One part of Colorado is a seller’s market, while in the other, buyers have the upper hand, The Denver Post reports.
Metro Denver’s housing market, as well as the markets of Boulder, Fort Collins, and Greeley in northeast Colorado, are among the country’s tightest. But a 130-mile drive south brings buyers to a home resale market that is closer to national averages.
Despite the variations, markets are generally improving, and the foreclosure and short-sale numbers have dropped significantly.
The price differentials are also motivating people to be more mobile in the state, real estate agents report.
