This Week: Turn Key Flips and New Urbanism [Fresh Listings, Get 'Em Hot]

30+ new listings hit the Boulder real estate market this week. 12 are worth your time to see. This week: a couple of flips and a sort of new urbanist condo in the mix.    

Are they worth the price? You decide. Let's go see some houses.

Single Family Homes


86 Genesee Court | $550K | More Details
This spot of town on the Southeast side of Boulder is near open space, bike paths and easy access to commuting corridors. It's also adjacent a possible large development that has been hotly contested for many years. The split layout could be a challenge for many families but for the price, this one should get a look. Due diligence:  Be sure to review the neighborhood market performance during the last cycle before writing your offer.  It's not a pretty picture. If your Realtor can't do the analysis, find one who can









4405 Osage Drive | $680K | More Details
Did the seller really add $160K in value during the last 60 days? You decide. They paid $519K in April and redid the interior. They also replaced the sewer line, added air conditioning, exterior doors, and an insulated garage door.








3980 Greenbriar Boulevard | $799K | More Details
An open space marvel. This house backs right to it. Some updated finishes, layout could be a challenge.  










902 Grant Place | $879K | More Details
Cute little bungalow on Rose Hill. Lots of updates. Solid location.  Due diligence: Smallish lot and historical. Caution on your expansion plans.









2203 Holyoke Drive | $1.075MM | More Details

Family friendly layout and the best schools in Boulder. The value is in the cul-de-sac location and proximity to open space. Bring a budget to gut and redo the interior.








Attached Dwellings

1405 Broadway Street 307 | $265K | More Details
CU kiddie condo. Cool loft could function as storage or possibly a sleeping area (as long as you're not prone to falling dreams).  Due diligence: Review the HOA docs and trajectory of regulations before your plan your Air BnB empire.







2610 Iris Avenue 101 | $299K | More Details
Iris Hollow is not just cute, it's very livable, with plenty of retail nearby and access to bike paths. The owner of the last unit we sold there is now car-free. From a design perspective, this isn't really New Urbanism, but it's close enough.  There are plenty of nearby lifestyle amenities. 













3025 Broadway Street A-5 | $370K | More Details
Great location for lock and leave, low maintenance and easy access to downtown. This one has some nice updates.   We sold one last month to a very selective buyer.    










964 Arapahoe Avenue 2 | $389K | More Details

Great location for access to downtown. Nice updates. Due diligence: Flood damage likely, check for proper mitigation.












3467 Iris Court | $597K | More Details
Solid location, vaulted ceilings, a decent location, and a cheap HOA. Of course there are already offers on the table.    Snooze you lose. 










1655 Walnut Street 105 | $625K | More Details


Built in 2008, this is a turn key apartment with a modern design and friendly layout. It's in the heart of downtown and within walking distance to everything. 











2008 18th Street 3 | $729K | More Details


Seller paid $600K last year. Although it looks historic, it was built in 2001 so should be reasonable with respect to maintenance and energy efficiency. Great location. Did it gain 21% in a year? You decide.
