Loveland CO has been a hot real estate market for several years. As the regional economy has prospered, population and employment have experienced significant growth, while housing availability has not kept pace. The result has been a case study in the basic economic concept of supply vs. demand. The essential indicator for starting to look at the current situation is Month's Supply of Inventory. i.e. how long it would take for all of the homes on the market to sell at the current sales rate. Anything below 3 months is considered a strong seller's market; above 6 months is considered a strong buyer's market; and in between lies a range where the market is tending towards a balanced state. Here's what MSI has looked like over the last 5 years for Loveland:      Seller's markets are chara...

This is the November 2017 Real Estate Market Update for Loveland CO Luxury Homes for Sale Luxury homes are special - they tend to be bigger and situated on larger lots in neighborhoods of similar homes; they are most often a custom design; and they offer high quality fixtures and finishes, top-of-the-line appliances, and unique design elements. While these homes are highly desirable, their price range* attracts a smaller buyer pool than other homes, and they take a bit longer to sell. Consequently, the luxury home market has slightly favored buyers over the last several years, so there's a good selection to choose from and prices are competitive. If you'd like to browse the current inventory, or are just curious about the homes on the market, check out Luxury Homes for Sale in Loveland ...

This is the November 2017 Real Estate Market Update for Loveland Colorado Two Bedroom Homes for Sale Once considered difficult to sell because they were too small for the average family, today two bedroom homes are now looked at as a reasonable alternative to town homes and condos, and have become popular with first-time home buyers, renters seeking the financial and lifestyle benefits of home ownership, and empty-nesters looking to downsize to a home that is more appropriate to their current needs. And as the data below demonstrate, they certainly aren't hard to sell. They are relatively scarce, though, making up only around 7% of all homes for sale. If your need for space is limited, you'll want to take a look at the available inventory of Two Bedroom Homes for Sale in Loveland CO.  T...

This is the November 2017 Real Estate Market Report for Homes for Sale in Loveland CO Sales:Counter to expectations, Loveland home sales rose in October 2017, up 6.1% to 192 homes sold from 181 in September 2017, but were down 1.5% from the 195 sold in October 2016. It’s doubtful that this is more than a random variation, and we still expect that sales will be declining over the next several months.  Prices:Loveland home prices rose in October 2017, with median price gaining 12.4% to $390K from $347K in September 2017, and average price gaining 7.3% to $428K from $399K in September 2017. Again, this is most likely a typical month-to-month variation in the prices of homes sold this month. The long-term trend line for Loveland home values continues to move upward.  Inventory:Inventory did...

Metrostudy predicts another year of housing start increasesMetrostudy, the Denver-based company that tracks residential real estate markets, predicts a 5 percent to 8 percent increase in residential housing starts in 2018 in the region encompassed by Larimer and Weld counties.One of the impediments to the market is the number of buildable lots. Weld County has 14.6 months of lots available at the current rate of use. Larimer has 14 months. Almost every county along the Front Range has a shortage of lots.Another impediment is the lack of construction workers, which slows progress on building sites. Normally, it might take three months to build a house. Now, the average is more like seven or eight months.These factors and others, coupled with in-migration that is far exceeding the supply ...
