1. Greeley and Loveland Post Record Prices in May 2019

    School is out, pools are open and summer is heating up!  I cannot believe we are already into the meat of the selling season in Northern Colorado.  In late 2018, several forecasters were predicting a bit of a slower season, but all signs are pointing to continued gains in appreciation as we head into the second half of the year.

  2. Backup Offers Explained

    If you've been in the Northern Colorado real estate market in the last 5 years, you know just how tough it is and how much competition you're up against.  There's not much for sale, and then when you're finally able to get a showing scheduled, you have to make a quick decision, and you're likely competing against multiple bidders, all above list price, waiving all kinds of contingencies, too.  I…Read More

  6. September Prices Reverse Course

    While the headline "prices reverse course" can seem ominous, we need to put it in the right perspective.  First, as indicated below, all median values are up nearly between 9.6% and 12.11% as compared to 2017 values.  10%+ value increases are nothing to sneeze at - it is generally a $40,000+ appreciation in a median home in just one year.  Your house has a reasonable full time job!  Additional…Read More
