Our two latest listings got under contract in less than a week. The Glenwood Springs Association of Realtors spokesperson Erin Bassett say they don't see it slowing down anytime soon... What does it mean for the market, and what should you do if you are thinking about selling your home?
The real estate market in the Roaring Fork Valley, the state of Colorado, and even the entire US, is widely considered to have recovered from the 2008 crisis. It's healthy and dynamic again, and we have experienced one of the biggest expansions ever recorded. The influx of people into Colorado has continued, and funnels a lucky few into our beautiful valley.
These trends result in a true seller's market in out area: from Aspen to Parachute, the inventory of homes for sale has rarely been so low! As market laws apply, demand is great and the availability is scarce. Houses sell quickly, and for a high price.
