There is a shortage of inventory right now Michael and so we are seeing homes getting multiple, over list price offers at this point. As for pre-approved short sales, most agents tell you the lender will not negotiate on those, but I have seen later where they did! Lets get the offer written and if there are no others on the table, the lender may come down. Lenders can approve a price, but if they do not have offers at that, sometimes they do get realistic and adjust the price.... more
Denver became a strong sellers market because we have never had a huge explosion of growth like other areas; Florida, Arizona and we don't rely on just one major industry like, many areas on both coasts.

With owndership you have your initial equity, appreciation, tax advantages, freedom to change your space as you see fit, and if you're the type, pride of ownership. www.holbenhomes.com... more
I can't see Boulder having a meltdown due to several key factors:
1. College town
2. Slow growth initiative
3. Appreciation in the bubble years was never out of control as compared to towns that are now see huge declines
4. Tech savvy/outdoors oriented community that is drawing more and more growing companies
I once heard that, until they move the mountains, Boulder will always be a desirable place to live. I couldn't agree more.
