Last Month's Paradox of Real Estate Trends

The Real Estate Paradox: Days on Market are Up, While Inventory is Down

Metro Denver’s residential real estate data for November is a bit all over the place. Active inventory has decreased by 6% since last year, yet homes are spending 15% more time on the market (equalling an extra 5 days on average). In fact, according to real estate agent Shelley Conger, "inventory set a new record low" despite the sizable increase in days on market. These two numbers seem at odds with each other… there’s less inventory (tipping the market scales even farther in favor of sellers), yet homes for sale are spending significantly longer on the market than this time last year! And, to make things even more confusing October saw 10% more Denver homes under contract

Denver Home Prices

As summer stepped out the door like a backpack clad child happily (you can read the sarcasm, right?) skipping off to school, August rode on by like the buzzing yellow school busses shipping those very happy kids off to school.

The thing is, all that bustle and fuss focused on moving back into a daily rhythm - August energy veers away from springtime house hunting and toward schedules, school days, and daily commitments.

Agents know that the real estate market steps in tune with the school calendar, so comparing this August’s trends to August of last year provides more insight than a comparison to last month.

You’ve read it in the news and heard the water cooler discussions: real estate trends aren’t what they were in May. The August

"The current data is hinting that the extreme sellers’ market is showing some early signs of easing,” explains listing agent Rebekah Robinson. This month’s market report from The Denver Metro Association of Realtors reveals several clues that buying an affordable Colorado home may become much less stressful in the near future.

CLUE 1: Average days on market 27 (Went down almost 7% since last month, but has gone up almost 4% since this time last year!)

Although homes are spending less days on the market as compared to last month, we’re seeing homes wait a bit longer to sell than this time last year. This means that buyers have a bit more time to get offers in and may be facing less intense competition.

CLUE 2: Active inventory is up by close

Denver Real Estate Market Report for June 2017 - As Colorado real estate takes its steady step up into summer, buyers are feeling the heat. With increases in listings lagging and ballooning numbers of buyers, Colorado home costs are on the rise and Denver homes for sale are going quickly. Sellers, take heart knowing that your home equity is in the safe hands of a booming market. But buyers, be on your toes for a lightning-paced purchasing process.

Single family homes were on the market for less days than the same time last year and the average price of a detached home was $490,700 - that’s almost a 10% increase over May of last year! Active inventory is up as well, but not quite enough to keep up with demand. Our Live Love Wag team pointed out

Spring in Denver brought an uptick in active listings, under contracts, and average sold prices. Some stabilization in the market may be on the horizon though. The continued rise in cost of low-end properties will most likely cause less demand and a slow leveling off of home prices.

Apparently, spring has already arrived in Denver. Not only are we experiencing unusually warm weather, the Denver real estate market is heating up earlier than ever. February experienced a surge of new listings with a month-over-month increase of nearly 20 percent, and a year-over-year increase of 6.81 percent.

However, the healthy increase in new listings was squelched by an equally healthy increase of properties placed under contract. Homes under contract increased 17.82 percent from last month, and 4.79 percent from February of last year.

Lots of homes can on the market, and lots of homes quickly sold. Leaving the number of active listings in the residential market at 3,878 total units in February, representing an all-time low for any month on

As 2016 has drawn to a close, the report identifies highs and lows in the housing market last year and how it compared to previous years.

“2016 will go down as another robust market defined by record-low inventories and record-high prices,” states Steve Danyliw, Chairman of the DMAR Market Trends Committee and Denver real estate agent.

“First, housing inventory has been an issue as evidenced by historically low numbers for the past three years,” he said. In February, DMAR recorded 3,963 active listings at month end, representing the lowest number of any month since housing data started being tracked in 1985. December 2016 finished with 4,265 active listings, which was 68.9 percent less than the historical December average of 13,702, and beat the
