1. What Home Buyers Can Expect From Me

    The Northern Colorado real estate market is competitive, fast paced and fierce right now.  By all accounts, we will continue to see limited supply of homes for sale, and continued upward pressure on prices.  In this kind of market, it's important to work with a Realtor that you can count on to take you from beginning to end, minimizing the bumps and hurdles along the way.  When you work with me…Read More

  2. Homeowners Just Aren’t Moving

    In the Northern Colorado area, we've seen the inventory crunch for about 7-8 years now - more folks moving into town rather than leaving, less new construction coming on-line and people delaying their next move for a variety of reasons.  Within the last year, the national market is feeling that squeeze, too. You'll likely hear more and more news about the looming inventory crunch. There's a terri…Read More

  3. 2021 Starts Off Sizzling

    2021 has started off sizzling with big time increases in median values across the region and BIG sales figures, too.  January is typically a pretty calm and relaxed month.  Sales that close throughout the month were those started in the "no-man's land" timeframe between Thanksgiving and Christmas where there aren't many sellers out there.  In the COVID era, it doesn't appear that anything is go…Read More

  4. Craft Broker Coverage

    I've heard it before from clients, "I didn't know you sold here!" So, I want all of my faithful readers and followers to know, I've sold everywhere, man.

  5. How Homes Will Look After the Pandemic

    With the pandemic heading into its third wave, many homeowners have been spending much more time around their home throughout 2020.  This added time at home, along with the added burdens of work and school at home, is forcing homeowners and homebuyers to take a second look at what they value in a home.  With a cold, confined winter looming, homeowners and buyers are doing their best to make thei…Read More

  6. Record Home Prices in August

    Another month post-COVID and the Northern Colorado real estate market continues to scream ahead posting record home prices in August in Fort Collins and Loveland.  Not to be outdone, Greeley posted near record home prices in August as well.  The big boost was record low interest rates for purchases, providing a little bit more buying potential for those buyers who have been struggling to get a h…Read More

  7. 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

  9. 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
