1. Home Sales Post Huge Jump in July

    July was an absolutely stunning month for real estate sales in Northern Colorado.  Across the board, the region saw incredible increases over July 2019 sales figures while continuing to hold steady (or slightly gain) on median values as well.  The majority of the sales in July come from contracts that were executed late in May or through June, after all showing restrictions were removed.  Once …Read More

  2. 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

  3. Before COVID-19 Hit

    By now, you're probably maxed out with COVID news, but I want to remind you a simpler time: February.  Since we have a small lag in real estate reporting, due to data getting processed and uploaded to the masses, my statistics blogs always report the previous month.  Now, deep into March, amid a stock market collapse, a worldwide pandemic and social distancing, we can see what real estate in Nor…Read More

  5. 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. 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. Buoyed by strong demand and continually declining interest rates, b…Read More

  8. Real Estate Prices Continue Upward Trajectory

    It's been the same story for the last several months: increased competition, lack of available inventory, and continued low interest rates.  It's always interesting to see how the spring selling season will start, with a whimper or a bang.  This year, it's a bit in between the two.  So far through April, it's a bit of a mixed bag in the three markets I analyze.  In the more affordable markets,…Read More

  9. 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

  10. Home Prices Relax, Sales Still Down in Noco

    Now that we're past October and nearing the home stretch in 2018, Northern Colorado real estate is really a tale of two markets.  Furthermore, these markets are not necessarily easy to interpret.  The two separate markets are the "affordably priced" and the "not-so-affordably priced" homes.  Greeley/Evans is still affordable, whereas Fort Collins and the Loveland/Berthoud markets are still on t…Read More
