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

  5. 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.
