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.

Home prices remained high, with the average single-family closed price up 0.9% when compared to last month and up 8.5% year-over-year. When viewing the single-family closed median price, we saw a 9.6% increase year-over-year.
