Foreclosure sales and foreclosure filings are both showing a year-over-year decrease of approximately 14 percent in Larimer County, indicating that the housing market here could be settling down.
“The median sales price in Estes Park has dipped somewhat in the last quarter of 2010,” reports Seth Smith, Managing Broker at Ponderosa Realty & Management, Inc., the leading Estes real estate and property management firm. “It is a good time to look around for a vacation home or if you’re an investor, for properties that would make excellent vacation cabin rentals. If you’re planning on investing in a property and renting it out, it’s best to make your move before the summer season begins.”
