A HUGE shift in the market is happening ...

One year ago the number of closed transactions (DEMAND) was down 6.4% and the number of active listings (SUPPLY) was up 5.2% over the prior year in metro Denver.

But the story is different this year! Demand is up and supply has dropped!
For January 2012 the number of closed, single-family transactions is up 15.6% and the number of active listings is down 39.1%. The supply of available properties has steadily declined over the last 12 months and the demand is now ticking upward. While it is too early to call the increase in demand a trend it is a clear shift from the previous year.

We see the same pattern for multi-family properties (condos and town homes) with the demand up 10.4% and supply down 50%.

The decreased inventory of available homes is enough to put upward pressure on property values and if demand continues to increase, the market should see measurable increases in value in the not-too-distant future. We shall see what the coming months bring as we move into the “buying season.”

Let me know if you would like to discuss the dynamics of the real estate market where you live.

People have been looking at me like I have 2 heads when I say there is nothing for sale. Well I have the stats to prove it. According to an article in the Denver Post, the number of houses for sale shrunk to 10,443 in January, a 5% decrease from December.

It is nearly 7,500 down on the number available this time last year!!!

I had an instance only this week where a house had been on the market for 1 day, and had 5 offers within 24 hours. It then went to highest and best.


So if you waiting for the spring, DON’T. If everyone is waiting for the spring, inventory will spring back to normal levels, and it could be harder to sell. The shift in the market has been unbelievable in a short space of time.

So call me today and we can discuss your options 720 226 4168
