Little About Colorado Springs Market
Where is the Colorado Springs Market Heading? I am no statistician by any means, but one can't define the market without looking backwards at the prior month's statistics to determine with any certainty where the market is headed.
Great news for the overall market last month partly fueled by the Government Tax Incentive and historical low Mortgage rates falling below 5%, Colorado Springs has experienced a fantastic month. Both the Average Sales Price and Median Sales Price increased 6.8% and 3.9% increased over May 2009.
When comparing the supply and demand the sold inventory has increased 14.2% and the active listings were only up 8.7%. Not very surprising entering the "Summer Selling Season" as inventory historically increases during the summer; but it is to be expected.
While the overall inventory has been higher the last three years many positive elements are on the horizon. Many military personal are starting to return back to Fort Carson and Peterson Air Fore Base. That will have a dramatic impact in the local economy. Factor in the low interest rates and I expect the market to continue heading in a positive direction. Short Sales and Foreclosures are accounting for just over 25% for the home sales so some great opportunities are available for the Buyer currently entering into the market.
