1. Running Out the Groundballs of Life

    This week, the great game of baseball played their annual mid-summer all star game showcasing some of the game's most talented athletes.  There were big hitters, crafty pitchers, and accomplished defensive stars.  I love baseball.  I've been playing it as long as I can remember.  I know there are plenty of folks out there that see it as a boring, long-winded hobby, but for those of you who tru…Read More

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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.
