WE DID IT! We made it through the most uncertain, difficult and stressful real estate years in the last decade. Let's also remember it was very difficult and uncertain in 2020. It was beyond stressful for homebuyers in 2020, 2021, and 2022. It was terrible for almost everyone in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. Often times, we are so myopic when it comes to "tough", "stressful" and "unprecedented" markets, that we fail to remember that we all made it through something similar just a few years back, only this time the variables and players are a bit different. We can always count on a changing and evolving market. That's why I'm employed! I live through the good and the bad every day so that you can make sense of the market and trends when it is your time to buy or sell. And, for what...more
As expected, the Northern Colorado real estate market had a pretty dreadful November, mainly the result of peak interest rates in the late September/October timeframe. It's a complicated time being a homebuyer, unless you take a leap of faith on the right home, and hope that the interest rates will begin to come back down. Some buyers are seeing this as an opportunity to pick up properties without ANY competition. Across the region, with waning demand, buyers are now seeing about a 3% reduction off of list price on average. If you're dipping your to into the market, understand this could be an amazing opportunity. Interest rates are already down 1% from their peak just 6 weeks ago, prices are off their highs and you have much, much less competition. The next 2-4 months might be the...more
The homes that closed in October were the result of contracts written in mid August through September when interest rates were accelerating towards the peak of about 7.8%. Even with the highest rates since the year 2000, there was still a "reasonable" amount of activity in Northern Colorado given the climate and rates appear to be stalling and potentially dropping in the new year. Sales are still down between 20-30% even with a bit more inventory than typical, however, much of that inventory is has been picked over and is sitting. In a unique market like this, it can be both difficult to sell a home, while also difficult to buy a home. It takes deep market awareness, patience and strategy to put the pieces together on either side. Working with an experienced real estate...more
The warm summer months are officially over as we head into fall. Typically, fall is a time where inventory begins to drop off and much of the buyer demand cools off since there are fewer homes to tour. The fall of 2023 is a bit of an anomaly, which is to be expected since the majority of the year has been an anomaly - with interest rates keeping buyer demand at bay. We are actually seeing an uptick in inventory when it typically declines - this is 100% a result of lingering listings that have been on the market for months. Something has got to give - either rates or prices and it doesn't appear that rates will be falling anytime soon.more
