See Broomfield CO Homes for Sale under $250,000 now! Or, read on for a report on Broomfield CO home sales: Homes sold are red,homes under contract are purple,homes for sale are blue What this report tells you:  I have eliminated the category of homes under $200,000 for Broomfield because so few homes sell in that price point.  Broomfield is a smaller market than the other two reports I do - Westminster and Arvada.  I think that's the main reason for so few sales in Broomfield, but I may soon be making the same change for Arvada as prices all over the metro area increase. How to buy a house:  To buy a Broomfield home for less than $250,000, call me - I work with a limited number of clients so I can be available to show a new listing on short notice.

See Broomfield CO Homes for Sale under $200,000 now! Or, read on for a report on Broomfield CO home sales: Homes sold are red,homes under contract are purple,homes for sale are blue What this report tells you:  So few Broomfield homes sell for less than $200,000, I'm considering eliminating this category.  But that's not because no one wants one at that price, it's because houses simply cost more than that in Broomfield, CO.
