Boulder Named #1 Small City in America by Monocle Magazine

Monocole Magazine, World Famous Travel and Culture Publication, has declared Boulder the #1 Small city in America and the only American city in the top 10.

“There’s something fascinating about the currents moving through this place, from tech start-ups to regenerative farming projects via health-food brands. Boulder punches above its weight because it seems to have perfected the work-life balance (people “work to live” here, according to one Boulderite).”

Since 1977, Colorado Landmark Realtors has been setting the tone for Local Real Estate Excellence in the best small city in America. Let us help you find your home in the best community in America.

Showing Update for Boulder County & Beyond

Our industry has been experiencing almost daily changes in the way we practice, and what we are allowed to do. This past week, after Colorado Governor Jared Polis announced the “Safer at Home” policy for the State, many individual counties updated their orders to extend “Stay at Home” policies for a longer period.

Here is an update on the current rules by county, (as of April 30, 2020) as it pertains to the real estate business:

Real Estate Showings: In-person real estate showings are permitted under the following conditions:
  • Unoccupied (vacant) homes and land only
  • Appointment only (no open houses)
  • Masks required for all participants
  • Number of in-person participants limited to the greatest extent possible
    • Participation by children is strongly discouraged
  • Social Distancing Requirements are met at all times
    • From the Order: Social Distancing Requirements. To reduce the risk of disease transmission, individuals shall maintain at least a six-foot distance from other individuals, wash hands with soap and water for at least twenty seconds as frequently as possible or using hand sanitizer, cover coughs or sneezes (into the sleeve or elbow, not hands), regularly clean high-touch surfaces, and not shake hands.
    • Must otherwise adhere to all guidance on social distancing
    • Must maintain 6 feet of distance from customers when showing houses
  • Must maintain a detailed log of customer interactions in case contact tracing becomes necessary. This log should include name, date, and location of contact, as well as the contact’s phone number and/or email address.
  • Must provide gloves and masks for any customer interactions
  • Should perform tasks remotely or virtually whenever possible, including pre- and post-visit conferences

Showings are not allowed until May 9th.

Tri-County Health’s website has some guidance that says showings can resume in Douglas County on April 27th but says nothing about showings for Adams and Arapahoe Counties.  This implies that showings may not be allowed in these two Counties but it is unclear as there is nothing specific stating showings are prohibited.
Real Estate Showings/Closings:
may continue in Denver subject to the following provisions:

  • Open houses are not permitted
  • Properties must be vacant, with no one living there, unless the only occupant in the home is the owner and not a rental tenant
  • Social Distancing requirements must be followed at all times
  • All commonly-used surfaces must be wiped down and sanitized before and after the showings.

At any time that we are showing properties, we ensure that:

-Buyers have thoroughly vetted the property online, reviewed all documents and disclosures, virtual tours, and floorplans, and if possible has driven by the property ahead of time.

– All parties are required to wear masks, gloves, and booties and sign a disclosure stating that they have not knowingly been exposed to or are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.  Buyers are also instructed not to touch anything in the property.

– Surfaces and doorknobs are wiped down in between showings.

Of course, these rules are changing frequently and may change again.  At Colorado Landmark, we are focused on adapting each day to make sure we can serve our clients safely and effectively, no matter what is going on.  Showings are just one part of the transaction, and we have procedures in place for the entire process including virtual buyer and seller consultations, virtual tours and showings, electronic document signing, safe and virtual inspections and appraisals, and no-contact closings.

If we can help you in any way, please contact us!
