Well I'm encouraged by the recent year-end sales statistics for the mountain area I call home. Just 35 minutes from Denver in the front range foothill communities of Evergreen, Conifer, Golden/Genesee, Indian Hills, Morrison and Pine, the overall impression I got is that we faired pretty good in a "down market". Most of the area only lost single digit percentages in median home values. The south side of Evergreen took the biggest hit losing 11.5%. This is to be expected since that area only lost 1% in value from 2007 to 2008 when values really took a hit all around. The number of sold homes versus 2008 were fairly even. Compared to hundreds of less homes sold in 2008 versus 2007....I'm pretty happy about these results.
2010 has started off busy for me. I've acquired 7 new buyer clients already and coupled with my pipeline from last year, I see a lot more sales in the area all around.
If anyone has questions about these numbers, please give me a call at 303-679-0360.
