Grateful For

Here’s something to be grateful for…

Colorado’s healthy real estate market!

The research continues to show that there is no better place to own real estate over the long term than right here in our own backyard.

The Federal Housing Finance Authority tracks real estate prices in close to 300 markets across the Country. We frequently use their Home Price Index as a trusted source to study the market.

According to their data, Colorado ranks as the #1 state for home price appreciation over the long term, better than any other place.

We are thankful for that!

Ranked!

The latest report from the Federal Housing Finance Authority is hot off the press. They rank 241 major metropolitan areas across the U.S. for yearly home price appreciation.

They show that, nationally, home prices have gone up 4.99% over the last 12 months.
Here’s how the major cities rank in Colorado among the 241:
 
#22 Greeley = 7.94%
#27 Colorado Springs = 7.64%
#63 Fort Collins = 6.34%
#133 Denver = 4.83%
#188 Boulder = 3.41%
 
** Interesting fun fact: In the WORST economy of our lifetime (2008 recession), home appreciation in Fort Collins only went down 2.2%. Compare that to places like Las Vegas that went down by over 35%! Now that’s a stable economy.**
