Michelle recently helped me sell my townhouse in Colorado Springs. I was out of state and it turned into a complex sale due to problems with the HOA. She helped me navigate the process and found a buyer that could work within the situation. It really put my mind at ease to know that even though I was out of town, I had someone looking out for me throughout all of this.  07/13/2018 - user244251 Matt B.
Michelle is an amazing realtor! She tells you like it is, without sugarcoating anything, which we really appreciate in a realtor. She is extremely knowledgeable in everything regarding the housing market, trends, loans, housing programs, building codes, as well as what should and shouldn't be included on the repair requests. She is an excellent communicator with a fast response rate and an amazing negotiator. We are extremely grateful for our experience with Michelle!  12/20/2018 Allison B. Allison B.
We never would have won the bidding war at the incredible price we did without Michelle’s expertise! Because of her knowledge we were able to buy our dream house at 15 thousand dollars less than the exact same layout neighboring house and with an extra lot and upgrades!   11/19/2018 - gina and steven Gina & Steven
Michelle has helped us with two sales and a purchase here in Springs, and we couldn't be more pleased with the service and results. She listened to us at every step and guided us to great outcomes in every situation. Her knowledge and professionalism are top notch. We even personally referred her to close friends, we are that confident in the level of service she provides. Thanks so much for everything! Doug and Ashley Sanders
I want to thank my realtor, Michelle Madd, for her outstanding strategy and assistance in selling my home. Her recommendations on what to fix, and what not to fix were right on. This along with her recommendations on suggested contractors to use, in my judgement, maximized the amount of money I received from the sale. We received an offer in one day, above the listed price. How can you beat that! John E Smith
Michelle, when we move back to Colorado Springs, you can help us find another house. You did such a great job with selling our last house, we would recommend you to anyone! Relocation - Chris & Sarah Johnson
Julie is the best realtor. I have worked with her on both purchases and sales. Not only is she very professional, but she goes above and beyond for her clients. During my home search, she was constantly available. I was able to make an offer on my home within only a couple of hours of it being listed, beating out multiple other offers. Since then, I have used her for other transactions and recommended her to friends, family, and clients. She will be my realtor for as long as she will have me as a client. Carissa Shipley
Michelle was referred to us by a friend and was everything we could have hoped for in a realtor. When trying to sell our house and while looking for a new home, she reduced our stress and left no stone unturned. She walked us through every step of the process and managed our expectations and wants with honesty, commitment and passion. If you are looking for a realtor whom you can trust, who is timely, professional, and has your best interests at heart, call Michelle Madd. Simultaneous Selling & Buying - Nicholas & Amanda Neilson

The Silent Generation: Downsizing Homes & Joining Senior-Related Housing

The Silent Generation, buyers aged 73 to 93 years, made up the smallest share of buyers by age at only seven percent of all home buyers in 2018. The median age for this group was 76 years old and they were born between 1925 and 1945. They tended to have the smallest families; 96 percent of these buyers had no children living at home under the age of 18 years and they made up the same share of single female buyers as Younger Boomers at 25 percent. Of the generations, buyers 73 to 93 years bought fewer multi-generational home at 13 percent. For those that purchased a multi-generational home, the reason was for the health and caretaking of aging relatives at 13 percent.

The Silent Generation had the smallest share of first-time home buyers at only four percent, which was expected for their age group. Correspondingly, they made up the largest share to move directly from a home that they owned at 82 percent. They also had the lowest median household income at $69,600, likely living off retirement funds. They managed their finances accordingly and bought homes with the second lowest median home price at $243,000. They also purchased some of the newest homes last year with a median year of 1996.

