View the Prudential Connection Newsletter!
In the latest Prudential Connection newsletter we discuss the current real estate trends in Steamboat Springs. Understanding the trends and trying to predict them seems to be a national pastime right now. Of course we’re all looking for the crystal ball that will help us make good decisions when investing in real estate. (if you find it, let us know!)
At Prudential Steamboat Realty, we’ve seen a large increase lately in the amount of scheduled showings. This shows us that buyers are getting excited to once again enter the market by making a purchase. For sellers, this means that more than ever it’s imperative to have the most attractive asking price for the property you have for sale. Working with sellers on price has been a major focus for the Boyd Team as of late.
“New Trends in Lending” are also highlighted in the newsletter. Give it a read to better understand how the current lending atmosphere is making it difficult, but not impossible, to get a deal done. An influx of government loans like FHA, VA and USDA programs are helping to ease the pain of borrowers looking for cash.
And please take a look at the “Steamboat Market at a Glance” section. This will give you a great snapshot of where we are as compared to previous years. We’d love to go more in depth with you on the current market conditions if you’d ever like to talk. Shoot us a call or email and as always… happy hunting!
