Sign Surprise

Given how active our market is today and has been over the last few years, many people assume that virtually every home with a “For Sale” sign in the front yard is already under contract.

They are surprised to learn that, in most cases, the “For Sale” sign does indeed represent a home that is actively for sale.

For example, today in Fort Collins there are 655 single-family homes on the market.  290 of these are under contract and will be closing soon.  365 of these are still active.

So, 56% of the signs in Fort Collins are in front of homes that are still available.

Here are the specific numbers for each of our Northern Colorado markets:

  • Fort Collins = 56%
  • Loveland = 57%
  • Windsor = 58%
  • Greeley = 41%
