Mother Nature decided to have spring-like weather for us early this year and the Real Estate market decided to follow her lead with an extremely strong January.
February proved to be another strong real estate market in Boulder County but we are beginning to see some leveling.
New listings in 2017 were consistent with what we saw in 2016 with 335 new listings. We did see a fall in Sold listings of 12% even though inventory is slightly up this year. Even with this drop we still only have 1.4 months of inventory, which still indicates a strong Seller’s market.
As is common when a market begins to plateau we are seeing Buyers being slightly more price sensitive, which is indicative of average sales price for this year only increasing 2.6% as compared to last year. This number is more in line with what we experience in a balanced market. We saw a strong decrease in Days on Market from 64 days to 55 days, which when we look closer we see that homes that are priced well are going under contract quickly.
The Percent of List Price Received 1.2% drop to 99.5% gives insight into the shifting mindset of Buyers. This is still a very strong number but does indicate a slowing in homes selling for over asking price.
The most common question I’m asked is, “When is the best time to sell my home?” Here is your answer, spring! Anytime from late February through mid-May is the best time to list your home. Here is why:
The peak of real estate season is usually early summer in Colorado. Many families wait until the end of the school year before listing their home. In late May and early June, there is an influx of homes for sale.
More inventory is good for buyers, but sellers looking to maximize the value of their home are better served when they beat the competition to the market. Right after the winter holidays, serious Buyers start looking at homes for sale online. By February they have a good idea of their price range and desired area.
