Metro Denver Market Update

GREATER METROPOLITAN DENVER MARKET UPDATE
JUNE, 2012

Market Metrics:

May is the first full month of the prime home selling/buying season. We are continuing to see more of the same; that being, limited amount of inventory of homes available for sale, continuing/expanding buyer demand, and multiple offers that are now happening in the higher price ranges. The limited inventory of homes available for sale and high buyer demand has led to the bidding wars which are prevalent. Denver continues to be one of the strongest home markets in the country.

Advice to Sellers:

Recent surveys indicate that there is a shift in thinking when it comes to home ownership. Instead of looking at home ownership through the eyes of an economist, Americans are realizing that a home doesn’t solely equate to financial return or measure. The home is the emotional center of our lives, and it remains a critical component of who we are.

With the above being said; the inventory of homes for sale remains relatively low and the number of buyers increases daily. Are you prepared to be a seller? Have you done your homework, checked out the competition, taken care of all deferred maintenance items, and remodeled as necessary?

Sellers can improve their chances of getting a house sold by sprucing up the inside and out such that the home will create that lasting first impression.

Advice to Buyers:

Is home ownership still the American Dream? The Dream is alive. All indications are that the majority of Americans rated the importance of home ownership as 10 out of 10.
