Lafayette, Colorado appears to be on the verge of being the next boom town in the front-range area.
Lots of new restaurants, shops, and an influx of new residents who are attracted to this small-town lifestyle and proximity to the mountains, Boulder Valley schools, and the lifestyle that attracts kudos to towns like Boulder and Louisville Colorado keeps the City of Lafayette rockin’.

Call, text, or email me today!… I’d seriously enjoy having the opportunity to talk to you about your plans if you’re moving, or if you know someone who is considering a move, and needs some straight answers.
The plan seems to be two-fold: new living units, and a public center for education and arts.
In June of 2013 Frasier Meadows was noted in an article in Where to Retire as a key consideration due to the walkability score of Boulder, Colorado.
Now we’ll see over 70 new apartments as well as a health and wellness center.
Even though the city of Boulder’s charter includes a building height cap of 55 feet, and there’s a proposed ordinance to limit heights to 38 feet in the downtown area, and only 35 feet in other areas of the city, Frasier Meadows is the one development currently exempt from the ordinance.
Over the last couple of months we have continued to see a dilemma for buyers: there’s virtually no inventory (homes for sale), and we are back into a market with multiple offers on most listings (homes for sale) within a day or two.
Sure, there are outliers that skew the data because sellers are ambitious and over price. Look at the charts which show average price / sq ft. You’ll see single family homes up over 40% in the last year and attached (condos/town homes) up over 30% in the last year.
Those homes sit on the market and misalign the averages, and yet the simple truth is that buyers and their agents continue to be frustrated by the current market conditions.
It’s time for sellers to get their home on the market if they’re thinking they might like to sell. In my latest market meeting with a room full of busy Realtors, the common thread in the conversation was that we have many buyers, and practically nothing left to show and help them buy.
It’s clearly time for some new strategies. In the meantime, here are the numbers over the last nine months.
It’s one of several national laboratories which employ hundreds of Boulder locals thanks to the City of Boulder donating land in the area decades ago to the federal government.
Along with that, you can also enjoy easy parking, a wonderful facility with interactive science displays for kids of all ages, and restrooms…which can come in very handy after spending some time on the trail!
