1. 2018 Wrap Up and Look Ahead to 2019

    Another year has come and gone.  If you were in the Northern Colorado real estate market, or even if you were just on the sidelines, you knew just how dynamic the market was in 2018.  2018 was another year of records, and a few outlier months that left us scratching our heads.  Every year is different and 2019 is shaping up to be another interesting year in real estate.  Let’s see how we fin…Read More

  2. 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

  3. Sales Hold Steady, Median Values Increasing Again

    What seems to be a very short lived "correction" may be just that, short lived.  The late summer surge of inventory helped to keep median prices lower than they had been in over a year, but that trend seems to have reversed in October, as the last gasp of sales plays out in 2017.  Prices in Fort Collins returned to the $375,000+ mark as homes in the Loveland/Berthoud area saw a new record median…Read More

  4. Fort Collins, Greeley, & Loveland Gain Ground

    There's plenty of talk out there: "It's slowing down", "Is the crash here?" etc.  I've gotten questions at the dentist, the post office, and a brewery.  Real estate is always the talk of the town, which is exactly how I like it.  What I also like is providing numbers so that those seeking good info can have it to share at their next dinner party.  It's what I do. The market seems to be finding…Read More

  5. Is Inventory Returning?

    In the middle of the year as summer heats up, the Northern Colorado real estate market follows suit.  Every June and July, we expect increased activity - more homes for sale and more sales as a result.  In 2017, however; what we saw in June was pretty important.  In Fort Collins we saw a 35% increase in active listings over 2016 figures.  In fact, this is the highest number of homes for sale i…Read More

  6. Is a Shift in the Market on the Horizon?

    Another month is in the books and interestingly enough, we might be starting to see a little bit of a shift in the market - now, whether that kind of shift will continue is yet to be seen - with the biggest and best real estate months coming up, we hope to be able to track any potential issues along the way.  Keep in mind, individual Northern Colorado real estate markets can and will ebb and flo…Read More

  9. The Reality of an Accelerated Market

    With one quarter in the books for 2016, Northern Colorado real estate continues its unprecedented and historic pace. Year-to-date sales increased regionally in large part due to the nearly 25 percent gain in the Greeley/Evans area. A total of 2150 home sales represented about a 12% increase over 2015 YTD sales.  As expected, home prices region-wide broke the $300,000 mark, with nearly double digi…Read More

  10. September 2015 Home Sales ‘Robust’

    September 2015 home sales in the four-county region continue the robust pace with 1,816 closed sales representing an 13.0 percent increase from September last year and the median price was up 14.9 percent to $300,000. It is interesting to note that Weld County, the area with the lowest median selling price, also is the area with the highest increase in sales, while Larimer County, the area with th…Read More
