Northeast Metro Denver Region Real Estate Sales Statistics Northeast Suburban Denver continues to offer the lowest average home price of all the Metro areas.  The average price for this month is $272,078.  Still inventory is diminishing with some of the lowest average “weeks of inventory” in the area.

Weeks of Inventory is just a gauge of how long it would take to sell the existing number of homes based on the numbers of homes for sale at the current time.  It does not take into account new homes that come on the market.  As a gauge of the market we can tell how competitive it is for sellers and how long it will take for them to receive and offer on their home.  Right now Sellers have the upper hand.  It is a strong sellers  market.

Northeast Metro Denver Region Zip Code Market Report

 

Northwest Denver Region Real Estate Sales Statistics

Real estate sales in the suburban Northwest Region of Metro Denver continue to close at a brisk pace.  Two areas are selling at a “Balanced Market” pace, funny how the yellow stands out as though it’s not a good thing when in reality a Balanced Market would be a blessing for buyers!  This area has a whopping 12 in Gilpin County -84 in Black Hawk weeks of inventory (a number in a few years ago that would have been delightful to see!).

Eleven out of the total 15 zip codes in this area are considered to be in an “Extreme Seller’s Market.”  What does this mean to buyers? Homes are selling quickly and often to the bidder with the highest and best bid.  It’s not a time to play “let’s make a deal!”  If you are buyer for this market, do your homework first or chance disappointment when you don’t win the bidding war.

NW Suburban Denver has the 4th highest average sale price out of the 5 metro regions at an average of $332,261.

Neighborhoods in this area include (but are not limited to):

Broomfield   Lafayette   Louisville

Arvada   Golden   Westminster

Market Watch Metro Denver

This past weekend I worked with 4 separate buyers.  Sounds exhausting?  Well it was, but not how you would think.

Typically when working with a buyer you set appointments, probably 5-7 on homes that might fit their budget and other criteria.  Well those days are past.  Now we are lucky to see that many homes in one outing.  The most homes I showed to one buyer this weekend was 4!  That’s because that’s all there were!

Buyers are Soaking up the Housing Inventory!

What’s happening in the Denver market?  We have a shortage in inventory and an abundance of buyers.  Our inventory is getting soaked up by anxious buyers wanting to become home owners before the interest rates go up.

Take a look at the 7-day stats for these Metro Denver Counties, look at the number of listings taken vs. the number of Under Contract.  That should explain why finding homes to look at is so difficult right now.

 What Does This Mean for Buyers?

If you are in the market to purchase a home, you will need to be ready.  Many homes are receiving multiple bids that means buyers who are qualified to buy and can prove it will win the bid.  Bidding wars can be brutal but have become a fact of life in the Denver real estate market, so be ready to bid over list price.  If you are a buyer who has a contingency ( a house to sell) sell your home and remove that contingency.  The reality is, the home owner is going to pick the BEST bidder from all the offers. The best may or may not be the highest net to them.  Sellers want to be assured their home will sell, so they look at many factors, including the buyer’s ability to sell, contingencies and net proceeds.

What Does This Mean for Sellers?

After many years of getting beaten up sellers are finally in the driver’s seat when it comes to negotiation.  Sellers are enjoying the luxury of very few days on market, multiple offers, over list price offers and quick closings.

Still sellers need to beware that many buyers will over bid your home knowing it won’t appraise.  If the buyer doesn’t have the means to pay the difference you won’t be enjoying that extra cash from the sale of your home.  If this is the case be sure your buyer has the ability and is WILLING to pay the difference. If they aren’t able and not willing their offer is just a cloud of wishful dust.  All you will have to show from this contract is wasted time!

What Does the Future Hold?

At this rate I am wondering if in April we will reach a point where there are ZERO listings to sell?  Is it possible?  I certainly hope not.

What do you think? Will we run out of properties to sell or will sellers decide to get into the market?

By the way out of my 4 buyers I found homes and went under contract for two of them.  The other two are still in the market.  We will continue our search!

100 Real Estate & Relocation Tips in 100 Days (Day 4)

The megalopolis called Denver often spans territory far beyond the actual boundaries of the City and County of Denver.  In fact, metro Denver covers at least 9 counties and is growing.

When relocating to the area, most begin with a search for “Denver Real Estate” knowing all the while they probably won’t end up in Denver, but in some close in city, neighborhood or ‘burb.

When researching the areas, it is important to know what county you are in.  Each Colorado County has it’s own tax base, Assessor, County Commissioners, Clerk & Recorder, Sheriff and Treasurer.

This map will give a good overview of the county’s relative position to Denver.

Have a Question on Land Use, Taxes, Zoning?

Call the county where you live or plan to locate.  The county usually has the answer to your question, or can direct you to where you can find the answer.

Emergency Alerts

Some counties are utilizing technology to alert citizens to emergency notices , updates on general news and events via email.  Counties also offer alerts for registered sex offenders living in the area.

Colorado County Websites are Great Resources

County websites are full of valuable information.  I’m finding they get better and better each year.  Be sure to check out a few different counties to see what I mean.  Enjoy Surfing the County Websites!
