Indian Peaks Real Estate Stats May 2017

 Indian Peaks Real Estate Stats May 2017

indian peaks lafayette coHere comes the summer and with it a slow in the marketplace. This has been something we have talked about consistently over the past few years. About the time June hits the spring market slows down and the Buyers thin out.

The inventory in Indian Peaks virtually the same as it was in May of 2016. However, the days on market has increased from 53 to 93 days to close a real estate transaction from list to sold. That is a 56% increase in the days on market! The absorption rate also shows the slowing in demand from one month of inventory in April and May of 2015 to over 2 months of inventory available today. The part that is strange about this is that we are seeing the slowing in demand through April and May, which is before the historic decline in demand when we normally see a slower June.

One thing that makes me think that demand is slowing is that prices are increasing to a point that make them more difficult for the average buyer to obtain. The homes that are still active on the market are pushing over the $600,000 mark. This is making it imperative that a home coming to the market has its best foot forward in order to entice the Buyer. That is more than simply being clean. Things like updates need to be considered. Considering the following updates is crucial to entice a Buyer to offer on your home. Some things to consider might be:

  • Flooring – is it dated? Could the wood floors be restained with a new more modern color, or are they the honey oak color? This color is out of style and turns off Buyers.
  • Trim – is it over painted, or dinged up? Its probably time to upgrade to a tall, flat plank.
  • Cabinets – are they the original McStain (which have likely yellowed like the floors)? This is a big deal to Buyers who want to move into a home and not worry about making updates. Do you price the home for a new kitchen, or do you replace the kitchen? These are serious questions.
  • Carpet – if the carpet is older than 5 years it is likely that it needs to be changed before selling.
  • Bathroom fixtures – if they are gold they are not in style anymore. These are easy fixes that don’t break the bank.
  • Ceiling fans and chandeliers – are they the original ones McStain put in with the house? If so, they should likely be updated.
  • How old is the roof? Many throughout the neighborhood are coming due for replacement.
  • Do you have any energy efficiency features that Buyers might be interested in such as solar, upgraded insulation, high efficiency furnace and air conditioner or new windows? These are popular with Buyers who don’t want to move into an uncomfortable home that is expensive to heat and cool.

Its best to do these updates slowly over time so that your budget isn’t overwhelmed by the to-do list. Call me and we can discuss a 24 month timeline for doing these updates slowly. I even have advice on getting some rebates for the energy efficiency items.

Indian Peaks Real Estate Stats April 2017

Indian Peaks Real Estate Stats April 2017

This month in Indian Peaks we have had an interesting start to the season. Inventory is definitely back up with 16 single family homes available to purchase, and only one that was sold in the month of April. Last month there were only 8 homes so inventory has almost doubled with the coming of spring.

Of the homes that are actively available on the market there are only two that come in below a $600,000 list price. That means that of the 16 homes available 80% of the homes will require a jumbo loan (or a large down payment) from the Buyer to purchase. This requirement narrows the number of qualified Buyers to purchase the property.

There are 7 homes available for Buyers to choose from that are listed between $600,000-$900,000 make up about 43% of the market. Of these homes, 3 of them have been on the market for over a month and 4 are new as of April.

April brought a 3 new million dollar plus homes to the market for a total of 6 custom homes available for Buyers to choose from. Its great to see the confidence of Sellers who now feel that the market has returned for their luxury homes. It’s easy to see why their confidence is growing with 3 homes under contract and 3 sold in this category through April, with an average price of $1,200,000. However, inventory has doubled in this category since February giving more choices for the Buyers in this segment.

It will be interesting to see how the Buyers respond to the choices and if price adjustments will be made to accommodate for the extra inventory. It would seem that these homes need to be very careful with the price per square foot so that they can be competitive in the market and entice the Buyers. Nine of these homes are currently listed for more than $200 per square foot with six of them over $210 for total square foot. There are four homes that are perched above $220 per square foot, which might be a bit high considering the inventory.

Because there is such a large inventory of premium homes which require specialty jumbo loans, my advice to Sellers would be to go through your home with a fine toothed comb. Bring in the contractors and handymen to refine things in your home. For starters, make sure that the wood floors are puttied and don’t have cracks, check the paint to make sure that there aren’t scruffs and that it looks fresh, consider replacing the carpet and deep clean everything (including windows! In the premium market the Buyer doesn’t want to feel like they need to move in and do updates. It’s my bet that the prettiest houses will win by obtaining Buyers first.

For information about how to prep your home for sale so that you can obtain the best return in with the shortest time on the market, please contact me directly. I have an 18 plan that I can share with you to give you ideas for refining your home and getting it ready for sale.

Indian Peaks March 2017 Real Estate Update

 Indian Peaks March 2017 Real Estate Update

This month throughout Indian Peaks we have seen the average price jump due to a higher priced sale in Eagle’s Nest. The median price is hovering around $569,000 which is a 5% increase since the beginning of the year.

For the past two months the average price per square foot has been at $225 in February and $218 in March. This is very strong compared to the dip that was taken throughout the fall and winter months when from July through December the average was only $184. We had been discussing the effect that the election had on prices through those months and now we can see that the Buyers are back with the spring time.

It’s interesting to note that the market through the fall months was at 0.98, meaning it would take less than one month for market demand to absorb all inventory if market conditions stayed the same and no more inventory came to the market. Since the beginning of the year the absorption rate has dipped a bit to 0.8 months of inventory, which is very similar but shows the increased demand (like the price per square foot) but in a different format.

For specific details about what your home is worth in this market, please contact me directly at 720-465-7005 or email me using the contact form on this page. Even if you are not thinking of selling for a year or two but would appreciate a market snapshot specific to your home, I’m available with no obligation. Looking forward to your call!

Blue Heron March 2017 Real Estate Update

Blue Heron March 2017 Real Estate Update

More great activity in Blue Heron – two homes quickly came on the market and found buyers quickly.  2528 Cowley was listed last fall and didn’t find a buyer but this spring, listed at $809,950 ($154/sf), a buyer snatched up this 6 bedroom, 4 bath home quickly at full price.  The other under contract home is 2527 Columbine Circle, listed for $899,000 ($177/sf) and had 3 offers within the first few days on the market.  However, this is a fickle market and many deals have fall apart, often due to the urgency buyers feel to new listings.  After a month on the market, this lovely home on a half acre lot, is under contract and set to close soon.

1767 Casey Court reduced the price to $1.095M but is now withdrawn from the market.
This leaves one last, beautiful home that is still available.  2544 Cowley Drive is listed for $859,900 ($173/sf) has terrific curb appeal and a main floor master.  The basement is unfinished but could easily be completed to add recreation room or another bedroom and bathroom.  Layout is great with the master on the main level with a 5-piece bathroom and fireplace in the room and then up the stairs leads to a landing that connects to the two large bedrooms that share a jack and jill bathroom.  To see photos or get more information visit www.BlueHeronForSale.com or you can contact Libby Boyd for a private showing.
