Average Negotiation, Days to Offer & Other Random Facts

If you are looking for the entire statistical overview of the Boulder real estate market in 2016 check out this comprehensive post and then this one about sales by price range. After working on those year end reviews articles I realized that I had some random charts that may be of interest.  These include DTO (Days To Offer); Average Negotiation; and Sales by Area throughout Boulder County. Both Days on Market (DOM) and Days to Offer (DTO) are presented in the chart above.  I like DTO better because it gives a more reliable read of the strength o of the market.  Days To Offer tells how long it took for an average listing (in this case all residential properties in Boulder County) to go under contract. In 2016 it took on average just 30 days to go under contract. This was one day longer than a year ago but less than half as long as the 15 year average of 66 days.  We have been blessed with lots of buyer demand. The graph above takes a bit of explanation.  Each column represents a quarter except for the one on the far right which represents 2016 as a whole.  The graph is measuring the relationship between sales price and listing price.  The blue section represents those properties that close below list price (at a discount).  The orange section represents those properties that sell for exactly list price.  The gray section represents those properties that sell for above list price (at a premium).  The data included was both single family and attached homes in Boulder County. Throughout the year the properties... read more

Sales by Price Range Around Boulder County

The median price of residential (including single family and attached dwellings) home sales in Boulder County during 2016 was $450,000. This was up roughly 12.5% for the year.  But this is far from the whole story regarding home prices in Boulder County.  As we break the statistics down into the individual communities throughout the county we start to get a broader sense of what is happening.  The first graph below shows the median single family home prices of each of the local communities since 1997.  Over the last twenty years Boulder has really outpaced the other communities in the area. The comparison for attached dwellings (condos and townhomes) is similar but not quite so differentiated. Another way to look at the prices in different communities is to break down by price range where the sales took place in each community.  First let’s start with the county as a whole. During the most recent quarter 62% of all sales were less than or equal to $500,000.  This percentage has been relatively stable over the past three years (comparing just 4th quarters). However, the lower price range ($0 – $250,000) has decreased 17% and those sales have moved to the right. Boulder is more expensive! This isn’t news.  Just 36% of all sales were $500,000 and below. It’s interesting to look at the more equal dispersion of sales across all price ranges.  Over the last three years the entry level has shrunk by 2/3 and the high end has increased.  The sales mix in Longmont is completely different that Boulder.  91% of sales are $500,000 or below.  82% of sales are between $250,000... read more
