The Pending Home Sales Index failed to rebound from a cliff-dive in May, falling by another 3 percent more in June.  The index remains at record-low levels. A "pending home sale" is a home under contract to sell, but not yet closed. The data is culled from local real estate associations and large brokers and accounts for 20 percent of all purchase transactions in a given month nationwide. The Pending Home Sales Index is a future indicator for the housing market; there is a high correlation between the PHSI and the monthly Existing Home Sales report.  This is because of the relatively large sample set used for the PHSI, and because 80 percent of homes under contract close within 60 days, according to the National Association of Realtors. June's Pending Home Sales Index is weak by most me...

Denver Mortgage rates have been falling since April but that momentum could reverse tomorrow. The Bureau of Labor Statistics releases the July jobs report at 8:30 A.M. ET Friday. With a stronger-than-expected reading, mortgage rates should rise, harming home affordability in Colorado. Jobs are a keystone in economic growth and growth is tied to rates. Earlier this year, job growth went positive and reached as far north as 431,000 jobs created in May. That figure slipped negative last month, however, as the temporary, decennial census workers left the workforce. Jobs matter to the U.S. economy. Among other concerns, unemployed Americans spend less on everyday goods and services, and are more likely to stop payments on a mortgage. These effects retard the economy, spur foreclosures, and h...

For the second consecutive month, U.S. consumer confidence is plunging. July's official reading is its lowest since July of last year and the figures run in stark contrast to just two months ago, when the index touched a multi-year high. According to The Conference Board, July's figures are reflective of a more pessimistic consumer; one concerned about "business conditions and the labor market". Falling confidence numbers are presumed to be poor for the economy. For homeowner and home buyers in Denver , however, they can create opportunity.  Low confidence can influence the Denver CO mortgage market in a positive manner, driving mortgage rates down. Mortgage rates are already at their lowest levels of all-time. The link between consumer confidence and everyday mortgage rates roots in co...

Speechless Sunday Colorado is a terrific place to live.  If you enjoy outdoor activities, you can hike, swim, boat in the reservoirs, camp, hunt, horseback ride, explore, climb, ski, snow board, bike, walk, go white water rafting or fishing, play on golf, softball, tennis, baseball, soccer and rugby leagues.  Colorado has professional football, baseball, basketball, hockey and soccer teams. The weather is wonderful. We are able to experience all 4 seasons.  Yes, we can get a lot of snow, however since we get so much intense sunshine, it usually melts quickly.  It can also get quite warm in the summers, but with relatively no humidity, it isn't so bad.  And we really don't have mosquitoes to bother us. Earlier this week, we had a comfortable day in the low 90's and it cooled off to the m...

What do you do to relax? Yesterday I spent some time doing absolutely nothing.  I went to a nearby outdoor shopping mall, Southlands Mall, in Aurora, Colorado and decided to sit in front of the fountain and watch the kids playing in the water.  This was a nice relaxing hour for me.  I realized I should do this more often.  Tonight at the mall, a well know local Coloradoan, Hazel Miller, a blues/jazz singer will be performing here.  Come and relax.  Listen to the free music and enjoy some people watching at the same time!  After all, listening to music is the #2 way to shake off stress.  Southlands will have several more free concerts throughout the summer.                                                  And according to a recent survey the top 4 ways to shake off that stress were: 4) E...

Denver Metro Area Home Sale Cost to Taxpayers!   According to The federal home buying tax credit program cost taxpayers an estimated $46.2 million for homes that closed in the Denver area in May and June, according to an analysis by Inside Rea Estate News dot com The value of the homes purchased that would be eligible for the tax credits - up to $8,000 for first-time home buyers and $6,500 for qualified existing home owners buying up or down- is $1.45 billion! Local real estate offer mixed-opinions on whether the tax credit stimulus - a dollar for dollar write off, which is more valuable than a typical tax deduction - was worth it!  Nationwide, the total cost of the tax-credit program could be north of $20 billion, according to some estimates. This is just FYI only! Thanks.

Because we live in an incredibly beautiful state, Colorado locals are often concerned with protecting our environment. Although it can be easy to take water for granted, Aurora residents know that it's one of the state's most precious commodities. Thanks to the Prairie Waters Project (PWP), Aurora residents are preparing to reap the benefits of a state-of-the-art, environmentally-friendly water conveyance system designed to meet their community's needs in a unique way.   The PWP uses a “loop system” for reusing treated water. After being pumped through a unique riverbank filtration process, the water will be drawn through a 34-mile pipeline from the South Platte River to Aurora, where it will be re-treated at a traditional plant. Used water is then pumped back into the river, and the p...

As all residents on the East side of Denver know - driving on I-225 can be very challenging!    It does not matter when you are driving North or South or time of day --- it is just busy!     Aurora and Centennial have grown so much, the highway is just packed with commuters at all times of day, but especially during peak hours morning and late afternoon. Good news - the widening project is underway, which will widen I-225 from 2nd Avenue to Mississippi Avenue.    The project also includes a noise mitigation element along portions of I-225 within the widening areas.     This project is planned for completion in one year or so.    When complete, there will be three through lanes from I-70 South to Mississippi. While this project is in effect, expect some delays, but Colorado Department of...
