Right now the only home available in Troutman Park is 3852 Century Dr. It’s been on the market since 12/04/2015 and is listed at $399,900 which is $44,900 higher than the all time highest sales price in your neighborhood (800 Grand Lake Ct)
Here is the 2015 year end real estate review for your neighborhood:
After all the smoke settled at the end of 2015 there were 78 homes that sold throughout the year in the Troutman Park community at a total volume of $22,499,445!
They ranged from $218,325-$355,000 at an average of $288,454 and a median price of $290,000. The average days on market was 37.
Compare that to 2014′s totals:
75 homes sold
$19,135,100 total volume
$180,000 low price
$329,000 high price
$255,134 average price
$255,000 median price
44 average days on market
That equates to a 13% appreciation rate for the average price on a year over year comparison. Not bad when you consider that the West side of Old Town (West of College Ave) realized an 11% appreciation rate during the same time.
Let’s take a look at the numbers for Troutman Park by home style for 2015:

All signs seem to indicate that we will see more of the same in 2016. There will be high demand for property in Troutman Park neighborhoods and I expect we will see another all time high sales price before the year is over. It would be reasonable to assume we’ll notice another year of somewhere around 15% appreciation as well.
If you’re considering selling a home in 2016 you will find that the best terms will be realized when:
1. You sell before August (this is when buyer activity drops off significantly in Fort Collins)
2. You make preparations to merchandise your home properly. Using a stager, making any repairs or improvements needed and hiring a professional photographer are all best practices for maximizing your sales price.
3. Hire a professional, full time realtor to guide you through the marketing/sales process and negotiate on your behalf. It’s true that just about anyone could sell your home but the difference between someone that does a good job and an amateur is significant.
4. Make sure you’re home is exposed to the market for at least a few days (4-5 seems to work quite well).
