A Few Worth Considering [Get 'Em Hot]

by Osman Parvez

Visiting Boulder over Thanksgiving and thinking of buying a residence to be closer to family?

Let's look at a couple of Boulder listings well worth considering.  Call me to arrange a showing on these during your visit.    

1965 21st Street, Unit 6
In a nutshell:  You're looking at a large lock-n-leave condo with an open floor plan, vaulted ceilings and a rooftop patio close to downtown Boulder.    Two bedrooms, three baths, and 2,300+ SQFT means you'll have room for guests or a visiting grandchild.   Build in 1988, so it should be reasonably energy efficient and beyond most environmental concerns.  Asking: $759,000.    The last market sale was 12 years ago for $575,000.   It looks like the seller has added some finished square footage.   CLICK FOR DETAILS.   Call me for a showing at 303.746.6896.


501 Mapleton Avenue
In a nutshell:  In case you didn't know, this is the heart of Boulder's Mapleton Hill historic district.  You're looking at a 5 bedroom, 5 bath house with 4,832 SQFT and a two car detached garage.   Four of of those bedrooms are on the upper level, the preferred layout for the vast majority of buyers.   It's sitting on a ~7,500 SQFT lot, a fairly decent size, and because it was built in 1950, it should be easier to obtain permits for renovations or even a full scrape.    

Take a look at the interior shots however, a full scrape isn't warranted.   You could live in it as is.    I regularly advice my investment oriented clients to consider property with valuation anchors, such as killer views, proximity to downtown or open space.   This one has it, folks.

Negotiation Strategy:  It was twice listed in the past.  First during 2012, starting at $1.75 and dropping to $1.63.   It was listed again this past spring at $1.65 and withdrawn in May.    The current listing is for $1.65 and it went active on November 15.    It's almost like they're listing it intentionally during the off season.   Does that suggest a motivated seller?   I think it does!     CLICK for details.   CALL 303.746.6896 for a showing.
