1. Real Estate Market Accelerates Early in 2021

    Two months into 2021 and it feels like we're already in the peak of the summer selling season.  Within the last month, interest rates started to slowly creep up which put pressure on desperate buyers to hustle and submit offers on whatever inventory was available.  The lack of inventory is unprecedented throughout the region as fewer and fewer homeowners are selling.  I'd say now we're at a cri…Read More

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. Sales Stay Strong into December

    November was another strong "carry-over" month for real estate in Northern Colorado as strong demand for available homes coupled with low interest rates kept sales strong.  Since March, April and most of May were stifled by the pandemic restrictions, we're seeing a lot of carry over as demand still stays quite strong through the cooler months of the selling season.  Typically, we see a drop off …Read More

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. Home Sales Post Huge Jump in July

    July was an absolutely stunning month for real estate sales in Northern Colorado.  Across the board, the region saw incredible increases over July 2019 sales figures while continuing to hold steady (or slightly gain) on median values as well.  The majority of the sales in July come from contracts that were executed late in May or through June, after all showing restrictions were removed.  Once …Read More

  9. How Quickly Are Homes Selling?

    Hello fellow nerds.  Ready for a deep dive? I'm sure you are...Let's go! Instead of relying on the standard "days on market" number that is most commonly reported, I like to follow the "days til offer" (DTO) to truly understand how quickly our inventory is moving.  The reason I like looking at DTO instead of DOM is because days on market can vary for so many different reasons.  The closing time…Read More

  10. June Sales Soar, Prices Hold Steady

    June sales data represents the beginning of the post-COVID real estate market in Northern Colorado.  And good gracious, did real estate come back with force after the shelter at home restrictions were eased.  Across the board, sales were up double digits, and prices even grew in most markets - these sales were the result of contracts written in the late April/Early May timeframe.  As showing re…Read More
