This is the Loveland Co Real Estate Market Report for February 2016 Sales:As we would expect, January 2016 sales were down, falling to 96 sales, a drop of 73.9% from 167 sales in December 2015. However, those December sales were an unusual spike, making the usual lower January activity appear more dramatic than it probably was. We expect to see sales increase normally over the next several months. Prices:Home prices increased in January 2016, with the median price rising to $313K, a scant 0.3% increase from December 2015’s $312K. Average price also rose, rising to $358K, up 5.6% from $339K in December 2015. We don’t attach a lot of significance to these monthly numbers, as they just reflect the specific homes sold in a particular month. But the long-term trend line shows an unmistakable...
