Colorado Unemployment hits 8.8%

Fairview Lending is a private Colorado lender. We actively watch the Colorado market to pick up trends impacting the real estate markets throughout the state. The Denver Post had an interesting article: http://www.denverpost.com/business/ci_17210342 on the Colorado unemployment rate. It appears that the Colorado market is lagging the country in the recession. Colorado entered the recession after the majority of the rest of the country and unfortunately will come out at a later time. Most striking was the statement that Colorado employment would not return to normal levels until 2014/15. That is quite a ways off. Unfortunately just as the economy seems to be turning the corner there could be another downturn based on historical trends. Definitely stay tuned.
