RE/MAX of Boulder News

Colorado's economy continues to expand in 2018, even after signaling a slowdown at the beginning of the year. Job growth was revised upward to 2.4 percent growth for the year, according to the mid-year economic report from the Leeds Business Research Division at the University of Colorado Boulder.

The rebound follows a slowing of employment growth last September to less than 1.9 percent – the lowest level in almost six years. In June 2018, job growth increased 2.8 percent year-over-year.

The increase means about 15,000 more jobs than expected will be added through 2018, bringing the total to 62,000 new jobs by the end of the year.

The state's gross domestic product also rose 4.5 percent year-over-year for first quarter 2018. The increase

What’s one of the most interesting things you’ve done in your life?

Colorado Springs' 80922 zip code is the No. 2 spot hottest zip code in the country – moving up from No. 7 in 2017, according to analysis of 32,000 zip codes by realtor.com®.

The annual analysis of zip codes looks at how long it takes homes to sell and how frequently properties in each zip code are viewed to determine which zip codes are most popular and fastest moving.

Greeley’s 80631 and Broomfield’s 80021 zip codes also ranked in the top 50 hottest, coming in at Nos. 44 and 48 respectively.

High-income millennials helped fuel a 10 percent rise in how fast homes sold in popular areas in 2018. More and more millennials are getting older and buying homes, which realtor.com says is driving demand in smaller, more affordable suburban areas.

What’s one of the most interesting things you’ve done in your life?

I have had the pleasure of traveling all my life. Seeing the unique beauty and awe of lush jungles in Central America, crashing oceans and vibrant markets of Mexico, historic places of Europe, the chatter of Spanish and French, as well as all that America offers is a feast for the senses. Seeing how people in other countries live and think is a mind-expanding experience and we realize how much we are the same underneath it all. Now my young son (pictured above) travels with me too! 

Who inspires you?

My grandmother.

In the Boulder Valley, housing, the economy, and transportation are more inextricably linked than in many places in the U.S.  Here are the facts: Boulder has more than 100,000 jobs, and more than 60,000 people commute daily in and out of Boulder. Thus, the majority of Boulder’s workforce lives outside of Boulder and travels daily on our major transportation arteries.

Since Boulder’s anti-growth sentiments seem not to be going anywhere anytime soon, the condition of our roadways has become increasingly important to our economy in general and to commuters in particular.  The worse the condition of our roads, the longer commutes take and the more money commuters have to spend on

Cooler temperatures and mountain snow are reminders that it’s time to prepare your home for winter. Here are steps to take to get ready for falling leaves and freezing temperatures, as recommended by House Beautiful. 

1. Prepare your gutters

Clean and well-functioning gutters are a must for winter. Now is the time to clear gutters of leaves and debris and replace damaged sections. 

2. Ensure against drafts

Windows are a major source of heat loss in the home. One simple solution is to eliminate drafts with weather stripping. To check for drafts, close the door or window on a strip of paper, and then slide the paper. If it slides easily, it’s time to replace your weather stripping.

3. Disconnect outdoor faucets
