Rain and hail storms did not dampen the Denver real estate market this June. While activity was noticeably slower than last year, buyers and sellers came together to navigate a changing marketplace. Bidding wars were down considerably, with the close-price-to-list price ratio at 100.23 percent market-wide. While some homes are still selling in a weekend with multiple offers, many others are sitting on the market for a few weeks with one or two price reductions before finding a buyer. The days of routinely putting a home on the market and watching it sell to the highest bidder in days are over.
Active listings at month-end steadily increased month-over-month this year, short of a slight dip in February, to 6,070. This is an increase of 16.11 percent from May and the highest the market has seen since 2020. One contributor to the growing active listings is an increased number of deals falling at inspection. Sellers are taking note and willing to work with buyers keen to walk from a deal if there are issues with inspection or appraisal.
New listings ticked up month-over-month (6.0%) but were down when viewed year-over-year. This metric remains lower than prior years.
