Greenwood Village Real Estate 2013 could be the year we get off our hands. The holiday décor is down; neighborhood kids are back in school; January’s social calendar looks amazingly clear (compared with the previous two months, anyway)… so, what now? One suggestion I might offer: put some serious thought into acting on those financial New Year’s resolutions – at least the ones dealing with your Greenwood Village real estate plans.
Doing so would dovetail nicely with my own New Year’s prediction, one I share with many credible real estate watchers:
2013 is the year buyers and sellers are going to really get serious about real estate.
According to Money Magazine on CNN’s website, the housing market rebound is here. Among other sources, they site the Mortgage Bankers Association forecast that “more and more house hunters will start coming off the sidelines.” They expect total dollars going to new home loans to jump a heart-thumping 55%!
For five years, Greenwood Villagehomeowners weathered the storm of the credit crisis as well as could be expected; then came marked improvement in 2012. At last count, there were approximately 1.8 million homes for sale nationwide (half the number at the market’s deepest divot).
While no one expects real estate prices to see crazy red-hot double-digit increases in 2013, it is encouraging to see the worst in the rear-view mirror. And with optimism about residential real estate now broadening into general public awareness, we seem to be looking at a fresh arena for homeowners who are finally able to consider selling again…and for buyers who are past waiting for ‘the bottom’.
The message to prospective Greenwood Villagehome buyers and sellers this January echoes the sentiment of Money magazine, which answered the question, “Why, as a prospective home seller or buyer, you need to stop sitting on your hands”!
Whether or not your own New Year’s resolutions involve Denver real estate, it is a propitious time to give me a call. We can start the conversation about your real estate goals and how current 2013 market opportunities fit them!

"We worked with Karen Venier for a relatively short time for a good reason: our home sold at full price within hours of hitting the market! While it’s true that the Denver housing market is “hot,” credit for the speed and ease of our transaction belongs to Karen. She was great to work with, giving us perfect advice about readying our home for sale and then expertly guiding us from offer to close. Along the way, we came to appreciate Karen for her skillful blend of professionalism and personal touches – like dropping off our favorite beverages during a particularly stressful time in our move or shoveling our driveway in subzero temps after we’d left the state (way beyond the call of duty!). Now that we’ve relocated to Wisconsin, we keep saying that we wish Karen could be our buyer’s agent here. Since that’s not possible, we’ll shout her name loudly to whoever might be looking for a home in the Denver area.
Thanks for the great work, Karen!
