New Home Building May Surge In Boulder County

We may see a resurgence of new homes in Boulder county again as builders prepare to fire up and get going. This is excellent news, and not really a surprise given the trends in the local Boulder county real estate market.

There are several areas, mostly focused in the Lafayette and Longmont areas that we expect to see new homes going up.

With the news reporting nationally that the real estate industry is the leading driver of a potential improvement of the economy, and with local and regional sales up drastically over the last couple of years, both local and national builders are making major land purchases during the last few weeks.

We can expect more than 200 single family homes to be built in two large subdivisions.

Meritage Homes now owns 121 lots in Longmont in the south east area of the city.

The builder based part of its decision to start building in Longmont by looking at the current low inventory of existing homes for sale (it’s at a record low over the last dozen years).

We may see models, and even new homes for sale before the end of the year from Meritage.

In Lafayette, McStain is finishing up the Indian Peaks development with 302 single-family homes in the Indian Peaks South subdivision.

Located at the southwest corner of 95th (sometimes called Hwy 42) and Baseline Road it’s right around the corner from downtown Louisville, CO. (This is just north of the now essentially sold out Steel Ranch neighborhood in Louisville. (I believe there may be less than half of a dozen homes available to purchase at Steel Ranch as of today.

The Indian Peaks South neighborhood includes over 100 acres, with two commercial building sites in addition to the 300+ homes planned and already under construction in the area.

McStain’s first phase is 47 homes, and the second stage is going to be 94 homes and is about to break ground.

I’m glad to see McStain still in the game. It was a rough road back in 2007, 2008 etc. for many builders, and McStain has consistently turned out a quality product at a reasonable price for the market.
