A Word From a Homie Expert

Phillip Kranefuss, our Head of Real Estate in Colorado had this to say about the market:

“This late year slowdown is not a surprise. We’ve seen the same dynamic almost every year in this low inventory / high demand market cycle that started back in 2013. 

Listings inventory ticks up slightly while the buyer heat ebbs in the latter half of the year. The big question is whether the buy-side demand will pick up aggressively at the start of the new year, staying consistent with previous years’ trend, or will we see a break in the patternperhaps indicating that we are entering a new market cycle.”
