How's the Market in CO?

What We Notice in Answering "How's the Market in CO?"

How's the Market in CO?

Here are some observations we have about the market right now:

  • Inventory is up, price reductions are up, the length of time to sell a home is up.
  • The Buyer asking the Seller to pay concessions are more prevalent
  • Sellers are more willing to accept contingent offers (especially in higher price ranges)
  • If a home doesn't sell within a week, it often becomes stigmatized by the market and potential buyers assume there must be something wrong with it.
  • Homes that likely would have sold within hours a year ago, are now sitting on the market
  • Condition is super important as buyers become even more picky. 
  • Pricing a property correctly on day one is paramount
  • Sellers who over-price their property are finding themselves chasing the market. 

So how many Americans own their own home vs paying rent?  The most recent Census showed 64.2%. This number is showing stability after many years of change. In 1996, home ownership started increasing.  In 2005 it reached as high as 69.5%.  In 2008, the rate started declining back to the pre-1996 levels of 64%.

So today it's back to what seems to be "normal" based on the long-term average.

Greeley-Weld HABITAT FOR HUMANITY – Why they build

Greeley-Weld Habitat for Humanity

Working in partnership with this great organization is exciting and will be a rewarding experience in the close future. Good things to come.

• 1 in 5 children in the US live in a family who resides in extremely poor conditions. In my years of experience in real estate, I have witnessed this more than once.
• 71% of families with extremely low incomes are spending more than 50% of their income on rent and utilities
• Due to the shortage of affordable housing, families are having to choose between rent over food, health care and basic necessities.
• $49.03/hour or $102,000 annually is the average income needed to buy a home in CO
• $49,780 annually or $23.93/hour is the wage required to afford fair market rent for a 2-bedroom apartment in Colorado ($1245). 
• The median home price in Greeley/Evans has risen 131% since 2011 from $130,000 to $304,900. Home ownership is becoming unattainable for many families and especially for modest-income households.

Greeley-Weld Habitat for Humanity has built 139 homes since 1987.

At the annual breakfast, Dick Monfort, owner and CEO of the Colorado Rockies talked about his passion for this organization. The event reminded me how appreciative I am for our home and to never take anything for granted that it will always be there.

Selling our home was emotional and stressful. Bev made the entire process much easier! Her marketing expertise was amazing! We thoroughly appreciated her communication -- she touched base with us almost daily. She helped stage our home, created terrific marketing videos, flyers, website, and more. We could not have asked for a more professional realtor. Thanks, Bev! Jaydine R.
