One innovative Boulder, Colorado real estate company takes clients to a neighborhood where they park the SUV, remove bicycles from the bike rack and show homes to clients by bicycle tour.
In fact, the entire business, Pedal To Properties, is built around the idea of bicycling to see homes.
For the past several months Matt Kolb and co-owner Chris Sweeney have been putting together this innovative service.
The company bought a small fleet of high-end bikes that are easily transported on the back of their SUVs.
When Kolb or Sweeney take clients out to look at properties, if the client is interested and the terrain is bike-friendly, they pedal around. “These are fun cruiser bikes – a very comfortable ride.
Clients see more of the homes and neighborhoods where they want to live. The service appeals to many different types of people – athletic, environmentally conscious, and the young at heart,” Kolb says.
