Home selling and home buying

  • The frenzy has slowed down a little bit. More offers are accepted.
  • The basic fundamentals of what’s driving the market: lack of inventory, high cost of new constructions, low-interest rates. Those things are going to continue for a while. I think there’s still a good investment to be made in real estate.
  • People are more flexible on where exactly they want to live and would like to stay on their budget.

Sellers Marketplace Data

  • Denver has about 2400 detached single homes for sale from 1500 2 months ago. Colorado Springs has almost 50% more homes.
  • Colorado Springs now has an inventory of approximately 2 and ½ weeks. Denver has 2 weeks of inventory.
  • The normal, comfortable, and healthy market should have over 4 months of inventory thus it is still a seller’s market.
  • The median price range in Denver Colorado is around $600,000 which is what it was about 2 months ago. Colorado Springs’ median price range is staying at around $450,000.
  • -Denver and Colorado Springs’ median price range is 20% higher than 1 year ago.

You need a top real estate agent to guide you through this. Be careful who you hire. You could lose thousands of dollars if you don’t – Larry Stanley (Co-host, Barry and Larry Consumer’s Real Estate)

Reverse Mortgage

  • With the reverse mortgage, you’re just using your equity or equity-based retirement solutions which are meant for people 62 and older.
  • A great way to activate the equity in your home. Not necessarily to spend it.
  • You can activate the equity, set it aside so as you age you’re going to have it in the event you need the cash.
  • It does not have a negative string or negative future. A no-loan payment and will make you a cash buyer.
  • The payment comes from 2 sources (1. the equity of your current home 2. from the federal government)
