 Denver Market Report - August 2012


Denver Market Report

The Denver real estate market has enjoyed a seller's market this year, showing 64 average days on market.   The inventory was down 34.9% in August for both single detached family homes and multi-family, which is decreasing over the past few months.   We are still seeing multiple offers on well priced homes.

Many Denver homes for sale priced below $250,000 are receiving multiple offers, so quick decisions are necessary.   Showings were slower in August as families were going on their final summer vacations, and preparing the kids for school.    Showings in September have picked back up after the Holiday weekend.    With the interest rates so low and the upcoming election, no one knows exactly what the rates will do, and buyers are anxious to get into their properties prior to the election.

With the short average time on the market, home buyers need to move quickly when they identify a home of interest.


Have a great day and an outstanding week with your camera in hand.

Inventory down for Denver homes for sale almost 35% sure would change the atmosphere of the market!

Denver homes for sale priced less than 250k receiving multiple offers sounds like positive news to me.

Joan, Denver sales are still great..and buyers thinking of purchasing a home should do so especially with the great interest rates and who knows what will happen after the election.
