Denver Colorado Home Trends

Seller Trends:  The number of Active Detached Single Family homes declined to 4,746 which is a decrease of over 11% over the previous month.  Condos and townhomes also decreased 8.5% from September to October bringing the count to 1,392.  Combined, the total number of Active Properties for the month of October was down to 6,138.  Much of this decrease can be attributed to the seasonal plateau we normally see in the Denver Metro area.  However, demand is still high considering a balanced market representing a six month supply would require that there be 29,850 Active units.

Prices are staying steady with the average sold price for detached homes at $442,901.  There has been a slight increase of attached homes which is now hovering around $288,345.  However lower end homes (under $350,000) are still increasing at an average of 10% per year.  Homes priced over $500,000 appear to be decreasing slightly as of late.  With regard to Days on Market, you'll find that single family homes are averaging 34 Days and detached homes are averaging only 30 Days.  Keep in mind when pricing your home, to make sure to keep up with the rising prices, but not price it too high, or there is a chance your home will not sell.  Make sure you hire a licensed Realtor who is familiar with the market and with your specific area to make your real estate experience a positive one.

Not much good news for Buyers:  For Buyers, besides having to compete with multiple offers on most properties, interest rates are starting to tick up since the election of President Elect Donald J. Trump.  If you have a decent credit score, interest rates are hovering slightly above 4.1% for Conventional and 3.5% for FHA and VA financing.  However, as a buyer, you will need to act quickly if you see a home that you really like.  Since inventory is still tight for homes under $350,000, the days of multiple offers, some over asking are still typical.  The competition for condos and townhomes, under $250,000 is still really crazy, but if you can get into a place, your total payment should be much less than rent.  Closings are still being scheduled approximately 45 days out, due to the length of time it takes to get an appraisal completed.  However, with rates ticking up, the numbers of people wanting to refinance may start to slow down, giving Buyers the opportunity to close sooner.  If you have a closing date in mind, you may still want to start looking 75-90 days out from your anticipated closing date, in order to get into your new home as planned, as you may have to submit several offers, before getting one accepted.
