Forest Meadows Real Estate Stats Jan 2021 show that Prices increased yet again in Forest Meadows & The Trails in January, with the average price up 11.3% at $409,615. The median price rose 5.97% to $395,000. Sales were up 66.7% with 10 homes sold last month. Homes continue to sell very fast in our neighborhood with an average time on market of only 2 days! There is currently 1 home for sale and 8 pending sales, making this an ideal time for you to sell. Most homeowners are seeing above asking offers on their homes! With such fast appreciation, you may have more equity than you think!

As for the Pikes Peak Region, prices once again hit record levels, with double digit increases in both the median and average price levels. Record home prices may sound like the movie Ground Hog’s Day at this point, but it just seems like every month is the same story: Not enough to sell, and higher prices.
How tight is the inventory? As of this morning, there were only 160 homes for sale in our MLS with a Colorado Springs address that were existing (not new build homes). At any price. Of those, only 59 were under $400k. Compare that with 359 homes in the same category that sold during the month of January, and you can see the problem.
So what does all that mean for you as a seller? List your home with us now, and we’ll likely have it under contract in less than 4 days. (possibly for more than the asking price!)
What does all this mean for buyers? Plan on writing many offers over the course of several weeks before you win one. Unless of course you have plenty of cash, and are willing to pay well more than appraisal.
We do have a new program we would LOVE to talk to you about! It will allow equity rich (30% or so) homeowners to buy BEFORE you sell. Plus you will never have to show your house while you are living in it. If this sounds interesting, we would love to visit with you and see if this great program is for you! Call, text or email, and let’s get the process rolling!
