Real estate market updates for Denver Colorado.


In January, there was a substantial surge in new listings, marking an 89.3% increase compared to the previous month and a significant uptick of nearly 12% compared to the same period last year. Concurrently, demand experienced notable growth, evidenced by a 38% rise in pending listings compared to the previous month, slightly surpassing the levels observed at the beginning of 2023. The average and median prices for single-family homes remained at elevated levels, surpassing historical January data since 2019.

Condo and townhome prices continue to demonstrate strength, with an average closed price of $465,237. The real estate landscape in our area still remains vibrant, offering both buyers and sellers great opportunities.

In October, the real estate market experienced the impact of both seasonality and fluctuating interest rates. There were fewer active listings, new listings, and pending listings compared to the same period last year. However, there was a slight increase in demand, as reflected in the number of pending listings, which is consistent with the trend observed in October 2022.

Despite these fluctuations, property prices continued to rise. The average closing price for single-family homes increased by 4.0% year-over-year, and the closed-price-to-list-price ratio reached 99.1%, marking a slight 0.3% increase from the previous year. While these changes may appear modest, they underscore the resilience and strength of property prices in the current market.

There's a lot to consider when selling your Denver home, from the real estate market and appraisals (to where you'll go next). However, one key factor that is often overlooked is overall home design.
