Real Estate Market Report • Fall 2015

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Fall is typically a time of year when real estate activity slows a bit. The summer selling season is winding down, most folks with school aged kids worked hard to complete their move during the summer so the sales volume slows once September rolls around. So when our team began to see signs of a cooling market this fall, it was tough to know whether it was the time of year, or an indication that market conditions are changing.  Showing activity on listings slowed, price drops became more common and we noticed some listings that we expected to sell in a matter days sit on the market for a few weeks or in some cases months. Is this just a fall flop or has our market peaked? Let’s check the numbers to find out.

Is affordable housing in Fort Collins disappearing?

Low inventory and rapid appreciation continue to characterize the Northern Colorado Real Estate market. The median sale price in the city of Fort Collins was $256,000 in the 4th quarter of 2013, while the 4th quarter of 2014 saw a median sale price of $286,000–that’s a 15.6% increase. It’s no wonder prices are up again when you see that the number of homes for sale at the end of 2014 is 20% less than it was a year ago.
