Too me Joan, the market is really good, it is just softening to the point that buyers have a bit of time to decide on a listing.

I am reading that markets are softening all over the country. Inflationary pressures are taking a strong market to task Joan 🧐

Hi Joan... that was quite an increase in days on market in July... I'm sure the two interest rate hikes between mid-June and mid-July had something to do with it. That being said, still looks like a solid market to me.

Nina Hollander, Broker not only the rate hikes, but this time of year is statistically slower after end of June or at least mid-July.   Schools start in many counties 8/8 around Denver, so last vacations, and getting kids ready for school is more on the minds.
