Happy New Year, Rockies Real Estate Investors! Our Panel is ringing in 2016 with a look at 2015, running the numbers of appreciation, days on market, and overall inventory for the Western Slope, Summit County, Colorado Springs, Denver, and Northern Colorado. The holiday didn’t seem to slow the market down towards the end of 2015. Overall the demand increases, but the supply is not improving. New build construction defect laws are allowing builders to push the rental market, and compete with the real estate market.
