1. Still No Cooldown in Northern Colorado Real Estate

    One half of 2022 is in the books and it has been an adventure to say the least.  At the beginning of the year it seemed as if it would be "business as usual" - fast paced market, huge gains and intense competition for very few homes, but inflationary concerns have led to almost a 2% increase in rates which might help the market cool down a bit for the rest of the year, however, there is still no …Read More

  2. Home Prices, Sales Still Strong Despite Interest Rates

    We are deep into the selling season, home values and sales are remaining strong across Northern Colorado despite a bump in interest rates.  Many of the closings in May represented contracts from the late March through April timeframe, before rates began to really increase, so June data will be much more telling.  Either way, sales and prices generally remained strong with limited inventory, and …Read More

  3. Home Prices Up 20%+ Across Northern Colorado

    It doesn't seem like rising interest rates, monkey pox or recession fears have slowed down the real estate market yet, if anything, these pressures are pushing buyers to act now by hustling to get their purchase under contract, beating out the hoards of buyers descending upon Northern Colorado. It'll take a well crafted offer, solid financing, and perfect timing to see a home, write an offer and b…Read More

  4. Home Values Are Already Stunning in 2022

    For buyers who expected (wished, hoped, or prayed) for any homes to purchase early in 2022, their expectations are not being met.  Another month of bottom-of-the-barrel inventory is pushing home values across the region to new heights.  Fort Collins is scraping the $600k mark, while Loveland/Berthoud is sitting pretty in the mid $500's and Greeley/Evans is now in the mid $400's.  As we work int…Read More

  5. Prices Climb 20%+ Across Northern Colorado in December

    Wow - What a year!  2021 started out pretty casually.  Many experts weren't exactly sure what to expect after a year of COVID made real estate extra interesting.  Even my own predictions were low.  I certainly wasn't able to predict the huge demand and rising prices we saw.  I expected 6-8% increases in real estate across the region, but when all was said and done, the entire region increased…Read More

  6. Prices Pop Across Northern Colorado

    As we near the end of the year when the market starts to relax a bit, sales and median home values must not have gotten the memo.  All 3 sub-markets I cover saw massive increases in median value due to extremely low inventory, low interest rates boosting demand, and a constant flow of eager buyers, willing to do whatever it takes to get into a home this year.  It's truly astonishing how few home…Read More

  7. Inventory Adjusts Downward, Prices Surge

    As the weather begins to cool, the Northern Colorado real estate market remains on fire as the region's prices continue upwards in the face of a prolonged supply shortage.  These September sales are the result of contracts placed on homes in the late-July through mid-August timeframe when the market had taken a small breather, but it seems like everything is just as busy and fast-paced as usual h…Read More

  8. Home Prices Trend Upward at Full Steam

    Can you believe it?  Another month with nearly 20% year over year increases across the board for home values in Northern Colorado.  It's hard not to sound like a broken record with my monthly updates: low inventory, high buyer demand, waived contingencies, above list price offers - it goes on and on.  Although we did see a slight uptick in the amount of homes for sale in June and July, it looks…Read More

  9. Home Prices Jump 20% Across The Region

    It's rare that you see 20%+ jumps in median value across the entire region, but because of high, high demand and further constrained inventory, the huge price jumps are here to stay.  The homes that closed in July were the result of contracts written in May and early June when abundant, eager homebuyers flooded the market and were met with only about 250 available homes to see across the entire F…Read More

  10. The 5 P’s of Selling Your Home

    Just because the low inventory market heavily favors sellers does not mean that selling your home is "easy".  In fact, it's much harder to expertly prepare your house for a sale, especially when you might expect 20-30 showings and a dozen offers.  If that's what you're expecting, then you need to be perfectly prepared and ready to take advantage of the demand.  If not, you'll be overlooked for …Read More
