Credit: Katy Marquardt & USNews.com and CBS4 Denver

The 2022 rankings identified places in America that have the best “combination of jobs, desirability, cost of living, quality of life.” And it apparently helps to be tucked up next to beautiful Rocky Mountains.

For Boulder — No. 4 — the U.S. News writers described the city as “a looker” whose backdrop is “the snow-capped Indian Peaks.”

Boulder gets high marks for incredible fitness and wellness options and a special nod is given to the rock climbing scene there. In fact, the publication chose to feature the city’s popular Flatirons in its tweet announcing the new rankings.


What’s it like to live in Boulder, CO?

Snug against the foothills where the Great Plains give rise to the Rocky Mountains, Boulder is nothing if not a looker. This city reveals its spectacle at the crest of a hill on U.S. Route 36 from Denver with its iconic sandstone slabs rising from the mountains, prefaced by pine-clad mesas and cradled within the backdrop of the snow-capped Indian Peaks.

For residents seeking wellness, Boulder has opportunities from forest bathing and free meditation sessions to an abundance of marijuana dispensaries, spas and alternative health care studios. The full spectrum of yoga disciplines is represented here, as well as a plethora of fitness options to ignite your curiosity, including parkour, aerial dance and “Animal Flow” ground-based movement classes. People looking to bring balance to their work life can find job perks that include participation in the city’s annual Tube to Work Day. Had it with the 9 to 5? Make like Boulder’s dirt bag climbers and live in a van, work odd jobs and become a fixture at the area’s legendary crags.

This blissed-out enclave attracts young professionals, families, academics, scientists, transplants from both coasts, old guards who insist it was way cooler in the 1970s and, above all, lovers of outdoor recreation. Trail runners, hikers, climbers, cyclists and more move here to live in this perpetual playground, where the answer to “What do you do?” is often one’s activity of choice, not occupation.

COVER STORY: Colorado Landmark, Realtors receives global recognition for Marshall Fire recovery efforts

 

BOULDER (April 18) – Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® recognizes Colorado Landmark, Realtors as their April 2022 recipient of “Leading RE Good Things” for their recovery efforts of the Marshall Fire. This global recognition was shared on Friday, April 15, across 70 countries and with more than 150,000 real estate agents across the globe in an “Inside Track” announcement by Leading Real EstateCompanies of the World President and CEO Paul Boomsma.
Mr. Boomsma recognized Colorado Landmark’s “incredible efforts” in the recovery of the Marshall Fire noting the huge difference the company made in the community in the month of January 2022. “Just hours after the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history destroyed more than 1,000 homes and displaced more than 15,000 people, the Colorado Landmark, Realtors team went to work raising more than $175,000 in less than 3 days, negotiating more than 1,000 hotel rooms for evacuated families, setting up an aid station in their Louisville office and assembling a free pop-up shop providing more than 400 community members with collected donations.”
Colorado Landmark, Realtors has been a Boulder Valley based boutique Real Estate brokerage specializing in luxury properties since 1977. Receiving the recognition, Colorado Landmark’s President and Co-owner, Orly Ripmaster, acknowledged being a support system for the community was paramount and that recovery efforts superseded any other business activity for the firm in the wake of the fire. “This is the community where we live, work and play, so when this community needed us, we were there,” Ripmaster stated. She noted that across their boutique organization of more than 40 local agents, Colorado Landmark served more than 600 volunteer hours in less than 30 days. The “Leading RE Good Things” program highlights the incredible people in the LeadingRE network, which includes more than 550 member brokerages across the globe, and the “good things” they are doing around the world. Being selected is an honor that Ripmaster believes is shared with all the survivors and those impacted for their strength and resilience. “Colorado Landmark is proud and humbled to be a part of the recovery efforts and help rebuild this incredible community. It’s a tremendous honor for a local, independent firm to earn a global recognition, and this recognition is one we share with our entire community who have truly demonstrated the best of all Good Things.”

Two Cities in Northern Colorado named among Wall Street Journal’s Top 10 Emerging Housing Markets for Spring 2022

The Hottest Places to Live Now Are Often the Most Affordable 

By Nicole FriedmanThe Wall Street Journal

Less expensive cities with strong local economies climbed The Wall Street Journal/Realtor.com Emerging Housing Markets Index in the first quarter, another sign that many home buyers are giving priority to affordability.

Fast-rising  housing prices  have pushed buyers from expensive coastal cities into cheaper housing markets in recent years.  Expanded remote-work opportunities  and a search for different lifestyles during the Covid-19 pandemic have accelerated the trend.

The migration is poised to continue as home prices set new highs and  rising mortgage-interest rates  increase borrowing costs for home buyers, economists say. The average 30-year mortgage rate jumped from 3.1% at the end of 2021 to 5.0% by mid-April, adding hundreds of dollars to the typical monthly mortgage payment.

“People are chasing affordability,” said Sam Khater, chief economist at mortgage-finance giant  Freddie Mac. In response to high housing prices and increased remote-work flexibility, he said, “people are reordering where they live.”

The Rapid City, S.D., metro area of about 145,000 people near the Wyoming border was the top-ranked market for the quarter. It was followed by Santa Cruz, Calif.; North Port, Fla.; Santa Rosa, Calif.; and Naples, Fla. The top 20 cities in the ranking have an average population size of about 600,000.

The Wall Street Journal/Realtor.com Emerging Housing Markets Index identifies the topmetro areas for home buyers seeking an appreciating housing market and lifestyle amenities.

The top-ranked markets in the first quarter had faster home sales, higher wages and shorter commute times than the market as a whole, said George Ratiu, manager of economic research at Realtor.com.  News Corp, parent of the Journal, operates Realtor.com.

