How’s the Parker Real Estate Market?

Just this morning I was picking up an item at Home Depot, and I ran into someone I know.  She asked me that question I hear more than any other; “How’s the real estate market in Parker”?

It really is a great question, and it affects all of us who own homes.  Heck, even if you’re renting, it affects that property, too!   And after the last few years of a down market, it is with great pleasure that I can begin to say our market is doing much better.

Home sales are up 12% compared to the same time last year.  Does this mean you can ask 12% more than you paid when you bought the home?  Sorry, no.  The market is funny that way.  You can only ask what a willing buyer (the market) is ready to pay.  How about that fancy new hot tub you spent $6000.  Can’t I just add that to the price?  Sorry, no.  The market is funny about that, too.  You can only ask what a willing buyer is ready to pay.  See a theme here?

Our Parker Colorado real estate market is picking up, but supply and demand has a way of keeping things on track.  If you’re thinking of selling, or just want to know “How’s the market”, let me know.
