A lot of logistics go into a move – especially a move to a new town or state. The question I get the most from out-of-town buyers trying to figure out their move to Boulder is, what time of year do the most listings hit the market?
So, here is a short summary of Boulder real estate’s seasonal trends:
“Spring is nature’s way of saying let’s party.” – Robin Williams
The most action in the Boulder market happens in spring – listings hit the market like rapid fire and buyers gobble them up. The spring craze has been starting at the end of January and picking up real momentum by the end of March. The market is full bore in April and May and begins to slow around Memorial Day.
“Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.” – Sam Keen
The market goes on summer vacation right around July 4th. Few listings hit the market and those that do usually sit on the market longer because buyers are off backpacking or sun-bathing or at the water park with the kids.
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus
The market picks up again the first weekend of September and remains pretty active until Thanksgiving – though the market is still slower in fall than in spring.
“Winter is a season of recovery and preparation” – Paul Theroux
The market goes into hibernation November through mid-to-end of January. But if a buyer is looking for a deal it is worthwhile to step out of the den to take a look at the winter inventory.
