Luxury tastes are making a comeback in the United States

Luxury Home

Ever watch that reality television show on the Bravo station, “Million Dollar Listing”?  Personally, Cherise and I do not embrace the program’s Realtor® personalities nor do we operate our real estate practice similarly as these gentlemen.  But one thing we have in common deals with the nature of our markets.

According to Madison Hildebrand (USA Today), one of the Realtors® who specializes in luxury homes in Malibu, “We’re starting to see movement…People are more confident (about the high-end market).”

Likewise in Colorado Springs, we’re also dealing with higher-end clients regarding Colorado Springs Real Estate.  This really isn’t a surprise given the smokin’ prices and plentiful inventory on higher-end, upgraded homes, and the combination of incredibly low interest rates, as well as a turnaround in the Wall Street dynamics.

In an article written by Gary Strauss of USA Today, some pockets of consumer confidence are back to the levels of 2007.  “Wall Street’s gains have helped put many in the mood to shop.  Since hitting a 12-year low of 6547 in March 2009, the Dow Jones industrial average has surged 89% to 12,391.”

To quench your thirst for the finer, luxury, residential homes in Colorado Springs, feel free to contact our Colorado Springs Realtors at Selley Group Real Estate, LLC:  2139 Chuckwagon Rd, Ste 210 - Colorado Springs, Colorado 80919 - 719. 598. 5101

Hi Gordon and Cherise,

How's it going guys?  Yes, I have seen that show.  I do like seeing all the different homes and areas on the show.  Regarding the different personalities, I realize they're here for entertainment.

I'm glad to here your high-end market is taking off.  Here in Lake Tahoe, we're seeing the higher price listings moving.  Great signs.  Have a great week!

Cheers from Lake Tahoe,
~Grace Yee

Grace,

As much as we differ about the show, we still find ourselves drawn to watching.  Guess we're real estate junkies ourselves.  Likewise, you all have a great week... g

Cherise and Gordon,

We watched it at first, and we know quite a few of the agents around Los Angeles and Malibu.  The ones on the show do not reflect our preferences in agents.  With that out the way, people attract people they can relate to, as Paul Simon song says, "Who am I to blow against the wind?, 

We are hearing the same optimism, and we are delighted.  A
