Hello All,

February is here and we're galloping into the second month of the year!  January is always a little hectic with to-do lists and coming off of the holiday season, so you should take a moment or two to take part of all the fun things that Denver has to offer this month!  Aside from the love that Valentine's Day brings, we still have plenty of winter activities in Colorado to take advantage of.  Now is the time to revel in the chilly weather because warmer days will be upon us before you know it!  If you're looking to buy or sell, let us help you spring into action!

We're off to a brisk start in the real estate market for 2020!  In January, 4,853 new listings came on the market, a massive 89.27 percent increase from the month prior. However, the month ended with 4,941 active listings, a 1.91 percent drop from December, because homebuyers placed 43 percent more homes in pending status month over month which diminished the housing inventory surplus.

Historically we get a big influx in January and, this year, homebuyers apparently liked what they saw because they were scooping them up faster than they were coming on the market. In fact, 70 more homes shifted to a pending status than showed up as new listings, gnawing away at our end of month active inventory surplus.

Continued low mortgage interest rates, 18 days above the average temperatures in January, and no postseason Denver Broncos games were some of the reasons the Denver-area housing market heated up early.  According to some, the Denver Metro real estate market kicks into high gear following the Bronco’s last game each season.  Let's get started!

 

Average Single Family Home Price: $532,494

Average Condo Price: $355,754

Total Number of Properties for Sale: 4,941

Average Days on Market: 45
