How's the Denver Market? Glad you asked!

As July heats up, literally, the Denver market remains unchanged in some key areas. Not unlike many places in the country, the inventory here remains far below its demand. In a recent report from Land Title Guarantee Co., they explained, "based on the closed transactions in May of 4,970 we need 31,440 active listings to create a balanced market with 6 months of inventory. There are only 6,510 active attached and detached units in the market place, we are short of inventory by 79.3%." The numbers gathered for this report were only from the 7 Metro Denver Counties (Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Elbert and Jefferson) which provides a more accurate view of the Mile High

As July gets into full swing, home buyers in the Denver area continue to search in a highly competitive market. Home prices and values have been on a steady rise. Denver passed the pre-recession peak level earlier this year. According to RealtyTrac, "counties where the post-recession median home price peak is furthest above the pre-recession/recession median home price peak included Denver County, Colo. (up 16.6 percent)…" While the rising costs have led to concern of repeating the mistakes of a not so distant past, experts are confidant that the market is recovering in a healthy direction. "Home prices are as high as they are because of the low inventory spread across the nation. But

How's the Denver market? Glad you asked!

Summertime is regarded by many to be the hottest time to buy or sell residential real estate. While Denver has not experienced as significant a decrease in the months prior, our market has certainly shown the higher demand. Record low inventory continues to drive the market here and nationally. CNBC recently reported, "the builders are doing better, but they're not exactly back. Single family housing starts are still meandering in near record-low territory. Supplies of new homes for sale are meager, and the builders are targeting high-end buyers, not the entry-level, first-time buyers who are sorely needed to complete this recovery."

While low inventory and rising home values are

How's the Denver market? Glad you asked!

The market for homes here is highly competitive. The low inventory has sparked a reluctance to sell homes for fear of not being able to find one to buy. With well priced homes being on the market for only a few weeks, this concern is understandable. "Average days on market have reached historic lows. 28 Days to contract for detached residential and 21 days for attached. Typical numbers for detached and attached residential properties are 90-110 or 100-120 respectively," reports Land Title Guarantee Co. They also added numbers to the inventory shortage. "There are only 6,510 active attached and detached units in the market place, we are short of inventory by 79.3% (for a healthy

The Denver market remains hot as we plunge deeper into the summer months. Historic low inventories and high demand continue to be the biggest factors. "The market is most heavily favoring a seller’s market in the $200,000 - $399,999 range where Denver only has 12.3% of the required inventory," reports Land Title Guarantee Co. on detached residential properties. A healthy market is considered to have a 6 month supply. Currently within the 7 Denver Metro counties (Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Elbert and Jefferson), there is a 1.3 month supply in detached residential and only 1 month in attached residential. Land Title Guarantee reports that this is currently the lowest supply in both categories on record.

The Fears of Selling Your Home with a Lack of Inventory

 By Derek Schimmel

Denver’s housing market has seen record highs in sales prices through the middle for 2014. To say that we are in a seller’s market is an incredible understatement, as inventory creeps lower and buyers continue to come out in masses. This gridlock has created an all-too-real issue for homeowners who are considering selling their house or condo – once their house sells, how the heck are they going to find a new place to purchase before its time to move?

It’s a valid concern, but there are in fact ways to alleviate this issue and help move potential sellers over the “list my home” tipping point.

Here are but a few of the ways:
