Fort Collins/Loveland Vacancy Rates “Critically Low”

As vacancy rates fall and rent numbers rise, Fort Collins is becoming an even BETTER place to invest your money! It also mentions in this Coloradoan article that around campus the vacancy rates are below 1%! This again shows that the student rental market is where it’s at for investment properties in Fort Collins. Here at KEVCO for the properties we manage (over 300) we have been at 0% for the last 3 years for the August-July lease timeframes.

As more rental properties come on the market, they will be selling quickly and potentially at a premium. So, if you have an investment property that you’ve been thinking about selling, now is most certainly the time. Give me a call or shoot me an email with questions, I hope you have a great week!

We here at KEVCO want to wish our soldiers a Merry Christmas and show our appreciation for their service! As a way to say thank you, KEVCO Real Estate Investments, & Property Management is sponsoring a Christmas Cards for the Troops drive.

Buy a box of greeting cards; write a short note of encouragement and gratitude to our troops. You can also fold a piece of paper in half and make your own cards or drawings. We would love for schools, churches, companies, and clubs to spend a few minutes making cards. If you want, you can write personal letters that can be included in the cards. “Dear Friend” is a great way to start your letter to a soldier.

For every 5 signed cards that you bring in, your name will be entered in a drawing to win a brand new Ipod Nano.

Please do not put cards or letters in envelopes, as they will be included in care packages.

Cards can be dropped off at the KEVCO office between 9:00am-5:00pm Monday thru Friday. We are located at: 1124 West Mulberry Street, Fort Collins, CO 80521. We will be accepting cards from November 8 – November 22, 2011. You can also mail a bundle of cards to our office, as long as they are received by November 22.

Also, for each the first 200 “Likes” on our Facebook page, KEVCO will donate $1 to Military Missions for the purchase of items for care packages so click HERE to go like our Facebook page.

Please help us say thank you for their service to our country, and wish our troops a very Merry Christmas!

Fort Collins 2nd Most Healthy Housing Market

So while sometimes it feels like good news is hard to come by for real estate, not for the Fort Collins area! We seem to keep getting awards piled on us, which I certainly can’t complain about. Builder Magazine just voted Fort Collins the 2nd Healthiest Housing market, due to expected employment and household increases and Colorado State University being one of our major employers.

With Fort Collins’ inventory incredibly low for the amount of demand, I am hoping that some of these good news stories will encourage sellers to get their properties on the market if they are looking to sell. Buyers don’t have a heck of a lot to choose from right now, so if you have an investment property or anything in Old Town that you have been holding off on putting on the market because you heard it was a bad time, give me a call and we can talk about why that is not the case right now.
