Northern Colorado Economic Forecast for 2017

2017 Crystal Ball

2017 Crystal Ball

Last week Windermere’s Chief Economist Matthew Gardner joined us for our annual Market Forecast events in Northern Colorado.

Here are some of the big takeaways that we shared:

  • Interest rates will increase to 4.6% by the end of the year
  • First-time buyers are back and will make up 47% of all buyers in 2017
  • Inventory will remain at record lows and will continue to drive up prices
  • Appreciation is expected to be between 9% and 7% accross our Front Range markets
  • Home builders will get creative in order to hit lower price points – we will see more “tiny homes” and more homes without basements

Seasonal Slowdown

 

Weekly Fun Facts

Weekly Fun Facts

August marks the end of the busy real estate selling season and the beginning of the traditional seasonal slowdown in our market.

The four months of April, May, June and July tend to produce 45% of the year's total sales. This is based on looking back at 5 years of data.

If 2016 holds true to form, the next five months from now until the end of the year will be progressively slower.

No surprise that December tends to be the slowest month with a third of the number of sales compared to a typical July.

Here's what we will be watching closely over the next few months – is this year's seasonal slowdown "normal", or, because the market has been so hot this year, is it breaking traditional trends.

We will be sure to keep you informed!
