Hello Friend, Summer is just a few days away and that means it's time to barbecue and relax outside! I love savoring the long evenings and enjoying the summer breeze while having a cold beverage in my hand, don't you? If you've taken advantage of the spring market and are getting ready to move, I share a great article about choosing a moving company below. If you're looking to remodel your home, the Colorado Homes & Lifestyles Magazine has a new article series to help you out. Read the first installment that's about choosing the right contractor for the job. And Longmont and Boulder were awarded $8.3M to put toward creating more affordable housing—check out the details! As always, if you're looking to make the leap and put your house on the market, or you're interested in buying, I'm here to brainstorm with you. The market is still hot right now, and it's a great time to jump in. Call or email me and we can discuss what the best options are for you. Looking forward to hearing from you, Laurie

The recent BUZZ about local Real Estate Statistics of late is how prices have leveled off and are almost at the same point they were a year ago.  As inventory rises, the market normally softens - but does it always?   And if the market is softening, why are there still multiple offer situations on some properties?  The answer is -- Because it depends on the price point.  The lower-priced home inventory is still quite scarce, and multiple offers still occur quite often.  The increase in inventory we have been hearing about is mostly the higher-priced homes, and these are harder to sell (starting at $600K - $1million+, depending on the town).  Be sure to check out the monthly statistics as we enter some changing times. Click here to see May's Top 10 Vital Statistics.
