Both seasonality and increasing interest rates played a role in the Greater Metro Denver housing market in October. Buyers continued to have an upper hand - when compared to the prior two years - with more days on market and a decreased percent closed price to list price, as well as more inventory. In fact, months supply of listings was up 88.9% when compared to last year at this time.

Percent of Closed Price to List Price

This data point saw a continued drop and was down 0.1% when compared to last month. This data point is the lowest we have seen in 4 years.

Supply - Active Listings

Active inventory was up 60.2% year-over-year and down 10.1% compared to last month. 

New Listings

New listings were down 28.1% when compared to last year and down 26.6% when compared to last month. This data point is the lowest we have seen in 4 years and is likely due to a "wait and see" approach by sellers.
