Reasons to be thankful for the Grand Valley real estate market

Bounty in the Valley By Penny Stine It’s been an interesting market this year, as rising prices have made it a great time for homeowners to sell and move up, move down or just move across town. Low-interest rates have continued to make it an attractive time for people to buy, and there are still plenty of people moving to the Grand Valley from other parts of the state and the country. Circumstances are good for both buyers and sellers, which makes this area, and this market, fairly unique. As we wrap up Thanksgiving weekend, the Real Estate Weekly staff […]

There are also quite a few women in the industry, and while many of them work in the supporting industries such as real estate and banking, more and more are looking to […]

For example, should we act as the builders or should we hire a general contractor? If we do hire someone, how much involvement should we […]

Builders barely keep up with demand

North Penny Stine New homes in the north area continue to sell at a brisk pace, which means buyers often have to write a contract and wait for months for their home to be built. At Copper Creek North, where Silas and Chris Colman have been building Energy-star certified homes for several years, there are no move-in ready homes available for buyers. “We’re seven months out,” said Naomi Colman, sales coordinator for Copper Creek Builders. The company is still building in the second filing of its subdivision and has already sold about half of filing three. In the last year, […]
