Home Prices fell in the 3rd quarter

Well, this should be of little surprise to most of you but the hard stats are …

The National Association of Realtors tracks about 152 metropolitan areas throughout the US and of those, 120 had price declines in median home sale prices year-over-year (YOY).  Unit sales fell almost 8% compared to the 3rd quarter of 2007.

This was primarily caused by the sale of foreclosure and distressed properties which represented about 40% of all transactions in Q3.

“Let’s Bag Hunger” Open House

It is saddening to me that we have people in Boulder, Lafayette, Louisville and the surrounding Boulder County area that cannot afford to properly feed themselves and their families.  One of the non-profit organizations that I donate some of the profits from my Boulder Real Estate business to is Community Food Share.

Community Food Share is the food bank for about 63 agencies in Boulder and Broomfield county that include soup kitchens, emergency assistance programs, senior programs, shelters, child care centers and agencies serving disabled citizens, the mentally ill, low-income working poor and at-risk youth.

Typically, open houses for luxury homes feature food, refreshments, giveaways, etc. for people who attend but I felt that is a great opportunity during the food drive week for this boulder luxury home open house to promote Community Food Share!

For every Boulder real estate agent that attends the open house for this boulder luxury house, I will be funding the purchase of 10 bags of groceries .. and of course every Boulder real estate agent is encouraged to bring cans of food.
