October 2022 Denver Market Update

Homebuyers and sellers in September continued to adjust to the market reset. The market adjustment brought increased inventory for home shoppers and a slight increase in homeowners eager to sell despite further softening in pending home sales. In fact, active listings were up 42.4% when compared to last year at this time. Days on market increased to 26 days on average. And, as is typical, seasonality likely played a role in shaping September numbers.

September 2022 Denver Market Update

Greater Metro Denver saw more of a balanced market in August as buyers had more options compared to last year and increased time to ponder their home buying choices.

The month's supply of listings for August was at 2020 levels.

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.
