The real estate market in Boulder County is starting to get its legs for spring. Showings have been very strong for this time of year but up until this past week contracts have been lagging. The chart above shows two data sets collected every Thursday morning since last April. The blue line shows the number of homes that went under contract during any given week and the red line shows the number of properties that sold during any given week. You can see that the sales for January reflect the typical slower activity over the Holidays. However, the far right side of the blue line shows a definite trend toward strong activity for the spring.
