Great deals still available in Fort Collins Colorado as 2012 comes to a close. It's a great time to explore your options - especially with Mary and Dick as your guides.

Hi Linda & Debb - Thanks for taking the time this morning to comment on my foreclosed homes market report for Fort Collins. We seeing this market segment steadily decline in size - a very good sign as our reegional economy regains some momentum.

Dick, there is no question that I would call you and Mary if I was interested in purchasing a Fort Collins foreclosure or non-foreclosure.  The shape of your foreclosure graph is very similar to ours.  It's a market I follow carefully with daily auto e-mails to myself.  When our market began improving the lenders were the first ones to respond by increasing the prices of their REOs.

Were you a grad student at UCLA the day CA was predicted to fall into the Pacific?  None of my TAs showed up to teach on that day. Probably went to Vegas.

Hi Dick - very similar to our market as well.   The frustration for some buyers purchasing a bank owned property is the possibility that a bank will not respond as quickly as a standard/equity sale but there can be some good opportunities available for patient buyers.
