Despite a Cool-Off, Denver Metro is still favoring Homes Priced Right & in Good Condition

2:55 pm

July Housing Update DMAR came to the table this month with some good data points about our current housing market, in addition to sharing their information we are also going to share what we are seeing in real time. What we noticed last weekend was that the drop-in interest rates did indeed bring more buyers out hunting, but it also saw new listings come to the market still overpriced. The Buyers we were working with were so perplexed by some of the homes they saw regarding condition and pricing and just walked away or refused to see homes that were…

10 Years of Housing Crash Stories Explained

11:57 am

  After watching Chris Magnotta’s video about this very subject we thought it would be interesting to include it in this week’s newsletter. The housing market “crash” has been talked about every year since 2007/2008 when it really took a nosedive (also the year we started our fist real estate company). Ever since then it has been predicted to crash because of some indicator or another every year. Most of us believe that a recession is coming our way in 2023, how wide or deep that takes our country remains to be seen. A recession influences the housing market differently…

June 2022 Housing Market Update A shift is upon us, for sure! Exactly how much of a shift remains unclear as the influencers to the market vary greatly. The big story this past month is inventory and the increase that June saw was huge. We are for the first time since early 2020 above more than a month of inventory available to choose from as a buyer. Other strong influences on inventory and our market are mortgage rates, 20% of all homes sold last year are investor purchases, inflation numbers, how many people stay in place because of Rate Lock, the…

May Denver Market Update

12:23 pm

  We are at the half- way point and this year the Housing Market will have 2 stories to tell. The first half of the year included never-before seen price appreciation and buyer’s relinquishing most of their contractual rights. What we are now seeing is the beginning of normalization for the Denver Housing Market. DMAR shared that executed purchase contracts have been declining for the last 6 months and are now coming in at the slowest pace in nearly a decade. We are not seeing the effects of higher interest rates totally but expect that to take hold after the…

Denver Market Update

4:33 pm

  Thanks again to DMAR for some great insights about our current Real Estate Market. It is indeed changing, and we can mostly point to hikes in interest rates and there are more to come. Andrew Abrams summed up what’s happening best when he said, “A more normalized market is healthy and breeds healthier decision-making. In the chaos of the recent market, buyers had been waiving their inspections, doing full appraisal gaps and even offering to make their earnest money non- refundable before getting an inspection. While those risks paid off in the form of equity, those days have passed,…
