August 2022 Denver Market Update

As anticipated, given the increase in mortgage rates and recent economic news, July saw a bump up in active inventory, a drop in pending listings and an increase in days on market. Prices decreased when viewed month-over-month but were still high when viewed historically, with the median sales price at $650,000 for July.

These data points indicate that now might be a good time for buyers to make a move if they have been holding out. While July does tend to slow down in real estate, anecdotally, we hear that another contributor to slowing demand was an uptick in vacations this July versus last year at this time.

July 2022 Denver Market Update

June data indicated that the Greater Metro Denver market is returning to more "normal" levels across inventory, percent closed to list price, and days on market. Pricing was still very high when viewed historically with the median sales price at $666,963 for June - while this is only a 0.1% increase when compared to last month it is an 11.2% increase when viewed YoY.

Active listings came onto the market, indicating that sellers still seek to profit from the recent buying frenzy. But, demand is down when compared to May 2022, and days on market continued to increase.

April 2022 Denver Market Update: 

HOME VALUES ARE AT AN ALL-TIME HIGH!

March continued the trend of very high demand, an overall shortage of inventory, and skyrocketing home prices. The Spring market is starting with a big bump in new listings - March saw an increase of 42.4% as compared to last month - but they are moving very quickly with just 11 days on market, on average.

Buyers are facing high prices - the average price for a single-family home in March was $793,445 (an increase of 8% over last month) and the percent closed price to list price jumped to an astounding 106.5% from 104.8% from February.  In March, 21% of closings were cash buyers.

The River Mile

The next great place in the evolution of Denver. Located along a mile of the South Platte River, it’s envisioned as a sustainable, walkable downtown neighborhood.
