The Kearney Report – Third Quarter 2014

Kearney Realty report Boulder Real Estate StatisticsWe have just completed The Kearney Report for the 3rd quarter. The Kearney Report is a comprehensive, quarterly presentation of the real estate statistics in Boulder County. We then break it down into smaller areas so that we can identify differences within the Boulder area real estate market.

Through the first three quarters, total sales in Boulder County are down 6% from last year but up 6% from 2012. However, the sales volume is down just 2% YTD. This means that the average price for each home sold has increased. This increase has come in two forms. First, the median home price increased by 8% from the third quarter of 2013 and secondly, more high priced homes have sold this year. Last year 24% of all sales in Boulder County sold for $500,000 or more. This year it’s 29% above that threshold. Read more →
