Record Snowfall Leads to Real Estate Headaches

This February, Colorado broke a snowfall record set back in 1912. This was the snowiest February on record with 22.2″ and counting. All this snow is great for our drought issues, but for those in the real estate industry, it’s just a headache.

Agents have had to cancel open houses because of weekend snowstorms, deals are being delayed due to inspectors not having full access to the home because of snow and ice, and sellers and buyers are struggling to move out of or into their homes.

Even without a tough winter, the spring months are when the real estate market really begins to heat up. This spring may prove to be even busier than usual; many sellers are choosing to delay putting their homes on the market until the weather is better.

First Time Home Buyers in Centennial

“My husband and I purchased our home through Marty back in May 2014. It was a difficult market to navigate, especially for first time home buyers like ourselves. Marty was so patient. He and his assistant, Morgan, spent over a month showing us homes, helping us put together offers and then encouraging us to keep going even when we felt discouraged. He made the whole process convenient by hooking us up with a lender who was efficient and available for communication at all times of the day. We love our home and can’t thank Marty and his team at GoodFit Homes enough for helping us through our first home purchase. We would recommend GoodFit Homes to anyone who likes patient, attentive and friendly real estate assistance! We love you guys!” – Jacki & Martin K.
