Decline in Colorado Springs Foreclosures

by Alan Daniels

​Colorado Springs Foreclosures are down 11% from last month according to an article in The Gazette and are on a roll to be at the lowest level in 14 years.  This is a great sign for the market and is a product of the much improved Colorado Springs real estate market.  A better job market, increased property values, lack of supply, and increase in housing demand are the main reasons for this great news.

This is bad news for investors trying to find Colorado Springs Foreclosures and Short Sales but if they use the right tools to get a jump on listings they should have a chance.
