Residential Home Sales

Date updated: 04/23/2013

Information and Real Estate Services (IRES) groups types of real estate based on use and style of the unit. The two groups shown here are Residential and Attached homes. Residential homes are single-family houses and residential acreage properties that do not share a common wall with another unit. Attached homes are properties that have shared walls or other structural components between units (i.e. condominiums, townhouses, or half of a duplex). Unless indicated, all housing data includes both types of homes, residential and attached, and both types of sales, resale and new construction.

What the above data tell us:

Between 2003 and 2012, the median sale price for houses in Loveland increased 14.7% although they are still approximately $10,000 below the high in 2006. Median prices in Estes Park and Fort Collins have not fared as well, with Estes Park increasing 13.7% and Fort Collins increasing 11.8% since 2003.

When adjusted for inflation, all three markets have failed to keep up with inflation: Estes Park (-8.9%), Fort Collins (-10.4%) and Loveland/Berthoud (-8.1%).

A 'median' sale price means that an equal number of homes were sold at a price above the median, as were sold for a price below the median.
