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.
