Surge in Available Homes Boost Denver Homes Sales

In Denver Real Estate | on June, 05, 2013 | by | 0 Comments


DENVER – June 5, 2013 – The latest data from Metrolist®, which powers REcolorado.com, a free resource for Colorado home buyers, sellers and owners, announced today that the month-to-month inventory levels experienced the largest spike in available listings seen in over a decade, resulting in strong home sale figures and rapid turnaround times.

Available listings increased 18 percent but the inventory levels are still down 22 percent from this time last year. Home sales are increasing at a faster pace then inventory levels are rising, indicating the Denver market remains undersupplied. Average sold prices remained steady month-over-month averaging just under $310,000.

“We continue to see improvements on already promising figures,” said Metrolist CEO and President Kirby Slunaker. “We’re thrilled to see some inventory relief and matching strong sales numbers in the Denver market, we’re taking those figures as signs of both homebuyer and seller confidence.”

Although the inventory crunch seems to be lessening, the market continues to move at a fiercely competitive pace. The average days on market measurement dropped by 14 percent this month to 48 days, demonstrating how quickly houses are getting scooped up.

“The uptick in available home listings hasn’t helped the Denver homebuyer as much as one would hope,” said Slunaker. “Homebuyers still need to be prepared to make an offer quickly as the sharp increases in sales velocity indicate a highly spirited local market.”

Increasing mortgage rates could have had an impact on the number of homes that closed during May as buyers moved to take advantage of low interest mortgage loans. Metrolist suggests strong REALTOR® representation for Denver homebuyers and sellers in this busy real estate climate to remain informed, prepared and ready to move quickly or they risk losing out.
