January 2013 Larimer County Real Estate Inventory

The Total Inventory of Properties available for sale as of December was 2,026, down -0.4% from 2,035 last month and up 0.5% from 2,015 in December of last year. December 2012 Inventory was at a mid range compared to December of 2011 and 2010. The Average Days On Market for December was 86, up 11.7% from 77 days last month and down -13.1% from 99 days in December of last year. The December 2012 Average Days On Market was at its lowest level compared with December of 2011 and 2010.

Looking at the overall numbers for Larimer County, it is pretty apparent that 2013 was a year of recovery for the housing market. Even though December was slow, and expected seasonal occurrence, sales were up for the year over 20%, and prices trended upward steadily. The only worrisome indicator is low inventory, which certainly contributed to the price increases, but left a moderately unbalanced market. We're certainly optimistic about the prospect for the coming year - the regional economy has shown steady improvement and some job growth, and we're hopeful that potential sellers will respond to improved market opportunities for their homes.

We will see some decent activity during the remaining months of winter, as buyers respond to what are still good opportunities to take advantage of low interest rates. Seller who expect to attract their interest will need to price their homes well, prepare them for viewing, and market them effectively.

Without your excellent analysis, I would have thought differently about the report from the graphs.  Good job, Dick!

Hi Dick,  Looks like December was down just a bit but that is usually to be expected over the holidays.  It will bounce back

Dick, I guess people are more interested in skiing than house hunting in December.  You'll have a terrific Spring.

Similar to other results with less homes sold in December but less homes for sale. it is good to see that number of being up 20% for the year though
