Preliminary sales figures for the month of May show that Colorado Springs home sales improved, almost matching last years sales, down less than 1%. Prices firmed up as well, with the average (mean) jumping over 5% since April, and down only 12.2% from last May. The ‘sale price to list price ratio’ also jumped to 97.4%, closer to it’s long term average. These are welcome statistics to those of us in the business, it has been a long time coming. We’ve still got a long way to go, but this is a real step in the right direction.
Today’s photo of wildflowers was taken Saturday morning, a block from our house in Briargate. Perhaps not the best example, it still gives you a little idea of what I mean when I talk about the wildflowers blooming.
