Boulder Real Estate Market Summary

This Boulder real estate market summary covers single family homes sold in the last week (12/1/7 through 12/7/7 inclusive).

We saw 11 homes sold with an average price of $694.317.

Considering that the average price in Boulder recently is just over $500,000, this looks like some pretty good activity and makes it look like prices are holding reasonably well for single family homes in the City of Boulder.

The high price was $1,330,000 and the low price for sold homes last week was $317,500. Here’s a summary of the two ends of the spectrum for this week.

34th-st.jpgThe home at 965 34th in the Aurora Terrace subdivision (a few blocks N/E of 30th & Baseline), came up for sale in early August with a price of about $340,000 and with a few price reductions, found the market price in about 90 days at $317,500.

lehigh.jpgThe home at 1885 Lehigh in the Rolling Hills 1 subdivision (at the S/W edge of town in what generally many people think of as the Table Mesa area), came up for sale in early september with a price of $1,495,000. Interestingly, the price was reduced about $100,000 after about 45 days, then raised a day later, then lowered to $1,425,000 and then the seller received a contract which was successfully negotiated to a final sale price of $1,330,00. It took about 90 days to sell.

At the end of the third quarter of 2007, there were 768 single family homes sold in Boulder YTD. That’s a 1% drop as compared to end of third quarter YTD 2006. However, the total dollar value of homes sold for the same period is over $507,000,000 and when compared with the same period in 2006 this is about a 2% increase. The median price is at $564,000 which is an increase of 3% over the same period last year.

So it looks like we’re still seeing a trend of slightly fewer number of homes sold but the prices are increasing.

We’ll have 4th quarter stats and year end data sometime in January.
