New Year’s Day: Boulder Real Estate Booming

Boulder real estate continues to be a strong investment as many of us watching the local market can attest to and I’m thinking that 2008 will be one of the best years we’ve had in a long while.

Local economists have been predicting that the Boulder real estate market and local economy and job growth will repeat numbers we saw back in the banner year of 2001.

I’m a realist for certain and I’m a firm believer in finding the positive side of every event. I’m thankful for what I have and the joy I receive every day. This Boulder Realtor is keeping it shiny side up and eyes on the horizon.

I hope that you too will feel joyful and fulfilled in 2008 as much or more than you have in years gone by.

Thoughts for the coming year:

For those of you who over-analyze and suffer from analysis paralysis:

DON’T WAIT…. The time will NEVER be just right.

New Year Superstition:

The 1st of January was a highly significant day in medieval superstitions regarding prosperity, or lack of it, in the year ahead. A flat cake was put on one of the horns of a cow in every farmyard. The farmer and his workers would then sing a song and dance around the cow until the cake was thrown to the ground. If it fell in front of the cow that signified good luck; to fall behind indicated the opposite.

What??!!?? That says all we need to hear about superstition. Hooey.

Anniversaries (British)

1st – The London Credit Exchange Company issued the first traveler’s checks in 1772.

1st – The BBC began broadcasting its first programs in 1927.

1st – Traffic policemen were introduced in Great Britain in 1931.

Quotable Quotes:

Be interesting, be enthusiastic… and don’t talk too much.
Norman Vincent Peale

Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.
Henry Ward Beecher

Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.
Benjamin Disraeli

Well done is better than well said.

If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.
Yogi Berra

Where are you going in 2008? Are you reaching high and far enough? Are you thankful for everything and everyone you have? The glass is not half empty but always half full my friends, if you choose to look carefully enough…

Have a great year. It’ll be the best one yet.
