1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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

  8. The Paradox of Today’s NOCO Home Sellers

    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
