Happy New Year neighbors! In 2016, a total of 10 homes sold for an average price per square foot of $150. This is slightly higher than last year but is still not as high as our neighbors. Two homes were listed over $1 Million but neither home sold so we’re still unable to break that barrier.  Scroll down for the averages.

Due to the continued strong market in Boulder County, listing agents in Blue Heron are raising home prices significantly. This has  increased the average sale price by $41,000 and the price per square foot by $16. At the same time, the percent of asking price and days on market have remained consistent. However, compared with home sales in Louisville and Lafayette, Blue Heron is getting less per square foot than similar homes. I am entering my 3rd year of membership in the Blue Heron HOA and I believe our community is an amazing neighborhood. Scroll down for the averages.

Our neighborhood continues to be an extremely competitive seller’s market. With interest rates still in the 4% APR range (even for jumbo loans), we have many active buyers searching the limited home inventory. In 2013, 16 homes sold in Blue Heron but in 2014, only 7 homes sold. The average days on market dropped from 106 to an astonishing 62 with those homes collecting an average of 98.4% of asking price.

Happy New Year neighbors!  This year has been proof that the real estate market is recovering. The amount of homes sold in Blue Heron increased from 8 in 2011 to 12 in 2012. While the sellers are still getting an average of 96% of their asking price, the amount they received for each square foot increased from $124 to $128. This increase may seem small but, that works out to be more than $18,000 increase in home sold price, on average per square foot. Scroll down for the averages.
