The first quarter is over and the Loveland Colorado residential real estate market is a little mixed. The total number of resalehomes sold compaired to the same period last year is down -8%. However the medial sales price is up +3% and the average is flat at a -1%. Bottom line is resale prices are holding desite volume being down a little.  It will be interesting to see how the next three months come in. New construction on the otherhand is still need a shot in the arm. Volume is down -46% and the median price is also down a -6%. A bright spot is that the average price is flat. When compared to the rest of the country, I'm glad I live in Colorado! Rob Proctor - Broker, At Home Realtors,   http://www.at-home-realtors.com

I'm seeing a notable increase in Blue Ribbon Home Warranty (BRHW) inspection requests in Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley Colorado area.    BRHW's are often purchased for home listings to help provide a marketable edge with warranty coverage on a listed home's major systems and appliances, protection for the seller and buyer.  A second benefit is a cursory limited inspection by a professional home inspector.  Either the market is picking up and/or more Realtors are using BRHW's to help market their listings.

Little Ronnie was peeking through the curtains as I pulled in front of the home.  While walking up to the door of this beautiful home, I was getting a sense of the shadows and lighting for the perfect shot.    I was greeted by a young lady who seemed very stressed and eager to let me do my work and leave.  She showed me around her home and pointed out the rooms that she would have me showcase in the virtual tour and politely excused herself as I proceeded to set up the tripod and gear.    The little boy approached and timidly looked up at me while keeping his chin down.     "Hello there big guy, what's your name?" I said.       He replied in a tiny and unsure voice "Wonnie."    Having two little girls of my own, I could speak fluent kiddish, and said "Well Ronnie would you like to help ...

Yes, homes are selling if they are in the right location, priced at market value, and are in great condition. I have personally had listings that had all three, go under contract in 40 to 50 days this year. Re-sale homes for the Loveland/Berthoud market areas are only down 3 % over last year. The Fort Collins/Wellington market is down 12% an improvement of 1% from last month. Greeley/Evans is up 6%, clearly on a rebound from last year. This is quite a comeback for Greeley.  Finally Windsor is seeing a correction from being up the past years is down 17% over last year. Northern Colorado new construction is still sluggish at 25 to 50 % down over last year. Fort Collins is the strongest market area and Greeley is the weakest.   Single Family Homes   (Resale market) January through November...

In May, I felt the Northern Colorado housing market had bottomed and we were poised for growth by the end of the year. It's amazing how fast things change.  The resale side of the housing market here in Northern Colorado has slowed a little. The good new is...we are better off then other parts of the country right now.  Well the third quarter is behind us. Most of the market areas are still down in volume.  Loveland resale market is still down 4% compared to last year. Fort Collins (13% decrease) made a 1 point improvement to over last month. Windsor has also improved over last month and is down -19% (a 5 point improvement). Greeley is the shinning star with a 4% increase over last year.    Home prices although down, isn't a big concern as it is elsewhere in the nation. We are seeing me...

The first half of 2008 is in the books. The good news  for Loveland Colorado is, our real estate market is better then other parts of the country. The bad news is we still haven't bottomed out yet. However we are very close on the resale front. We just need a little more patience. For resale in Loveland, the number of homes sold is only down 1% from the same time last year. The median price is down 5% and average price is down 2%.   We are continuing to flatten out and with-in 3 to 6 months should see a more positive resale market.

For the first five months the Loveland CO resale market is a little mixed. The number of homes sold (511 homes). is up 4% when compared to last year. However the median price is down 6% ($195,000) and the average price down 11% ($249,630). On the bright side, the median and average prices have improved since last month. It is still a great time to buy and sell in Loveland. Our office had three listings in a row that were under contract in 40 to 50 days. When the average days on market is 127 days, that was fantastic and our Seller's loved it. Rob Proctor Broker, At Home Realtors   http:\\www.at-home-realtors.com

Wondering how to get your home Sold in a challenging Buyer's market?  A key factor is in pricing it right.  What a home brought a year ago is not a valid price point today, in a constantly changing real estate market.  So what exactly is market value?  Let's start by understanding what market value is not.  Market value is not a tax assessed value, and it is not a replacement value.  Market value does not mean the price you paid plus the value of improvements, or what the home appraised for when you refinanced last summer.  Rather, market value is the value at which a Seller is willing to sell and at which a Buyer is willing to buy.  The market always determines the price, and the market is always changing. Value is affected by many factors: condition, location, obsoleteness of features...

As other parts of the country are seeing declines in the real estate market, not so for thy ReSale market here in Loveland Colorado. With four months of 2008 complete, the resale market for single family homes is in positive territory comparred to last year. From January through April, the volume of resales reached 373 homes. This is a 7% increase over the same period in 2007. This is great news. The median price is holding up better then the rest of the country too. At $195,000 this is only a 7% decrease. However, the average price has increased 2% over last year to $253,318. So if you are waiting to buy that home in Loveland, you might want to think again as prices may be on the rise by the end of the year.   Rob Proctor - Broker,  At Home Realtors http://www.at-home-realtors.com

Rare Opportunity- Main Floor Master with Separate Guest SuiteLocation: High Plains Village at CenterraRarely available main floor master floor plan in High Plains Village. This 3 bedroom (or 2 with office set-up) end unit has 2 master suites and fantastic views of the mountains. Open, bright & cozy best describes this elegant town home. The main living area is spacious with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, numerous decorative shelves (and did I mention views of the mountains?). The dining room and eat-in kitchen would be great for entertaining. A separate guest suite is all by itself on the 2nd level. With a vaulted ceiling, several mountain facing windows and a 5 piece bath arrangement, your guests will probably never want to leave. If you like garages (who doesn't) then the epoxy floor ...
