Boulder County Real Estate Statistics for August 2016

Quick Real Estate Market Wrap Up The market has slowed – houses are staying on the market longer, average negotiation off of list price was 1.5% in August instead of above full price which has been the case during the spring months, and there are fewer showings taking place.  Sales were down 9% in August from the same month last year and year-to-date sales are down approximately 10%. On the good news front, at the end of the second quarter Boulder County was the #1 area for home appreciation in the nation.   The last two years we have seen good activity in the fall, this year it feels like it won’t be quite as strong.  However, it’s all relative, we still have a vibrant strong market.  Maybe we won’t be #1 for long but we still have a great market and a place where people want to live. Prices are still high but we are seeing more price reductions and fewer multiple offer situations.  A respite for buyers.  Enjoy the slideshow which highlights the trends in Boulder County real estate over the past five years.

Vancouver Adopts a 15% Foreign Buyer Tax – Is Boulder Next?

How Involved Should Government Be In Real Estate Transactions? What just happened in Vancouver In mid July the British Colombia provincial government convened a special session and passed a 15% transfer tax for real estate transactions in the great Vancouver area involving foreign buyers. The tax went into effect on August 2nd.  The average price of a home in Vancouver is over $1 million so the tax inserted mid stream into the transaction was in most cases over $100,000.  There was no grandfather clause and many transactions that were in process didn’t close.  The ripple effect has been severe and sudden. Let’s back up and discuss why the government felt the need to implement this new “out of the blue” tax in such a short time frame.  Over the past year real estate prices have increased by over 30%. Much of this appreciation is due to foreign buyers paying cash for real estate as a safe harbor for money instead of their national banks.  Most of the foreign buyers in the Vancouver area are Chinese.  I talked with a local and he said that he lives in a nice neighborhood and there are quite a few homes that are owned by Chinese citizens and are sitting vacant.  The yards are being maintained but nobody is moving in.  The local government officials were seeing their citizens being priced out of the market and homes sitting vacant. In their mind something had to be done.  And they did it. Since the new transfer tax went into effect on August 2nd the market in the Vancouver area has come to an abrupt... read more
