colorado: December closings in the Denver Metro area - 01/07/11 08:25 AM
Taking a look at the Denver Metro's December 2010 statistics and comparing them, December numbers looked pretty good. Closed sales were up over November and slightly up year-over-year. There were 3,024 home closings in December 2010, a 13.4% increase from the 2,666 in November 2010 and a 2.2 percent increase from the 2,959 in December 2009.
These figures confirm what we’re seeing in the field. The market is moving counter-seasonally and growing stronger as we move into the depths of winter. That’s not the norm. Agents are busier than usual right now. That said, December under contracts were surprisingly weak.

Hornung: A windshield-view of the market
Lane Hornung, president and co-founder of 8z Real Estate. Lane Hornung, being a statistical guy, typically likes to look at real estate statistics on a year-over-year basis, rather than by consecutive months.
After all, month-to-month data can be influenced by seasonal impacts, regardless of any other factors impacting the market, so a year-over-year perspective typically provides a better apples-apples comparison of where the market is standing.
But this fall it’s a different story.
Hornung, president and co-founder of Boulder-based in a conversation last week, said that because of the tax-credits that … (0 comments)
