Boulder County Real Estate - The face of Boulder is changing

In case you haven't noticed all of the many changes effecting the overall feel and look of Boulder...... Take another look.  Boulder is embracing the opportunity to reduce its carbon footprint.  Many of the exclusively retail areas of Boulder are being converted to mixed use areas....residential integrated with commercial, retail and entertainment, reducing the need to "get into the car" every time a resident wants to eat out, go shopping, or be entertained.

Boulder is leading the way with regard to alternative energy and rewarding homeowners for  "green" features in new homes.  Builders and homeowners alike are realizing the value  buyers are placing on the "green" energy-efficient features of their homes.  Just ask any appraiser who is familiar with Boulder.  Take, for example, the addition of solar panels on a home.... a home owner/seller is more likely to recover their full cost of materials and installation, than anywhere else on the front range ~ let alone the state.  A decrease in buyer's perceived value of such features drops in a corresponding relationship with an area's relationship to Boulder.  In other words,; more market value is placed on energy-saving features added to homes in or closest to Boulder.  The perceived value of such features, drops in direct relationship as the distance from Boulder increases.

Interesting to hear about what is happening in Boulder and how going green is being treated in and around the area.  Hope you can post some pictures as examples of the changing landscape.

Vickie, the largest solar power plant in US rises in Arcadia Florida.  The Desoto project cost about $150 million to build. "Green" is the way to go.
