Some more great news for Metro Denver homes for sale. While the statistic that stands out is the dramatic uptick in sold homes this August compared with last August (29%), pay attention to the drastic reduction in Active homes for sale. This year, we’ve seen a year over year reduction in homes on the market.

While this is a result of many factors, including some sellers “waiting out” the perceived bad market, this is helping those homeowners who do decide to sell their home. There is a distinct lack of inventory in the metro areas often resulting in several buyers bidding on the same home. Our team was involved in almost a dozen multiple bid offers this month. Some of those we represented the buyer (many on Denver HUD homes and Denver foreclosures), but several of those were on listings we had on the market.

If you are considering selling your home, give us a call to see what the market is like in your particular neighborhood. You might be surprised! 303-817-0209.