Buyers aged 73 to 93 years also bought new homes at 14 percent and wanted the amenities of new home construction communities (23 percent). These buyers were the most likely to purchase a duplex, apartment, or condominium at nine percent, or a townhouse at 10 percent. They were also the most likely to buy a home in senior-related housing at 29 percent. These buyers wanted a home convenient to friends and family (47 percent) and for the convenience to shopping (34 percent). They were the least likely to buy homes in an area for the quality of the school district, convenience to schools, or for the convenience to a job. They were also the least likely to compromise on the condition of the home (16 percent). The Silent Generation also bought frequently in a rural area at 23 percent.

The age group of buyers 73 to 93 years were the highest share among the generations to purchase for the desire to be closer to friends and family (27 percent) and for a smaller home (17 percent). They had an expected tenure in the home at a median of 10 years. They were the most likely to move due to a household member’s health and least likely to want a larger home.

Foreign Buyers Purchased $4.8 Billion in U.S. Commercial Real Estate in 2018

International clients are an important niche market for residential and commercial REALTORS® alike. In the latest 2019 Commercial Real Estate International Business Trends, NAR reported that foreign buyers purchased $4.8 billion of U.S. commercial real estate in 2018.[1] The median value for a buyer-side transaction was $600,000, while the median value for a seller-side transaction was $1 million. The dollar volume of foreign buyer purchases of U.S. commercial property declined in 2018 compared to the $6.7 billion in 2017 and $7.9 billion in 2016 as the economic expansion slowed in Asia (e.g., China, Japan), Canada, Europe (e.g. United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain), and Latin America.

Major Buyers of Commercial Property

Asia was the largest source of U.S. commercial property buyers, accounting for about a third (34 percent; 28 percent in 2017) followed by the Canada and Latin America (29 percent; 25 percent in 2017), Europe (20 percent; 29 percent in 2017), Middle East (10 percent; 12 percent in 2017), Oceania (2 percent; 1 percent in 2017), and from other countries that were not identified by respondents (3 percent; 6 percent in 2017).

The top foreign buyers of commercial property were China (21 percent), Canada (7 percent), Mexico (6 percent), Germany (5 percent), India (5 percent), Israel (5 percent), United Kingdom (5 percent), Venezuela (5 percent), Vietnam (5 percent), and Italy (4 percent).

Major Destinations of Buyers of Commercial Property

Florida was top choice among foreign buyers of U.S. commercial property (20 percent) followed by Illinois (13 percent), Texas (11 percent), and California (9 percent). Other top destinations were Georgia, New York, Virginia, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, and Oklahoma.

Financing and Types of Property Purchased

About half of commercial foreign buyers, 52 percent, made an all-cash purchase (70 percent in 2017), and 25 percent obtained financing from a U.S. source.

International commercial buyers purchased across a variety of property types, but apartment was the most preferred, at apartment (19 percent), followed by retail (16 percent), land (12 percent), industrial (11 percent), office (9 percent), hotel (9 percent), and other types.

The bulk of foreign buyers of commercial property purchased the property as an investment to be rented out (39 percent in 2017), and 33 percent purchased the property for a business they participate in (34 percent in 2017). The Other category, which accounted for 22 percent (16 percent in 2017), includes a purchase of the property for residential and business-related uses.

Reasons Foreign Client Decided Not to Purchase U.S. Commercial Real Estate

One in five international clients decided not to purchase U.S. commercial properties in 2018 (17 percent in 2017). Understandably, the primary reason deterring a purchase is cost and exchange rate changes (36 percent of clients who decided not to purchase; 30 percent in 2017).Other major reasons are the buyer “could not find a property” (31 percent of clients who decided not to purchase), difficulty moving money out of the country (22 percent; 17 percent in 2017), tax-related issues (22 percent; 17 percent in 2017), immigration/visa (9 percent), and difficulty obtaining financing (9 percent).


[1] NAR also estimates foreign buyer purchases of U.S. residential property. According to the 2018 National Association of REALTORS® Profile of International Activity in U.S. Residential Real Estate, foreign buyers purchased $121 billion of residential property during April 2017—March 2018, or eight percent of the $1.6 trillion of total existing home sales during the same period.
