2016 vs 2015 YTD :: 3-month Snapshot

2016 vs 2015 YTD :: 9-month Snapshot
As we head into Fall, this 9-month Local Real Estate Market Stats Snapshot report shows single family home sales up in Angel Fire, but down in Taos and Red River.

2016 vs 2015 YTD :: 12-month Snapshot
Closing out 2016, this 12-month Local Real Estate Market Stats Snapshot report shows single family home sales significantly up (46.4%) in Angel Fire, holding steady in Taos, and down somewhat in Red River. Condominium sales on the other hand saw fairly significant increases in sales volumes in all 3 of these markets; Angel Fire saw a 31.6% increase in condo units sold, while Taos saw a 22.2% increase, and Red River saw an explosive 57.1% increase.
As we start the new year activity is up in our normally slow winter months. This is probably due to several circumstances; the end of a contentious election cycle with a promise of progressive change on the horizon while also moving into a “stable” political climate for the next 3-4 years; home prices beginning to show appreciation again as we climb out of past recessive market conditions; and mortgage interest rates beginning to climb inciting buyers to take action now while rates, though rising, are still very attractive.
