Increase in Inventory Keeps Metro Denver Colorado Home Sales Strong

The latest data from REcolorado shows consumers kept the metro Denver real estate market active in May, with month-over-month gains across major market indicators.

There was a welcome increase in new listings that helped inventory levels grow and kept sales strong. Market challenges remain; however, we continue to see strong numbers this buying and selling season, as home buyers shrug off higher prices and the lack of inventory, a sign of continued confidence in the economy.

Inventory of available homes for sale in the greater Denver Metro area saw a month-over-month lift in … (0 comments)

denver market update: 2016 Starts Strong for the Metro Denver Housing Market - 02/25/16 09:19 AM
Following a record year for the Denver area real estate market, 2016 started strong. January’s indicators showed sizable increases in the number of new listings that came on the market, an indication that sellers are looking to get a jump on the selling season and take advantage of what continues to be a seller’s market. January saw 4,148 new listings of homes for sale, a 63 percent increase over last month and three percent more than last year. These new listings were snapped up quickly by eager buyers.
Indicative of the competitive housing market, sellers continued to see extremely quick sales cycles. The average … (1 comments)

denver market update: METRO DENVER REAL ESTATE MARKET UPDATE MAY 2013 - 05/23/13 02:34 AM

We are in a unique time when we have almost the same amount of homes go Under Contract that come on the market each month!  Wow!  But, for the first time in almost a year, the trend line for Inventory is slightly going up instead of down!  I believe we will start to see a trend to a more balanced market, but it will take some time to get there.  Many homes are selling very quickly with multiple offers, while others sit and don’t get many showings or no contracts!  The difference is professional guidance.  Let us be your … (0 comments)

denver market update: METRO DENVER REAL ESTATE MARKET UPDATE - JUNE 2012 - 07/03/12 06:14 AM

Market Metrics:
The big story continues to be the low amounts of inventory as we see the Single Family Inventory hovering at 8,700 listings during the primest of times to list a home in the Denver market.  We are continuing to see more of the same: a limited amount of inventory of homes available for sale, continuing/expanding buyer demand, and multiple offers that are now happening in the higher price ranges.  The limited inventory of homes available for sale and high buyer demand has led to the bidding wars which are now prevalent.  Denver continues to be one … (2 comments)

Market Metrics:
The inventory of active listings at November month end hit a new low at 12,634 units, a decline of 11% month over month and 37% year over year.  Buyer demand continues steady at a seasonally adjusted rate for the holiday season.  Declining supply and steady demand could indicate that we are poised for firming prices in the next six months.

denver market update: METRO DENVER REAL ESTATE MARKET UPDATE - NOVEMBER 2011 - 11/29/11 03:31 AM

Market Metrics:
In October, the unsold inventory of active listings in metro Denver hit a new low at 14,156 units, the second month in a row for setting a new low record.  As we are moving into new territory, there is steady demand by buyers and low inventory.  When one compares the Denver housing market to the nation, Denver continues to hold its own. When compared to October of last year, # of sales is about even, prices are about the same, while inventory is down 30% for single family homes and down 46% for condos/townhomes.  Since demand is … (2 comments)

Monthly Market Recap:
As you can see above, inventory of single family homes is down sharply from a year ago, about 25% lower.  But sales are … (0 comments)

denver market update: DENVER REAL ESTATE MARKET UPDATE - AUGUST 2011 - 08/25/11 09:15 AM

We now are seeing year over year numbers improve substantially as the 2010 stimulus closings are mostly out of the picture.  I believe that the Low Inventory is the real story.  If you have a Denver home that shows really well and is priced correctly, there is a buyer out there for it!  I have found that some of the bank owned homes now show better than many of the normal re-sales.  The banks are starting to get it, and are making their homes show well. 
July was the second month in 2011 which resulted in at least … (0 comments)

denver market update: So, How’s the Denver Real Estate Market? December 2010 - 12/24/10 04:30 AM
The Denver Metro Market Should Outperform the Average US Market in 2011

The most recent Case-Shiller report shows in their 10-City and 20-City Composite Index that we saw a dip in housing prices nationally, for the last three months of 2010. Despite this, average home prices in the Denver area are five percent higher than a year ago. Some of the gains we saw in pricing in 2010 have been lost, according to their current national statistics. The good news for the Denver metro real estate market is that 12 of the 15 worst markets are … (2 comments)

denver market update: Denver Has Nation's 3rd Strongest Economy - 05/19/10 07:15 AM
Denver has the nation’s third-strongest economy out of 366 metro areas, based primarily on two decades’ worth of jobs and income data, according to a report released Wednesday by economics research firm Policom Corp.
It’s the highest ranking ever for Denver in Policom’s annual report. The Denver area moved up from seventh place last year, 17th in 2008 and 19th in 2007.
To compile its report, Florida-based Policom said it measured 23 different economic factors from 1989 to 2008. Positive factors in the rankings include wages and income broken down in several ways, plus jobs in key sectors; negative factors include … (2 comments)

denver market update: Denver Market Update - 10/13/07 10:56 AM
Hold on to your hats Sellers! I've been searching the September statistics for a glimmer of hope in the Denver Housing Market and here it is - the shoe has finally dropped. Why is that good news? Because the anticipation of a correction usually impacts the housing economy more than the reality. Home sales, under contracts, average price and median price are all down significantly from August 2007 as well as September 2007. We went from a 6.15 month supply in August to an 8.11 month supply in September. Average price dropped 6.7% from August to September. I am not expecting this trend … (1 comments)

denver market update: Denver Market Update - 09/12/07 01:52 PM
What a crazy market!  The end of August brought stats that were a surprise to no one.  I believe a major cause is the strong reaction of the public by the constant barrage of bad new by the media.  While Average price as well as Median price on Residential homes is up compared with a year ago, there were more than 10% fewer homes that went under contract when compared with last month.  I view the under contract statistic as the best indicator of consumer interest in home buying, so 10% few homes sold in August is a huge indicator of consumer interest.  Interestingly enough, … (1 comments)
