The real estate market for Johnstown CO performed much more strongly in 2013 than the previous two years, with sales activity at higher levels, prices tending upward, and inventory levels not falling as sharply as in other regional communities and slowly recovering. With the regional economy improving, we feel confident that we will see a continuation of these trends as we move into 2013.
Johnstown will continue to experience activity during the winter months ahead, as it's prime location for regional commuters and a nice supply of attractively-priced homes fuel buyer interest. As always, we recommend that sellers who wish to attract interest pay close attention to competitive pricing and proper home preparation.
