In our final LRA blog post of 2018, I would like to thank those who have continued to support us since our humble beginnings in 2015 and to recap LRA's activities in and around our beloved town of Louisville, Colorado.  First and foremost, we were incredibly honored to be awarded Small Business of 2017 by the Louisville Chamber of Commerce and are excited for what lies ahead. Here are some of the reasons we remain devoted to our community of Louisville and the greater Boulder area...

We have had the pleasure of helping dozens of wonderful new and repeat clients, who run the spectrum of real estate transactions. This includes selling a beautiful, custom home in Old Town Louisville, to helping a client

It has been quite awhile since I have reported any signs of a cooling effect in Boulder County, but the numbers appear to be bearing that out. According to Altos Research, home prices in our market have been trending downward quite significantly in recent weeks, as more homes are available and demand is declining.  We might expect this trend to continue, especially if the Market Action Index falls into the Buyer’s zone. While we do keep our eye on the area we serve in East Boulder County, this week's blog focuses on the movement we are seeing in our hometown, Louisville. The statistic we like to keep an eagle eye is on the number of listings that have reduced their prices: ready for it? Fifty-seven percent

I don't mean to sound repetitive but in our seasonal outlook here, Louisville remains a hot seller's market, with very little inventory on hand for eager buyers. As the table below shows, the median list price increased from $699,000 in May 2018 to a whopping $739,000 in early August. Louisville's inventory increased a little as the spring months transitioned to summer, and currently sits at 55 homes, which is actually a decent increase from 43 homes in May. "Days on Market" (DOM) has remained stable at 60 days in early August, which includes time to close. However, a big move this summer has been that 45% of sellers were offering price reductions as of early August, up from 28% in early May 2018, and way

Louisville Realty Associates is proud to announce our repeat partnership with A Precious Child to host a "Fill A Backpack Drive" to collect backpacks and school supplies for Colorado kids in need.  Our drive runs through July 20, 2018 and needs your help!

There are more than 180,000 Colorado children living in poverty. Children living in poverty often lack the basic essentials critical to academic achievement. Please help us collect the items needed for school kids in need including: backpacks, large erasers, glue sticks, bottled glue, scissors, pens, crayons, markers, colored pencils, pencils, loose leaf paper, spiral notebooks and composition notebooks. For a full school supply list visit here.

Louisville, Colorado remains a hot seller's market, with very little inventory on hand for eager buyers who want in. The median list price of a single family home jumped from $625,000 in December 2017 to a whopping $699,000 in early May this year. Louisville's inventory did not change much from the dead of winter to early spring and currently sits at 43 homes for sale, which is actually only a slight increase from 39 homes in December 2017. 

Some of the metrics we pay attention to include "Days on Market" (DOM), which for Louisville decreased greatly from 86 days in December 2017 to 59 days in early May 2018, which includes time to close the transaction, so it is not a true reflection of how long a home

It is about this time of year that Louisville really starts to wake up. The outdoor seating on Main Street is open filled with residents and visitors soaking in the Colorado sun. The colorful and fragrant flower boxes remind us spring has arrived. At LRA, our community events may be smaller scale than some other local businesses, but we design our events to be casual and inviting. We hope you will attend our May Art Walk coming up this week!

Thanks to our state's rich and colorful history of ranching, farming and mining, coupled with a mild climate and burning desire to preserve our Colorado history, we are flush with older, well kept homes. In today's real estate market, many home buyers find these homes quite desirable.  One does not have to look too far from LRA's own office in Old Town Louisville to see the charm of miner's cabins, some which date as far back at the 1890s.  

Some of these vintage homes have been elegantly remodeled and some still appear to have much of their original home in tact. When we preview older homes in Old Town Louisville, Superior, Lafayette or Boulder, we often notice that such homes sell for 25% to 50%

Colorado has become a destination for lovers of great beer and the great outdoors. If you’re planning a trip to the Centennial State, you might find yourself caught off guard by views of the Rocky Mountains from your hotel window (and more than a few friendly faces as you step out into the street). Shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater, skiing the slopes, hiking the Rockies, cheering on your favorite Colorado teams—we’d be surprised if the thought of moving to Colorado hadn’t crossed your mind at all. But which city should you choose? And how do you keep that small-town feel? 

Before you start comparing pro’s and con’s, take a look at Louisville, a town nestled in the Denver-Boulder corridor. Just 20 minutes from Boulder’s

In my final LRA blog post of 2017, I would like to thank those who have helped us get established in our first three years and also to recap LRA's activities in and around our beloved town of Louisville, Colorado.

We have met and worked with dozens of wonderful clients, who run the spectrum from selling a stunning Chautauqua home to a Rock Creek family ready to downsize from the only home they have ever known and move to the mountains.  We have represented a family who fell in love with a charming cottage in Old Town Louisville, we have helped soon-to-be retirees navigate the new construction experience, and of course, we enjoy guiding young couples through the first time home buyers experience. We do our
