Report highlights include:

  • Metro-area homes now spend an average of 33 days on the market, according to DMAR. That’s an increase of over 22 percent compared to September 2018.

  • There are also more homes to choose from, with active inventory up more than 5 percent year-over-year in September.

Despite the changes, Denver’s real estate market hasn’t shifted in favor of buyers, according to DMAR Market Trends Committee Chair, Jill Schafer.

Schafer said that sellers still hold the upper hand in the 11-county metro area. According to DMAR, September ended with 2.04 months of single-family inventory and 2.12 months of condos for sale, and anything under five months is still considered a seller’s market.

The biggest indicator of Denver still remaining a seller’s marketing is home prices. Home-buying in metro Denver is still very competitive and prices continue to show that. After topping out at $430,000 in the spring and summer, the median sale price dipped slightly to $415,000 in September. While that’s a little lower than the previous month, it’s still 3.75 percent higher than the same time last year.
