RE/MAX of Boulder News

In the Boulder-area market, possession of a home most commonly happens upon delivery of the deed.  In other words, the home buyer hands over the money, the seller hands over the keys, and then the home buyer moves in. This is really the cleanest way for a closing to happen. There is no question who owns the home when ownership is transferred. The home is usually clean and empty for the home buyer’s walk through prior to closing. Yet in this method of possession, the seller is at the greatest disadvantage if they have moved out and the home buyer fails to come to closing. 

In some markets, it is common for the home buyer and seller to negotiate possession three days after closing. This method of possession eliminates the seller’s risk in the event

Nestled just below the crest of Sugarloaf Mountain sits a home that will rock your soul.  

From the moment you enter, you feel serenity. Maybe it's the unmatched southeastern Flatirons view that dips gracefully down the canyon and into Boulder Valley. Or it could be the home's open lines and passive energy use that whisper "relax."

The home's design is the culmination of owner Kurt Smith's quest for a sustainable, energy efficient mountain dwelling in one of the most beautiful spots in Boulder County. And the home delivers all, without sacrificing style, creature comforts, or easy access

Many baby boomers never bought a home in their younger years and some baby boomers lost their home in the 2007 to 2012 recession. Baby boomers were born between 1944 and 1964, making them between 55 and 75 years old this year. In the U.S., there are currently 76 million baby boomers. Those baby boomers are now in their retirement years and are asking, “Am I too old to buy a home?”

There are few things we become too old to do, like playing in the NFL, but when it comes to buying a home you are never too old. In fact, the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) says that about 25% of first-time homebuyers are over 52 years of age.

One myth that prevents seniors from buying in later years is that they think they are too old to get a mortgage.

This May Day, one thing every property owner in Boulder County can depend on is receiving is a newly assessed property value. Since 2019 is an odd numbered year, state statute requires that every property in Boulder County be evaluated for “assessed value”. Notices of assessed value will go out countywide on May 1, 2019.  The new assessed value is based on past real estate market sales of comparable properties from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2018.  If there isn’t enough information in that time frame, the assessor is allowed to go back five years to collect sales data. The assessor then uses a “time trending” appreciation rate by area to adjust values on the basis of when the sale occurred within the allowable time frame.

Colorado ranked as the No. 5 most innovative state in the U.S. and the achievement comes with perks.

For example, innovation is a principal driver of U.S. economic growth, reports WalletHub, which points toward good news for Colorado’s economic outlook.

“In 2019, the U.S. will spend an estimated $581 billion on research and development — more than any other country in the world and about 25 percent of the world’s total — helping the nation rank No. 6 on the Global Innovation Index,” writes WalletHub in its recently released study of Least & Most Innovative States.

The study compared 50 states and the District of Columbia across 24 indicators of innovation-friendliness, ranging from share of STEM professionals to tech-company density.