North Port and Naples  were the top two markets in the fourth quarter  and held in the top five as Florida continues to attract migration from other states. Some of the top-ranked markets  are also desirable vacation destinations, including Santa Cruz, Naples and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

Rapid City, South Dakota’s second-biggest city, is a tourist and retirement destination because of its proximity to the Black Hills mountain range and Mount Rushmore. The metro area’s economy also depends on education, military and the healthcare sector, with Monument Health as the largest employer, Mr. Ratiu said.

Buyers have flocked to Rapid City in the past two years from Colorado, California and the East Coast in search of  fewer pandemic-related restrictions, access to outdoor recreation and a small-city feel, said Shauna Sheets of Keller Williams Realty Black Hills. Investors also have been drawn to the market’s affordable prices and rental demand, she said.

“What I hear more and more [is], ‘Rapid City is what Fort Collins used to be, it’s what Colorado Springs used to be, it’s what Denver used to be,’ ” she said. “What I’ve heard is, ‘Now we know how our state will react in a crisis, and I don’t like how my state reacts.’ ”

Rapid City’s house prices have climbed in response, making it more difficult for local buyers to compete, said Stuart Martin of Re/Max Results in Rapid City. The average sale price in the area hit $364,000 in the first quarter, up from $311,000 in the same quarter a year earlier, Ms. Sheets said.

About 77.5% of page views on Rapid City-area property listings came from outside the metro area in the first quarter, according to Realtor.com. The top metro areas for interest in Rapid City listings were Washington, D.C., Denver, Omaha, Neb., and Sioux Falls in eastern South Dakota.

In Topeka, Kan., which ranked 16th in the first-quarter rankings, affordable prices also are attracting out-of-state buyers and investors, said real-estate broker Abbey Wostal. The median sales price in the Topeka metro area was $155,000 in the first quarter, down 1.6% from the same period in 2021, according to the Sunflower Association of Realtors.

“Topeka, we’ve always said, we’re kind of a great little secret,” she said. “It may not be where you choose to vacation, but it is a great place to live, because it’s affordable.”

The Wall Street Journal/Realtor.com Emerging Housing Markets Index ranks the 300 biggest metro areas in the U.S. In addition to housing-market indicators, the index incorporates economic and lifestyle data, including real estate taxes, unemployment, wages, commute time and small-business loans.

Property Value Assessments & Appeals 2021

The Boulder County Assessor’s Office has completed its biennial reappraisal of all property in Boulder County. Notices of valuation are mailed to property owners on Saturday, May 1. If you are a homeowner, you should have received yours by now, and it has most certainly gone up in value!

This is based on the upward trend the real estate market has been experiencing, more than usual, for the past two years. However, this does not mean you shouldn’t appeal. Appeals are due by June 1st this year, and can be submitted online, mailed electronically or physically, or faxed.

Every odd year, county assessors in Colorado are required to reassess properties within their jurisdiction and determine the market value for each property as of June 30 of the prior year.  Therefore, this year’s reappraisal cycle is based on market values as of June 30, 2020. 

In Boulder County, there has been a positive change in values for residential properties overall. The median percent increases for residential type properties in this appraisal period is 11%.

Whether you need help researching home value within the above time period, or are wishing to deepen your understanding of how and why this process occurs, please reach out to us via phone at 303-443-3377 or email. We are here to offer you, our neighbors, with any assistance you may need!


 

Top Agent Magazine Features Candace Loving

Top Agent Candace Loving – of Colorado Landmark, Realtors in Boulder, Colorado – is a truly dedicated real estate professional who consistently provides her many clients with the very best customer service possible. Specializing in farms, ranches, land and residential luxury properties, Candace has built an impressive business on a sturdy foundation of honesty, integrity and deep industry knowledge, and has more than earned her reputation as a trusted, caring real estate advocate.

Candace began her journey in the world of real estate in 1990, initially working with her father on some of his development projects prior to taking on her own. After finding great success in that area, Candace obtained her real estate license in 2007, and the rest is history. Serving a wide swath of the Centennial State, Candace can currently claim that the lion’s share of her business is based upon referrals from past clients, positive word of mouth, and her reputation as an expert in the ranch, farm and land sales sector.

“I think it’s because I truly care about my clients,” says Candace, when asked how she has managed to achieve such impressive levels of trust and loyalty amongst those she works with. “I sincerely care, and it’s my compassion for them that really drives me. I think they feel very supported and know that they can count on me to have their best interests at heart. Also, treating people fairly is very important to me.”

In addition to her extensive development, investment, construction and design knowledge that provides her clients with extra value, there are many factors that come into play when assessing Candace’s impressive and ever-growing success story. Chief among them would be her expertise on water rights and title issues as well as negotiating skills and thorough, intelligent marketing strategies that maximize exposure for her many listings, translating into fast sales for top dollar, not to mention happy – returning and referring – clients.

Candace, who hold a perfect, five-star over-all rating on Zillow.com, truly enjoys what she does for a living. “I love helping my clients,” she says. “I love learning new things about the real estate industry, and I like being challenged and being a problem solver for my buyers and sellers.” Just one of many glowing reviews she has received reads in part: “Candace was the perfect agent for me and my situation. She was patient and supportive in the initial stages with my house hunting and decision making when I was still sorting out the best path forward and determining what the best solution was for my needs. When it came time to make an offer, she was extremely responsive which allowed me to secure my dream home in the incredibly competitive Boulder market… I highly recommend Candace.” 

When she’s not busy making her clients happy, Candace enjoys spending time with her daughters and friends, and she enjoys horses and skiing. She also loves to travel, particularly to the south of France.

Looking to the future, Candace’s plans include becoming licensed in Wyoming, and to continue building her already-thriving business. Above all, however, remains her longtime commitment to providing each and every one of her clients with the unparalleled customer service that has long been her calling card.
