2023 Real Property Notice of Evaluation for Jefferson County, COIf you own a home in Colorado, you've no doubt opened the dreaded new property tax assessment notice.  We all knew this was coming, but it's still a tough pill to swallow!  As real estate agents, we want to make sure our clients understand how these changes will affect them.

We worked with our friends at Land Title to breakdown all things about Colorado's Property Taxes to share with all of you.

When and how much? 

In late April, county assessors mailed out valuation notices based on property values as of June 30, 2022, which also happens to be close to when home values peaked in Colorado.  On average, the increase is expected to be 25% to 27%, and in some counties (including resort markets) they may be as high as 65% or more.

Tablerock Golden, CO real estate statistics 20222022 was another record breaking year for Golden's Tablerock neighborhood.   The highest priced home sold for $2M, a huge increase from last year's most expensive home that sold for $1.545M.  The average sold price also increased quite a bit with this year's average hitting $1.55M.  

Average days on market increased from 2 days to 12 days year over year, but this number is a little skewed as just two homes were listed for quite a long time while the others sold in just 3-6 days.

The change in interest rates throughout 2022 did have an effect on Tablerock's real estate market.  The biggest impact is that homeowners began simply refraining from listing their home towards the end of the year.  In fact, no one has listed a home in Tablerock since mid…

When I moved to Colorado, I had to get used to checking my weather app daily.  Back in Ohio, I knew that today's weather would probably be just like yesterday's, but, in Colorado, the "If you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes," claim was not an exaggeration. 

These recent mortgage rate changes are feeling pretty similar to our state's weather!  We now have to check rates every day if we want to accurately talk about them.  Just today, the average 30-year fixed rate is 5.55% when last week it was 5.13% and last year it was 2.87% (based on 0.8 points average).  As any homeowner knows, those small percentage points can really add up in a monthly payment!  

All this being said, it is good to keep some perspective.  While the current rates are…

Food For Thought, DenverWe are in constant awe of our real estate agent community here in Denver.  As the school year begins, we wanted to highlight one cause in particular: Food For Thought.  Bob Bell, a charismatic, kind, local real estate agent, created Food for Thought in 2012 with the goal of alleviating kids' hunger - especially over the weekends - in Denver's schools. Initially, Bob and some other volunteers were able to raise enough money to supply weekend food bags to two Denver public schools.  Fast forward to 2021, Food For Thought now works with 72 Denver area schools and continues to be a 100% volunteer organization.

Every Friday, individuals (many of which are realtors!), students and corporate volunteers gather at one of three Denver area locations to pack food…
