Demand is high for single family homes and townhomes within and Downtown, Fish Creek and the Mountain areas. If priced right, properties are seeing multiple offers at times. Lower priced condos within the same area are also selling well.

Prices: As demand increases and properties sell, we’re seeing an increase in prices. Some properties within the hot price range and area have already seen decent increases in values. Like many areas across the country, I could see values and prices rise 10-20% over the year. This is great for home owners and those looking to refinance. For many who were underwater on their mortgage might see relief soon rising values.
