Foreclosures in Colo. mountains scaling record heights

Fairview Lending is a Colorado hard money lender. We specialize in hard money loans both in Denver and throughout Colorado. The objective of this post is to provide information regarding the Colorado residential and commercial markets. From earlier posts it appears the Denver metro housing market is stable and likely near a bottom. Unfortunately the high country (Breckenridge, Vail, Aspen, Keystone, Steamboat Springs, etc…) have not yet hit bottom. The foreclosures are actually continuing to accelerate. My theory is that the majority of these owners were able to wait out the worst of the economy. Unfortunately the recession has dragged on longer than anyone had originally anticipated. As property values continue to decline in mountain areas due to less disposable income, tighter underwriting standards, etc… more homes will continue to go into foreclosure. The Denver post published and article: http://www.denverpost.com/business/ci_17071031 showing the increase in foreclosures in mountain communities.

Fairview has closed a number of loans in the high country that traditional lenders were unwilling to fund. Most recently we funded a transaction in Steamboat Springs, CO where the borrower was unable to obtain conventional financing on a condo since there were too many nightly rentals in his complex. Fairview was able to close the loan. If you have a property in the high country and need creative private financing.
