Just when everyone thought the real estate market was settling down, a Lakewood Condo we listed and began marketing went under contract in record time.
Some agents have made bold statements when marketing homes, saying things such as “open house tomorrow, seller reviewing all offers monday”… and then: Monday comes and goes and unlike last spring, the home is still available for sale and not under contract on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday…
However, what I am still seeing is homes selling quickly, in all price ranges, and all over the Boulder/Denver area if they are prepared well, priced right, and marketed properly.
Fusion-io, the Salt Lake City – based flash drive maker was recently acquired by SanDisk Corp, another flash drive maker for over $1 billion recently.
I’ve driven by a building locally with the Fusion-io logo on it and often wondered about the details on what was cooking over there, but not until this acquisition made the news did it get more of my attention.
While the Fusion-io stocks are no longer trading on Nasdaq, it hopefully means good things for Fusion-io owners and workers who have facilities in two locations in Boulder county.
We started off with low inventory, and hence with fewer than normal homes for sale, it was common to see multiple offers on homes for sale all over the city.
As we moved from spring into summer, the number of homes for sale increased to about 20% over the same time last year, and this has slowed the price increases a bit, but we’re still seeing most homes in Boulder selling rather quickly if they’re priced right and presented well.

What’s especially cool about this though is many of these areas are both. One of the paths I often take going to and from my daily stops as a Realtor is land that’s still used as farm and ranch by a local family who’s been here for several generations.
I stop occasionally to pick up farm-fresh eggs along the way when they’re available, and so in addition to the local farm-to-table restaurants, you can find your own supplies all over the county.
