Fall Preleasing Boulder Colorado

Boulder Home Prices

Boulder Colorado’s improving economy, mountain landscapes, and over 300 days of sunshine continue to attract home buyers and renters. In the year ending June 2013, Boulder home prices have risen by 8.5 percent to $454,600, according to Zillow. This amount consists of the median estimated value of all properties in the city, including those that are on sale and those not on the market.

  • The median list price is $519,000, up 5.2 percent. The median sale price is $457,900, up 6.7 percent.
  • East Chautauqua boasts the highest home values of $799.500, up 7 percent. The greatest increase goes to University Hill at 14.8 percent to $549,600.
  • The least expensive values are in Keewaydin at $209,800. The lowest increase is the 1.8 percent of East Aurora to $319,900.
  • The median monthly rent in Boulder runs $1,600, up 6 percent from a year ago. The increasing price is forcing many people to put their money into a home rather than spend it on rent. Just under 50 percent of residents are homeowners, compared to over 66 percent for the United States.

About 62 percent of the homes in Boulder consist of single-family homes.

  • Over 22 percent of homes consist of 1,000 square feet or less. Over 20 percent are between 1,000 and 1,400 sq. ft. and almost 19 percent are between 1,800 and 2,300 square feet.
  • Over 40 percent of homes were built from 1960 to 1979, with 27 percent from 1980 to 1999 and almost 14 percent from 1940 to 1959. Only 9 percent of the homes were constructed in the 21st century.
  • The median home size runs 1,598 square feet, with the average one being built in 1971. Property taxes run $2,910 per year.

Mapleton Hill Boulder Colorado | Housing Helpers Neighborhood Spotlight

In light of the upcoming Historic Homes for the Holidays tour on December 8th and 9th, this post will highlight one of Boulder’s best and brightest neighborhoods- Mapleton Hill. Beyond their headlining role in Historic Boulder’s upcoming tour, this area has a lot to offer renters and owners alike.

The Mapleton Hill area is located between Alpine and Pearl to the north and south, Broadway to the east, and 4th Street to the west. The historical district of Mapleton Hill was established in 1882 and christened with the name thanks to the 200 cottonwood and silver maple trees planted throughout the 1800s to attract residents to the neighborhood.

According to WalkScore.com, the area scores an 83, making it the 3rd highest ranked neighborhood for walkability in the Boulder area. A score this high means that most errands can be easily completed on foot. This pedestrian-friendly area offers grocery shopping, nightlife, boutiques, cultural events, as well as enough open space to enjoy a picnic or toss a Frisbee with your dog.

Mapleton Hill’s residential architecture gives it its sparkle and charm. Beyond the Victorian homes aged with beauty, you can also find townhomes in San Francisco style, Colonial revival styles and much more- many of these backed by a strong sense of eco-consciousness among the residents. The 2,730 member community is a diverse blend of long-term residents, new homeowners and renters, and young families -largely attracted by the acclaimed International Baccalaureate Program at Whittier Elementary.

Thanks to its proximity to the Pearl Street Mall amenities and accessible open spaces, it is labeled as Boulder’s most prestigious neighborhood. All in all, this relaxed neighborhood pulsates with life and is truly the heart of Boulder. In fact, Housing Helpers currently has a great rental property in this area. We at Housing Helpers encourage you to go out and explore this neighborhood and let us know what your favorite spots are!
