What Snow Storm? Go See the Fresh Listings [Get 'Em Hot]

by Osman Parvez


A storm is bearing down on Boulder this weekend, but if you're seriously shopping for real estate - put on your boots. You need to see listings when they're fresh.     

This week, 26 new property listings hit the Boulder real estate market. We culled the bad locations, refreshed listings, and other undesirables. Here are 12 worth seeing.  


Call me to schedule a private showing.  303.746.6896.



Attached Dwellings 




1301 Canyon Blvd 408 | $1,249,000 More Details 

If you're looking for a turn-key, luxury condo, this is a good option. The location doesn't get any closer to downtown. 1500 SF, two garage spaces, lock and leave.






900 Pearl St 207 & 209 | $2,750,000 More Details 

You won't often see a fire sale at the high end, not in this market anyway. The asking price was nearly $4MM last year and the owner paid $2.76MM in 2005. 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, nearly 4,000 SF and nearly 850 SF of rooftop terrace? Jump on it, now. Call me for a private showing at 303.746.6896.



3000 Broadway St 10 & 11| $698,888 More details 



Two units, one great location but probably most appropriate for an investor. Live in the top, rent the bottom or vice-versa. The location offers easy downtown access, the finishes... well, not so fantastic.








2850 E College Ave 309 | $424,900 More Details 


A solid choice for a CU student. Landmark Lofts are adjacent to campus and modern, which means Junior can focus on school instead of maintenance. Student density is very high in this location, but it's not the party side of town. Probably not the right choice for anyone else. 






Single Family Homes 




3674 Chase Ct | $559,000 More Details 

The large lot and updates are great. The basement bedrooms, not so much but it's liveable. You're on a street with little traffic and the house faces north/south, the outdoor spaces look pretty good. Martin Acres has seen a lot of activity this spring. Prepare for a bidding war. 




2485 Dartmouth Ave | $715,000 More Details 

This one is on the less busy, upper part of Dartmouth Ave or it wouldn't have made the cut. Interior isn't entirely dated, but it could use a refresh. The value is in the open space access, views, and schools. 









2715 Iliff St | $839,900 More Details 

We don't know about "coveted" but this is a solid location on Table Mesa. If you have need for 6 bedrooms, this could work for you. Interior is dated. 







4455 Chippewa Dr | $850,000 More Details 


A large ranch without a basement in Frasier meadows. Four bedrooms, three baths, and no stairs. With respect to valuation, we recommend carefully reviewing the comps and past history on the MLS before writing that offer. 





865 13th St | $850,000 More Details 

This was already under contract once and now it's back. The split layout and non conforming bedrooms aren't great, but the location is very desirable. Check for red cups in adjacent recycle bins, this location tends to have a lot of students. Lots of comments in the SPD, read carefully. 



3975 Newport Ln | $925,000 More Details 

Very quiet location in Wonderland Lake. Finishes could use an update. Easy access to open space and west of Broadway. We're not huge fans of a split layouts, most buyers prefer all bedrooms on the main or upper levels but this factor is largely offset by the location.







300 Evergreen Ave | $2,385,000 More Details 


A trophy in one of the best locations in town. Nicely updated and buttoned up. Comparable to Trailhead without the construction risk. We're taking clients to see it this afternoon, so will have more details shortly. Call with questions or to arrange a private showing.
