates. Dr. Sturtevant is an expert on the housing shortage issue as she has been involved in research and analysis on local economic, demographic, and
