Fort Collins CO Real Estate Market Update - January 2017

Real Estate Broker/Owner with New Paradigm Partners LLC EB #1326335

This is the January 2017 Real Estate Market Update for Fort Collins CO



Fort Collins CO Home Sales December 2016

Home sales rose 7.4% in December 2016 to 218 homes sold, up from 203 sales in November 2016, but down 12.8% from 246 homes sold in December 2015. Looking at the entire year, 2016’s 3,010 sales were 2.5% less than the 3,086 sales in 2015, and 5.7% less than the 3,183 sales in 2014.




Fort Collins CO Home Prices December 2016

Home prices climbed again in December 2016 - the median price rose 2.0% to $365K from $358K in November 2016, and the average price rose 1.3% to $404K from $399K in November 2016. While these numbers show the prices of those specific homes that sold during the month, the long-term trend line indicates that home values are continuing to rise.




Fort Collins CO Home Inventory December 2016

Inventory fell again, as is expected for this time of year, dropping 13.0% in December 2016 to 315 homes for sale, down from 356 at the end of November 2016. The Month’s Supply of Inventory (MSI) fell to 1.4 months, indicative of a strong seller’s market.




2016 was an interesting year for the Fort Collins real estate market. Home sales were lower than the previous two years, but not because of a lack of buyer demand - a persistent shortage of homes available for sale not only depressed sales activity, but also gave impetus to a steady and significant increase in home values. Looking ahead, there are no regional factors that would suggest a slowing of demand - regional job growth is expected to remain strong, so it would appear that the best prospects for seeing a more balanced market would have to come from homeowners finally being sufficiently incentivized by rising prices to offer their homes for sale and enter the market as “move-up” buyers themselves. We’ll be looking for signs of that in early spring, 2017.

Hi Dick -- it's that inventory thing again, right?   We can't sell what we don't have. With a little more than a month's worth of homes available for sale in Fort Collins, prospective buyers(and sellers too) will benefit from you vast knowledge and insight.  Not just for the local picture but more globally as well.

Love the photo you have used of Old Town.  What a great place.  Fort Collins is still such a popular place to call home.

Dick, I like your summary in this report.  It makes 100% sense.  We are seeing strong seller markets in so many areas across the Nation.  Not all … but many.

Hi Dick, our Vancouver WA market stats seem to mirror many of yours; with sales of pre-owned homes strong but, the level is flattening as I think like Ft. Collins, we are at Capacity.  Best of succes in 2017!  John and Kat

December numbers up sounds good and probably the result of those wanting to close by the end of the year. 2017 is going to be good.
