1. Inventory Returns as Spring Heats Up

    Last month, I painted a pretty dire picture of what 2019 could look like if buyers continued to sit on the sidelines, waiting out the lowest of the low inventory.  And just like that, buyers are back in full force,  home sale figures are (generally) up, and inventory levels are up, too.  Another added bonus, interest rates are down from the 3rd and 4th quarter of 2018, making the springtime a v…Read More

  2. Fewer Homes Are Available in Northern Colorado

    It looks as if both home buyers and home sellers decided to really take some time off over the holidays - near record low sales in January were the result of very few purchase contracts written in the Thanksgiving through Christmas time frame.  Traditionally, January is the month with the fewest sales and 2019 kept right on trend. Much of the lower sales numbers can also be attributed the fact th…Read More

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. Home Prices Are Heating Up

    We're past the halfway point of the year and with the weather, home prices are heating up.  Granted, home prices have been heating up in the middle of the winter too, however, we've reached some really astounding milestones in all three markets.

  8. June 2017 NoCo Real Estate Market Update

    As 2017 unfolds, we are starting to see a really interesting development in Northern Colorado.  As building remains tight, inventory of new construction homes and resale homes, for that matter, are hard to find throughout the region.  I'm keeping my eye on the Loveland/Berthoud market, one of the areas where building is relatively strong, especially in the low to mid range markets.  This is kee…Read More

  9. The Craft Broker Difference – I’m Not “Salesy”

    It's a unique market out there.  In Fort Collins, the average home price sits at $400,000.  Median prices have increased over 8% year over year since 2013, which means if you owned an median home in 2013, you now have an additional $95,857.33 in equity IN JUST THREE YEARS.  Times are great for NOCO home sellers, right? Well, it really depends on how you look at it.  There is a huge paradox fo…Read More
