So far in 2024, the Northern Colorado real estate markets are experiencing sales levels similar to 2023, moderately rising prices, and rising inventories. There hasn’t been a “normal” year post-Covid for comparative analysis, so each new year presents unique challenges in understanding what’s happening. This year looks to be a continuation of the results and patterns we saw last year.

We’re now into the start of what has traditionally been our busiest season, and sales are a bit slower than we expected, most likely due to a combination of previous year’s price increases, high interest rates, the failure of wages to keep pace with inflation, and concern about the state of the economy. Price increases, though moderate, are likely driven by inventory levels that, while currently increasing, are less than optimal, along with some secondary effects of inflation and a bit of competition for the more desirable homes currently for sale.

Our best guess for now is that at least until fall, we’ll see results similar to what is currently happening. At this time, we don’t see any signs of major instability or stimulus at the local, regional levels or state-wide levels. But we’ll be closely monitoring the markets, and we’ll keep you informed and up to date. In the meantime, please give us a call if you have any questions or just want to chat about what’s happening – we’d love to talk to you.
