How's the Denver market? Glad you asked!

With Halloween tomorrow and autumn in the air, the Denver market is still buzzing as if it is summer time. Though the market has "cooled" by some standards (or comparisons), when considering buying or selling right now, there are strong indicators the market is still very hot. A recent Denver Post article on the slowing of price increases reported, "Denver's figures were much higher (than the national trend). In the 12-month period that ended Sept. 30, home appreciation increased 11.3 percent, up from 10.4 percent in the year before… home appreciation is expected to slow in Denver, growing just 3.8 percent in the coming year."

After a summer of record price gains and historic low

October has been exciting for real estate in the Denver area. Though there are some signs of cooling in regards to prices rising slower and fewer listings, the unmet demand from the summer has continued to drive sales. Earlier this month, Metrolist reported that, "homes stayed on the market an average of 30 days, a two-day increase as compared to last month, and 10 days fewer than September 2013. The market absorption rate indicated a steady level of demand for properties. There was a supply of just eight weeks of inventory at September month end."

In their market analysis, Land Title Guarantee narrowed the focus to the seven Denver metro counties (Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield,

Strong demand continues to drive the Mile High City's market. Many buyers, having experienced a summer of historic low inventory and bidding wars, are still in the hunt for a new home. "Buyers are less willing to participate in bidding wars, thus significantly driving down competing offers. Additionally, they’re sticking to their guns in terms of being picky and not feeling the need to settle," Anthony Rael, Chairman of the Denver Metro Association of REALTORS (DMAR) Market Trends Committee.

Land Title Guarantee Co. recently reported in their September update that, "there is only a 2-3 week supply of inventory for both detached and attached homes under $400,000." The $200K to $400K

How's the Denver market? Glad you asked!

With cooler temperatures and amber hues spreading throughout the city, there is still strong interest in residential real estate. After a summer of historic low inventory, bidding wars, and rising home prices, the Denver market has shifted into a less frantic tempo. As is typical, there has been a seasonal dip in the numbers over the last month. "The number of new listings that came on the market was down 14 percent month over month," reported Metrolist, the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) serving the metro Denver area. "However, there was a six percent increase over this time last year."

"There was a supply of just eight weeks of inventory at September month end," Metrolist reported.

Interest in the Denver market remains strong as we head into the fall season. With low interest rates and home price appreciation slowing, many feel the Mile High market is moving towards balance. "“We are moderating back to more of a normalized market, with price appreciation getting away from close to double digits,” said Peter Niederman, CEO of Kentwood Real Estate, in a recent Inside Real Estate News article. “The media wants to make it sound like gloom and doom, but it really is not… It is great to have these big increases in prices to help some people whose mortgages were underwater able to transact real estate again, but double-digit appreciation is very hard to sustain.”

How's the Denver market? Glad you asked!

With stabilizing home prices and interest rates holding, many people in the Denver area are looking to the autumn as a chance to find or sell their homes after a tumultuous summer. Bidding wars and escalating prices, coupled with record low inventory, caused many potential sellers to wait with concerns on finding a home to move into. The most sought after price range has been the $200K - $400K. This is traditionally the range for first time home owners and shows how our market continues to draw people wanting to start a home here. While prices will continue to rise, it is predicted they will do so more slowly. "Denver home values have gone up 8.2% over the past year," said Zillow and,

How's the Denver market? Glad you asked!

As fall feels ever closer, the housing market in Denver is also changing. While last summer was incredibly active and competitive in the Mile High City, there remains a high demand. As prices increased and inventory reached record lows, many potential buyers were unable to find the home they were searching for. Additionally, potential seller's showed reluctance to list their homes out of concern in finding a new home. These two factors are largely the reason there remains high interest in our market.   There are some compelling reasons not to wait till next spring though to buy. Interest rates would be one of the strongest points. In a recent market report Land Title…
