Boulder Colorado was just voted #1 college town in the U.S.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Boulder’s unemployment is at 2.9%, tied for the 13th lowest metropolitan area in the country.  Google is planning a major expansion at Pearl and 30th in the heart of Boulder, they are looking to add 1500 new jobs.  Apartment rental rates on the Hill are jumping approximately 6% for the coming 2015-2016 school year.  And lets not forget the CU Engineering Dept. expansion by 2020.

The Boulder County economic forecast is looking pretty solid, and it’s a great time to own real estate especially income producing rentals.  Real estate appreciation may slow a bit in the next 2 years from our 10%+ increase this past year, but the upward trend will certainly continue.  

If you have any questions about investing in condos, single family homes or multi-family properties give me call.  I would be happy to discuss the various options and potential returns one might achieve in our current market.
