Denver’s real estate market shows no signs of cooling down as recent data from the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Prices Indices report shows. Home-resale prices in metro Denver rose by 9.2 percent (nearly double the national average) in January from a year earlier, the highest annual growth rate since last July. Additionally, Denver once again ranked third among the 20 large cities for year-over-year growth in home resale prices.


Other highlights from the report include:

  • Only Seattle and Portland saw greater annual growth rates in January, at 11.3 percent and 9.7 percent respectively.

  • Nationwide, home-resale prices rose 5.9 percent in January from a year earlier.

  • Denver's Case-Shiller home price index in January set a new record at 190.75. That means that local home resale prices averaged 90.75 percent higher than they were in the benchmark month of January 2000.


Case-Shiller numbers for metro Denver cover a 10-county area: Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Denver, Douglas, Elbert, Gilpin, Jefferson and Park counties. The Case-Shiller index is compiled by comparing matched-price pairs for thousands of single-family homes in each market.
