Northeast Region ~ Metro Denver Real Estate trends
East Suburban North offers the best buy in the Northeast Region for buyers. At the present time all the other areas are leaning toward a seller’s market. Aurora North still has the least expensive average sold price. Homes in North Suburban Central are selling with the least amount of Days of Market.
Southeast Region ~ Metro Denver Real Estate Trends
The Southeast area is doing very good overall. The area is experiencing a very short absorption rate with average days on market lower than in any other Metro Denver area. Aurora South has the highest appreciation in the Southeast Denver market. It also has the lowest average price. There’s something to be said for an area that has good prices and good schools. Homes are selling at an average of 89 days!
Southwest Region ~ Metro Denver Real Estate Trends
Metro Denver Southwest area has seen improvement since last month. The mountain areas (with the exception of Mtn. Evergreen North and Mountain Jeffco Central) are all rising out of that red zone. More homes sold, but at a lower average price than last month. Typical of a soft market the sellers who must sell are making adjustments in price. The weeks of inventory is dropping, as is the average days on market.
Northwest Region ~ Metro Denver Real Estate Trends
Northwest Metro Denver trends show an increase in Days on Market over last month 82 to 100. Mountain Jefferson North only had six sales for the month with an inventory of 57, which is an increase over 2 sales last month. Mountain Gilpin made the chart this month with four sales averaging 80 days on market. Congrats to them as they were absent last month from the chart.
Overall Area Winners
Denver Southeast has both the most inventory and the most sales with 1077 listings and 199 sold for the month of September 2011
Mountain Gilpin has the 104 weeks of inventory, which is the highest for the region. (good deals will be found here buyers!)

The areas with the least amount of inventory are Aurora North with 12.25 and Aurora South with 12.80 weeks of inventory. These areas are affordable thus the rush to purchase.
