Evergreen, CO Real Estate

A recap of the the last 12 months for Evergreen, CO real estate. as you can see by the chart below that represents the last 12 months of average sale price. If you look at June and January of this year those months the average sale price in Evergreen is just below $800k. We do need to keep in mind that there might not have been a great deal of sales those months to gather enough data. What the chart is telling us is that Evergreen, CO real estate is still going up in value. It has gone up and done but the overal trend is higher for the lastt 12 months.

The next thing we need to look at is the number of active listings. This month (June) is still not as high as last June but we are adding more active listings in Evergreen. We are still way below our number of active units 5 years ago. It is nice for buyers to see the inventory pick up. It is also nice for the sellers to the average sale price rise. This is a sign of a pretty healthy real estate market. It isn't often that you see supply increas along with an increase in sale price. That should make the folks buying today feel pretty confident that the home they are buyin is worth what they are paying.

The average days on market or DOM for Evergreen is a little more of the same story. If you look at may which was the month that homes just flew off the market. At just over 20 on the market you can see that was really a sellers month. Then June is turning out to be much longer time to sell. Just over 2 months is a very reasonable time frame to sell a home. Actually most buyers would prefer to have at least that much time to prepare for their move and to find another home. So just around 2 months is a sign of a good healthy market.

Evergreen DOM

So in conclusion we are still in a very fast moving healthy market. It is still in the seller's favor but we aren't seeing the sellers moving the market too much. They still control it but buyers have calmed a bit with the offers being way over asking price. So as alsway it is still a very good time to buy or sell in Evergreen, CO the real estate market has been pretty much the same for the last 12 months and isn't looking to be any different in the near term. Happy buyinng and selling and as always if you would like to talk real estate with an Evergreen, CO Realtor contact me anytime.

Realtors are a huge benefit

National Association of Realtors Statistics


According to the national association of Realtors has some great statistics on why everyone should use a Realtor to buy or sell their home. As of April of 2017 there are 1,236,5444 Realtors. If you break that down 65% of Realtors are sales agents, 22% are Brokers and the remaining 15% are associate brokers. All Realtors in the Denver Foothills area all agents are actually associate brokers including Evergreen, CO Realtors.

If you are planing on selling your Evergreen home for sale by owner you might be interested to know FSBO only accounted for 8% of total sales in 2015. The average sale price was $185,000 compared to $240,000 for agent assisted home sales. Only 33% of FSBO sales were contributed to yard signs so you will need to do a little more that sticking a sign in the ground.

Realtors know the market and understand how to properly price a home. It is very difficult to price a home in the foothills. There are no 2 homes or properties alike. They are much more different than say down the hill in Denver where most lots in a neighborhood are the same, all the home built the time, and pretty similar in many ways. It takes a professional figure out and to know if your 5 acres of unusable land is valued the same as 2 acres of usable land just down the road. Weather your view adds to your value and how much. Realtors know the area.

Realtors have a great network and technology that are at their disposal. Now not all Realtors in Evergreen and the Denver Foothills use this technology the way I do but they do have the option. It is kind of puzzling that some Realtors don't use technology when so many clients of mine find their dream home on my website. Not to mention how many sellers have had their homes found and sold from my website. The technology is there so it should be used.

Also keep in mind that not all real estate agents and brokers are Realtors. As a Realtor one must complete ethics classes, contract update classes and be in good standing. Knowing someone is a Realtor just gives that little added feeling of comfort in purchasing the biggest investment most people will make. Realtors take great pride in their industry and most are professionals and have your best interest in mind. So you will want to consider employing a Realtor for your next real estate transaction for no other reason than a piece of mind.

Denver Foothills Real Estate Market Update June 2017

Denver Foothills Real Estate Market News June 2017

I might as well just copy and paste the last 3 months of market news right here and just change the date. Inventory is still just low as can be. Last month in my Denver Foothills Market News Video I explained just how low inventory was and unfortunately we have not seen much of an uptick in the last few weeks. The first set of data I would like to share is the chart below with days on market (DOM) and number of active listings. If you look at July of 2012, AKA the good 'ol days, you will see we had 1,134 active listings. We currently have about 20%..yes I said 20% of that in active listing right now with about 218 listings in the Denver Foothills at the time this blog was written. Keep in mind these are listings for Evergreen, Conifer, Morrison and Bailey. Even last year the most active listings were in August with 423 units on the market.

This next chart is the same story as the last few months. At least as far as number of listings in the Denver Foothills. There is a slight contradiction in the supply and demand. Seems like buyers took a little break (as they usually do) over the winter months this year. If you see the decline in inventory from August to pretty much March but the DOM rose. Usually (in a seller's market like we have now inventory and DOM usually go hand in hand. Meaning since inventory was declining so should the  DOM. Again this might just be the seasonal cycle we usually see but still the two should be more closely related.

Active listing and DOM 12 month

The next chart is the average sale price (green) and the average list price (blue). You will notice that the average sale price has been hovering around 500K all year. Keep in mind we have a very small number of sales the last year compared to years past but it seems like prices are going to hold for the near future. We were hoping to get some more inventory this summer and that would certainly help confirm the current market levels. It would be nice to have a lot of comps as confirmation.

Denver Foothills 12 Month Market newsIn conclusion the Denver Foothills Real Estate Market is still lacking in inventory and still is in desperate need of more active listings. If to only give my poor buyers more choices. It is hard enough to find the perfect home in a market with high inventory. I still think all the Realtors in the Denver Foothills area think the same thing, now is a fantastic time to list!
