It is no surprise that Colorado’s Front Range has seen a significant population boom over the past several years that has impacted local and regional housing markets. As presented in Illustration A, housing markets in Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties have shown an upward trend in median home sale prices over the past five years (12 month rolling values). How much of a trend you might ask? From January 2011 to December 2016, median sale prices for Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties increased 41%, 49%, and 64%, respectively. Just in the past year (December 2015 through December 2016), median sale prices for Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties increased 5%, 9%, and 8%, respectively. While new construction is helping to alleviate some demand, this upward trend in prices will likely continue through 2017 as inventory remains low and demand remains high. Illustration B presents the impact that buyer demand is having on the available inventory in Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties.
What does all of this mean for home sellers and home buyers? Home sellers can take advantage of the inventory shortage and generally sell their homes for a premium. Home buyers may pay more for a home in this market; however, taking advantage of lower interest rates, building equity (vs renting), and homeowner tax deductions are all advantages for buyers. Please contact me today to find out how your neighborhood compares to these county trends and to see if selling or buying a home is right for you.
