Colorado Springs Housing Market Fall 2015

I was doing a bit of market research lately and found some information you might find helpful.

The expert analysts over at Keeping Current Matters have filed their report for the Fall of 2015, and it appears things are looking up in real estate.

According to numbers gathered by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), home prices have risen in every region since this time last year.

The FHFA report shows that every state is appreciating at a different rate. While some states are experiencing more rapid appreciation than others, there is a very good chance your home has gone up in value regardless of where you live.

prices up.PNG

The above map is just a general overview of home appreciation by state. To get a more specific idea of how much your home has appreciated, I recommend contacting me for a FREE market analysis.

You might be surprised by how much your home is really worth. As home prices recover, and even rise above their pre-recession levels, the market will begin to normalize.

sell sell sell.PNG

According to the Home Price Expectation Survey, by the end of this year, values will have appreciated by 4.1%. Next year, prices are expected to rise 3.7% before flattening to just over 3% from 2017 to 2019.

This expected slowdown in home appreciation is the result of a normal, healthy market.

As a homeowner, now is a great time to cash in on the equity you’ve built in recent years. With interest rates as low as they are, there is no better time to sell your current home for top dollar and lock in an incredibly low rate on your new one.


Obviously, whether you’re ready to sell is ultimately up to you. I just wanted to let you know how favorable the market is for sellers right now.

If you’ve been waiting for ideal market conditions to sell, it won’t get much better than this.

Again, if you’re simply curious about how much your home’s value has increased in recent years, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Or, if you’re unsure about what to do and would like more information about the Colorado Springs market, give me a call or shoot me an email! It’s my job to keep you in the loop with what’s going on in our area, and I would love to hear from you!

I hope you found this information helpful!
