February 2015 Steamboat Springs/Routt County Real Estate Analysis by Land Title


National Real Estate Market

The S&P Case-Shiller Home Price Index for January 2015 reported continued slowdown of home price increases across the country, although nine cities saw price increases. The national index, which covers all 9 census divisions, recorded a +4.5% annual gain in January 2015 while the 10-City Composite and 20-City Composites recorded a +4.4% and +4.6% increase over January 2014.

“The combination of low interest rates and strong consumer confidence based on solid job growth, cheap oil and low inflation continue to support further increases in home prices” says David M. Blitzer, Managing Director and Chairman of the Index Committee for S&P Dow Jones Indices. “Regional patterns in recent months continue: strength in the west and southwest paced by Denver and Dallas with results ahead of the national index in the California cities, the Pacific Northwest and Las Vegas. The northeast and Midwest are mostly weaker than the national index. ” Blitzer goes on to say, “Despite price gains, the housing market faces some difficulties. Home prices are rising roughly twice as fast as wages, putting pressure on potential homebuyers and heightening the risk that any uptick in interest rates could be a major setback.”
