Are Boulder Real Estate prices too high?
It all depends on your frame of reference.
In Boulder many of us who have been here 40+ years are shocked by how much homes have appreciated from year to year. However, the shock subsides quickly when you consider the home prices in other desirable parts of the country.
After seeing the “median” home prices is some of these other areas across the country, Boulder quickly seems to be a relative bargain, especially when you consider that the quality of life is actually better in Boulder than it is in most of these other places. This of course, is a value statement, and depends on what you consider “quality” of life. But for those of us that live here, or those who get it, the choice is clear.
