Sun Valley Summer! “Go Time” for Local Real Estate

Boulder MountainsWelcome to another fabulous, fun filled Sun Valley summer!  And no matter how you slice it, the time is right to be in the Sun Valley Real Estate market.

Sellers will benefit from strong increases in buyer demand and recent sales activity.  Pricing and values are up and inventory is low.  Multiple competing offers are common and well priced product is selling immediately.

Buyers seeking to take advantage of the last of the remaining distressed and bank owned inventory still have a few great options (but they are going  fast!) and the interest rates for new loans are still at historic lows.

As our market shifts from the unique conditions created by the historic economic downturn, excellent opportunity exists for a short period of time for both buyers and sellers.  We can help you make the most of the market
