How's the Denver Market? Glad you asked!

As 2014 enters its final weeks, many prospective buyers have renewed their efforts to find the homes they have been searching for. Interest rates remain low, but many predict they will rise in 2015. This may be the motivation for many to secure a home before the new year.

“Buyers are growing weary watching from the sidelines. Meanwhile, prospective sellers looking at the horizon still see an excellent opportunity to ‘cash-in’ to buy up into their dream homes or, in some cases, downsize as they become empty nesters. They realize the inventory of homes for sale remains low and prices continue trickling upward.” says Anthony Rael, Chair of the DMAR Market Trends Committee. He

How's the Denver market? Glad you asked!

The housing market remains tight. While home prices have leveled some in the last two months, rising much more modestly that the record setting second and third quarters, inventory has become almost as low as it was during the summer. According to Metrolist's monthly market report, "in November, 6,566 active listings were on the market in the Denver metro and surrounding area, an 18 percent decrease as compared to last month, and a 27 percent year-over-year decrease. These numbers reflect inventory levels roughly half of what they were just three years ago." Kirby Slunaker, president and CEO of Metrolist, observed, “the slowing in monthly home sales is likely due to market…

How's the Denver market? Glad you asked!

Residential real estate took a surprising turn in October and November with inventory dropping sharply. While there is a traditional slow down in the fall, it tends to be earlier and less drastic. "The low inventory of homes available for sale continues to decline with seasonality impacting overall transactions," reported the Denver Metro Association of Realtors (DMAR). "The month-end inventory of 6,748 homes is getting closer to the record low of 6,341 homes in March 2014."

This followed a month where home prices hit new records once again. "In Denver-Aurora, the (S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices) was estimated at 156.60, which means the home prices in September were, on
