June sales were up 25% from May but down roughly 15% from a year ago.  This might not seem to be good news but June was actually a strong month for the Boulder County real estate market.  Through May, sales were down 34% and in June the YTD number was cut by 6%.  Not a 180 degree turn around but small steps are good too. 

The median price for sales in June were also very strong.  The median price for single family properties sold during the month was $379,000, up from $318,000 in June.  This doesn’t mean that prices jumped, it simply means that more, higher priced homes sold.

 

The following tables show comparative YTD sales data from both single family and condos sold 1st and 2nd quarters in Boulder County.  Look at the relative strength in the Superior Market.
