Denver, CO ranks No. 3 in home appreciation - The median price of a Denver-area home rose 14.4% in March, compared with March 2009, ranking it No. 3 when compared to 20 other metropolitan statistical areas tracked by the National Association of Realtors.  The main reason that the median prices are up is because more sales are occurring at higher price points than in the spring of 2009, said Jeff Thredgold, the economist for Vectra Bank in Colorado.  Read full article:http://insiderealestatenews.com/2010/04/exclusive-denver-ranks-no-3-in-home-appreciation/ What is your Denver CO home value?

  92% of homes sold priced below $500,000 in the Denver area - An analysis of Metrolist data by independent broker Gary Bauer shows in the eight-county Denver area, almost 93% of the homes sold and closed in the first quarter were priced below $500,000.  “The biggest change that I see is that in 2008 and 2009, homes priced below $100,000 accounted for a much bigger part of the overall housing market than in 2010,” Bauer said.  ”First, there are just not as many homes priced below $100,000 out there.  All of the activity is no longer at the low-end.  We are seeing more activity in the $200,000 to $300,000 range and the $300,000 to $400,000 range.”       Full article: http://insiderealestatenews.com/2010/04/92-of-homes-sold-priced-below-500000-in-the-denver-area/ What is your Denver CO ho...

Fed: Low Rates Likely Through 2010 - In at least two recent presentations, Federal Reserve policymakers hinted that interest rates are likely to remain low into 2011.  These indications came one week after the Fed shut down its program to buy mortgage-backed securities, which had kept rates at or near record lows in recent months.  Michael Fratantoni, vice president of research and economics for the Mortgage Bankers Association, predicts that the Fed will have created a situation where there are days or weeks of low-rate opportunities, and other days and weeks when rates rise significantly.http://www.realtor.org/RMODaily.nsf/pages/News2010040901   What is your Aurora CO home value?

  April 5, 2010 The Housing Market Update The Mortgage Network   Vacation Home Sales ReboundWhen the housing market started to head in the wrong direction, vacation homes led the way.  Since they were not the borrower's primary residence, these properties were dumped on to the market first.  So, it is great news that we can now see a reversal in that trend.The National Association of Realtors reported that vacation home sales jumped 7.9 percent from 2008 to 2009 in their 2010 Investment and Vacation Home Buyers Survey. The big news is that 90% of the vacation home purchasers were buying the property as a true vacation home and not for investment purchases.  Previously, wild speculative buying of vacation properties for the purpose of selling it again in the future was a large reason fo...

CSU-mortgage lenders’ housing survey sees a ‘stable’ year - Colorado’s housing market is expected to stay “relatively stable” in 2010, according to results of a Colorado State University survey released Friday.  Sixty-seven percent of respondents to the CSU survey about how the housing market will fare this year said they believe it will improve or stay the same as 2009.  “This is promising, but lenders remain concerned about how federal regulations, local job growth and regional economic development might affect housing,” Steve Laposa, Everitt center director, said in a statement.http://www.bizjournals.com/denver/stories/2010/03/22/daily68.html?s=industry&i=resi_real_estate   What is your Colorado home value?
