It was homecoming weekend at CSU which means that alums from all over the Country were back to visit Northern Colorado.
So how does their real estate market stack up versus the place where they went to college?
Odds are, it’s not as good!
It turns out that there are only 9 metropolitan areas out of about 270 that have higher appreciation than Larimer County.
Interestingly, 3 of the 9 are in Washington and 2 of the 9 are in Oregon. So if they are visiting from the Pacific Northwest they probably have an even stronger market than here.
But pretty much everywhere else is below our market.
This is all according to the Federal Housing Finance Authority who tracks the nation’s real estate markets. They show that Larimer County has appreciated 12.08% in the last year which ranks 9th in the nation.
First place belongs to Mount Vernon, Washington at 15.14%. Last place is Atlantic City, N.J. which had a decrease of 0.77%.
CSU’s comeback in their homecoming game was amazing, and cheers to a healthy real estate market!
