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

By all general appearances, 2017 seems to be shaping up as another good year for those who sold homes, however, it may be brightening for buyers as well.  According to the Colorado Association of REALTORS® (CAR), "Colorado’s low inventory has caused frustration and a limitation on housing market growth. Luckily, statistics show a major increase for residential building in areas across Colorado."

Let's take a look at recent statistics for some of the East Boulder County towns we follow and see what has been happening since the selling season has slowed down. We typically see a slow down in inventory available and buyers who are serious after Labor Day. Now that we have almost a full year of data under our

Working in real estate I see a few things that I may otherwise never learn about. The latest learning experience? Orangeburg sewer pipes. These ancient sewer pipes, installed as long ago as the 1860s, were fabricated from pressed wood pulp, which gives these types of pipes a little more integrity than that of laminated paper towel rolls. And we're seeing them in Old Town Louisville!

According to Express Sewer and Drain, ”Orangeburg pipe was made with steam generators to dry the fibers with exhaust steam before the pitch sealed the layers of conduit. The pipes were designed with a diameter that measured anywhere from 2 to 18 inches…Since the pipes were lightweight, though brittle, they were very popular in
