The Colorado Association of Realtors recently reported that the number of single-family home listings sold in Colorado dropped 14.6 percent in September compared to the same month a year earlier. Additionally, sales of townhouses and condos dropped 15.2 percent.

Other report highlights include:

  • Year-over-year single-family home sales in September were down 15.8 percent in Adams County, 17.8 percent in Arapahoe County, 10.3 percent in Boulder County, 11.9 percent in Denver, 16.4 percent in Douglas County and 25.6 percent in Jefferson County

  • Single-family home sales fell 26.7 percent in Pueblo County, 17.2 percent in El Paso County and 18.8 percent in Mesa County. Fort Collins and Greeley held up better, with a smaller 4.4-percent drop in Larimer County and a 7-percent drop in Weld County.

  • Mountain communities were impacted as well. Home sales fell in Summit, Grand, Routt, Gunnison and San Miguel counties.

  • Garfield County, home to Glenwood Springs, represented a rare pocket of strength, with home and condo sales both up more than 5 percent last month.

What’s happening in Colorado is trending with declining sales around the country. According to a recent update from the National Association of Realtors, existing home sales in the United States fell 3.4 percent in August from September to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.15 million. Year-over-year, they are down 4.1 percent.
