With values expected to increase more than 7 percent over the next 12 months, the Fort Collins-Loveland and Greeley real estate markets are both expected to rank among the top 25 for home appreciation.

In the same period, Greeley homes will increase 7.3 percent. Fort Collins-Loveland ties Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, for 15th in the Veros rankings, and Greeley is 19th.
