Denver Homes for Sale: October Denver Housing Stats

Typically,  the number of Denver homes for sale  decreases in October, picking up again in January. However, this year, sales in October jumped up nearly 4% from September and an incredible 28% from October 2011! This increase in sales comes as inventory continues to remain down over 30% from 2011. This is causing buyers issues for buyers as many are struggling to find homes that meet their needs – especially in the under $350,000 market.

With the huge increase in sold homes, the inventory is continuing to shrink and we foresee prices on Denver homes for sale continuing to rise. If you are thinking of buying, now is the time to move. Rates are at historic lows, but prices look to be headed for a continued rise.
