Boulder Ranked #1 Housing Market for Growth and Stability in the USA!


Boulder, Colorado is a great place to own a home! This SmartAsset study ranks Boulder as having the strongest housing market for growth and stability in the United States–and Boulder has been in the #1 spot for the last five years! This is what SmartAsset had to say about our community.

Leading this study for the fifth year in a row is Boulder, Colorado. Besides being a great place for career opportunities, Boulder has shown consistently strong performance in the housing market. It has seen a 268% increase in housing value from the first quarter of 1994 up to and including the fourth quarter of 2018, the fourth-highest percentage of any metro area in our top 10, and fifth-highest in our study overall. It also has a 0% chance of a home losing at least 5% of its value in the 10 years after purchase. For those looking to invest in real estate, Boulder is a safe bet and is in one of the best states in the country for homeowners.

COVID-19 Resources

I am sharing this information provided by KC Becker, Speaker of the House, Colorado House District 13. I hope it helps you access resources you might need. Thank you to KC Becker! If you want to reach KC, you can email her at repkcbecker@gmail.com or call her at 303.866.2578. She says her staff are picking up messages every day and they will get back to you.

COVID-19 Resources

As the Coronavirus continues to spread, I want to make sure you have accurate information and access to necessary resources to get through these difficult times.

Basic Necessities

  • Hunger Free Colorado operates a hotline from 8:00am-4:30pm M-F (855-855-4626) for anyone who may need assistance securing food.
  • The Colorado Department of Education has information on school districts that are distributing food for families, staff, and students in need.
  • Colorado Emergency Childcare Collaborative: A new emergency childcare has been formed in Colorado to support health care workers, including critical support staff, and emergency first responders.
  • Comcast and Centurylink have announced that they will not cut off anyone’s internet service or charge late fees during this time. They are also eliminating data caps and providing free access for their wifi hotspots for all to use.
  • Xcel Energy will not disconnect electric or natural gas services to any residents during this time. If you are having difficulty paying your bills, reach out to Xcel and they will help arrange a payment plan that works for you.
  • Energy Outreach Colorado for bill payment assistance and  anyone experiencing a critical home energy issue call 1-866-HEAT-HELP
  • Colorado Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) provides assistance for energy costs and equipment repairs for individuals and seniors.  Call 1-866-432-8435 for more information.
  • Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA) provides food, shelter, and other basic necessity assistance for Boulder County residents.
Health Insurance

If you  are currently uninsured or have lost coverage due to COVID-19 you can now get health insurance on the exchange. A special enrollment period just opened at Connect For Health Colorado and will continue through April 3rd. Insurance coverage will begin on April 1st.

Businesses and Workers

  • The Small Business Administration is offering disaster relief assistance in all 64 counties to small businesses that have closed or experienced a reduction in business due to COVID-19. These loans can be used fo pay debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills. Find more information about applying for assistance here.
  • Colorado COVID-19 Business Resource Center: Resources for state and federal COVID-19 announcements, programs, and information relevant to Colorado businesses and workers.
  • CDLE COVID-19 Resources: CDLE information for employers and workers including paid sick leave, unemployment insurance, and wage claims.
  • The Colorado Restaurant Association has resources for employees who have been affected by restaurants and bars closing.
Community
As you shop for basic goods, think about your neighbors. Grocery stores are advising shoppers to refrain from panic buying. There is no shortage of food supplies despite difficulty keeping shelves stocked so many stores are offering designated shopping hours for seniors and those at the greatest risk. Reach out to your local store for exact times.
#DoingMyPartCO

  • Help Colorado Now: A centralized hub for ways to help, from giving to the COVID-19 Response Fund, to volunteering at a food pantry, and donating blood. Every little thing can make a difference!
  • Many newspapers including The Denver Post and The New York Times have taken down their paywalls to offer free Coronavirus coverage to the public, so stay informed.
  • Stop Fraud Colorado: There is a lot of misinformation out there, and some people are using this crisis to take advantage of people’s fears. Be careful of anyone asking for donations or your personal information during this time. Be sure to report any scams.
 

For local resources, please visit your local public health department website at BoulderGrandGilpinClear Creekand Jackson Counties.

 

If you believe you may be getting sick (symptoms include fever, coughing, and shortness of breath): 

  1. STAY HOME except when directed by your primary care provider to get medical treatment. Avoid contact with others.
  2. If you have an underlying condition that may increase your risk, CALL your primary care provider to ask if you need to be evaluated in person. They may want to monitor your health more closely and test you for COVID-19 and other respiratory infections like the flu. Higher risk groups include:
    1. Older people (over 60), especially those over 80.
    2. People with chronic medical conditions like heart, lung, kidney disease, or diabetes. Older people with chronic conditions are at the greatest risk.
    3. Visit CDPHE’s website for information about priority groups for testing.
  3. DO NOT go to an emergency room to get tested unless you are having a medical emergency (for COVID-19, that may mean shortness of breath or difficulty breathing). Instead, call your primary care provider.
  4. If you are going to the State Lab to get tested (information on location, times, and testing criteria here), you will need a health care provider’s note, and a photo ID that matches the name on the note.
Deadlines for both state and federal income tax returns have been extended to July 15, 2020 to provide taxpayers and businesses some relief to focus on essential payments at this time. Information on the federal extension can be found here.
