Fort Collins has received yet MORE praise, this time in the form of being the 3rd Best Performing City on the 2011 Milken Best-Performing Cities list. They judge this list on job and economic growth and sustainability of those factors. This should help bolster the real estate market here in town that has already been regaining traction all of 2011.
The biggest problem we have right now is the lack of inventory of homes, because there are many buyers out looking to spend their money and take advantage of all time low interest rates on properties whether it is for a home for their family or an investment property. Hopefully this good news, along with the article in the Coloradoan HERE that talks about the strength of our real estate market will give sellers more confidence to put their homes on the market.
If you know someone who is considering selling their home here in Fort Collins, but has doubts about how quickly it would sell, please have them give me a call so I can sit down with them and give them the real numbers that we are seeing and how things could be in their favor.
Happy New Year and I hope 2012 is a great year for all of you!
