March 2017 Brisk Month for Sales.
There was no lull in the market in the first quarter of 2017 and in particularly March provided to be a brisk month for sales. The average sales price for March 2017 was $305,094 which is a 21.7% increase over March 2016 at $251,388. YTD (Year-to-Date) 2017 sales were $242,393 and YTD 2016 $225,159 an increase of 7.7% for 2017! Here’s a link for March 2017 of Residential Properties Sold. Inventory is an issue, there aren’t nearly as many homes for sale as in years past. In March of 2016 there were 135 homes for sale and in March of 2017 there are only 87 homes for sale in the entire Northfork Area, a decrease in residential inventory of 35.6%.
In case you don’t follow my real estate page on Facebook here are a few articles written on the Northfork in the past month. A nice piece in Cowboys & Indians Magazine on the Smith Fork Ranch in Crawford. CPR (Colorado Public Radio) featured a story on SEI (Solar Energy International) located in Paonia, Colorado Coal Country Sees Economic Salvation In Solar, Organic Farming. And, Jacob Helleckson wrote about his experience of growing up on a vineyard in Paonia.
