1. Upgrades That Add Value

    In talking with contractors, landscapers and interior designers, they've all noted a huge uptick in work and activity.  It seems that while most people were quarantined indoors through most of March and April, they decided to tackle all the projects they could during this unique "break" in work and life. With nearly every buyer and seller I work with, I get the question: "What are the best upgrad…Read More

  2. Prices Pop in the Pandemic

    We're finally seeing impacts from COVID-19 in the Northern Colorado real estate market, since most of the homes that were closed in April were those that went under contract in March near the beginning of shelter in place.  During that time, in person showings were only possible once the home was under contract, somewhat putting the cart before the horse.  I am certain there were hundreds of sel…Read More

  3. Safest Real Estate In Northern Colorado

    There is still plenty of fear and unknown in the Northern Colorado real estate market and we aren't entirely sure how things will play out in the region post-COVID.  What we do know is that there has been a constant demand for Northern Colorado homes in the last decade and we don't expect that demand to slow.  Every homebuyer has fears of buying at a financially unsettled time.  The best we can…Read More

  4. 2020 Starts Off Well

    Two of the three markets I cover started off at a much better clip than 2019, while one (Loveland) kept an equal pace with sales from the previous year.  January, traditionally a pretty slow month, was just the opposite in Fort Collins and Greeley.  It's usually a slower month because the closings we see in January are a result of homes going under contract between Thanksgiving and Christmas, a …Read More

  5. Homeowner Tenure Increases

    According to the National Association of Realtors, most homeowners are sticking in their current home longer than ever before.  In fact, nationwide we have seen homeowner tenure increases of 3 years since 2008.  With the most recent national data available, in 2018, homeowner tenure reached a median value of 13 years.  13 years without a move sounds like an incredibly long time without a move, …Read More

  6. 2019 Real Estate Wrap Up

    Real estate 2019 finished strong in Northern Colorado, and while it is still considered a record breaking year, 2019 was finally the year we saw an end to the 6/7/8% gains in median value.  Anecdotally, the market as a whole throughout Northern Colorado seemed to be as busy as ever, but prices just didn't creep up as fast as they have in the last 4 years.  Sales held steady throughout the region…Read More

  7. Record Home Prices In Fort Collins

    We're at the peak of the selling season and it's certainly a busy one.  The homes closing in June and early July are the result of contracts written in May when the market begins to really cook.  Typically, after school lets out, we see a fury of buy/sell activity and this year is no different.  Every month, at least one area of the regions is hitting a new record value (Loveland/Berthoud &…Read More

  8. This NoCo City Had a Huge Jump in Sales

    Can you believe it's already back to school time in Northern Colorado?  This is the time of year we all take a collective (yet short) pause to catch our breath and gear up for the action between Labor Day and Thanksgiving.  Speaking of action, Greeley had a HUGE jump in sales in July, which single-handedly put sales in the area into positive territory as compared to 2017. Northern Colorado Home …Read More

  9. Home Values Are Soaring in Northern Colorado

    We are in the heat of the summer and the Northern Colorado real estate market is on fire, but whether that is good or bad depends on which side of the deal you're on.  Both sides can agree that home values are soaring in Northern Colorado.  Take a look below to see what's happening in your sub-market: Northern Colorado Home Sales Northern Colorado Median Home Values Fort Collins The amount of ho…Read More

  10. Home Prices Hit New Highs In Fort Collins

    With a headline that can nearly be repeated every month, "Home Prices Hit New Highs in Fort Collins", the upward trajectory of the real estate market is holding steady and continues to push new limits.  Not to be outdone, although not at record highs, the Loveland/Berthoud and Greeley/Evans markets are just off all-time highs and like Fort Collins, they will be moving onward and upward as the sea…Read More
