"Comming soon" is another way of saying "pocket listing" or "private listing". I believe it is a disservce to both the seller and the public, as it resricts potential buyers and benifits only the listing broker to the detriment of other Realtors and the public. If the National Association of Realtors truly have a code of ethics this practice would be labled as unethical and banned in its entirety.

Get the 5% grant for home buyers in Loveland Colorado! No repayment and no first time buyer requirement!     The NHF Platinum program helps home buyers in Loveland Colorado with down payment and closing costs up to 5% of the sales price of your home.     The home you are purchasing must be your primary residence, but unlike many other down payment assistance programs, there are no first time home buyer requirements.

Here is the June 2014 Real Estate Market Report for Loveland CO   Home sales in Loveland rose 11.6% in May 2014 to 183 homes sold, from 164 in April 2014, but are down 21.9% from 223 homes sold in May 2013. It is good to see sales rising, but we expect that at this time of year. More worrisome is the fact that 2014 sales are lagging considerably from last year’s strong showing.   Prices of homes increased in May, with Median Price at $280K, up 4.5% over April 2014 and up 17.2% over May 2013.

This is the April 2014 real estate market report for Hunters Run Loveland CO   Hunters Run is off to a fairly slow start - only 5 homes have sold so far in 2014, ranging from a low of $215 to a high of $385,000, with a median price of $347,500 and an average price of $327,800. Market performance has been good, with an average days to offer of 51 and average days on market of 80. These 5 homes sold for an average of 99.1% of list price. The primary reason for the low number of sales is the lack of available inventory - there just haven't been that many Hunters Run homes available for sale.       Address: Style: Sq.Ft.

This is the April 2014 Real Estate Market Report for Boise Village Loveland CO   So far in 2014, only 5 homes have sold in Boise Village, ranging in price form a low of $188,000 to a high of $225,000, with a median price of $208,150 and an average price of $204,630. Average days to offer was 55 days and average days on the market was 87. The Sale Price/List Price Ratio was at 99.1%, with home values continuing to be stable.

This is the April 2014 Real Estate Market Report for Loveland CO     Home sales increased 28.1% in March 2014 to 132 homes sold, from 103 in February 2014, but dropped 24.2% from 164 homes sold in March 2013. It appears that Loveland is off to bit slower start of the busier spring real estate season than last year, but we’ll need another couple of months to get a better feel for how this will play out.   After last month’s sharp drop in prices - which we characterized as an anomaly - March saw prices return to the more normal upward-trending levels of the recent past. Median Price rose to $258K, a gain of 17.8% over the $219K of February 2014 and also a gain of 9.8% over the $235K of March 2013. Average Price rose to $305K, a gain of 20.1% over February 2014’s $254K, and a gain of 9.3%...

This is the Loveland CO Real Estate Market Report for March 2014 Home sales jumped 30.4% in February 2014 to 103 homes sold from 79 in January 2014, but down 6.8% from 110 homes sold in February 2013. This increase is encouraging, particularly after the drop last month, and signals the start of the busier spring season. However, we’re going to need another couple of month’s data to get a feel for what 2014 is going to look like. Price data for February is an anomaly - Median Price plummeted to $219k from $261K in January, and Average Price fell to $254k from $308K. However, the February numbers are still better than a year ago, and a look at the chart to the right shows a history of monthly variation. It is worth repeating that these numbers reflect only those homes sold in February 20...

Every once in a while, we get involved in a transaction that is so completely different and challenging that its novelty alone throws it up there among our all-time favorites. We were involved in one of those many years ago that could have been a nightmare, but because of a great owner, was instead a learning experience and, eventually, a successful close.   Click on photo to view property flyer   We got a call to come talk to the owner of a property, we'll call him Victor, about a possible listing. What we found was a beautiful 35-acre hidden valley in the near foothills west of Loveland, completely fenced into pastures and paddocks. There was a 90 X 55 industrial metal building that had been divided into thirds. One section was a very nicely done two-story, one bedroom apartment, flan...
