Beazer Homes is pulling out of Colorado!

by Alan Daniels
That's right, Beazer Homes is pulling out of Colorado! They were the eighth largest new home builder in the nation when they moved into the Colorado market in 2001. They have fallen on some tough times with a full investigation on mortgage fraud and over extending into different areas. Their stocks have dropped by 80 percent to less than $7.00 a share. Beazer Homes has said that they will pay all of their bills and honor all warranty obligations in the area. Keep in mind that there is no guarantee if they are not around in the future though. This is yet another reason on why an experienced Realtor can help advise you on New Home builders in Colorado Springs. A seasoned real estate agent has experience with all of the builders in town and usually gets a jump on issues like this. You can still find their Colorado Springs new homes in Claremont Ranch, Lowell, Soaring Eagles, Sweetwater Ridge, The Gables, and Wolf Ranch. There could be some good deals to come in order for them to move out quickly. Get with a Realtor to see if this would be the right move to meet your needs.

It's almost that time of year again!  I am already getting excited about the 2008 Parade of Homes in Colorado Springs. It is always fun to see how the latest new homes in Colorado Springs are designed. The unique architecture, landscaping, design touches, and communities showcased in the Parade tend to offer a good taste of what new home construction in Colorado Springs is all about for 2008.
 
Flying Horse and Banning Lewis Ranch are the two main sites to visit this year for the Parade of Homes.  There are a total of 29 new homes in the Parade with 11 of the homes over 1 million dollars. The Colorado Springs Parade of Homes runs from August 8 - 24 where tickets will run $10 each. The Parade of Homes will be open daily from 10AM – 6PM everyday. More details will be available in July!

Selling Your Colorado Springs home can be difficult but not impossible.  Things are looking up for selling a home in Colorado Springs based on the latest data.  The average supply of homes has dropped from 9.44 months to 8.82 months.  Definitely a positive trend after all of the negative real estate press.  Take a look at the charts below and compare the last 6 months (chart one) to the last 30 days (chart 2). 

Selling A Colorado Springs Home

Where does your home stand in the numbers?  It is important to get a CMA (Comparitive Market Analysis) to find your Colorado Springs Home Value.  Pricing your Colorado Springs home properly will allow you to sell it much quicker than what the average supply is showing.  You can get a complimentary CMA sent to your email at www.COPropertyValues.com.  This is the best place to get started when trying to make a decision to sell a home. 

Buying A Colorado Springs Home

If you are looking to buy a Colorado Springs home or build a new Colorado Springs home, take a look at the saturated markets.  Some homes are moving quicker than others!  What price range are you looking at and what is the months supply?  This will directly effect the amount you pay compared to the seller's asking price.  It is important to have an experienced Colorado Springs Realtor who understands all of the different variables going into purchasing Colorado Springs real estate.

Buyer's Market?

by Alan Daniels

Colorado Springs Real Estate - Buyer's Market

Is the real estate section of your local paper filled with stories about how the real estate market in your area is slowing down? Is it taking months to sell the homes on the market? If this description fits your area, and you have been waiting for the right time to buy a house, it may be time for you to make a move. This kind of market is referred to as a "buyers' market" for a good reason--it is an opportunity for buyers to select from a large number of homes that could satisfy their needs.

Everyone involved is ready to bend over backwards to make it possible for you to buy your dream home. Most sellers are highly motivated and so are the local real estate agents, loan officers, title companies, and other professionals involved in the transaction. It is important to remember that the real estate market runs in cycles, and conditions can change without a lot of warning. This could be the perfect time to contact a good real estate agent to discuss your needs and to explore the possibilities available to you.
