According to Zillow, there is no indication that prices will drop anytime soon. Inventory in June was up 10% from the month before but down nearly 50% compared to the same time frame last year.READ MORE: Drawing Down The Blue Mesa To Help The Dry West

“The market before was kind of nuts where you’d ride on a property and you’d be one of 10 offers or even more in some cases,” said Crosbie. “If you’re in a neighborhood and all of a sudden when beforehand you were one of the only properties to look at, now all of a sudden there’s three, yeah, as a seller, you’re one of three.”MORE NEWS: Search For 3 Missing After Larimer County Flooding To Resume Saturday
