Median Days on Market: Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor, Timnath, Colorado [INTERACTIVE CHART]
Data Compiled Over Five Years up to July 2018
This post details the number of days that Fort Collins homes for sale have spent from the time they go on the market in Northern Colorado’s MLS until the transaction is closed and the home has been sold. I am also including data from Windsor, Loveland, and Timnath, Colorado, because those are the primary areas that I work in my real estate practice.
If you would like to see real estate data for another area of Colorado, please feel free to reach out to me, any way that you like, and I can provide it for anywhere in this area. I am talking about Wellington, Severance, Eaton, Greeley, Berthoud, Laporte, Johnstown, Lasalle, Colorado. Our Multiple Listing Service covers those areas. And while our MLS, known as IRES, doesn’t list every single home for sale, some folks use Colorado real estate agents from Denver and their homes are listed in Denver’s MLS (not a good idea, in my opinion), it is a good representation of what is happening here in Northern Colorado. Data for homes that have been sold by the owner without being listed in our MLS is also unavailable.
But, the lion’s share of homes are sold through IRES and with Colorado real estate agents who are members of this MLS, so this is solid look at what has happened over the last five years up until last month, July 2018.

The number of days homes are spending on the market in Northern Colorado is down just a touch from this time last year. Fort Collins days on market for July 2017 was 48. For 2018, it is 47. Loveland was 50 days on market for July 2017. It is 48 days for July 2018. Similar, slight dips have happened for Windsor. Timnath is down the most, going from 97 median days on market last year, to 87 this year.
It’s important to plan for how long it will take your home to sell. If you are still making mortgage payments on it, those numbers are important. If you are still living in it, it can affect when you move. A good Realtor® (like me) will have an idea of how to help you plan for these eventualities.
The best advice for getting your home to move in a timely manner? Price it right. If you price it too high, this can make the time it spends on the market much longer and can really affect the success of your sale.
