You’ve seen stories about our Denver real estate market balancing. The phrase “a buyers’ market” hasn’t been used in our Denver metro area in years. So is it balanced for buyers and sellers? It all depends on the price point and type of home.
For all Denver real estate bought and sold in our area in September, we finished with 2.04 months of single-family homes and 2.12 months of condos available for sale. Since it takes almost six months of inventory to balance a market, we have a ways to go!
But our Denver real estate market this year has been “balancing” – we’ve had more inventory on the market than in 2018. Sellers have reduced their prices more often and listings have lingered on the market for more days. While price appreciation hasn’t reversed, it’s growth rate has slowed down. In fact, our average sales price in September was 6% higher than this time last year.
So where do homebuyers have buying power? If you plan to buy a premiere condo between $750,000 and $999,999 or a $1 million+ single-family home, we have nearly 6 months of inventory.
The further down you go in price point, the greater the demand for listings, and the stronger the market favors sellers. Last month we only had 1.33 months of single-family homes and 1.97 for condos priced between $300,000 and $499,999! It’s a very hot market.
The bottom line, if you plan to buy or sell in our shifting Denver market, get expert advice and guidance through the process. I’d love to help you reach your goals. Call or text me today if you have any questions!

While April usually kicks off our busiest real estate season…last month was more like a drop-kick!
Denver’s average single-family homes’ sales price hit an all-time high: $553,371 (condos increased to $368,565).
So while homeowners’ price negotiations were strong, home buyers had some key advantages:
- More time to house-hunt as listings spent 28 days on the market (last April, it was only 20 days).
- With over 7,000 properties on the market, home buyers also had a lot more inventory to choose from (every April since 2015, our supply has only been in the 5,000s).
No doubt we have more intense months ahead. Home buyers and agents, to be on top of your game, we’ll design an excellent strategy and a team of professionals to navigate our market’s unexpected shifts.

I have such exciting news to share about our Denver Real Estate market!!
Homeowners, you’ve probably been waiting for years to purchase a better home. While last spring our super hot market might’ve given you an incredible return at closing, the lack of inventory caused many of you to reconsider hunting for a new property.
But this February we continued to see more listings hit our market while prices remained at lower levels. The median price for a single-family home was actually $430,000 (which we last saw in March of 2017). Considering we had 47% more homes for sale compared to last February, our buyers were thrilled to have more options!!
So if you’re looking to upgrade – this may be your time! I’d love to help you find the next, right home!!
