Real Estate Market Update for Denver County, CO
Welcome to February's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of January. The number of active listings was down 26% from one year earlier, and down 25% from the previous month. This smaller inventory means that buyers who waited to buy may have had a smaller selection to choose from. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just under 540-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 12%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just over 330-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 15% year-over-year, and decreased 37% month-over-month. Higher year-over-year figures indicate that more buyers have been finding what they're looking for. Thanks for watching.
