Boulder is #1

Our little piece of paradiseBoulder’s housing market has been the most stable residential real estate market in America since 1991.  I’ll let that statement soak in for a moment.

The most stable housing market in America, as defined by the finance site SmartAsset, is the market with solid upward growth in home prices partnered with a low probability of home values declining by 5% within a decade of the home being purchased.  The site looked at 358 housing markets in the county for the past 25 years, from 1991 to today.

Sitting at the top of the list is Boulder, Colorado where home prices have climbed more than 300% in the past 25 years and “the average homeowner in Boulder hadn’t suffered any significant price declines since 1991,” the analysis showed.

The year 1991 caught my attention because that’s the year our son was born and we bought our home in Louisville.  Using current MLS data for homes in our neighborhood that sold already this summer, I determined our home’s value has increased an incredible 338%, all while we were busy raising our family in it.  Cue the happy dance!

But Boulder wasn’t the only Colorado market to land in the top 10 communities for most stable housing market.  Fort Collins came in at #6 and Denver was named #9.  You can see the entire list here.
