Money Magazine has once again named Louisville Colorado the top ranked place to live in its annual survey of small towns. Their criteria includes, housing, income, employment statistics, education, crime statistics, weather, quality of life measures and cultural opportunities.
Louisville has been the steadiest market in Boulder County over the last decade. Typically, there are not very many homes on the market and because of this scarcity the prices have held steady. The study noted that home prices had remained stable since 2005. Currently in Louisville there are 99 residential properties for sale, 28 of which are under contract. Over the last year 222 properties have sold. This means that there is currently a 5 month supply of homes on the market. In all of Boulder County the percentage of homes that are under contract is 15% as opposed to 28% and the absorption rate is 9.5 months.
