Boulder Area Residential Stats for August

Highlights that I noticed?

Lafayette year-to-date sales are up 28.7%

Number of active listings in Longmont is DOWN almost 40%!

Condo/Townhome/Duplex sales in Longmont are UP 54.6%

Denver home prices predicted to rise 3.3% this year

Colorado Home Prices Predicted to Climb

Veros Real Estate Solutions, a leading private forecaster for the mortgage industry, projects home prices will appreciate in Colorado over the next 12 months. Helping boost this projection is was Freddie Mac reported new record lows for fixed U.S. mortgage rates. The average on the 30-year loan dropped to 3.62 percent- the lowest since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s. This will provide prospective buyers with more incentive to brave a modestly recovering housing market.

Veros predictions bolster a rule of thumb that every housing market is different and is contingent upon its own specific economic factors.  A look at Veros’ forecasts of the top five major U.S. metropolitan housing markets in the coming year:

Strongest:

1.    Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, Ariz., 6.4%

2.    Boise City-Nampa, Idaho, 3.8%

3.    Boulder, Colo., 3.6%

4.    Bismark, N.D., 3.5%

5.    Denver-Aurora, Colo., 3.3%

Longmont-area Realtors optimistic for 2012 – Longmont Times-Call.

This article echos what I’ve been experiencing as well… there just aren’t enough homes for sale. Low inventory is good for Sellers, and 30 year fixed interest rates at 3.75% is just unbelievable for Buyers.
